Hello there, I need to do this too -- might I ask, which part do you heat up? The trackpad side or the bottom, where the electronics are?

Re: X301 Modded BIOS

Wow, forgive me for being late to the party, but yes, despite it being 5 years later, I am interested in the modded bios for the X301 too.

Amy possibility for getting it?
I just have to remember how to do the PM thing for the link to that German fella.

Re: UltraLIGHT 180nits LCD For my NON-Ultralight X61s

To replace the non-UltraLight screen with FRU #13N7092 requires replacing the LCD case, the bezel, the LCD cable, and the hinges. The inverter, the antennas, and the bluetooth module (if you have it) can be reused. Yeah, I hear what you are saying, but I thought the process and parts you describe a...

UltraLIGHT 180nits LCD For my NON-Ultralight X61s

So, I wonder, can I replace my NON-Ultralight LCD on my X61s with an ultraLIGHT 180nits LCD?

Not correct. On the X3x with X3 ultrabase you can attach a second main system battery to the rear of the ultrabase. The connector is hidden by a removable plastic cover. You get double the battery life because you have two full size, main system batteries. Well, almost...almost 2X the life...but ba...

No, you need a UJ-842S or higher for Dual layer (those are VERY expensive). I have one of them, but it is $195 shipped (etailer value of about $250).
Hi!

The 100G IS a 7200rpm hdd...being newer and with possibly more efficient drive reads/writes, I can see it being a wee bit better than the older 60K 7.2K unit.
