Re: BIOS with whitelist disabled?

What about just buying the Lenovo Intel card on eBay? I bought those for all my older Thinkpads no issues. Just make sure it is for Lenovo and not the generic one such as this one: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wireless-AC-7260-7260HMW-Wifi-Bluetooth-4-0-Mini-PCI-E-Card-for-Intel-Lenovo-/351021919254?pt=U...

Thanks for the impressions. I'm hoping to get one soon too (to finally upgrade my T410s). :banana:

Re: X1 Carbon 2014 vs T440s

You might be interested in knowing that neither of those two laptops will be any faster than your T410s by nature of their ULV processors. Their maximum turbo boost is comparable to your old processor using no boost- Haswell isn't distinguishable from Arrandale/Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge apart from po...

Re: 410 vs 410S etc.

As you'll see from my signature, I had a ...,T400, T410 and now a T410s. This is all within the space of a few months also and i'll tell you why. I had a really nice T400, more than powerful enough (P8600) and thin and light (for a 14" machine). Ended up getting the T410 (Core i5, WXGA) because of t...

Re: T400 or T410 -- Which is better for price?

Well for the price difference then definitely get the T400. If the money is not a issue then might as well get the T410 (if the screen resolution wasn't bothering you). I for one try to avoid that resolution like the plague. I had a T410 and sold it partly for that reason. To upgrade it to the WXGA+...

Re: On a T41 What are the hinges for? I

Hehe, he's simply asking if the monitor can be disconnected to rotate it (think Tablet screen) and the answer is no. The hinges are big and strong to not wear out over time (like some other companies where the screen gets wobbly after 6 months!)

Re: battery discharge order changed by now?

You can always hibernate and/or shutdown to replace batteries. The UltraBay battery could fix that problem by still powering the system even after the main battery has been pulled out to swap. This is good in cases where you are downloading something or doing some running work and you just can't shu...

Power Manager can only read what the battery tells it. If the battery says 37wHrs but only has 9wHrs then Power Manager will show you 37. After 2yrs (now 3 i guess since the first post was from January! :D - i think i had a T61 then also) then you can say you've gotten good usage out of that battery...

Re: Buying used Thinkpad t400 for $425. Good Deal?

Hell yeah, the T400 i had was similar but less features and i paid $500 for that in June and I thought that was a smoking deal. I ended up selling it and buying a T410 however but sold it for the same $500 and the new owner still loves it like crazy!

I think at the time i was just younger and couldn't afford the Thinkpad but the latitudes were cheap(er). I went to a temporary data e...

The galaxy S devices support HSUPA: HSDPA:HSDPA 7.2 Mbit/s .HSUPA:HSUPA 5.76 Mbit/s As you can see, it should get better results than the Gobi2000.

Re: Gobi 2000, AT&T, and HSUPA

Weird, anything over 300 should be HSUPA since UMTS is 384/384. HSDPA only changes the download speed so if you are getting 600 then you are going close to the 2.0Mbps max of the card anyways.

Which phone do you have? Maybe your phone has a faster HSUPA speed than the card.
