Re: Found WTB W701 or W701ds

I believe the dreamcolor models have a small symbol in the upper right of the display assembly. It looks like a small, multicolored circle/wheel.

I bought a third party colorimeter, and use displaycal software.

SOLD X230 in X220 body

I will be selling several of my ThinkPads in the next few days. This one is in perfect condition, like new. Aside from the mini-display port it looks like new X220, but has X230 i7 power.  It has a i7 3520M motherboard, new IPS panel (LP125WH2), new hinges, new battery (9-cell), and all new external...

W701 upgrade question

When upgrading the W701, does it require Lenovo specific CPUS and GPUs? I believe the fastest processor is the 940xm, and the GPU the 3800m, but do they need Lenovo FRUs to work properly? Even though the 940xm is the fastest, is there another one that is more readily available and a sweet spot for p...

RBS, yes, we've been in touch. I have no idea what to ask for this laptop since it's in such good condition. I figured I would just list it on ebay and let the market decide.

Well, it arrived from ebay. Dirty condition, with aftermarket power supply.

So, back in the market for 2015 MacBook Pro. Prefer 15", but will consider 13" as well.
