*SOLD* FS: X61s with SXGA+ *SOLD*

I have a X61s with SXGA+ screen for sale. The bezel props up a bit due to using the X61 tablet screen in there, but it works fine with no problem. The wireless is upgraded to 5300AGN, and the HDD is a Toshiba mSATA 64GB SSD connected to an adapter. 3GB RAM and L7700 (best processor available) Custom...

Re: ~250DPI/retina screen for X220 Tablet would be suitable now

I wouldn't be surprised if the next X230 will have super high-res display. Heck, the next gen Asus ultrabook will offer IPS 1080p in both 11.6 and 13.3 inch models even (yes, I said IPS!) http://liliputing.com/2012/03/report-asus-ivy-bridge-ultrabooks-to-feature-1080p-displays.html It is indeed good...

If you want a ~12" laptop with quad core, you purchased the wrong laptop; try this one instead:

Re: When will the X series get discreet graphics?

The Air has it I believe , and it's the only thing lacking. i'd happily give up some battery life in exchange for an improved gpu. guessing i'm in the minority? The Air only has it in the C2D model, due to the small CPU die. In the newest Air, there is only integrated Intel graphics (HD3000). Hones...

In my honest opinion, you're better off with a Vaio Z1 if screen real estate is important to you. I prefer my FHD Z1 to my X61s with SXGA+ display, so t...

Won't fit (12.5" vs. 13.1"), plus it's a TN panel, doesn't look as nice as IPS screen in X220T. Besides, connector may not be compatible.

Someone in San Jose has one for $199 but also has lower spec'ed T60s for less (or so he claims). Good luck, it's doable - if you don't need...
