Re: EU seems to be in danger...

What's clear is that people adjust their perception of reality to their already established opinions. You're right as the view of a third person always is :) but in this context there is still one small detail. While the Nazi (or right-wing extremists) ideology and propaganda is considered as illeg...

Re: EU seems to be in danger...

And if you have a million people, you have million different people. Yes, so basically you need to work hard to support all these people as (maybe) no one will be able/willing to help your economy. And not everyone is happy by this idea. Violent Nazi ideology has been in Europe for a long time, so ...

My first Windows 10 installation was clean 1903 in UEFI mode and BIOS 1.46 (original). I haven't installed any Lenovo software, except update of Ultranav drivers (very old vulnerable version was installed by default).

Review sites also use the year number instead of the generation one so you have either Gen7 or 2019 model.

If these new model names are any indication, the T490 successor will be the T15, then differentiated with a Generation number like the X1 Carbon.

I wonder when they are going to ditch matte displays for glossy entirely. Lenovo matte displays are usually terrible garbage (typicaly 55% sRGB only or 700:1 contrast only or annoyning response time over 60 ms) that would be acceptable in a 500 Euro laptops, but not 2000+ ones.

I think we have found it. I replaced the original HDD with 2.5" SSD (Intel 535) and use the HDD as second drive in UltraBase in caddy. There has always been issues with drives in the mSATA slot dedicated for WWAN module.
