Re: Thinkpad Tablet 10: charging battery

There is no point, it uses Li-Polymer battery (laptop batteries are Li-ion). Just enjoy it while it works, it can be replaced. My ThinkPad 8 tablet battery still have 90% of its original capacity after two years and more than 450 cycles.

Re: What exactly was the R series trying fit?

R series were noticeably cheaper than their T siblings having similar configuration but 1 cm more thicker. For instance my R51 (that had similar specs to T42) was more than 25% cheaper 13 years ago.

Re: Sony MDR-XB950B1 Bluetooth headphones with ThinkPad R51 and Windows XP ?

I still don't know whether the lack of Bluetooth 4.0 is problem or not. In the worst case I would use ThinkPad 8 tablet as music source (its terrible analog audio output is not an issue here) but I would prefer current ThinkPad R51 setup. Just asking if anyone has tried such setup by a chance.

Sony MDR-XB950B1 Bluetooth headphones with ThinkPad R51 and Windows XP ?

I use my ThinkPad R51 as "jukebox" with VLC player connected to Hi-Fi amplifier because the analog audio output quality is surprisingly good unlike X220 and many other current laptops. My almost 20 years old Sennheiser HD 265 headphones are getting old and I think about a Bluetooth headphones. Has a...

The nw look, looks busier and more cluttered. Having said that, the author's box on the right have a lot of empty unused space on a 1080p screen.
I second that. The style has width:22% that's too much.
