Re: X62/X63 - will there be a new batch?

For me, the 16:9 screen is suitable for watching movies and has nothing to do with productivity. Another thumbs up for 4:3 or 3:2 screens! If Lenovo could just make one model T or X business oriented Thinkpad I'll go shopping...! My trusty T43 with W7 died recently (4:3) and I can't overcome my dis...

Re: What X220 IPS to look for?

The OP could go either way, X220 or X230, as long as it's has i7-speedy, classic X220 keyboard, IPS, USB 3 and webcam. And it should be in Grade A shape, functionally and visually. Plus W7 Pro (not W10) installed, ready to go w/o mods on my side. Still looking!

Re: What X220 IPS to look for?

I think someone may have been confused, thinking you are looking just for the IPS panel, and not a complete laptop. Yes, it looks that way. But, as a result, pretty good info on the IPS panel issue nevertheless. I'm still looking for a Grade A used/refurbished X220 i7-2640M IPS with webcam and a US...

Re: What X220 IPS to look for?

The LP125WH2(SL)(T1) is the only LCD option for the Lenovo Thinkpad Twist S230u. If you find a complete lid assembly of an S230u, it's certain to have that particular screen. IIRC you need to remove the protective glass layer, but it doesn't appear to be a difficult job. Not sure what the Twist S23...

Re: What X220 IPS to look for?

The panel you want is the LP125WH2(SL)(T1). Get it from an S230u or new. Price maximum would be around $150 for an i7 X220/X230 without IPS, $200 with IPS Please elaborate. I get it that that panel type is the preferred one (and hard to find...), however, not sure what you mean by "get it from a [T...

How about X230 with an X220 keyboard? If that's a good/solid combination why not .. depending on the rest of the specs and condition. Presumably the screen size is the same as I prefer anything on the legacy 4:3 side over wide 16:9 side. Do you have a X230 with X220 keyboard in store? I normally us...

Re: What X220 IPS to look for?

Thanks. Good point as I definitely want USB 3. I gather this is a good basis: i7-2640M (2.8GHz, 4MB L3 cache). What else should I look for .. as I know there are several USA versions/types of the X220 with Core i7 CPU and IPS screen?

Re: Where can I find specs on a T420s 4174-F68

The good things going for it are the 6GB RAM and 1600x900 screen. Besides that, it's average specs-wise, nothing fancy. Then again, not having nVidia graphics means lower CPU temps (always a good thing). An SSD upgrade, whether as a replacement for the HDD, or as an add-on mSATA SSD,is highly recom...

And, has FRU 62P4553 the curved bezel for T4x or a straight one used by T6x?
