Re: Positive feedback for FAIR Traders

Got a second X200.1s from Edward Mendelson, and the transaction could not have gone smoother. Great machine, safely packed, super-quick ship -- perfect :thumbs-UP:

Re: The Best Most Compatable internal AC Wifi chip/card and external AC Wifi for Lenovo W520

I have a W510 with the with the 6300; my son has a W520 with a 6205; and other son has a W530 with a 6300. All three machines work great on our home wifi. I don't have a clue what the best upgrade would be. Looks to me you have posted your question in the wrong sub-forum, i.e. Thinkpad X6x Series. T...

Re: From T410 To X230

Happy Birthday (on the 20th) :)
I'm betting you will like the size of the X230 and also will not notice an appreciable difference in the i5 vs. i7.
Post back when you get your new machine.

Re: T530: Sudden slow WiFi

Guessing you may have already tried this...
Uninstall the adapter driver in Device Manager -- reboot and then scan for new hardware in Device Manager.
After adapter is reinstalled, see if wireless speeds improve.

Re: Win7 Update hangs

How I love this Forum!! I had to fresh install Windows 7 on two machines this week -- one each for two of my sons as Christmas gifts. Little did I suspect the Windows Update fiasco I would encounter. Spent two days on the first, a W520 for my adult special needs son, before I checked here for the fi...

Very pleasant transaction with db999md for an excellent X1 Carbon -- easy communication and super-quick ship, with the X1 arriving at my home safe and sound, wrapped like a baby in its cardboard cradle. Thanks very much for a perfect transaction :thumbs-UP:

Thanks very mcuh Sleepy664! That's the info I wanted to make sure of -- I didn't want to order and find out I'd misunderstood what I needed. I think my son might like glossy, but not sure if I can find one.

I did it! :) My 'new' W510 now has a 1920x1080 FHD-Glossy screen. I ordered from laptopscreens.com, and when I changed the screen, the back tags on the new and old both appeared to be the same LG brand. I plan on using this W510 for netflix and amazon instant videos. One more learning step for this ...
