Ah ok that's actually nice! Just wish it had a gtx 1060/1070 now.. lol the 1050ti seems to be the bottle neck in this case...

Re: Old member looking for new laptop

If you haven't seen the brand since the X230, the quality has gone down hill pretty good. I was not particularly fond of the build quality the x230. I think I ended up selling it after 2 months later here after getting my macbook. It seem the x1 is their flagship so I would hope they put their best...

I am coming for a macbook pro. Looking for something light and slim but still be able to handle some graphic design and photo editing. The mac served that purpose, it was still a bit on the heavy side. I was looking at the new x1 extreme with the 1050ti. Specs show 3 lbs fully loaded. I did apprecia...

Old member looking for new laptop

I have been a long time member here, but have been out of the thinkpad scene for about 5-6 years. Started with the T30, then T-41 (rip) to my prized T42-P in 2005. Had the x230 very briefly then switched to mac. Had all variations of the macbook, imac etc. Now I am back to PC and always think of the...

Re: T60 Keyboard Comparison (with embedded pics)

This is a great thread that deserves a bump. I found this while seraching information about the different thinkpad keyboards. I have a T61p and am looking for an NMB keyboard. I thought they were made in Thailand, or is that for the earlier NMB keyboards?

Re: Dim screen T61p

Thanks all for the information. The screen does go dimmer when I dim the screen and the computer is hooked up via power supply. Is there someplace that can get the CFFLs changed or upgraded to something newer. The 1920x1200 is a remarkable screen, the current T series has max resolution of 1920x1080...

Dim screen T61p

Hello All,

I have a T61p with a 1920x1200 screen resolution. The screen seems very dim at highest brightness. It is a 6 year old laptop and it has been a while since I used it so perhaps thats how the screens were back then?

Is this a common issue for laptops of this age?

Thanks

I will wait for IPS display and 4g connectivity, that will work for me.

Mini Dock Plus

The Mini Dock Plus has 5 video outs (2x DVI, 2x DP, 1x VGA)
What is the point of so many outputs if you can only use 2?

Is there a way to split the desktop to more than 2 screen outputs?
