Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

For some reason I lost some updates here :eek: So, I'm considering outsourcing PCB assembly to get kits done faster. There will be a third batch, but I can't give ETA for it. Anybody here attending ExpoElectronica 2017 in Moscow? Where did the 2nd batch go though?? I thought I registered on the Goo...

Re: Wanted:T420s intel 6300 Wi if card

The 6300 and 6200 cards have the same hardware, while the 6300 supports an extra antenna (three in total). I see no reason why the 6200 card shouldn't have worked.

Re: Re: HV121WX4-120 (Matte AFFS panel) on X200 (Pics inside)

If you want to install AFFS screen into X200s , get 1280x800 version: for it you'll need a panel itself, and if a laptop comes with LED back-light, you'll need LCD cable and inverter board. I've heard that 1440x900 versions cannot be upgraded w/out replacing the entire screen assembly - can't confi...

I find the keyboard on the X200 to be much nicer as well. The X60s keyboard is without a doubt phenomenal (especially given the diminutive size of the machine), but after having used an X200 keyboard the X60s just feels a tiny bit undersized. The X60 keyboard is definitely better if looked from one...

Well, if the TRIM will work in XP then go for it. I can't test one for you since I don't have one. If anyone actually wanted to send me one I'd benchmark it :roll: I can't either because I don't have a T43p nor a Intel SSD. But yes U Intel has it's own software for XP, which does the TRIM function....

Re: Is the X200 superior to the X60s?

X200 runs 1080p videos from youtube, where the X60 doesn't. 9cell battery lasts 6-7hr. Also the coolness of X200 is comparable to X60s.

@rkan Yes, I was referring to Zender's modified BIOSs.
