Yes! :)

An the official support for windows 10, if this matters. EC controller mod is necessary for the x220 battery compatibility.

You can also get a x230 mobo and put it into the x220 chassis. Just see the link in my signature (x225 Frankenpad).

Re: x301 complete overhaul + FSB overclocking + pictures

I really like what you have done with your X301 and I still use mine daily. The screen ratio / resolution suits me and I like the build. The soldering for the FSB overclock mod is probably beyond me but I might get someone in Perth to do the job for me. For what I do on the X301 I have enough power...

I wish I could say yes but there is still a smell in the keyboard I could not wash.
But the chassis is clean. It worked.

Guys, this x60t with the ultrabase need to go. I bought it because of the screen but the screen was faulty anyway. Otherwise it worked. There are 2x1GB memory modules.

Please share your experience as soon as possible. My GF has been looking for a new laptop and this is an attractive solution. However,she also needs some kind of a docking mechanism. USB-C would do in case it works.
Can this thing run two external lcd screens (FHD) ?

I have parts for the t42p and will fly to the U.S. in May. I would bring it and ship it with USPS if you wait.
The keyboard is German layout though. Don't have the battery.

I have practically complete disassembled T42p. Only the mobo is faulty. I can check for the condition and share pictures. As far as I remember the palmrest was with the fingerprint reader. Shipping would be from Germany though..

Both models were basically brought out only in Japan. Rare? Yes. Expensive? Not really (new around €1,200 / $1,365)....

Just for sake of curiosity... Which were the most expensive Thinkpads at the time of release you remember (types, configs?). Today, it would be probably X1E, x30x was also super expensive. However, I am a youngster and don't remember the old era much. Also, which happen to be the rarest thinkpads? N...
