Re: Wifi Antenna removal / replacement

Yes, have done a number of x301 & x201 lid replacements and successfully moved the antennas into the new lid. Secret is a hair dryer to apply moderate heat to soften the antenna foil's adhesive. Then, starting from the bottom of the foil, slowly pull it up - a thin blade to start it works well. Near...

Re: X201s i7-LM640 LV Motherboard FRU 63Y2074 upgrade to X200s

It's very easy to break the rear keyboard bezel (I've done it). Best way to remove it is use your fingernail to pop it up from the base. Starting on the left side and working around worked best for me - don't try lifting up by the side arms. I seem to remember another user doing this swap and he fou...

Re: What is the "current" X301?

You might look at the Thinkpad 13.

I've yet to get my hands on one but it looks interesting (from an owner of five x301s).

Re: [pictures] TV Prop W500 spotted on eBay (maybe)

Had another Thinkpad/Colorware sighting this weekend - actually two.
'The Big Short' has a blue x301 and what appears to be a black W or T500.
No doubt about the x301 and there is only a quick glimpse of the 500 lid with the MS logo but the hinges looked about right.

Re: [pictures] TV Prop W500 spotted on eBay (maybe)

Yes, it says Colorware. I dunno why people always use gloss paint when they refinish plastic electronics. It looks bad. The gloss you see is from a very thick layer of clear coat which has done a very good job protecting the paint layer. I wouldn't be surprised if they sent the laptops to Colorware ...

These custom MS laptops were done by Colorware: http://www.colorware.com/ I’ve read they were made for the MS sales department but have no way to confirm that.

Re: x200 with 45N6091

Your best bet for a complete WXGA+ lid assembly is finding a cheap, incomplete or damaged WXGA+ x200s. Not every x200s has a WXGA+ LCD but by looking at the LCD bezel you can tell if it does. The LENOVO brand on the WXGA+ bezel is near the left hinge and on the WXGA is near the right hinge. When I l...

Sorry, you're right - should wear my reading glasses more often.

I would get a new base rather than try to repair it.
Should take less than an hour to swap - the first time probably longer.

The two cracks in your pic are in the (very delicate) keyboard bezel.
Very easy to break when it's lifted up from the thin end.
Cheap to replace.

OTOH, it really adds no structural stiffness to the laptop.

Re: Is it worth getting the "s" versions of the x200 & x201 because of the higher resolution screen?

You can tell if an x200s/201s has a 1440 or a 1280 LCD by looking at the LCD bezel. A WXGA+ 1440x900 will have the Lenovo branding next to the left hinge. A WXGA 1280x800 will have the branding by the right hinge. Chances of finding a WXGA+ x201s are pretty slim and even then you’re probably looking...

FS: x301 in very good but not perfect condition - REDUCED

Probably the last SU9400 x301 I’ll be listing – good parts are getting pretty rare. This one looks very nice but has several flaws, subtle but there. 1. LCD has a faint ‘bruise’. I worked on the laptop for two days without noticing it; only after going to the BIOS page was it visible. There is a pic...

Re: X201 screen possibilities?

Another clue as to which LCD an x200s has can be found on the LCD bezel: WXGA 1280x800 has the Lenovo brand near the right hinge WXGA+ 1440x900 has the Lenovo brand near the left hinge. As FryPpy said the left to right seam on the lid is also definitive if you can't see the bezel. Seam: WXGA No seam...
