Feeler: Intel Core i3 4130 Haswell CPU ***SOLD SOLD SOLD***

Just checking to see if there is any interest in this Haswell desktop CPU I am trying to sell. I've had this i3 4130 for nearly 3 years now and plan on upgrading soon. I bought the i3 4130 brand new in late 2014 and it has been running very well! It will come with in the original box with literature...

I agree! I have been using Macrium Reflect for the last 2 years and find it very easy to create an image and restore it if need be. Easy peasy!

Re: Installing classic keyboard into X230 with EC firmware mod

I have written some more instructions and added some helper scripts to do the patch enabling/disabling. Have a look at the docs/CONFIG.txt file in the repo and see if that helps you.

Re: Installing classic keyboard into X230 with EC firmware mod

There is indeed - you just need to rename the patches to apply the battery patch and not apply the keyboard patches. There is some information in the repo readme for this - have a look and see is that makes sense to you. Not too confident about executing this procedure! If anyone could help me I wo...

Re: Installing classic keyboard into X230 with EC firmware mod

A little late to the party here! I do not mind the backlit chiclet keyboard of my X230 however the battery validation check is irritating. Is there a way to use the EC firmware mod to only remove the battery validation check and allow me to keep the chiclet keyboard?

Re: Downgrade the T410 to a T61

If there is no other possible way to cover your financial situation aside from selling your T410 then sell it. Sometimes sacrifices have to be made. I've done it a few times with items (including tech) when times got tough. As always those items for the most part were replaceable. One thing to consi...

Re: X201 Tablet vs X131E

So I purchased a refurbished X201 Tablet about a week ago at a great price ($120) but now see that I can get an X131E refurbished for $200. Wondering if it would be worth taking the X201 back and getting the X131E instead? Anyone have a good comparison? I know the X131E has USB 3.0 and HDMI out, ho...

Re: Swapping screens X220 to X230

That is what I suspected. I have never seen an X230 in person but from photos the X220 and X230 seem similar enough that several parts could be swapped between the both of them if needed. Depending on how busy I get this weekend I may do the lid swap as a temporary fix and then do the LCD swap at so...

Swapping screens X220 to X230

I will be receiving an X230 soon and am sure it is a model with a TN panel. Not sure if this has been asked but could one simply remove the whole top lid of an X220 and place it on the X230 body? My current X220 has an IPS screen and I would like the IPS screen in my soon-to-be X230. Anyone have any...

Re: X220 or X250

@Sendoushi. If you are more comfortable using the trackpad you might want to disable Chiral Scrolling and Pinch-to-Zoom. I find that OOB (or after a clean OS install) that all special trackpad features are turned on which IMO are not optimal on such a small trackpad. I am not in front of my X220 (wh...

Re: Replacing T60 speakers with a better one

I once modded T500 speakers into a 14" 4:3 T61. However, it requires cutting the frame and it doesn't sound that good in the end. This is an interesting observation. When I had my T500 I thought the overall fidelity of sound was quite good relative to other Thinkpads I have used. I wonder what made...

Re: Will PC3-10600 RAM work in a T410?

Every DDR3 laptop DIMM will fit in either slot on T410 - or any of the *00, *10, *20, *30 series for that fact - but both T400 and T410 have proven to be finicky when using faster RAM in my not-so-modest experience with these systems. Having said that, since you have the RAM at your disposal, try i...
