Re: Using Windows 7 key on Windows 10 and still using Windows 7?

That's good to know then. I think Microsoft should just allow Windows 7/8 keys to upgrade to Windows 10 anytime they want since they already done it. If anything they probably already allow this but just told the crowed the free upgrade is over to make people go buy a 10 key. I read a few days ago t...

No 64 bit intel pentium 4 mobile?

I got my IBM ThinkPad G40 out and started to use it again. I think I had it maxed at 2GB RAM and still has its 80GB IDE HDD. I was wanting to see of upgrading the processor to a Prescott HT as my G40 has a Northwood 2.80GHz. From what I can see in the mobile there is no 64bit processor Pentium 4M. B...

Re: Looking for a ThinkPad W700

I was looking at the W500 and was wondering if the W500 has the same specs as the 700 minus the 17" and dual HDD bay and NUMpad. Would the W500 support a Intel Core 2 Extreme CPU as all I see is Core 2 Duo? The W500 by looks, looks almost 100% like the T500. And does anyone have a W500 they would li...

Ok thanks. I kind of figured they did quit making them just wasn't sure. And I was going to use a external GPU as I wouldn't trust a graphics card that requires a lot of power.

ThinkPad Advance Dock for T410+

Did Lenovo quit making large docks for ThinkPads T410 and newer? I like the large docks as it gave lots of extra ports plus a extra drive bay and better a PCIe slot. I been looking to get a graphics card for mine as this website shows "Looks like a Russian website" . http://www.retropcmania.com/2012...

Re: ThinkPads with Pentium IIIs

From what I see with the A22e and A22m the A22e can do 850MHz and the A22m can do 1GHz. I wonder if the sockets are the same type or not. I do know once IBM got into the 2000s CPUs were starting to become upgradable like sockets in desktops. I do know the 600X has its processor on a removable board.

No I had ThinkPads from 760 and older get cracks and such without me even cleaning them. I guess over time the plastic just get really weak. I found mostly get weak on where the hinges attach to the base and breaks a corner off the base.
