14" T61p

Hi all,

I want to buy 14" T61, but P version (WSXGA+), was there ever some T61p with 14" screen ? I am searching on ebay, but no way. Only 15". I know that there was 14" t60p.

Today I received my 4965 AGN card from China and it is running well ( without updating bios ). Transfer speed in my local network is about 3x faster, than with Atheros G card. I use main + aux + 3G wwan anthenna as third one.

It is not possible, but there is USB thinkpad keyboard even with trackpoint. But it is little expensive, in my opinion.

Re: x41 problems

Try to install ThinkPad fan control application and turn cpu fan to high speed.

And what about GPU issue ? Like in t4x´s. I would try to make small pressure on GPU while laptop is running of course. If after removing pressure laptop freezes again it will be GPU imo.
