Re: T420s/T430s WQHD kits pre-order

currently the newer revision of the chip has better compatibility however money, risk and time are the problems. So it's coming after the WQHDs Sounds promising, I understand the financial risk, but on the other hand I think this mod was also quite requested here and in the German sister forum. So ...

Re: ThinkPad W530 replace monitor to full HD

Welcome to the forum!

Yes, that screen will work, it's a plug&play replacement and actually the best panela available.

Be careful when buying one that you get an original B156HW01 V4! Ask for picture and avoid "compatible" models.

Re: Finally pictures of non-US T25-Retro keyboards

I have a Swiss-layout keyboard for T4x/R5x somewhere but am too tired to look for it right now, pretty sure that it also sports some 4-character keys. They're up to five actually: ¦àä ¦ ¦äà{¦ But they're basically three symbols in total, if you have German as standard language, you get " ä " by pre...

I have a question to the screens, for the T520 you said that you have an Innolux one, which I though were generally not so good, have you had the chance to compare it against the AUO B156HW01 v4 panel? (Which is still regarded as the best available for this generation).

Re: T Series Body

T400, R400, T61 14.1" widescreen, and R61 14.1" widescreen are compatible. Are you sure about the above? I thought the R- cases were taller/thicker than the T's Now that I think about it you could probably put a W board in its frame in a T body and vice versa. I did install a W510 board (with its o...

Re: Question about the T500 vs T520

other than using different memory chips... Both models use DDR3 RAM. Though I really like the T500, I think the T520 will be a better choice. You get a much better CPU, double the RAM (16GB vs 8GB) and mSata support (which can be handy in some cases). They keyboard layout used in the T520 is the be...

Re: Upgrading from T440s to X220: pros/cons?

I would also keep the T440s, the CPU will be more power efficient and the integrated Intel graphic card is also better. The only argument for the X220 would be if you *have to* have 16GB RAM, since the max RAM you could get in the T440s is 12GB

I don't have a list of compatible models (apart from the ones mentioned before).

Re: Thinkpad W520 screen replacement. Suggestion on after market screens.

My impression of this screen was not good. It was very very red! Definitely defective, this screen is regarded as the best screen for this series. I have few of these screens and non of them have a red tint. As alternative you could try the B156HW01 v7 , which is the same as v4 but glossy (provided...

I replaced my KB today. It's not so difficult as it may sound, the white layer is quite sturdy and can be removed easily with a guitar pick. Patience is needed to screw all tiny screws back in place, but apart from that nothing special. I took some pictures of the replacement keyboard, for the curio...
