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

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...

This means that if you order your part by the part number we may send a different part number but it will be 100% compatib...

But the KB mod doesn't provide 100% compatibility AFAIK and my eyes are getting to old to appreciate the FHD mod on a small screen I did the retrofit to a couple of T430 and X230 and as far as I remember only the CapsLock LED doesn't work.

Re: Just picked up a Thinkpad T430 for cheap!

T430s are nice machines. Don't forget you can retrofit a 7 row keyboard rather easily, and of course do the famous FHD Mod!

CPU wise, IMO you should expect a good performance increase compared to the old Core2Duo SU9x000 generation. :wink:
