Apple won't help people remove the prior iCloud account.

Re: Is it still worth to buy T60?

Re: New to Forum and T410 RAM question

Welcome to the forum! You can certainly remove the 2GB SODIMM and install a 4GB for 6GB total. I believe there is still a slight benefit to using the same sized SODIMMs in both slots, but the performance increase can't possibly be noticeable. Also, you can mix and match SODIMMs, PC3-8500, PC3-10600,...

Re: Can a T43 LCD be used in a T60?

I have also rarely happened across T43 panels with the EDID chip, but they were perhaps later models or (for all I know) Lenovo service replacements that were made for multi-use in any T4x or T60/R60. Bottom line, do not count on a T43 panel working in a newer machine...but it might!

Microsoft was selling the Surface RT 32GB for $199. They sold out and they also sold out of the newer Surface 2 32GB & 64GB and the original Surface RT 64GB. Best Buy sold out and Micro Center sold out, too.

Good for Microsoft. They finally built a nice tablet and got the pricing right.
