Re: FS: A lot of Thinkpads of various ages and conditions

I see there is a deal pending. If the W701 or the good working W700 doesnt get sold, i'm interested. Preferably the W701 however.

FS: minor X240 parts

Stripped down a severely damaged X240. Got minor stuff like touchpad, wifi, fp reader, smartcard reader, left hinge, speakers etc. Board and fan is buggered. Lcd cable looks whole but probably buggered internally, frame and keyboard cracked but the keys themselves are fine. No lcd assembly, no botto...

Regarding the X301, could you check how much shipping would be to sweden?

Also, do you have a picture of the damage?

Re: Any street motorcyclists?

I ride a -18 Romet Adventure 125 and a -07 Piaggio MP3 250.

I mostly ride the MP3 due to extremely poor roads where i live. Dropped the romet twice, while the three wheeled MP3 seems to handle it fine.

Gonna swap a quad into my new T430 so i'm looking for the "good" dgpu heatsink. I think its the one with the toshiba fan if i remember correctly. Further research pointed med to FRUs 04W3269, 0B41088 and 04W3270. Also looking for a T420 keyboard to swap in. Prefer NMB with Swedish or Danish layout....

WTB: (EU) T430 w/dGPU barebone

Found locally. Looking for a T430 with a dGPU. I'd prefer a barebone unit as i have all the parts but i'll take what i can get. Its slim pickings around here on T430s. Most of them have integrated graphics only. Could survive with that but i'll check here first. Presentable units please, but wear is...

Absolutely insane. I love it.

Cringe moment when i read about the liquid metal. I've been tasked with repairing the results after somone incorrectly put liquid metal in a laptop. There was liquid metal everywhere and it shorted everything. Dayumm. Hate that stuff.

I was looking for a dGPU motherboard, so a machine in bad cosmetic condition would've made sense, but from the US its just not economically feasible. Thanks anyway, mate.

(Found) WTB: T400 and T61 parts (EU Only)

Hi,

Looking for a T400 bottom and possibly a frame, gonna double check on the latter.

And a T61 keyboard. Preferred layouts are Swedish/Nordic, US English (Or Hebrew) or Hungarian. In that order.

Due to unreasonable 'Guvmint Theft i'd prefer an EU only seller.

Turns out you cant drop them from any height... One very dirty workshop rig that took a dive from a lorry cabin. Still works fine. It seems however the keyboard is messed up. Seems like it ripped the stud right off and its loose. And i've got a dozen dead keys and stuck key warning on boot. https://...

I have at least one Q9100 processor here - so I could make another T400 if you want. Might be interested in that depending on the price. I was mainly looking for a libreboot/core flashed t400. I would probably make due with one of the X9100s i have laying around. But its the libreboot/core flashing...
