Re: X62 problems, quirks, and fixes

Here is also a pro tp. Since you wont' be needing the X60/1 media slice dock anymore, you can open it up and use the stereo speakers in it (4 pin, 2 speakers). Cool! Is that a drop in or are there modifications to be made? Drop in but you might want to attach some adhesive on the speakers to hold t...

Re: How many of you have already got the X62? And any new interest?

Nope. The X60 has a tinted window for IR => stays there non-functional in the X62 mod. The X61 has no IR. Both however have Firewire which is ommitted in the X62 and leaves an opening. Ah, yes, correct you are. Forgot about the firewire, and I was looking down at my X61t-> X62 at the time of the po...

I'll also followup about posting some X61t information for those who find this thread and wonder about the tablet conversion....

Re: How many of you have already got the X62? And any new interest?

I've got my hands on a 3rd batch x62 board, with an x61 (not x61s) fan. It came with a palmrest (top case cover), not sure why that needs to be replaced. But there's no documentation. If anyone knows where there's any specific installation doc (other than the standard x61 maintenance manual), a lin...

Re: X62 problems, quirks, and fixes

With the spare internal USB port, you can probably fit one of those WWAN-Adapter things next to the sound board and have both. Seems to lack a 2nd true mPCIe lane though, which is sad.

Nope, there wasn't and isn't but I think someone was suggesting upgrading the CPU. They must think the CPU would be compatible with the motherboard.

What was the issue with the board that was faulty? Screen freezes, guess reason is Pseudo Soldering or a faulty CPU......

Re: How many of you have already got the X62? And any new interest?

Is there any hope at ordering these together at this point? There is 4th batch order underway and if this thread is dead, I'd go out on my own and try to make out as best as I can. I'm looking for two units -- one I'm going to use in a X61, and one, trying my luck in a X61T.
