So, if I have a basic x61 with a LTN121XJ-L07 screen, this motherboard is a drop in replacement??

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. R I wish more motherboards had internal USB. On a particular ultrabook, I ripped out the keyboard and replaced it ...

Re: X62 problems, quirks, and fixes

Hi folks! I'm asking for assistance. I'm trying to install a WLAN and a WWAN card into X62. So the idea is to have them both. However the WLAN card is not working in the upper slot and the WWAN card is also not working in that slot. They are working in the bottom slot though... So.. Any idea? it se...

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.

I think you need a special cable. I recall seeing someone showing the custom cable that comes with the SXGA+ units shipped from 51nb.

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

So, is it possible to pre-order an x62 or not? depending on the numbers of replies here, availability of i7 5557U and my time/money really. I guess I should probably just order 4 or 5 of i7 5557U and sell those.... The RMA rate for X62 is not low, ~10%, and I recently have a faulty mobo (though it'...

Perhaps that bundle is being replaced with another? I notice the reason why it is so expensive here is the supply of them is low. Only available from two major retailers, and "out of stock" everywhere else.

Lucky, I don't need more RAM urgently. If I see it at the right price, I'll pick it up.
