Re: T61p with NVDIA Quadro FX 570M Graphics won't update to Windows 10 2004 Feature Update

The T61p boots faster. I thought it was my imagination, but the 2004 Feature update has made it boot faster IMHO. Also the Chief Architect Premiere X12 CAD program is only laggy when the cursor movement keys are used to move an object. When the object's handle is used, it is not laggy. Finally, the ...

Re: T61p with NVDIA Quadro FX 570M Graphics won't update to Windows 10 2004 Feature Update

It's a T61p 15.4" screen. And in fact it may be too laggy for you. I have learned to have lower standards as I have aged. The laptop functions fine for me, I am the limiting factor. Not the laptop. (In fact my daily driver is a X61 2.4GHz or 2.5GHz similarly maxed out.) But you are right, when I am ...
