is it possible to make a thinkpad with intel nuc boards

hi there i used to like thinkpads, im currently using t420/x220 but after this series (with x230/t430 and later) thinkpads are not that good, x250 is just like any other notebook, with a silly keyboard and all this shiny stuff. i want to upgrade my t420 with new processor/ddr4 memory and want to kee...

Re: T420 ultrabay hdd without adapter

Ah, so it's a standard SATA (Slimline) after all. Good catch! :) Another question is how easy it is to align it for connection inside the Ultrabay and keep it there. Do let us know how this works for you. :thumbs-UP: i have an empty travel bezel from my old t61, i will try to put hdd and cable on i...

Re: T420 ultrabay hdd without adapter

I would also not dismiss the possibility that the SATA connector inside the T420 Ultrabay is a standard connector: http://www.allpinouts.org/index.php/Serial_ATA_%28SATA,_Serial_Advanced_Technology_Attachment A SATA Slimline (7+6) extension cable would probably do. Note that I'm assuming that since...

Re: T420 ultrabay hdd without adapter

The connector inside the Ultrabay is proprietary; it is not standard SATA. I am not sure they make direct converter cables between this connector and SATA, which are standard. Even if they do, I don't think it's a good idea to just have a wobbling exposed drive connected by cables. A non-original U...

Re: E420s WiFi to 5ghz upgrade.

if your current card is supporting N you can upgrade it to another N card. antenna connections will be same
and bluetooth / hspa is handled by different cards in your pc, switching to another wifi card wont make a difference to them

Drive exeeded 60 degrees celsius on idle. Which is way over the safe and normal 35-45 c range. what about performance ? compar...

These boards will handle a X9000 but not a Q9000 or the like. BIOS doesn't recognize a quad core and the machine won't boot with such a CPU.

No ifs, ands or buts. That's the way it is.
it was most probably x9000 sorry for the confusion. thanks for the information
