Re: T470s screen in T460s

WTB: very used x220t / x220 tablet

I've seen them on ebay with gouges, scratches, and other superficial damage and am wondering if anyone here has something like that for around $400-450.

Thanks.

Re: thermal pad replacement for x61s

Is there any consensus on whether the pads are required? I generally have heard that pads are ALWAYS inferior to paste, but it sounds like there may be a big space issue if removed e.g. when laptop is upside down or sideways. I'm thinking of applying Arctic Silver to my heatsink but I'm unclear on w...

ThinkVantage System Update hack to get it working?

The install on my x61 tablet is working perfectly but it was a pain in the butt downloading all of the updates, and I'm wondering if Lenovo will even update them to Win8. Is there any known hack for getting system update to think you're running Windows 7? I've searched but haven't found anything. I'...

WTB: Thinkpad 90w AC adapter

40Y630 40Y7659 40Y7660 40Y7661 40Y7662 40Y7663

They are $20 new shipped on ebay but I'd be interested in taking it off someone's hands if they have a good working one laying around. Say 14 shipped? Thanks for any offers.

x220 Waterhouse skin (a sick sort of blasphemy on my part)

These were 15 dollars from a Fathead sale recently. I found the absolute blacks in the trees and background so they would mesh better with the matte black of the chassis. Absolutely worth it in my opinion.

Re: [WTB] Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300 60Y3233

Read here: http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=99259 The parts are interchangable :) Thanks, that's a helpful thread. I've tried to search extensively, and this Lenovo community thread disagrees with that thread: http://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-Edge/Edge-13-Replace-WiFi-Card/td-p/3...

Earlier Lenovo-brand X-series wireless card FRUs in X220?

Hey, I just purchased my x220i and screwed up my wireless card choice (thinkpad generic). It seems that the Intel 6300 FRU is 60Y3233, whileas there are Lenovo-branded, non-ES cards on ebay with different FRUs, some for the X201 or U-series. The price difference is over 20 dollars. Is it possible to...
