Re: A T420 with macOS High Sierra

I did a vanilla install, didn't use Multibeast/Unibeast at all. Does your T420 have the FHD mod?

A T420 with macOS High Sierra

Hi all, Got some pretty cool news. Found a ThinkPad T420 on eBay for $63 shipped. It is a complete rig, came with i5 2520M, 8GB RAM, 1600x900, 128GB Toshiba SSD, and 90W charger. Has HD3000 graphics. The issue was a corrupted Windows 7 install so looks like the guy didn't know how to fix or had time...

I forget how close it is to the original color but IIRC it was a pretty close match. Holds up quite well too.

Re: Another IBM NetVista sleeper

The sleeper term comes from the automotive community... eg. someone putting a V8 in a 90s Toyota Camry or something along those lines. Something that's not what you expect it at all.

Re: IBM/Lenovo ThinkCentre Ryzen 7 Sleeper Build

Theres also the NetVista and ThinkCentre desktops which are mATX but they're pretty small so cooling would be an issue on high TDP processors.

Thanks! Yeah, the IBM NetVista towers had that weird power supply next to the I/O shield so that would be a major limitation.

Re: IBM NetVista / Lenovo ThinkCentre sleeper build

A lot of new PC cases, even the higher end ones, still feel cheap to me. They don't seem like they're designed to last.

Yeah I used the latest BIOS for the M72e to change the BIOS logo.

Re: Anyone else ditching the Thinkpad?!

I've used a slew of ThinkPads from the 600E, 770, T2x, T4x, T6x, *00-*50 lines. As much as I liked the pre-*40 lines, the new ones don't do it for me. I got my mother a T450 a couple years ago. It's a nice machine, don't get me wrong... but I don't like the clickpad still. Even though it does have 3...

Re: modern laptops with "trackpoint"

You could put an i7 3630QM in the 8470p. I've had a few 8470ps, they're solid and have plenty of ports. A little thick, but good keyboard and SOLID input devices. Glass touchpad is very nice. The downside is you're limited to up to 1600x900 but it's better than the T420/T430 1600x900 screens. Don't ...
