Re: Thinkpad X1 Yoga - Pen and Multi-Touch Interaction?

Since there is no way to see the X1 Yoga in person and try it out before buying I'm a bit concerned about how it handles the usage of active pen in combination with touchscreen functions. Does it block out any touch input while the stylus in near the display surface? This would be less than desirab...

Re: Monitor Seemingly Randomly Going Black for a Second or Two

I had a similar problem with a new monitor and called the monitor's tech support. The answer they gave me was "that behavior usually means the cable." After using three different cables with no change, I changed the DP to HDMI adapter that I was using to to connect the monitor; and the problem went...

Re: ThinkPad P50 Intermittent Keyboard Issues

That's is unfortunate. Let us know if you still have similar problems after the board is replaced. I suspect this is more like a software problem.

Re: Thinkpad for computer science major

I have read Thinkpad Yoga works well with Ubuntu. Anyway, I don't know if you have purchased or not. There was a discount going on last week. But, if not, I would recommend T460p for its powerful settings and upgradeability for your future CS journey. The x series are also good if you find a good pr...

Re: Lenovo trackpad stopped working

My first feeling is this may be related to your connection, but there may also be a problem with the trackpad itself (damaged?). Either way, let's eliminate the possibility of software problems. Could you check if the trackpad is listed in your device management? In the Device Management interface o...

Re: Just freshly installed Windows 10 on P50. What to do with the previous disk?

Another option to format the disk is to boot off of a linux live distro and simply run gparted (gui) or fdisk (cmd) on the appropriate drive. You avoid the hassle of having to put the HDD in a usb enclosure. Finally, I have installed the Ubuntu 16.04 on the SSD (haven't figured out how to make the ...

Re: What do you use the P50/70 ExpressCard slot for?

The major point of having PCCard or ExpressCard slots is not what you can do with them now but what you will be able to do when new devices appear that did not exist when your laptop was designed (e.g. USB 3.0 for older laptops or USB 2.0 for even older ones). With high-speed external buses like US...

I haven't figured out how to use a second monitor on Ubuntu 16.04. I have tried installing nvidia 361, 358 and 364 drivers. But none of them can let the computer recognize a second monitor after reboot. I was planning to install Bumblebee as well later, and hopefully something like http://www.unixre...

So, I got a chance to do a fresh installation of Windows 10 on a new SSD to my Thinkpad P50 machine. I put the previous 500GB HDD as a second disk for storage in parallel with the newly installed 480GB SSD. The new Windows 10 boots normally and can still recognizes the HDD as partition C which has W...

Re: P50 hard disk drive cable

I think the price difference comes from how many they sell -- the more the cheaper due to manufacture factor--not the performance. Can you give us the real price when you ordered? I may need the left slot one later. Thanks!

Hi there, I noticed that P50 can support a wacom AES pen.

My hope is that Wacom will work out a universal rechargable AES pen ...
