SimpleTap 3.2?

When looking thro software for the x220 I came across a youtube video showing simpletap, and while I know it's been discontinued by lenovo, it looks like it might add some interesting features for a multitouch tablet like the x220t and x230t, is the reason for them dropping support due to windows 8 ...

x220t Touch Screen Protectors?

Does anyone know of a place to get good, possibly tempered glass screen protectors for the x220t multitouch screens? The only seller I see for a x220t screen protector is Photodon on amazon and reviews mention it's slightly smaller than the active area and you lose some touch sensitivity, and they'r...

Re: Modded Bios and Processor Fast Strings.

Nah, I'll keep the mod, I can keep my fingers off the advanced settings :lol: I'm just curious as to what they all do, but I'm not gonna experiment, and I like my whitelistings, and I'm sure someone will figure out all the settings out in time.

Re: Modded Bios and Processor Fast Strings.

I've bricked plenty of machines while playing around with bios. It's not a myth and it's a terrible feeling when you first realize you've bricked a machine and . Have since unbricked all of them using 'flashrom' and a raspberry pi model B. I have the McDonnell BIOS on my x220! Let me boot it up and...

So why do you think the write speeds on the internal x220 SD port are slower than the external ones?

Re: Transcend Express Card Reader for SD/SDHC/SDXC/UHS-1 (TS-RDF1) ?

Whoops, I meant to say write speeds were slower than the external readers, I have a x220t btw, still be kinda nice to find that transcend reader, it sits flush and so do the SD cards, a rare find apparently, and will still be useful as SDXC is planned to support 2TB capacities eventually.

The reader is connected to PCIe bus, and can achieve UHS-1 speeds.

I know the x220's are SDXC capable, but I don't think they can achieve UHS-1 speeds since the reader is connected to the USB 2.0 bus?

Re: Large storage capacity on the go, or reasons why I would NEED a SSD..

I have a slice battery for my T420/W520. I don't use it often, but it has come in handy a few times. It really adds to the bulk of the machine; with an X220 the extra bulk would be even more apparent because of the smaller size and lighter weight overall of the machine vs. the larger 14 and 15" T/W...
