Re: Ultrabase 2nd Battery Charging Method?

Or does the Ultrabase charge both batteries at the same time (doubtful, but would be awesome). I understand this is an old question, but for anyone looking for some answers: Yes, they charge simultaneously. I assume it won't charge a battery w/o a laptop docked, right? Can anyone who is using this ...

WTB wifi antennas

Looking for wifi antennas for an X200 era wifi card (it doesn't have to be from an X200 of course)

Re: What's the lightest laptop that you travel with? [WARNING: 2 tiny pix]

Using a terminal based linux OS I need a physical keyboard so I cannot stand tablets/smartphones. So for travelling I am using a X201 with a X200s 1440x900 screen. Fits great on a plane's table and there is no issue about not having enough battery charge as most planes now offer an AC plug

Re: How to use 3G on X300 in Canada

It is most probable that the card will be locked to Vodafone UK, so you need to unlock it first if you wanted to use it abroad. But since the OS cannot see the card, make sure it is physically there first, then double check in the BIOS if it is enabled and then try installing drivers. For relevant t...

I'm glad if it gets any use, cause at the moment it's collecting dust (yes, it's from a 770Z). It's less than 500gr and I can fit it as a "large letter" so it's £5.15 for Norway with Royal Mail.
