WTB x230 and x60s

My W520 has finaly become too heavy to travel with in my opinion, I am in the market for a x230 with an IPS display, and a 9cell battery as a replacement. Other specifications not too important, ISO keyboard preferred, but easily swappable, hard drive not required. I will be in the US for the next 2...

Re: Is Lenovo W520 quadcore with 2960xm cpu still Better than the top W530 and most of The newer laptops of today?

I purchased a used quadcore W520 about 3 years ago now, and couldn't be happier. I am a moderate user, I like to run Virtualbox to test linux distros, and have no less than 40 tabs open in Chromium at any given moment. The 16Gb of RAM certainly help, but the advantages of a newer processor would com...

Re: Pico PSU with IBM plug

I was looking at the pico-PSU-120WI-25V As for threading, the power recepticle on most TP's (the ones I have worked on) are just a square that fits into the TP casing. What I am looking for is one that has the outside of the plug threaded, so the receptacle can be placed through a hole in the casing...

I'm posting this as a general hardware question, if it doesn't belong here please feel free to move the thread. I'm planning on building a SFF ITX desktop with a PicoPSU. Most of the bricks used are HP/Dell/Generics/Etc... I was wondering if anyone here has ever hooked up an IBM brick to a picoPSU. ...

Re: Don't throw away your T4x, The new mobo is coming![Lots PIC]

I would definetly be in for one. Is there any provision to allow a "dumb" battery? so we can solder new cells into the casings without the controllers. Or build one into the mobo? We are building new mobos, and that's AWESOME!! But I think we need to look at betteries as well. Отправлено с моего SAM...

Re: Intel based Frankenpad suddenly dies

I just got it all apart. There was liquid damage everywhere. About a month ago, It got red bull spilled on it while it was closed. I wiped it off immediately, and didn't think anything of it, but it appears a fair amount seeped in through the display cable opening. It's pretty bad, I'm surprized it ...

x41 with T41 power brick

I just got a X41T, and was wondering if I could use my T41 power brick (FRU 02K6754). The X41T states that it needs 16volts 3,5amps and the power brick gives out 16volts at 4,5amps. Could anyone please confirm if this will work or not? Thank you.

I have a Frankenpad, 15" T60 wit T61 mobo, Intel graphics etc... Linux Mint 14. Whenever I insert a hard drive with a UltraBay adapter, It constantly spins the drive.
