WTB - T60 fan or T61 heatsink (For T60 w/ATI) CAN/US

Upfront: Shipping would be to CANADA if at all possible. I have a US address if necessary but won't be there for a while and shipping to Canada should be reasonable anyways. Hi all, The fan died on a trusty T60 14" (i.e. 4:3) with discrete graphics that still sees regular use. It's running great wit...

Thinkpad as external keyboard (bluetooth, USB, not Synergy)

Hi there, As per my marketplace posting, I'm trying to purchase a USB Thinkpad/Ultranav keyboard. I've had wrist pain using the stock keyboard and mouse with my Thinkcentre at work, and for many tasks would just like to be able to use the trackpoint. I purchased a logitech track pad which works well...

WTB - Ultranav USB Keyboard; 2x 20v PS; T60 & T400 Batt.

Hi there, Looking for an ultranav keyboard, preferably with number pad. I have a shipping address in the US but if shipping to Canada is possible that would be preferred. To make shipping worthwhile, there are a couple other things I could use if you happen to have them: I also need a couple power s...

WTB - NMB Keyboard for T60/T500 etc (Regular US layout)

Looking to replace the keyboard in my T500. Non flexy t60 version preferred (39T0958 I think), regular wear is not a problem. I can receive packages in the US and Canada, though a buyer willing to ship to Canada via USPS would be preferred.

Re: Win 8 & X61t - Hotkeys (bluetooth) & tablet button issues

I am wondering if Win 8 would provide a better or atleast equal to experience as Win 7.. esp on X61T. PS: What kind of Win 8 license did you procure? Or is it enabled via SLIC/ OEM? I did the upgrade ($40 with the download - some more adventurous people report exercising a loophole for recently pur...

That worked to launch the program. Sadly it showed no bluetooth radio. I will do more looking into it but thank you for the suggestion!

Win 8 & X61t - Hotkeys (bluetooth) & tablet button issues

I've updated an x61t to Windows 8 x64. Overall the process was a bit of a pain, but if any one has any questions I'm happy to further explain some of the steps I had to go through (getting x64, changing from AHCI to compatibility and then back without BSOD with a new SSD, etc). Doing the same instal...
