Re: T420 Upgrade Options for CPU/Memory

So did some math what do you guys think ? worth going through the upgrade on a T420 ? it already has an SSD installed so i am skipping that .. but the rest comes to CPU : i7-3720QM 152+28(shipping) = 180$ RAM : (16GB) 125+15(shipping) = 140$ SOIC CLIP = 4$ CABLES Jumper = 3$ RASPBERRY = 81$ 408$ NZD...

Re: What is a good Linux OS for legacy thinkpads?

Try ubuntu with openbox .. i use it on a few thinkpads
works great
infact there is a quite less known spin , which makes it work like crunchbang
google gobang
once installed , do release upgrade to 16.04 ( latest LTS )
