Re: x61s L7500 overclock by installing dell 1705 wifi card

Bought the dell wifi card, but none of my ram chips can be read by spdtool or rw. I suppose they are locked.
Any Idea where I can find unlocked chips of 533 and 800 ram?

grey x61 keyboard, what is it?

Hi,
got my hands on an x60/61 keyboard with greyish key caps (all keys). Is it something special? Never seen one like this before.
tactile feedback is a bit more springy, but don't know if its the intention or the fact that the kb is in good shape.
Any ideas?

Re: X230 6-cell battery re-celling considerations, 30+ and 44+ battery info [includes pictures]

I had an interesting experience recelling my x61 battery. It turns out that the BMS from cheap Chinese batteries doesn't care about removal and change of cells. And also it easily adjusts to higher capacity cells. The bodies of these batteries are much weaker and get fully destroyed when trying to o...

I have done some research, and my overall impression is that it is doable. Here few points on the challenge...

DEX dock from an old Thinkpad

Few days ago I tried connecting my Huawei mate 10 pro to a screen via type-c to hdmi adapter. I was surprised how cool was the desktop experience. It really acts as a desktop, quite similar to cromeOS. The phone becomes a touchpad and you can add a keyboard through BT or if you have a type-c dock th...

thanks for your input On a different note, is it my aging eyes or is that screen glossy ? yes it is glossy. See if installing Middleton's BIOS helps.

LF: DDR2 ram 2x4GB 667 or 800 MHZ

Hi,

need to buy 8gb ram for a t61 (2x4gb).
I see a lot of those for about $75 (with free shipping) on ebay.

So was wondering if someone could offer a better price (shipped to Switzerland).

800HMZ is prefered, but will consider also 667MHZ.
