FS: ThinkPade E420s i3 4GB

I'm selling an E420s in good condition with normal wear. It boots up and seems to work fine but I have not done extensive testing. Does not include HDD or OS but comes with AC adapter.

Re: W520/W530 1080P FHD Screen Quality?

W520 FHD easily beats the X220 IPS with its shameful 60-70% sRGB by boasting 95% AdobeRGB, good contrast and good viewing angles.

Re: WTB T61 with 4:3 screen

Shipping would be the other problem. I think I might be better off just waiting for a local offer, especially since I already have my own QDI that's waiting to be installed. I'm in no hurry. Thanks anyway though.

Re: WTB T61 with 4:3 screen

I already have a mint T61 for my collection. Although I'm looking for a good condition, I think it would be a shame to use your nice immaculate T61. I don't mind scuffs and scratches as the machine will be used and receive wear anyway, so might as well start with something that's already been used.

Re: WTB T61 with 4:3 screen

Basically, what I need is a full standard T61 4:3 in good condition. I don't need the following but I'll take it if its a mostly stock/untouched T61.

-AC adapter
-CPU
-HDD
-Keyboard
-LCD panel

FT: X220t (i7) for a T420 or W520

Done. I have a X220t in a very nice condition, but it turns out that I don't need the pen at the moment and I'd rather have a machine with a DVD drive. So I want to trade my X220t for a T420 or W520. They don't have to be perfect, but the condition should still be good. The X220t has the following s...

The SXGA+ FlexView has somewhat decent color reproduction as it covers sRGB, but George does have a point. sRGB should be the absolute minimum for anything, including content consumption. Any kind of serious productivity work requires something more along the lines of Adobe RGB, which the HP Dreamc...

Re: Who Would Make and sell me a 600x Frankenpad???

The only thing it lacks is resolution, I will admit that. And I don't think there is any rework possibilities. With screen of that size you simply are limitted to XGA.

Re: Who Would Make and sell me a 600x Frankenpad???

The T60 and T61 and even the T5xx all use very similar motherboards to swapping is a breeze. The problem with the 600X is that it has no counterpart board. Your max specs are: 850Mhz CPU 576MB RAM 13.3" XGA LCD etc. So, you can still put a nice mobo. Check out el-sahef's 600X with an i3. What your ...

Someone could try to install the SL3...

Re: T410 Days are far from over.

For what it's worth, I used to have a T410 as well for a while. The best 1440x900 screen you can get is actually the AUO display. It has the highest contrast and the best viewing angles of the lot and the calibration isn't too far off either. This is the display I installed: http://www.panelook.com/...
