Re: t420: best TN display

There is a better TN display available for the T420. It has better viewing angles and black levels. I installed it on a T420s many years ago, but unfortunately I don't remember the panel name. Maybe someone can chime in who can remember. Either way, I would just go with one of the modern IPS solutio...

Re: Is the forum dying?

Once I move into the retirement stage of my life I plan on picking up a couple of older ThinkPads and creating a small display corner in the living room of my apartment overseas. Transnote and 770Z would probably be at the top of the list, maybe a couple more...but that's just a random thought from...

Re: Is the forum dying?

Same here, last good ThinkPad was the P50 and that was 6 years ago now. Even that came after years of a dry spell. There were times like the P50 where it seemed like things might get better but after all these years and false hopes, the well is dry. It's over now. But it was a good run.

Furthermore, left-wing bias is pretty much being embedded into heads of the students nowadays and has been for decades, so a lot of people are not necessarily aware of their own bias.
As a recent journalism grad I can confirm this.

Re: OK, now we descend into the STOLEN election

It wasn't "conservatives" who elected Trump. There's not enough of them in this country to begin with. Try "forgotten men and women" instead - whatever you may think of that phrase - and you might get somewhere. Reminds me of this book we read back in one of my undergad classes: https://www.amazon....

Re: A31p - a decade later (LONG)

My A31p is definitely a hangar queen. It still had the clear sticker cover on the keyboard when I bought it, but I did use it for a brief period (a month or two) as a retro gaming device. It has provided the best NFS IV experience I've ever had. It also worked well as a machine for background music....

Re: LF: 65W power adapter

Thanks for the offer Dave, surprised no one else has a left over adapter. Usually people have piles of these. Guess those days are over. I'll give it a few more days to see if something shows up a little closer, otherwise I'll take up your offer.

Looks like the T440p buyer isn't interested so I guess if someone else wants the defective T440p, it's available. More importantly though, I'm still looking for a T60/X300.

Re: Cause of red/reddish W520 screen

The FHD W520 screen does not use white LEDs, but instead uses a R + GB backlighting system to achieve superior color gamut. In fact, it covers 95% AdobeRGB. That's perfect for print, but UI elements and pretty much all digital content is designed for sRGB, not AdobeRGB. That's why some colors may be...

WTT T440p i7 w/ NVIDIA GT730m + Dock FOR X201/X220 or similar

I initially bought the T440p as a "do everything" machine that would have plenty of performance while remaining somewhat portable. I recently bought a gaming laptop though since I want to get back into gaming, so I don't need the "do it all" part anymore. The performance needs are covered by my gam...
