If there is no thinklight, does that mean that Lenovo made a backlit classic keyboard?

Re: Thinkpadders Rejoice (*LARGE PICS*)

I'm guessing the only thing "retro" about this project will be the keyboard. All the other will be poopoo Ah, but you forget the multi-color logo! In all seriousness, I will continue to keep an eye on the retro, but my mind has shifted to wanting a x62 with an m2 slot, daylight kit and latest gen c...

Broken scroll button - replace?

The scroll button on my X230 keyboard got ripped off, is it possible to buy a new one and replace it yourself or is a new keyboard my best option? Right now I scroll by holding the small green rubber thingy that sits beneath where the button is supposed to be, so nothing apart from the button is bro...

Thoroughly clean a Thinkpad (T60)

So I finally found a T60 with flexview (1400x1050) and Swedish keyboard in good condition for a decent price (600kr~$60). Fully functional and as stated in good condition, but time has made it dirty. Crumbles and dust in every cavity if you look close enough. The plan is to maybe get a T70 motherboa...

Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

As long as it's for the 14" widescreen T61, I'll throw my money at this. There are no T60 14" widescreen ever built. But left hand port configuration is very strange. More close to 14", 15" 4:3. 14" wide screens have audio sockets on the bottom. I haven't noticed socket for right usb ports subcard....

SOLVED: Upgrading keyboard to backlit, X230?

Just a quick question: I have a SWE X230 with a non-backlit keyboard that my toddler destroyed the trackpoint buttons on. Can I just order a backlit version and install it and the backlight will work? Aside from ebay, where could I find a SWE keyboard for a decent price?

Thanks!

All of a sudden WiFi is not working on my X230 win 10. When I try to turn it on the lever instantly goes to off position. WiFi does work on my phone etc. Any thoughts?

I don't see why there shouldn't be another batch, even into next year, seeing as this sells out quite well. Moreover, some people here believe in mythical T70 (which would be a similar remake of T60/1) and would actually make for a real retro. You might be right about more batches, but a pessimisti...
