Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

Also, are there any screen with a colour gamut higher than 50% ? I wouldnt get the BOE model anyway! read back a page. Theres another user and myself that have p...

Re: W530 backlight fuse location -- front or back of board?

Did you ever find the cause of the fuse blowing?

Perhaps the backlight circuit is shorting to ground somewhere?

Re: Backlit vs non backlit keyboard, is there a tactile difference?

I've just come across this post and never thought there was a difference in feel. I have a W530 for which i purchased a new backlit keyboard for, i also have an X230 with a non backlit keyboard. I use both laptops pretty regularly and cannot remember thinking there was any real tactile difference. I...

W530 70++ Battery 42T4802 vs 0A36303

Can either the 42T4802 vs 0A36303 70++ battery be used in a W530 ?

One is 10.8v 7600mAh and the other is 11.1v and 8400mAh

Perhaps the 42T4802 is an improved version of the 0A36303 ?

Re: Upgrading X220/X230 to FHD 1080p

I am not complaining but I completed the Google order around six months ago but have not received an order number or an ETA.

Could i please have an update?

Apologies if i have not read the Google spreadsheet correctly.

LCD panel part number from WMI or other?

Is it possible to read the LCD panel part number from WMI or another utility, in Windows or Linux to determine the LCD panel part number in the machine?

Re: x220/x230 FHD/ WQHD 2K mSATA/USB3.0

Do either these Chinese boards or Nitrocaster's mod, allow Fn F8/F9 brightness control under Windows 7 or 10?

T530 series and above ??

Do all the T series laptops from the T530 to the T580 have removable batteries?

Do any of the T series from the t530 and above have a quad core processor, or do you have to have a P50 or P51 for still for that ?

T530 with T540, T550 innards?

I was wondering if it is possible to swap the case of T530 to a newer T540 or above, so the mousepad was back in the middle?

So the X220 keyboard was the greatest and sadly missed ?

Re: What is the 14 inch, and 15.x inch sibling of x230?

Was the X220's keyboard seen as better than the X230 then ? I though it all went downhill with the X240. The spec was ok but the clickpad was terrible and the keyboard was slightly worse then the X230's keyboard. Have the subsequent X250, X260 and X270 reverted to the X230 keyboard type ? @OP As men...

Re: x240 Docks / ultrabase

I am sorry to say our Lenovo account manager has reneged on his statement over Ultras bases and X240's

There will be no Ultrabase for the X240. The Thinkpad Pro Dock 65W with an external USB DVD drive option is the official solution.

What a poor backward step on Lenovo's part.

Re: x240 Docks / ultrabase

There will be an Ultrabase 3 docking station equivalent for the X240, like the one for the X230.

The docking connector will be slightly different because the laptop connectors have changed on the X240
