Re: Thinking about buying a T42

How about Windows 2000? I have a T42 with XP on it, but I never really used XP before, so it holds no nostalgia for me, and maybe Windows 2000 would make me use it more.

Re: Time for a "what distro are you running" thread...

I use Debian on all my machines. Mostly, I use 2 SSD's, one with Intel and AMD graphics drivers and one with Nvidia drivers, and then I just swap them around to whichever ThinkPad I feel like using.

For desktop environment, I use XFCE.

Re: W530 with touchscreen and keyboard from W510?

Thanks a lot. I'll stick with my W510, then. It has the best screen of any laptop I've ever owned. IPS or not :D

W530 with touchscreen and keyboard from W510?

Hi. I have a W510 with IPS touchscreen. I also have a deal on my hand, for a W530 with TN panel. The W510 screen is better, and I like the W510 keyboard a lot more than I'm probably going to like the W530 one. So, can I move the screen and keyboard from a W510 to a W530? Does the W530 have connector...

Re: What computer have you had for the longest? When did you get it?

Sadly, I haven's saved any of my really old machines. I do have a Commodore 64 and a Amiga 500 and such, but not the original ones. The machine in my collection, I have had for the longest has to be my Sun SparcStation 20. Found it on a flea market in the late 90's, and besides being a neat collecti...

Re: X200 Ultrabase and non-original bays

I don't believe that I've ever seen a non-factory Ultrabase for any of the X series machines. Do you have a link / photo to your unit? I think he's saying the optical drive/caddy is non-Lenovo, not the Ultrabase itself. Hi, I would like to know if I can hook a HDD caddy or DVDSLIM into the Ultrabas...

Re: W510 trackpad acting up after removing dimples

Today, something really interesting happened. I've had the computer in the dock for the last week or so, and the problem completely vanished.By accident, I connected my x220 to the un-original 125 watt power supply my w510 came with (brought it used) and the trackpad on the x220 immediately started ...

W510 trackpad acting up after removing dimples

I have a W510, where most of the rubber dimples on the trackpad where worn off, and I decided to rub of the rest of them off. But since then, the trackpad has been acting weird from time to time. Most of the time, it works perfectly fine, but sometimes it stops registering touches, or only respond i...
