Re: mSATA in X220/X230

All in perspective. A T500 or T530 is a lot lighter and easier to deal with than a full body armor with ESAPI plates, kevlar, M9, 50 rds of 9mmPara, M40 mask, etc. and all that other stuff I was carrying around in the 'stan... e.g. ONE ESAPI plate weighed as much as a T500. Ha, this is very true. I...

Re: X230T new battery

I don't recall, but I'll check and reply back. I'm sure I got lucky on getting a good battery after all this time.

Edit: unfortunately no, unless eBay is screwing up on me. I can't find the completed listing for the one I bought, so I'm questioning eBay.. :)

Re: mSATA in X220/X230

After a couple of big heavy laptops with 15.6" screens, I wanted something smaller. The X230T was really a bit on the small side, but I liked the specs and the idea of having a touch screen. That of course made it bulky for a sub 13" screen. Now the small screen isn't as friendly on my farsighted ey...

Re: mSATA in X220/X230

Thanks for the ideas.. BTW I didn't just hijack the thread intentionally, sorry about that. [emoji16] I had subscribed to it because I was looking into installing an mSATA drive, because we can't let that darn slot stay empty now can we??! [emoji1787] I got a freebie 128GB Samsung SSD and installed ...

Re: mSATA in X220/X230

Very much agreed. We have a client that installed some "cheap" TLC SSDs into older 1st gen i/C2D desktops some 3-4 years ago in order to extend their lifespan, and they are failing left and right all of a sudden with little/no warning lately. Thank goodness for folder redirection! :) I personally k...

X230T new battery

Finally decided I had to have a new battery for my X230 tablet, as the one that came with it was down to 30 minutes or so of battery life. I was surprised to find a decent number of batteries on eBay claiming to be new, a few open box, etc. I went with a new one, and it arrived in a sealed Lenovo bo...

Re: NEW LOOK TO THE OLD FORUM..

I was worried when I couldn't connect from my Forums app this morning. I had to update the bookmark because of the https change. I just got home from a trip today. I had to re-add this forum in the Forums app. I used https://forums.thinkpads.com to get it to work. I'm not sure if that was necessary...

Re: NEW LOOK TO THE OLD FORUM..

I love the new mobile scaling. It looks great. Haven't seen it on the ThinkPad yet though. Hey Grabber5.0! It's Shuswap from webOS Nation. I really need to consolidate my usernames at some point. [emoji14] Howdy! :) It was probably through you that I found out about this forum. Unrelated, I bought ...

Re: Answers to Questions About the phpBB 3.2 Style Update

We automagically forward requests from the http:// to https:// so that folks won't get lost, and everyone stays secure. I'm guessing your issue is with Tapatalk or some other app, and unfortunately I wasn't aware that there would be issues with that, and even now I don't know what I could do to all...

Re: NEW LOOK TO THE OLD FORUM..

I'm sure there were important reasons to upgrade the forum software and switch completely over to https for security reasons. Unfortunately, the old styles are not always compatible with the new versions of the software. I've had the same issues with my own forum. They're not decisions made lightly....
