Re: Intel T9600

I upgraded from P8600 2.4 Ghz 3MB L2 to P9700 2.8 Ghz 6MB L2 in my T500. The most noticeable difference is more heat. I didn't notice a performance increase. In this day and age all Core 2 Duos are the same. By far 8GB of RAM and WUXGA have been the most meaningful upgrades to my T500. 8GB will be g...

Re: My ThinkPad T25 review

My problem with 16:9 is the loss of pixels. This is long no longer a problem with FHD being the default resolution on every modern Thinkpad of every product line, and QHD is also popular. I'd ditch my T500 for 2560x1440 in my T520.

Re: My ThinkPad T25 review

This is so true. non Thinkpad users just don't get it. They are spoiled by the 4K 16:9 displays and GTX 1070s and 1080s. They are dazzled by OLED screens and high ppi displays. Actually High DPI is what dazzled many customers into buying the 1600x1200 A series, R50p, T42p/T43p, and T60p; and the 19...

Re: Will 8GB Dolphin 1333MHz work for R500 2735W2D ?

Never heard of that brand but no reason why it shouldn't work. Lenovo used Hynix, Samsung, Crucial, Micron, Elpida, and Ramaxel RAM. Nanya is also a good brand used by OEMs. R500 can use PC3-8500s (1066), 10600s (1333), and 12800s (1600) 4GB sticks so long as they are 2rx8 or Dual Rank with 8 chips ...

Re: My ThinkPad T25 review

3:2 to 16:10 is not as dramatic a difference as 16:10 to 16:9. So it is barely an improvement, but an improvement over 16:9.

Making the plastic grille material thinner. But they did as well add some small intake vents below the fan too. So, what zoltan87 can do is: - get high-resolution images of the T61 bottom chassis and apply the changes (bigger vent holes, thinner grilles) on his T60, or - get a T61 bottom chassis an...

Funny the laptop doesn't like the two 4GBs together so there's something wrong with the laptops hardware or BIOS. Not sure if any SL510 has been tried with 8GB. Doe...

Do we know yet if the R25 has any special firmware preventing the transplantation of a T470 motherboard into it without functionality loss? Because that'd be a way to ditch the 940MX.
