Re: Looking to replace 5:4 monitor, but with what?

MHL ports just mean that a small adapter can be used to stream HDMI over usb for phones. It work work normally with any HDMI cables. Just dont buy those HDMI cables that cost as much as the 27" eizo.

Re: T420s/430s FHD/2k upgrade

The problem is that the x2** series has a resonabpe bezel and small screens have little bezel. On the bigger t series, as the screens get larger so do the bezels. My t42 screen has atleast 3/4" total but my x series has less than 1/4".

RBS might need to sell his car for those. You could get some 2560x2048 color medical monitors but you need to sell a mansion to afford those :-)

If that was the case minuswell just bring a external numpad or better yet, a ibm pc122 :-)) JK.

But on a serious note, the classic intergrated numpad is a joke.

Well my friend your only option is a 17" w70x machine if you want a numpad. Always could get a a31 with an ultrabay numpad but i dont think you want a pentium 4 :-). I do have one but it still is a trusty worker so I wont give that away. If you dont want a numpad, a t61p-t530 is a great range to loo...

Re: Memory upgrade to 6GB T410 won't boot

Not to mention that i recommend that ram is dualed up by capacity. Not a big deal if different sizes are used but i always recommend doing using 2 same sized sricks. Also allows it to be faster in dual channel mode.

Re: Which T60 should I chose?

What about a 755CD. Great for watching vhs tapes and has a 4:3 lcd! Jk but really for playback of movies, I'd recommend 16:9. IN ANY OTHER SITUATION, GO FRANEKNPAD but for movies, widescreen os the winner. Youtube sucks on a x61. Just get a T520. 15" 4:3 with movies is just a 10" 16:9 because of the...
