Re: Possible to upgrade T430 to 1920×1080 screen, or other suggestions?

At what you're looking at, I would recommend the t450. The screen is so much better than the t430 and the keyboard maybe worse but i wouldn't sacrifice reliability to a mod. The lenovo outlet has plenty of great deals all the time. Just doing a quick outlet search gives me a 671$ t460s laptop with a...

What exactly was the R series trying fit?

According to Thinkwiki, the R-Series was meant to be a cheaper model, which does make sense for the E/I type R series, but otherwise they usually come with more features (Firewire, QXGA LCD on R50p, S-Video(I think), Etc..). It would seem like it would be the heavy desktop replacement machine like t...

If you have a 4 cell, I could model it but I don't have one and I don't want to destroy my good 8 cell.

IPS 10.4" LCD in Old Thinkpad???

I just saw these panels on eBay: NEC NL6448BC33-53. According to panelook.com they are 640x480 SA-SFT Normally Black (IPS Family) with a contrast ratio of 500:1 and 380 CD/m^2. If you're thinking what I'm thinking, IPS 701C/755CD/*insert 10.4" thinkpad*. I know, I'm out of my mind. :D If it wasn't 1...

You have to put the two pieces on the left together. Then put those pieces in the clips of the keyboard. Then push the keycap on. I have an x240 so i can make a video for you when i get home.

Re: WD Red for data drive in Thinkpad?

In this day of age, just get a high capacity ssd. There drop resistant, no need to worry about failing anytime soon and there cheap now. Maybe if it was a 10tb drive then possibly but a 1tb ssd cost next to nothing now.

Just sayin.

Re: Ultrabay battery prevents main battery from charging?

Simple, open battery, solder in switch, close and solved. Switch off to charge main battery. Only solution i know of. Sorry about that. Atleast its better than nothing. :-) Btw have you tried modifying the ec to accept any battery. I wonder if the ultrabay battery is screwing with the ec lockout chip?

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".
