Re: My ThinkPad X1 Extreme review

Wow, FINALLY a real world hands-on review of 15" X1 Extreme (circa 2018), many thanks! Thank you, I am glad that I was helpful. 1.

Re: ThinkPad X220 gaming benchmarks and graphics benchmarks

Neat. I have an HD 3000 T520 so this helps show me what that laptop is capable of. Seems to be on par, and in some cases better, than my T500 with Radeon 3650. Hello, I think then my blog post here will be very helpful to you, too. I benchmarked a T520 I owned, you can find it here: https://ikarios...

I feel it doesn't worth to upgrade to the M2000M card along with the E3-1505m/i7-6820HQ CPU... The base model seems fine in your demon :)
I think you are right, in the benchmarks I read somewhere the M2000M is about 25% - 30% faster than the M1000M, so not really a huge difference.

My switch from Windows 7 to Windows 10 - benchmarks

Hello, today I switched from Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit to Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit on my ThinkPad X230. I did some benchmarks to test if Windows 10 gives better performance for this device.
