Re: (Wanted) 90w or 135w Slim Tip Charger

I have an extra 90w genuine ThinkPad charger.

I am looking to get $20+shipping for it. I can post it on ebay with the additional fees, or if you are ever in the DC area, we could meet.

Let me know if you're interested.

Re: Why is Win 10 not offered on early Yoga?

I manually installed Win10 on my first-gen TP Yoga. I haven't had any issues running it with Win10. It might be worth just going in and performing the upgrade manually - especially with the free Win10 upgrade ending in July.

Well, I traded the X40 and the T20 into Best Buy today. For each of them, I got a $25 gift card and a $75 coupon towards a new computer. The T20 was definitely in rough shape (battery lasted just a few min and the screen a dim-orange with flickering lines), but it was kind of a shame about the X40. ...

Re: 2 Mini PCI Wireless Cards, 1 PCI-e Wifi Card

I honestly have no idea.

This website implies that the first card might work with a Z-series, but I can't guarantee it.

It's not much of an investment to give it a try though.
