Re: Upgrade Thinkpad x200

Hello, I have a Thinkpad x200 with 148Gb Hard Drive and 5GB RAM. I would like to upgrade it to 8GB RAM and 1TB SSD or HDD.

Re: Thoughts on convertible laptops ?

Re: Thinklight on the Lenovo K21

Touchpad buttons with stripes? Think I've seen that on my 240 and a few of my older IBM-1990-era Thinkpads. The ThinkPad 240 doesn't have a touchpad, nor do any of the other 1990s ThinkPads. The first ThinkPad with a touchpad was the ThinkPad T30. Sorry I was only thinking about the buttons. You ar...

I mean 2700 RMB is 421 USD. That's quite near what I want to sell my X250 FHD IPS.

From what I can gather, its a budget-line meant for Chinese business customers.

Okay! If the 240 goes I will pay for the 365XD or 535/535X
It has gone, and there is interest in the 535/535X already, so I'll list you as (first person interested) in the 365XD.
I'll get it weighed again and send you the estimate for Sea Shipping, SAL, and EMS shipping.

Interested in the 240, still available? Technically, it is in a grey area. I have received interest, but no payment. If the first person falls through, I'll be sure to get the computer to you. N.B. Most all the software and the 365XD are still available for sure. The parts are also likely available.

I have this matte IPS display (and I think it has LED mod) available on a P8600 base X200. I have a spare no. 47 battery.

I can send it with a P8700 base as well, it would be a nominal add-on cost (mostly in shipping).
