Re: Feeler: Value of a genuine AUO B156HW01 V.4

Listed on eBay for ~$60+ so $60 is probably your best bet. Um, sure about that? I've seen "compatible" units for that much, but never a genuine one. I've sold mine $85 within a day, and I consider that super-cheap. I thought I saw a few listed on eBay with specific pictures at that price, but it se...

Dear sir, could you possibly also use this opportunity to share some precious knowledge about X6* family.. This X62 mobo - where did it come from? Is it one of 51nb exploits? Why such a strange name on the CPU? BTW I initially read the message as if it was a 3rd gen Intel CPU (i5-3xxx) but it's pro...

T480 can be found for $500 if you search well. i5 CPU, 8-16GB RAM, 1080p display (upgrade if necessary), and an ssd. It has a quad-core CPU. Avoid older models like the T470 due to the dual core.

It'll be better for sure. Increased speed depends on your BIOS though. Personally I'd recommend an AX200 in an adapter, or modifying the chinese mPCIe version to have both antennas connected.

Fair enough. Failing this you could probably find a T8300 X61 and overclock it using that pin mod.
