Re: [Idea] Intel NUC boards in Thinkpads?

Over at the /r/tp discord, there's apparently someone who's trying to come up with his own charging design based on a attiny85 https://hackaday.com/2020/09/02/building-an-open-source-thinkpad-battery Not sure if he's one of us. Still easier to just rip apart other laptops though. Dell Inspirons hav...

Re: [Idea] Intel NUC boards in Thinkpads?

I've actually been using a T420s that had a HP Probook 10510U+MX250 board inside for a while. As for the screen any 16:9 EDP screen will work fine using the HP screen cable. Ports are accessible through the CD-ROM port (empty now). Keyboard it used a daughterboard like the one in SK8855 and is wire...

Re: [Idea] Intel NUC boards in Thinkpads?

How did I not see this thread until now? I've been slowly working on a project called the 701R - it's a 701C with a custom motherboard and frame and an OEM keyboard. At the moment I'm using a GPD Pocket 1 motherboard, but other boards could be used as well. Still working on wiring up the keyboard. I...

Re: [FAQ] I have a(n) (insert model here), which forum board does it belong to?

Am I allowed to post here? I feel like some of the models should be moved around. Just my opinion. X230 is more similar to an X220 than an X240, for example. And the T14 is literally the same machine as a T490, they should be in the same forum. General ideas: -Move 30 series to 20 series forum. Thes...

Re: Malfunctioning W530. Directly to the trashcan?

What he said. Trashing such a machine is a huge waste. You could get a decent amount for it, especially if you parted it out and sold the dead board for parts (or just sold it whole).

It might have been clogged with dust, that would explain the heat and the puff of smoke. I've never seen a laptop release so much smoke that it was visible while assembled.
