Re: T470s touch screen replacement

It might be the same screen as in the T25. Reviews about that touchscreen were not very positive though. For a better and brighter screen, get one without that touch-option, it's really a fingerprint-magnet. Ok, which panel would you recommend? Or how would I determine which panels are compatible?

Re: T470s touch screen replacement

Still looking for suggestions for a brighter replacement touch screen for my T470s. As mentioned it comes stock with a touch screen and I simply want to replace the existing panel with something brighter.

I'm not sure going to a touch screen will work because touch screens are thicker due to the glass used for the touch surface. ...
Thanks for your reply. The existing screen is already a touch screen. I am replacing it because of scratches and I want a brighter panel.

T470s touch screen replacement

I just purchased a T470s. The screen has an annoying blemish on it. So I would like to take the opportunity to upgrade to a brighter screen. I was inspired by this post: https://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=123783 https://www.reddit.com/r/thinkpad/comments/6bbbnc/t460s_screen_upgrade_to_t470s...

I'm a Windows person and I'm just curious, what do you Linux for, and is it Linux only?
I do all my work and all my personal computing with Linux and that's all I have used for around 10 years.

X220t ethernet connector acting up

I have a mint i7 X220 tablet that is in great condition. Everything works well except the built-in RJ45 Ethernet connector has recently become intermittent. Right now I am using a USB Ethernet adapter. What is involved in fixing the built-in RJ45 connector? Will this most likely involve replacing th...
