SOLD! X230 wit FHD IPS and classic keyboard (EU)

Hi guys, I would like to sell my X230 i5 with 12.5" FHD screen and a classic keyboard. I had it as backup to other X230 I built with 13.3" screen, but it proved to be reliable and I never needed it. Laptop is in great condition, has a Nitrocaster FHD kit soldered and a 12.5" LG LP125WF4-SPB1 matte I...

Re: X62/X63 - will there be a new batch?

Also if someone is a Linux user and need more vertical place on screen I can honestly recommend using i3 window manager. With window title bars and gaps turned off you can really use 100% of your screen. All tasks are done with keyboard shorcuts so you can put your mouse in a drawer and turn off all...

How much shipped to United States 94043? If it's reasonable, I'd be interested. This is the "Daylight" LED kit, right?

Re: X62/X63 - will there be a new batch?

I have a 14 inch machine under 2 pounds and it is easy to set up a portrait window on it. Not perfect, but very acceptable. Of course, everyone has different requirements and will buy what suits their needs. For me, the 16:9 screen is suitable for watching movies and has nothing to do with producti...

Re: X62/X63 - will there be a new batch?

All computers I know of today are 16:9. I see many users (my clients) use full screen for everything and that misses the boat. It is easy to set up a portrait Window, code away , and have space left over. Well i just bought the new Matebook with 3:2 13" screen and for me it's quite close to 4:3 asp...

Re: X62/X63 - will there be a new batch?

Thanks! Unfortunately I think this might be the end of my Thinkpad jurney :) I don't want to pay 1200$ for a X210 which I don't really like (with it's big ugly screen bezels), also couldn't find X62 mb for less than 900$ (which is crazy for a 5th gen cpu). Also the contact with 51nb was very hard fo...

Re: X62/X63 - will there be a new batch?

Hi!

That's really sad that 51nb dropped production of X61 motherboards.
I like X201, but for me it's nowhere near the X61 :)

Anyway, thanks for answering - I did send you a PM.

X62/X63 - will there be a new batch?

Hi!, Just sold my X230 and once again went back to X61. I love it's form factor, the 4:3 display, narrow LCD frame, notification leds, lack of touchpad etc :) Decided to keep it as my main laptop and buy sth modern to deal with tasks that need more computing power. But recently I started thinking th...

[SOLD] X230 i7 IPS changed into X220 (like new condition)

Hi all, I decided that I might sell one more of my ThinkPads - this time it's a X230. It is in perfect condition - looks like new, straight from shop, I didn't even take the foil from the lid yet :) It has a i7 3520M motherboard. I installed a new IPS panel (LP125WH2), new hinges, new battery (9-cel...

FS: X61s SXGA+

Hello, As I'm recently doing to many projects I'm considering selling one of my Thinkpads: Computer has a X61s motherboard for a lowest possible TDP (only 17W for C2D L7700 with default 1.8GHz), but it's in X61 case for better colling (has X61 cooler). It also has a 1400x1050 AFFS display with great...

Re: LED mod for HV121P01-101 (X61s)

Thanks for answering.
Maybe eventually I will be able to contact him somehow, I tried many mails and also PM here.
I can tell by the comments, that his 'daylight mode' would be exactly what I'm looking for my new sxga+ screen.

LED mod for HV121P01-101 (X61s)

Hello everyone! I'm a happy owner of the X61s laptop. I liked it so much, that I decided to give it a second life - changed all the parts that were used after so many years. It's so great to type on it! I'm working on Arch so old processor is not the biggest problem for me, unfortunately the screen ...
