Re: when will my 410 be obsolete and useless?

My T410i which is a lower screen resolution i5 version of the T410 still flies with linux mint.
I guess it will even work fine with windows 10.
If I had to buy a replacement it would be a T420 for the reasons already mentioned by others.

Re: Problem with audio through HDMI connected to minidock.

Its a long time since the last update.
I didn't find a solution besides what I have written before but HDMI is now properly supported trough linux mint kernel 4.15.0-65 and 4.15.0-66.
So in case you need try these.

Re: Problem with audio through HDMI connected to minidock.

Yes it has to be a problem between mint and the T-420. I tried all the available drivers for the NVIDIA card but no go.
Also switched graphic cards in the bios.
I was just hoping somebody else solved this already.

There was once an update from vista to 7 possible for some...
