Re: T60 fan ia quiet

Lol this is a new one , as the fan on the T60 series is consider rather loud because the T60 series tends to overheat and therefore the fan is blowing constantly. Thats the case with mine atleast ... Compared to my T42 which is always silent as an rock.

Re: SSD for T60

Any 2.5" SATA SSD will work on the T60 but it will only run in SATA 150 mode so a maximum read/write spd you can get is 150 mb/s . There is also a nice Corsair P64 SSD with good speed to prize ratio. So to be future proof it is good to buy these faster drives. Still it should be a great improvement ...

Re: My 7th thinkpad and... NOISE!

Just to remind everybody the biggest noise source in any laptop after fan noise , is for sure
hard disk noise it is high pitched and totally dominates any other noise source (fan aside).
so if possible have all noise reduction features of your HD active, or use an SSD which is almost soundless.

Re: Overheating - is my T60 defective? (Pic)

My experience and from what I have read here on the forum and from other sources the cooling system on the T60 series is very bad designed. I have never seen any T60 machine with temps that get near the levels of the T4x series , even an T42p (2.13 GHz) is in the range of cirka 40-45° C CPU temp. I ...

Re: x300 Trackpoint Toxic? my Daughter ate it this morning *PIC*

My best advice concerning Thinkpads and children is they dont mix that well, I have two kids and they are not allowed to touch my Thinkpads. One soda spill over my T43 taught me this lesson. Off course the T43 was fine after the spill but the keyboard was very sticky after the incident. But after I ...

Re: Intel T7300 on a T60

Ok see your point now, not very easy to change the FSB cause the Bios doesnt support changes to the chipset. Worth checking though,
have to wait until a used T7200 pops up.

Nice pictures , I have always been more for the 14" models lighter and more compact. But I agree the IPS monitor is so nice ... And the 4:3 format I find is much better for work than
the 16:9 format.

Re: Which T60 fits me

Congrats on your T60p... Only think is it has problems with the cooling mechanism.. I have a T60 it is the same here
it gets way hotter and louder than my loyal T42 (which is the best designed Thinkpad ever IMHO).

But it can be modded to work fine...
