Shipping Laptop Overseas

I have a laptop that I wish to ship to Spain. I have tried pricing the shipping by way of USPS and come up with about $75 for an 11 pound package. UPS and FedEx are both around $255-275. Is that right? Are there any other ways I could price this out with lower shipping?

Change Ownership of x230

I have an x230 that is to be delivered tomorrow and I have already sold it. I would like to put the laptop in the new owners name. Is this possible without calling lenovo?

Installing a micro SSD on Y580

I just bought a Lenovo Y580 and from what I have heard the hard drive stinks. My plan is to get a MSSD and install the OS on it and keep the 750GB drive for data etc. Any ideas what drive i should get and how I go about installing?

FS: T-42 with flexview

I have decided that I wish to part with my beloved T42 with Flexview (SXGA + IPS, 64MB ATI Radeon 9600 series graphics). It is a Pentium M 1.8 GHz with 1.5 GB ram and a new 100 GB Seagate HD, Intel Wireless. This has been in storage and it is time to make room so it must go. When last used the 9 cel...

Re: Is this a good deal for T520?

Thanks but I priced the E530 and it was more than the t520 and I can not get the 1600 x 900 screen. If I remember right the t520 has a display port so I can still watch movies. I have never seen a E530 but it may be a step in the wrong direction for me. Looks like a basic machine.

Re: Installing a SSD in X220

Since I do not have the Crucial drive installed at his point, I don't know if I need more storage. In the future if I do I guess I could add the mSATA but at this point I need to figure out how to get the OS onto the new drive.

Installing a SSD in X220

I purchased a X220 in April 2011. I love it but wanted more speed so purchased a Crucial M4 SSD (128 gb). I hope I did the right thing because I have read conflicting reports that I should have just bought a mSATA and use the drive that shipped as a data disk. Is this true? Also how do i install the...
