FOUND X60s recovery media XPP

Ran the warranty check on the machine and *yippee* still has 1 month of factory warranty, so will contact IBM/Lenovo. I am in the process of buying an x60s minus the HDD and so will need the recovery media. Anyone have a set that they no longer need? The FRU part number is 43T7044 (replaces 42J7117)...

I have a 2nd gen Apple studio LCD that I bought new eons ago for around $900, IIRC, and certainly used for whatever rated hours it was; most recently with my X31 when docked and last week the display went 'black' on me. It fails to display when connected directly to another machine, fails to hard re...

Re: FREE for cost of shipping DEAD T60 battery

Just as an FYI, it looks like the cheapest shipping will be Priority Mail® Small Flat-Rate Box at around $5 given the weight and thickness... the battery and padding/wrap make it too thick to be called an 'envelope' by USPS and other ground shipping is nearly double that.

Re: Comments from users; Flexview IPS screen on a T6x vs T4x???

Well, seems to me that the newer T6x machines are more current and have greater expandability (SATA HD drives, more RAM, faster processor etc) and that the older T4x 'may' have a bit sturdier build quality. From my standpoint, I'd also prefer a newer machine so as to avoid the 2010 error with a new ...

Got the Transcend 32GB SSD from newegg

It is all that it was made out to be; marked improvement in XPP powerup time and load times, quiet and (hopefully) more reliable and less heat than a conventional HDD. Gets my vote for a great X31 upgrade for all of $93!
Thanks to everyone for their feedback.
