Re: WTB: Cheap Intel graphics (low-end) T60/61 or T43

Definitely intel graphics T43/T60/T61 are the most reliable in terms of detaching chip issue. Just returned a T61p with a nVidia GPU to Lenovo service for MB replacement.

I would stick to larger brands such as Transcend, Sandisk, Samsung, etc.

Re: T40 SXGA LCD failure

My trusty old T43p UXGA now needs a new CCF. It was turning on red for the longest time. Now it just goes blank while in the middle of something. I ordered new CCF from Moniserv in San Francisco. I hope these newer CCF last longer.

Thanks in advance!
Performance of 32GB and 64GB versions hould be about the same.

Re: X40 motherboard replacement

The X41t motherboard will work in non-tablet X40/X41 but indicators on the display will not work properly.

Re: IBM ThinkPad X41 Tablet VS Apple iPad

The ipad is not pressure sensitive but the X41t is. If you bear down on the stylus, the dot become bigger. ipad is a consumer appliance but the X41t (and other Thinkpad tablets) is a professional tool.

Re: Replace T42p with T61p or something else? display question

I made this series of upgrades A22p, A30p, A31p, T42p (UXGA), T43p (UXGA), T60p (UXGA) and really don't know what to do next. We do have one T61p 15.4in but it cannot compare to IPS/AFFS screens. On top of that, an out of warranty T61 with nVidia GPU failed. Fortunately Lenovo replaced it as "engine...

Yes, these in my list all use ZIF connectors and require an adapter. Only the original 20/30/40/60GB Hitachi drives use pin connectors.
