Re: CLiPtec USB 3.0 PCMCIA EXPRESS Card RZP460

Two days isn't much time to give for an answer, you know. ;)

I'd say you're best bet is finding it on sites like newegg or amazon, and look at reviews there. Otherwise googling the device name/model along with "review" might find another forum with such a post.

Re: Looking for an XD card (have one propping up a table?)

Thanks. :) There's a lot of counterfeit flash media on eBay, so I tend to avoid it for that (especially the China-based sellers). I'm more trusting of the provenance given by members here, anyhow. Also, I should probably say that shipping from Sweden would probably cost more than one of these is wor...

Re: Express Card SSD in x61s ????

Firstly, this isn't a EC SSD. It's an SDXC (Camera memory) card in a EC adapter sold as a two-pack. It's not even Transcend for both, but Transcend and Sandisk, so it's a third party, maybe the website, doing the bundling. You can get the SDXC card for less, and most certainly the SDXC-compatible Ex...

Re: Rubber Feet Damaging Wood Surfaces

I've experienced this, but not with a laptop (not my T61, for sure). Does it get worse when the laptop runs hot, or is it the same all the time? If the latter, and if you decide on keeping the TP, I'd actually remove all of the feet and buy aftermarket feet for it (placed unobtrusively to any dock)....

Looking for an XD card (have one propping up a table?)

Yeah, I know it's a format so dead that dollar stores think twice about stocking them now, but I have a relative with an old Olympus who's in need. 2GB would be ideal, but I'll entertain any PM's.

Thanks in advance. :)

Re: Newest Thinkpads with Retractable Feet

I've seen them on eBay, but they were originally a RadioShack exclusive (Gigaware is a house brand). You may want to scribble down the sku number in that picture (upper right corner) and stop by a store to ask them if they have it, or what other local RS stores do.

Good luck.

Ever heard of double-sided sticky tape? Or use Elmer's Rubber Cement. I use that to put the screw covers back on the TPs.

Nah. The adhesive on these things tends to dry out from the ends, so even if I were willing to cut (!) the plate I had, it would pop off sooner than the rest of that T60 one. ;)

I'm not set against eBay, despite most reasonably-priced RAM not being new (can't tell if overclocked) and without manufacturer warranties (lots of OEM pulls), but I wouldn't buy generic ram like that with just a warranty from the seller.

The biggest thing I miss is the tilt-up keyboard of the 76x series. I still wish that were a feature on current models.
