Re: New Lenovo Tablets (Android, W7)

Why would you want that? It's not like Windows on ARM would run any of the existing Windows applications... I think there will be a little more productivity in windows 8 for ARM. I couldn't imagine anything else, than microsoft will port Office to ARM. And i dont like Android.. Im more for windows ...

Re: New Lenovo Tablets (Android, W7)

I hope it will have support for windows 8 ARM.. And i hope it will be up to the "Thinkpad" standard - and not just another consumer tablet!!

Re: Thinkpad W500 warranty

Its very hard to see, but the Heat sink, behind the grill is damaged.. Not much, but a little.
I noticed my fan began to run a little faster, but i thought it was dust, but nothing extraordinary. So i will just let it be.

Thinkpad W500 warranty

Hi! I have a thinkpad w500, and i have a problem - but i dont know how much it will cost to repair? The problem is that my heat sink, has taken a little damage because my thinkpad was knocked off a table and down on the floor. Nothing else has been damaged, and this is the first time i recognize it....

Re: How do i use th gps in Thinkpad w500?

Hi!
I have the same problem on my W500.. A half year ago, when i used vista, the GPS could find my position, but in windows 7 it just "search" forever.
I know i have the GPS and it works, because it did under Vista :?
