Re: Thinkpad / Device for College

While I love the Thinkpads I grew up with (that keyboard!), I think I need something with a newer-gen processor/RAM/SSD/etc. So I don't get part way through college and have to find something new. I'd adore something like my T60 with Kaby Lake - that screen and keyboard and build were simply perfec...

Re: What to do if Computrace is activated in your TP BIOS

Thy may have wanted to make sure the wi-fi connection was not dropped in the middle of the operation. Maybe there is a risk of bricking the machine if that should happen. I'll hook up an ethernet connection when I get home later tonight and see if those CompuTrace processes start to show up. I disa...

Re: WTB: X201 lower chassis with main board

I'm seeking to repair/replace an X201s which was water damaged. The display and keyboard are probably OK, don't need those. I prefer to use a 201 not 200 lower section, as the series is already old. If you ever change your mind, please contact me. I've been wondering what to do with an old X200 bas...

Good to see you around again. Sadly, I have sold my computer since that time so you will need to find someone else with a T61p motherboard or complete unit.
I know, thank you for your help.

The first ThinkPad with a touchpad was the ThinkPad T30. Sorry I was only thinking about the buttons. You ar...

Did a Check on HK Caurosell, seems that there are quite a few Thinkpads on sale in the HK area. Too bad they are still annoyingly overpriced. 2700 for a X220 i5 whattt
I mean 2700 RMB is 421 USD. That's quite near what I want to sell my X250 FHD IPS.

Interested in the 240, still available? Technically, it is in a grey area. I have received interest, but no payment. If the first person falls through, I'll be sure to get the computer to you. N.B. Most all the software and the 365XD are still available for sure. The parts are also likely available.

Re: LF: AFFS display for X201 or a complete unit w/AFFS

I have this matte IPS display (and I think it has LED mod) available on a P8600 base X200. I have a spare no. 47 battery.

I can send it with a P8700 base as well, it would be a nominal add-on cost (mostly in shipping).
