Re: Thinkpad Logo

This is a pretty dumb question, and I guess it doesn't really matter, but do all of the new X61 computers that are being shipped from Lenovo.ca/com have the new Lenovo Thinkpad logo instead of the old IBM logo? I obviously prefer the older logo and I'm just wondering what to expect. Thanks! Not sur...

Well, that's an altogether different type of case. I guess the Booq cases are more ultrasleeves than major cases. They are sleek and formfitting, yet are rugged too. ( Ballistic nylon ) The OP mentioned it himself, so that kind of sleek case may be his preference, but that Pelican looks like it coul...

Re: Recommend me a non nonsense *beefy* case for my T61

T61 - 14.1 non widescreen. I just need a very durable case for it. It's for one of my project managers who rides in his truck all day and spends all of his day in the field. Doesn't have to be pretty----just durable and is nicely padded. Any recommendations fellas. I came across this Booqbag Vyper ...

I have a new T61p from dec 07 with the latest bios, vista home premium. After several rounds of inf hacks, registry changes, driver uninstall/reinstallations, i have had no luck enabling stereo mix. The inf changes didnt seem to stick in the registry, they would reset upon reboot. when i changed th...

So, was that was the reason it was pulled from the T61 (others?) series configurators? By the time mine was ordered, it was no longer an option, and my heart was set on it compared to Intel due to the Atheros' better performance. (Didn't know about BT interference) Is there a new Atheros N card for ...

Well, no, it doesn't bother me. You're the one that declared that IBM always made it pure black. I just showed you that that was not true. And on the fabled 600X, no less. Well, I never actually used the word pure ... The Lenovo logo on the lid is small and discreet. Many of the pictures that I've ...

One good turn...

I love ThinkPads too. Too much, probably. I mean if the quality were to drop, their appearance would still tempt me when making a purchase. They're like the stealth fighters among laptops. :) I love my T61p too :D Although I don't like how the screen is off-center and the buttons for the trackpoint ...

Notebook Hardware Control. There's a thread about it here:

http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.php?t=28482

It would seem to do the same job and more, if it can be configured properly. (I don't know how to do it on a T61 w/Vista though)

I disagree. I think there's something wrong here. When I updated it on my T61 from the preinstalled version, I swear some of the functionality disappeared. Also, when that install happened, I repeatedly got an error message saying something like "streammci.dll not found" and only after pressing OK 5...

but IBM has always put black before branding. Sleek and black like a stealth aircraft was always the way they went, and what I have come to expect. I beg to differ. The lid to my 600X. That still bugs you? The palmrest branding made it to the cover a while ago. You must be more of a purist than I. ...

Considering the kind of work you do and the equipment needed, I wouldn't think an ultralight would be necessary. A T or R series seems more appropriate for that. Just my two cents. With WWAN, GPS, WiMax and UWB built-in, what would you need it for ? Right, Memory Card reader, but you're as well off ...

It beats the MacBook Air (no replaceable battery or ethernet?), but that goes without saying. The X300 does suffer problems that I wouldn't think would be allowed, though... No dock connection? That's a critical error in my opinion. For a series of business laptops, this being even more for the trav...

In terms of cooling pad, it's a pretty cheap pad. I wouldn't suggest getting it. It's just plastic with two fans that blow. It's quiet, but I don't think it will do you any good. One of my roommates has one and just uses it just cause he has it. I ordered the Antec Notebook Cooler and I think it wi...
