WTB Feeler: W530 T530 FHD 1080p Models - Also, how to fine tune Ebay search for them?

#1 Post by crashnburn » Tue May 16, 2017 9:51 am

Currently searching Title & Description using:

thinkpad (w530,T530) (FHD,1080p) (-1600,-1366,-768,-HD,HD+)

To add and remove non FHD models. Is that negation syntax correct?
T61 8892-02U: 14.1"SXGA+/2.2C2D/4G/XP|Adv Mini Dock|30" Gateway XHD3000 WQXGA via Dual-link DVI
X61T 7767-96U: 12.1"SXGA+/1.6C2D/3G/Vista|Ultrabase
W510 4319-2PU: 15.6"FHD/i7-720QM/4G/Win7Pro64 (for dad)
T43 1875-DLU: 14.1"XGA/1.7PM-740/1G/XP (Old)

If I remember correctly, you don't need the hyphen on each search term in the excluding parenthesis except for the first one, so it'd look something like this,

(-1600,1366,768,HD,HD+)


It may work either way, but logically it appears like it may return a double negation and will include the terms you didn't want.

Your syntax needs to remove the commas and parentheses.

I would put: thinkpad w530 -something -something etc.
Then make a seperate one for t530.

Recommend putting both as email updates if they this searches how you want.

For example if i wanted to make a search for pre letter thinkpads i might make the following

Ibm thinkpad -lenovo -t -x -r -z -a -iseries -core -t41 -t42 -t43 -t40 -t60 -t61

Always put more than less, as i put t and t4x/6x because those are very common and often slip by the filter.
With great power comes great responsibility!

A lesson Lenovo has not cared to learn yet.

The command and parentheses allow me to use the OR and AND operators - if my memory serves me right?
I wanted to ensure filtering IN, FHD machines and filter OUR using a NEGATE/ NOT '-' operator the non FHD machines.

Yes, you are correct on that part. My only reservation would be the detail I mentioned above, and that might not even through an issue.
