Hi there,

Thought I'd post here, and see if there is anyone with spare or unwanted 2503 dock to hand. Not sure if this was every manufactured with alternate P/N or FRUs.

In part, I'd like to try and preserve the condition of my very tidy T601F.

UK based (Peak District).

Thanks everyone :thumbs-UP:

Hi berrieds,
congrats on your T601F - I have been very envious of that setup but have baulked at such a machine because I understood it to be *incompatible* with my 2503-Advanced dock - where my T60, T61 and W500 happily reside (in turns). I think you would be looking for a mini-dock, instead? Long may your T601F reign, btw

And why should the T601F be "incompatible"?
That's a T60 shell with T61 innards, both of which fit perfectly on a 2503...

oooh now you have me drooling for a T601F, RBS - I thought I remember reading somewhere on the forums that someone was having problems with a FrankenPad + Advanced Dock - but in hindsight it was probably the T70, the T60 modification from 51nb. Thanks for pointing out my error :)

Well, a T70 (as all 51nb modifications) have no problems with traditional Thinkpad docks. They simply do not support them (as there is no docking connector). :)
