!!SOLD!! EU X230 7 row FHD "X225f"

#1 Post by digmorepaka » Sun Aug 02, 2020 3:54 pm

SOLD

Hello, selling this ThinkPad X230 build here are the details:

This chassis started life off as an X220, I fitted an X230 motherboard inside.
The difference being from a regular X230:

-the DP port has a slight gap
-non functional bluetooth LED
-a tab under the front usb3 port has been ground down(part that was never molded into the X230 bottom) to fit the port perfectly
-caps lock led doesn't work

details about the refit can be found here in Warhawk's blog post: http://panacek.net/post/frankenpad_x225/


The good:
FHD IPS display Nitrocaster kit
7-row NMB keyboard german layout, it has some shine(see image), If the shine bothers you i can replace it with a new old stock ALPS german keyboard for 20 eur extra
3320M
2x4GB of dualrank 1333 mhz ram
Palmrest/corners not cracked
Palmrest wrapped in very sweat resistant carbon fiber-like textured wrap
Unlocked IFD meaning you can mess with the firmware without an SPI flasher, machine comes with coreboot, FHD patch, and me_cleaner, of course you can revert it to stock without taking it apart or request me to revert it before sending it off witn no additional charge
~54Whr recelled 6cell battery, cells are around 72Whr but the controller is not built for them.
7260AC wifi
Drive cover, drive rails included, (no drive sled but you can use a piece of tape/string for the pullout)
EC flashed for non-DRM'd batteries and 7row keyboard

The bad:
Slight chip in the bezel(see pictures)
No ssd
No charger, i can include a 90W OEM brick for 15 eur

The ugly:
As is with most recelled batteries, it is not pretty. The battery is held in by the original latches perfectly and doesn't compromise on functionality.
DP port hole
Dead bluetooth indicator(X220 X230 refit issue)
Caps lock led(7 row refit issue)
Lid stickers(see picture) I can remove them upon request and no additional charge

Price: 250 euro+optional inclusions listed above+shipping

I take PayPal, and SEPA


SOLD

...not a buyer, but an X220/230 owner: so no matter what you do, CapsLock LED stops working after a classic keyboard mod on X230?

Yes, without hacking in some sort of a microcontroller/reprogramming a GPIO the led will not work. The LED on the keyboard is not killed, just not controlled as the chiclet did not have one.
