New FRU/System service parts lookup system

#1 Post by smclt30p » Fri Jan 05, 2018 4:21 am

So the palmrest on my X220 cracked and I could not, for the love of god, navigate Lenovo's website to find a part number. It pee'd me of to such
an extent that I made this:

http://thinkpads.org/fru/

It features selective searches, multi-column search, body diagrams, part pictures, Google and eBay links and more stuff.
Hope you guys will enjoy that stuff! :)

That's an awesome resource. Thank you for doing it.

Is there any way to get the parts page to stay in the last position it was in before clicking on a photo, e-Bay link, etc.

After finishing the page where the link takes you, the parts list returns to the top of the page and you have to scroll down again and hope you can find where you were at.

This needs to be made either a sticky, or have a link at the top of the page like the MTM and HMM links.

All we need now is to get that Model-list sorted and more complete.

As an aside, and I don't want to be mean, but most people who work on a specific Thinkpad will already have the matching HMM and frubom/parts list.

A lot of people requested for that list to be sorted, so I sorted it. :)
Thanks for feedback!

Great job! Thanks for fixing the glitch.

So easy to find an FRU now.
