Enable 2 finger scroll on old Synaptics touchpads.
I use a T43p SATAmod UXGA every day for code development and as a typewriter.
That is for the keyboards (the matching external one too)
and the 4:3 screen at 133DPI and a case with the great haptics. This is unsurpassed!
The old CPU of the T43p is telling you directly, if some program or application is bloated code.
Real number crunching is done on secondary machines.
The closest thing I got, is a rubberized Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming (aka early Alienware) with a matte 282DPI 16:9 screen.
But 16:9 with thick screen bezels is an abomination. No Trackstick. And the keyboard haptics are not as good.
Cheers from the land with the Explosive Trees,
Thinkpads with 15inch 4:3 UXGA 133DPI IPS/Flexview: 2x T43p SATA Mod., 3x T42p (dying by Flexing), 2x T60p (1xATI, 1xIntel/new BoeHydis);
R51 SXGA+; X31; X41T; X41 Sata Mod; all Made in China; 570E, 701C; MBP15c3UB non-glossy mid09 / formerly 600X, 760E
In my T43 I'm using a $12 IDE-> MSATA adapter (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B093DL2PWL/) (Note: had to trim part of the case for it to seat properly) and a $35 Transcend 128GB m.2 SSD. I just have the machine for XP use, so capacity isn't a concern.
Crystal Diskmark puts the drive at ~89 MB/s seq read and write and ~25MB rnd write, ~40 MB/s rnd read.
Curious what a true SATA conversion does?

Just bear in mind that it's SATA I but I got well over 100 with an old Intel X-25E.

One FlexView to rule them all:A31p
Abused daily: T520, X200s
PMs requesting personal tech support will be ignored.
Would be hard to get a perfect apples-apples comparison given the wide variety of SSD drives available.
Big thanks for everyone have collaborate at this thread !!
I read everything here about this mod in order to reborn my old T43 !
But I wonder something about wiring according SATA standard.
Marvell chip diagram says :
Pin 27 : RX +
Pin 28 : RX -
Pin 31 : TX -
Pin 32 : TX+
SATA standard says :
A+ : TX +
A- : TX -
B- : RX -
B+ : RX+
So by association, it give :
Pin 27 : B+
Pin 28 : B-
Pin 31 : A-
Pin 32 : A+
But it is opposite to what appears on this thread beginning :
http://forum.thinkpads.com/viewtopic.ph ... 07#p617507
Could everyone tell me if I wrong or not !?

27 RX_P = Receiver POS (your A+)
28 RX_M = Receiver NEG (your A-)
32 TX_P = Transmitter POS (your B+)
31 TX_M = Transmitter NEG (your B-)
Better believe me, I have only done this about 150 times...
