T60p wide (15.4)" Palmrest Dilemma

#1 Post by downlord » Tue Sep 09, 2014 1:39 pm

Hi everybody,
the palmrest of my faithful T60p widescreen didn't survive the last "accident" (a hard impact on the ground) so it's time to replace it.
(the thinkpad continued to work without a glitch 8) ).
According to the manual, the FRU is 42W2211 (or 42W2209 w/o fingerprint reader)
Seems hard to find.
Can anybody point me to the right direction getting one in EU (or china, or USA)?
Or is there an alternative (adapt the T61...)?

Thank you

If they don't ship to Portugal I would suggest a proxy with someone you know in the US. You won't really find anything cheaper than that.

The 15" T6x bezels are more sought after due to restorations and frankenpads.
2x T60p, 1x T61, loads of 701Cs, 1x WorkPad Z50, 2x TransNotes other random thinkpads...

Theokretes, thank you for the link.

we'll see.
