And since you mentioned 12.3, there's a UXGA panel
available. That would be fantastic. It does have a touchscreen and probably need a mod to be used.
Oh, I see I somehow forgot to mention UXGA. This is exactly what I'm planning to do.
Although I don't need a touchscreen so I probably won't connect the touch sensor.
Although in retrospect somebody was likely crazy enough to suggest it anyway. Always good to have enthusiasm though!
And since you told me to feel free with the questions..
1. How active is the german forum?
2. Any fun mods for X61/X20x/X30x/Frankenpads?
It's pretty active, my impression is that it is quite a bit more active than this forum. I think, German folks don't use reddit and lenovo's forums as much as English speakers.
Yes, there are some fun mods. Most of them are described here, too, but often you'll find additional info on the German forum. The quadcore T6x thread for example is quite extensive. Many modding threads are in part or fully driven by el-sahef, who e.g. put a second power plug and a regular X6x fan into his X6x Tablet and who I think was the first to bring an X62 Tablet to life.
Awesome offer as always but I would prefer to avoid the ME backdoor. Also, since I'm not using my thinkpads for now I don't think investing the money is worth it.
Anything bad about the X62 though?
It's not as perfect as you would expect from Lenovo (let alone IBM), but properly set up, it works really well. Cool, quiet, powerful, small and light.
Sometimes coming over from the German forum...
X62s 3rd batch, T61 14" 4:3 (soon to be T70)
