Your explanation for using all caps due to vision problems may be true when you are composing a message but it logically doesn't make any sense for reading everybody else's text since they are using the default, normal sized characters. If you truly need to have the type larger, I heartily suggest that you use your browser's Zoom option and/or the operating system Accessibility settings to enlarge EVERYTHING on the screen. You shouldn't expect everybody else here to conform to your situation. I myself, and I'm sure that many other people here, have to wear reading glasses when using the computer. It would be foolish for me to expect that everybody else increase the size of their text if I couldn't read it.

The T420 contains a socketed Sandy Bridge generation processor. Intel refers to the socket as PPGA988, while other sources refer to it as Socket G2 or rPGA988B.
Curiously, the subsequent Ivy Bridge laptop processors are also Socket G2, but the T420 cannot use them, because the its BIOS does not contain the microcode for the Ivy Bridge processors.
Therefore, if you want to ensure the success of your planned upgrade, limit your choices to CPUs that T420 actually came with:
- Intel® Core™ i3-2310M (2.1GHz)
- Intel® Core™ i5-2410M (2.3GHz)
- Intel® Core™ i5-2450M (2.5GHz) (Without vPro)
- Intel® Core™ i5-2520M (2.5GHz)
- Intel® Core™ i5-2540M (2.6GHz)
- Intel® Core™ i7-2620M (2.7GHz)
- Intel® Core™ i7-2640M (2.8GHz)
Backup: X601 Core 2 Duo T8100
Toy: X60F Core Solo U1300
On loan: X220 4291-P79 i5-2520M
In pieces: two retired but working X61Ts
RIP: 760XD 9546-U9E; X61 7676-A24; and a BOE-Hydis HV121P01-100 in failed SXGA+ mod
