S230U (Twist) - hard drive cover/door

#1 Post by mozartpc27 » Sat Feb 04, 2017 5:12 pm

Not sure to which of these forums this thread belongs, but the only mentions I found of the Twist on here fall under this forum or the X series forum, so here goes nothing...

I just recently reset my beloved Thinkpad Twist... seriously, LOVE the thing... but I've got a problem. I had to go away for work for a week, and I thought of something to try to get the Thinkpad going again at the last second before I left, so I grabbed it and brought it with me. Now, I'd already had the hard drive cover off, and I am 99.9% certain I left it here in the house... where my toddler lives. Suffice it to say, when I returned, I couldn't (and can't) find the [censored] thing anywhere. I see ONE guy selling them on ebay, but the seller wants $50 for it, PLUS $10 shipping for a one ounce part which strikes me as absurd:

Meanwhile I can get a whole set for the X-200 series for like $10 with free shipping, but it looks like the drive door piece - which is all I need - is in the close-but-not-quite category.

So my question is: does anyone know if there is another model's door I could look for that would fit? Or does someone have access to a dead Twist from which you'd be willing to part with the door? This little cosmetic blemish is admittedly driving me up the nearest wall.
