'New' T540p

#1 Post by kc7gr » Thu Sep 15, 2022 12:59 pm

I realized, today, I've not logged in for several years.

Anyway... Got a 'new' laptop yesterday, a T540p. Fortunately, I was with a friend at the time who knew most of the 'gotchas' to avoid.

Prior to this, I was using a T500 which had replaced my (very!) aged T61. Impressions for the T540: I find I actually like the 'thunkpad,' and the numeric keypad. The screen looks amazing, even at 35% brightness, and Kubuntu runs great (I wasn't about to leave it bogged down with Windoze 10).

So, questions: Any other 'gotchas' I should be aware of?

Any case mods available? Rainbow IBM ThinkPad labels, for example?

Model code, if needed, is 20BE-004EUS.

Keep the peace(es).
