Ready to buy an x260.. questions

#1 Post by Whitieiii » Tue Aug 27, 2019 4:02 pm

Looking at the specs for the x260 and it only has one ram slot? Also if i deside to go with the i3-6006u/i3-6100u over the i5-6200U would I be looking at the best battery life since it has no turbo boost? Im definitely going with the 3cell + 6cell 72wh battery.. another thing I'm wanting to know is if you can tell what display your going to get when ordering off of ebay or is it just hit and miss? I'd love to have the 1920x1080 display but don't feel like paying for a replacement if it's the 1366x768 display... I'm gonna buy an x260 now since they are getting to be adorable now and I don't need anything really powerful for just web browsing and such... I've got an iPad now and don't really like it but one reason I'm going with an x260 over the x250 is the em7455 wwan card won't work in the x250 without heavy modifications.. the wwan card is important to me because I am always on the go and without real internet options at home i have to rely on 4G LTE in my home for faster internet speeds... The platform specs are great but doesn't tell what options go with what options...

Get the PSREF with most Models: http://psref.lenovo.com/Product/ThinkPad_X260
Pick the models you like, then check with sellers which MTM is in the BIOS or on the sticker under the external battery.
BUT: none of the i3 models come standard with 1920x1080, they are all 1366x768.
Lovely day for a Guinness! (the Real Black Stuff). And pigs CAN fly!

True.. i might just buy a cheap one with a broken display or one with a broken main board then retrofit it... I've done multiple board swaps before...
