Can't wait to get it home!
ThinkPads are addictive
Don't forget to buy AC adapter (charger), as the webpage as per your URL link clearly stated "Does not come with charger" when we saw it today.
Current Thinkpads: X1E1 | X1C4 | X1C3 | X250 | X230 | T410
Retired Thinkpads: T42 | 560 (circa 1996)
~~IBM Thinkpad era computer bag !
I already have a few 170w, and 150w chargers, so it's not a problem!
Anyone who has wanted a W540, should jump on this! They apparently have several.
This one has the factory clickpad.... Guess what? I like it better than the T450 pad that's in my first W540. I don't ever use the trackpoint, so the shortcomings with that, and the clickpad, are a non-issue.
BOTH of these machines have:
1tb Samsung 860 EVO for the C: drive
500gb Samsung 860 EVO for the D: drive. EDIT:: Both now have 1tb Samsung 860 Evo drives, for the D: drive.
SuperBoot2 M.2 for the E: drive. (one is 240gb, the other is 480gb).
Both have PCI Express, 2xUSB 3.0 ports
Both have nVidia K2100m graphics
Both have 32gb Corsair Vengeance, PC3-14900 1866 SODIMMS
The only significant differences are:
The first W540 has a 1080p display, the new one has the 3k display. There is ZERO eye strain with the 3k display. No matter how long I'm on it.
The first W540 has an i7-4800mq CPU, the new one has the i7-4900 CPU.... And yes, there is a noticeable difference in speed, when ran side-by-side.
My new W540 is faster. The display is better, and I actually LIKE the clickpad, as I've learned how to use it.
The i7-4900 seems to run a little cooler than the i7-4800, even after re-pasting the XX-4800.
The new W540, just runs smoother, snappier than the first one. I'm pleased as punch with the i7-4900mq for sure, and will continue to use it as my "DD". Not sure what I want to do with the first one. Maybe keep it as a backup, or sell it. Not sure yet. Had I'da known how much better the XX-4900 ran, I would've just upgraded the processor in the first one.... Well, Then I wouldn't have TWO then, would I?
