Lemme just search the FRU on this thing...

Difference this thing has compared to the normal X300 unit is that it has a glossy bezel instead of the matte finish like on the lid/palmrest

Any W500 fags here? Any difference from the P8400 from the T9400?
Not sure if I want to spend the big bucks on a T9800 CPU...
Gonna toss a W500 mobo onto a 15" T60 flexview case, I think I'll just need a W700 LCD ribbon cable, as the W500 one does work for the screen but the cable is too short for the inverter. Too scared to solder the pins.

I read the hype on /g/ all the time and had bought myself a fucked up X61T two years ago, because I am somewhat of a drawfag and owned a sub $100 Wacom tablet for my desktop.

Bought it, got an amazon battery and digitizer.
Its seriously much better than I expected.

Just depends on what you want to do with your ThinkPad. If you don't have a laptop, I wager a T400 or a Dell E6400...

>> No.42047214

Worse keyboard (Less the chiclets, more the inferior layout)
Removing the dedicated buttons makes the clit mouse less pleasant to use
Removed the latch that keeps it firmly shut
Less upgradeable / modular

My workplace used to order thinkpads for people. Now we have changed standards, so when people come in with a nice thinkpad i tell them that this machine does not match the standard anymore, and is getting old.

The user then tells me to order a standard machine for him\her, give me the thinkpad to remove the harddrive for destruction and to throw the laptop away.

T400 when I first got it.

>> No.42054669

The one I had pictured had like nothing wrong with it other then the battery only charging to 80%
Which lasts 1:30 to 3 hours... I got lucky on a 1.8" SSD for $45

The X301 I had got was $118 with a best offer, but its rough around the edges and there seems to be some dirt in the display, the bezel is cracked in two area. I bought a CD drive for it and took the battery for my unit. I figure I could sell it for $200 or so. I hope.

Usually they are taken care of, but they are in the $250+, even up to $400.
I get turned off when I see the speaker guard dirty. Its a dog at processing tho... will get linux on it and see.

eBay they go for $120, maybe $150 if it has a gud battery.
But i figure it will be sold for $180 if they had bought it and was not a business machine.

>great keyboard, it's no Model M but for a laptop it's more than decent. The keys are nicely sized, all 7 rows, and have just the right amount of 'clickyness' without being too stiff or mushy.

Despite its limitations and age, it still feels like a top of the line machine (they cost around 3 grand when released iirc) and has a great 'feel' to it.

Any of you have much experience with ebay?

I ordered a new battery for my x61 T over 6 weeks ago and it still hasn't arrived. It was originally supposed to arrive after 3-4 weeks but when it didn't I contacted the seller and they said give it 4-5 weeks. Since it's now past their own ETA and it was my last chance to open a ticket in the ebay resolution centre I opened one.

The seller is offering to try resending a new one, should I go for it or is that some way of absolving themself of responsibility and now they can say they tried shipping two and it's not their fault I didn't get them?

I don't use ebay much and I'm not a clever man so I need to be careful not to get scammed.

>not ultrabay HDD

>get a dock for dual 2560x1440 monitors
Not that it's too much of a problem, but you would have to have one of them plugged into the DP port on the laptop since the dock only has 1 DisplayPort and 1 single-link DVI (which can't power that resolution).

Other than that, I use a T420 and have a dock and use it as a desktop replacement, works for me.

What kind of battery lives are you guys getting on your thinkpads? (Also please list if you have done anything to enhance the battery life, like installing laptop-mode-tools). I can get around 6-7 hours on my X60s with a 9-cell battery on the highest brightness setting, laptop-mode installed. It's pretty handy for schoolwork since I don't have to charge it until I get home.

>Any of you have much experience with ebay?

I've bought factory OEM parts off eBay before with no problems.

Just be mindful to not buy anything shipping from China and check sellers feedback ratings.

Really common sense steps anon, get it together.

T420 with 9-cell, Win7 and Lenovo Power Manager. CPU is under-volted, screen brightness is usually at 10/15, and it has an SSD.

I'm never gone 100% -> 0% battery, so I'm not entirely sure since the estimated hours left is really finicky because it uses such a narrow time range between its calculations. But I have confidence I could get 9 hours of pure 4chan browsing out of it.

It's hard to tell though, really depends what you're doing. Because if I'm outside in the sun, I'll have to up the brightness to 15, or if I don't need internet, I can turn the wireless off too. Or if the ultrabay HDD kicks on, that saps power too.

is the always-on USB port actually always on; including when the laptop isn't booted up?

It could use a bit of cleaning, specs and how much did you pay for it?

>> No.42080534

it was super filthy, still cleaning it. needs a new keyboard because the amount of dust in the hold thing was crazy.

t9500 2.53ghz
4gb ram (2x2gb)
320gb hdd
wsxga+ (1440x900 led backlight)
has ati 3470m (helps for some games)
9cell that holds a 73% charge
$104 on ebay and ~$15 shipping

got an ultrabay hdd adapter
250gb 840 evo
added a 4gb stick of ram
i get 3-~5hrs of batt life, cpu is undervolted some with throttle stop, i should probably disable the "turbo boost" since i can't enable it on both cores (some laptops can do it on both cores)

You should try taking out the keyboard and cleaning it with a vacuum cleaner handbrush, did amazingly for mine.
And that's a pretty good deal you got there, the screen part must have been quite a good surprise.

>> No.42080767

Just got a X200 on eBay for £104. Anyone know how hot they run? And what the stock battery is like?

>> No.42080800

yeah, all the ones with this screen res kept ending at ~$200
so i settled for a low res screen, plus was 4gb ram instead of 2gb like most.
and 320gb hdd instead of 80-160gb

but i can't get the dust out of the cracks in the trackpad.
and parts on the keys are kinda permanently dusty looking (tried vigorous rubbing with alcohol and it looks better than before but still meh)

also my usb3 pci card didn't get here today like it was supposed to

>> No.42080856

You're one lucky bastard.
Try a toothbrush with soap and scrub hard
For the trackpad give a go to toothpicks or a knife I'd say

>> No.42081001

some adds nobody looks at.
he only put that the battery holds a charge but for an unknown amount of time. so i guess that turned some bidders away. i was surprised my bid won.

also no go with the knife (maybe a razor's edge might work, otherwise it's fucked)

i got the modded bios with no whitelist so i might pick up a gobi 3000 to use this with tmobile (can add it to the line for free with 500mb highspeed, but i'll have to tape over pin 20. and yeah, i have the sim slot and antanae wires

>> No.42081123

Yeah a razor's edge or a compass' point
I wasn't aware of a whitelist free bios available for the t400 though

>> No.42081378

it supposedly works, i haven't tested it yet.
its based on the dec 2012 bios i believe (it's for 3.23 nd 3.24)
