Other business laptops are also welcome in /tpg/ (e.g. Dell Latitude/Precision, HP EliteBook/ZBook).
If you're looking for purchase advice, READ THE BUYERS GUIDE FIRST. Then post, stating budget and requirements (e.g. size and performance).
Don't buy anything OTHER THAN T, X AND W/P SERIES if you want the Real ThinkPad Experience™
T420 - 14", normal size - makes you look autistic
X220 - 12.5", lightweight - shit resolution
Why ThinkPad? (also applies to other business laptops)
>They’re really cheap when you buy a used one.
>Keyboards feel excellent while typing (no, not the old ones).
>Great durability thanks to the inclusion of rollcages and use of glass fiber reinforced plastic for the chassis. The keyboard is splash proof and spilled liquids will drain out.
>Utilitarian design - e.g. indicator LEDs, 7 row keyboard layout on older models.
>Docking solutions that easily turns your laptop into a desktop.
>Easy to repair, upgrade and maintain thanks to readily available service manuals for almost every model. Spare parts are easy and cheap to obtain.

My x200s is becoming a pain to use (absolutely shit ccfl screen, weak battery, 2 out of 3 usbs not working, cracks on the body, 2gb ram - can be upgraded but not sure if to invest in it now) and I have two options:
a) Local guy is selling x200s with better CPU than i have (1.86 > 1.6 GHz), 2gb ram, good battery and and broken screen for about 30$ (please note this is in Europe so everythings more expensive). I could scavange it, buy affs, put my old screen in it and sell it for some bucks. I just love x200s.
b) I could invest about 500€ to get something more recent. But newer x2** are heavier, have 16:9 and honestly, if i invested that much, i want something fancy. X1 is cool but could afford only 1st gen which has shit screen.
I usually just type, browse interents etc on linux with awesome, so weak CPU shouldnt matter much, should it?
Still not satisfied with the responses in the previous thread of what makes Thinkpad more worth it than e.g. a Viao, Samsung, or even HP.
I've tried the red clitoris and I can see how it's helpful, and I'd admit I am a fan of non-chiclet keyboards. I guess I can see that they're sturdy and stable, too. But choosing a Thinkpad over anything else seems like preference, as in "well I like ugly laptops" rather than something based in reason, like they objectively have better specs.
Option A, I pretty much did that,
>old busted x61
>bought a x200s with cracked screen
>bought an affs panel
>sold x61 that almost covered the cost of the x200s
X200s is comfy is fuck and i love it.
Welcome to ThinkCucks' reasoning behind buying a shit tier laptop
Ok, let me autism this out for you: if you don't get why you should get one, then you should not get one. The thing with those ones is, they're pretty much more durable than anything else while providing some pro-features that others don't: docking stations, safe closing mechanisms, super-duper giant ass batteries (x220 with slice+9cell works 17 hours straight), and god almighty, those ports: x220 can handle an msata ssd, a regular 2,5 sata hdd, some 3g on express card or a god damn EGPU on that.
Another x200s would hold you over for another year or two. Upgrade the ram though. In a year, the x220 will be dirt cheap and still very usable. Upgrade then. They're already around 120 burgers, so it just depends on your budget.
Go full 420, if possible. I've got so much autism that I checked the benchmarks for pretty much any new thinpad aviable, and anything besides t420 is not worth your fucks given. t430 and newer got CPUs on pretty much the same level, and they go to shit with those brown casings. t400 is also a bit too slow nowadays, so anon, you're blessed by all the fucks I give to get t420.
The negative reviews I read said they have short battery life and are missing a few ports (like HDMI).
As for other stuff like i7 core that's in no way exclusive to the ThinkPad. Might as well get something else with that.
This just seems like one of those threads where everyone's bragging about their dumbfuck mac.
I am interested in playing around with Linux though, how much better is the "support" from a ThinkPad?
I might pick up a cheap or old one. But the $1000 ones, those I don't understand I guess.
>I've got so much autism that I checked the benchmarks for pretty much any new thinpad aviable
I'm gonna trust your word because if I had more free time I would do exactly the same.
working on getting thinkfan configured on my x220 with linux mint. so far i have it installed and runnig at start up but It is not enabled. can anyone help me out?
>5. Enable fan control with these two >commands:

not sure what that means
This is the best ThinkPad ever. Prove me wrong:

The HDMI is lacking on older machines, that's because the pro-pc users need more VGA for powerpoint presentations, and displayports for goddamn good monitors. HDMI is for the media consuming pleb, but hey, if you need it-there's a passthorugh for that. And yes, Thinkpads are better with linux, as every autistic fuck out there (like me here) uses one while not eating out his feet like Richard Stallman. And BTW, those $1000 thinkpads aren't worth getting, everything newer beyond t420 and x220 is a fuckin waste of money, as they don't have faster internal cpus.
first of all, he said the keyboard was exchangable.
second of all, fuck off. the 6 row layout omits the keys you never use while retaining the ones you do in more meaningful positions. SysRq is where the useless fucking menu key used to be and pageup/down are where the SCROLLING KEYS (!) used to be, for gods sake, what's not to like?
>agree that the old keys had slightly better tactile response
After the T61 the quality of keyboards certainly declined, but the T440p keyboard is as solid as the one in the T6x series.
print screen == SysRq. it's where the menu key used to be.
if you're telling you are seriously making constant use of context menus, i recommend you look into learning a few keyboard shortcuts instead.
(disclaimer: i have no idea how useful that key might be in windows.)
>pageup/down are where the SCROLLING KEYS (!) used to be
Scrolling keys? You mean the back and forward keys? I was pleasantly surprised how neat they are and use them all the time.
I'll take Thinklight over a backlit keyboard any day. They'll never not look gaudy to me, and the backlight is only useful for seeing the keys. The Thinklight on my X220 is so bright that it illuminates the area around the laptop in addition to the keyboard.
I gotta do a shitload of work on everyday on windows, cause Unity3D got no worthwhile support on Linux, and I gotta use that. There's a literally shitload of cases where you're stuck with context menus and cannot be the Stevie Wonder of keyboard shortcuts.
wanted to get t440 of any kind, but that touchpad is scaring the pants out of me.
as i said, if that is the case, so be it. i'm just a user on windows and i find the lack of functionality of many tools frustrating - if that were my own time and not the companies, i would be really pissed off.
(company has me working some smaller tasks on windows, most on unixoid)
> lost a bid on the x220 tablet i7 version for 200$
It had everything and only a little dent. I am pissed anons , feels bad man, very bad
Looking at most thinkpads that are 1080p and that can support streaming, but mostly non-intensive school work
Is there anything I should be worried about in the later models of thinkpads? I remember there being quite an uproar a few years ago about it.
Thirding the other anons to keep the ol girl running. Upgrade later when you actually need it for performance reasons. Don't get your hopes up for resale value.
So Debian decided to not support the graphics card for the T23 I use as a backup of the backup laptop.
Any distro worth trying on such a device, or shall I head back to previous Debian versions?
BIOS options picture so you know it's not locked
Does oldstable (Wheezy) not even support it? I don't think they've technically stopped releasing security updates for it yet, but it'll happen in a few months.
>be x201 locked BIOS fag
>package gets stolen by nigger in Chicago
Why is my life such shot? I live in NY God damn it. "Out for Delievery" my ass.
>disassemble per HMM
>remove old board, install new board
>repaste CPU/GPU and install nvidia model heatsink
Not hard, just time consuming. One of those things that will take you 3 hours to do the first time, but you could do a second one in 1/4 the time. If you do it, don't torque the shit out of the screws.
I wouldn't bother from a cost/benefit standpoint though unless you're just really marginal on graphics performance and don't mind the heat/shorter batt life.
It's the US Postal Service. They're late every once in a while. Granted, it's been happening less ever since they went from dead trees to hyper-excited electrons buzzing around silicon wafers, but when they're late, they're fucking late
>Fucking Moto /g/ taking a whole extra week from estimated delivery date cause they forgot the fucking package at the facilities on 3 occasions.
I would personally say it's only better for gayman. And it's marginal.
It's about equal to an nvidia 425M specs wise. 425M was still better
Not that anon, just have a T420 with the dGPU
Ok, so I have a weird issue with my T420's touchpad. Occasionally it craps out. For a while I would just have to wait until it unlocked to move again, but I noticed that somethings registering a control input that I have to press to unlock the mouse. Any idea what the fuck is happening? If I use a regular mouse I do not have these issues.
Did you even read the OP?

I've always been a USPS shill because priority shipping is so fast. But apparent the Chicago metro hub is notorious. Then I went on their facebook page that has 1/5 stars and see countless pics of dindus at work. I am not even a pol fag but I can't stand niggers.
I'd insta-fire that nigress for using Facebook at work. No fucking way is that OK. If you're "working hard" you're not on social media
>I'm a security guard, so don't have to bust dick
Anyways, your package is probably flipping end over end on a conveyor belt somewhere and the filthy coons are ignoring it cause "it ain't my job"
>I'd insta-fire that nigress for using Facebook at work.
I mean fuck bitches but I highly doubt you never take momentary breaks on your phone or computer. Hell, most people used to use the shitter for a break.
UPS has always been the best to me, never had any problems and usually got shit from them earlier than expected. USPS is okay, like you said their priority shipping is great but their standard can be slow sometimes. Fedex went full fucking retard with my T420, leaving it one state away for like a week and once they finally moved it, they go and send it to another bordering state. Somehow it ended up in the hands of USPS instead and they actually delivered it. Fuck Fedex, never again.
Here's my thing about it
If you're using Facebook at work while sitting at the front desk as it appears to be in the picture, you're looking bad in front of customers
If you go to the back, like a shitter or a break room, or hell just on the other side of a door, I couldn't give a fuck
But if there is a package flipping end over end on a conveyor belt and my branch has a 1/5, heads gonna roll
Truth. FedEx a shit.
USPS > UPS > horse and buggy > FedEx
Suck, man. Will it just not support an X environment, or could you go commandline/ncurses only? I grant it'd be less useful that way.
This theme was really nice when I only had 1024x768 and had to make every pixel count, but now it's comically small. Time to find something new, I guess.
Nah, web pages are totally readable. It's the OS fonts that are way too small now. And this theme has jack shit for scaling options, there's one setting that's slightly bigger but it somehow causes text to get cut off in windows. #windowsxpproblems
It forces a max resolution that is lower than the native resolution, wasting around half the screen space.
The various workarounds with X aren't working as it also uses that resolution in the CLI.
However a downgrade to Wheezy will fix it, just amazing that I'll ever downgrade something in GNU/Linux wonderland, I thought that'd be something left for involuntary Windows 10 users.
Here's a link to the exact problem by another owner of a T23:
The solution seems to abandon anything after Wheezy, maybe not the worst with the current developments.
I'm thinking of purchasing either a t420 or a t61p to do simple work (word processing) and watch videos. I already have a desktop, but I'd like a laptop to do such things in the comfort of my bed (I have scoliosis and hate having to sit for so long). The reason I am going Thinkpad is because /tpg/ sold me on the keyboard, durability, modifiability and overall practical design.
The t61p has a nicer resolution and has cheaper listings on ebay, but it seems the screen is dimmer (I imagine I can just purchase a new CCFL).
If I do end up going for the t420, I will probably end up replacing the screen with a 1080p version.
So which should I get? Is there a different model more suited to me?
>i7-3520m @ 3.4GHz
until it starts running too hot and has to clock down to 2.9ghz
>possibility of upgrading it to i7-3632qm after resoldering (can be done for about $50)
you aren't getting a quadcore for that cheap, and the tools for the bga rework would cost at minimum hundreds of dollars.
plus it would absolutely destroy the life of that chip and anything around it.
>IPS low power screen
maybe compared to oled
>possibility of replacing the keyboard with the x220 one
great now it's mushy, has the same fuck tarded layout because of the bios, and you lost your backlit keys
>battery life up to 12 hours on 9cell battery, 25 hours on 9 cell + ultradock one
maybe if it's just sitting there, but my x220 could never get above 6 hours of battery life actually using the thing with a 9 cell. And I doubt ivy bridge would double my performance
Not him, but I have a x230 wih a 9-cell that has 85% of the original capacity and it gives me 9h on power saving mode under windows.
Maybe 7h under linux with the thinkpad battery manager.
Chicago USPS is shit, everytime one of my packages go through there they fuck something up. They send it to the wrong facility, wrong truck, or it just fucking sits there for a day because why the fuck not.
I'm a security guard. I can do whatever the fuck I want as long as I write a half decent report
Oh, and they are starting to put cell phones with real time GPS tracking where I work. They give you the phone. You can only stay still for 10 minutes max. So I think I walk around 2-3 miles per day on shift.
The whole time, I shitpost on /g/ and listen to music.
On the plus side, I don't hand write reports anymore. I just take pics with the phone and email them with descriptions of the photos as a "report" whenever I find something wrong
And I just hate Facebook. With a passion. Shit's worse than Win10
this is true, the i7 models are a whole lot more expensive for more heat, less battery, and a tad bit of performance improvement, id recommend going for the based i5m model
Now that I have Xubuntu install, any programs I should get installing on here? Good music/media and torrent program?
Still need to find a wallpaper that I might like, and some other things.
i'm jealous of that nvidia board senpai
just ordered the Intel Ultimate N dual band wifi chip for m'dankpad tho, should be here wednesday. probably the last upgrade the old girl gets before i just start saving for a T440
all good. like I said it's my first. sort of budget. everything i own is in storage and i have a daughter so i got tired of not having shit. I hope it plays diablo 3 well. but yeah i went out of my way to find higher resolution and nvidia.
But cool. I hope the wifi is good on them. Sort of worried about any sort of driver issues. will be running windows not linux. anything i should do in advance with a flash drive?
these things run pretty great with Windows 7, just do a factory reset when it shows up and you should be good to go. i'm only upgrading the wlan because there's dual band wifi available at school and 2.4ghz is usually pretty clogged up
not sure what diablo 3 requires to run, but i play CSGO on this thing daily on lower settings, and it doesn't have the nvidia card
i'm looking for a thinkpad that has an optical drive bay so i can run the OS on an SSD and put a regular HDD in place of the optical drive for storage.
i have a T420 which has been perfect for years, but it's been through lots of wear and tear so i'm looking at newer models.
i was about to buy the t450s, but there's no optical drive! there's this mini-hdd option or something.
anyone have any suggestions/recommendations?
Picked up a W500 for AU$150. (About US$105) Did I do good? Guy I bought it off said it was his brother's that he used while working at IBM. Pretty neat, I guess.
And the specs
I'll be giving it clean out later today
I got my T420 today. I took the keyboard out to replace the DIMM under it (2x4GB RAM from my old laptop).
After putting the keyboard back and tightening the screw on the back, the bottom right of the keyboard is pretty loose. If I press down on the arrow cluster and let go, the whole bottom, right corner bounces back up.
What did I screw up?
Nobody has any keyboard advice?
I didn't notice any movement in the keyboard before removing it, but I didn't specifically push on the arrow cluster. I assume it's supposed to be solid, yes?
It is. There are little nubs on the bottom of the keyboard that fit down under the palmrest.
You probably didn't get the nub in that corner fitted correctly underneath it. Undo the screws for the keyboard and try again. Try slipping it in from the bottom first.
Hey guys, I'm hoping someone can offer some insight here. My X201's wireless is really slow--around 9 Mb/s even when right next to my access point. I think it may be a hardware issue. Which wireless cards are compatible with the X201? I'm looking to buy possibly an AC card, but just another 802.11n would work as well.
is a nvidia graphics card necessary for someone who doesn't game?
want to get this but it's only integrated
Make sure the antennas are snapped in.
Make sure your wireless card isn't in some kind of powersave mode on battery or just in general.
Try changing your router to a different channel, might be interference if other wifi devices have the same problem.
which should i get?
i7 2640M (2.8 Ghz)
8GB DDR3 (max)
Intel HD Graphics 3000
for $395 or
i5 2.6 Ghz
Intel HD Graphics 4000
Anybody with an x230 care to share their shitposting-only CPU temp? Trying to decide whether or not I should go through the trouble of repasting. I sit right around 50C.
Thoughts? It's missing the stylus , and the OS. and a little rubber nub at the right side.
Ya know, unless it's from IBM I do not understand how anyone would willingly use a ThinkPad. From the cert fiasco to the current fw exploits to the seemingly non-stop flow of vulnerabilities that are released on a weekly basis on these machines, it's one of the more non-sensical "groups" here.
If you left me in a room with an x series, I would be able to own it in more ways than any other laptop being sold today, with any OS installed, BIOS pw or not.
It's literally Swiss cheese.
CPU is soldered. You're already guaranteed an IPS panel, so nothing to do there.
RAM (it'll take 16GB)
SSD of your choosing
Oleh BIOS if you're brave and then maybe a 802.11AC card for better wifi
fresh keyboard replacement if yours is well worn
new battery and/or slice battery if you don't have faggot noodle arms
flame paint job and bedazzling
So I doubt this qualifies as a business laptop, but I intend to treat it as one.
I picked up a 2011 era Asus ROG laptop (G73JH) from a pawn shop for $150. Comes with a Radeon 5870, a desktop class i7, and 6 gig of memory. (Don't ask.)
Anyways, it doesn't look too tarted up like gaming laptops tend to. About the only thing questionable is a small blue light under the screen hinge, but the effect is muted and tasteful.
(Sorta)portable Linux workstation? Did I do okay?
So my x220t came with 6gbs of ram. One is Samsung, the other is some chingchong brand. Is there any reason I should try for 16gb? Or will going to 8gb be enough?
I can't actually see a reason to go so high on this laptop unless it's to make a ram disk.
If that's what I think it is, that's not a bad deal.
would this be a good deal if I could talk him down to 100?
there aren't any pics so I'd probably have him send me a few pics before I buy it
I just want it as a secondary laptop in case I break my main one again.
using this 2006 macbook pro as a backup is painful
Well, I removed and re-fit the keyboard several times, but the arrow cluster area still flexed. I ended up cutting a bit of cardboard and putting it under there. Now it's as solid as the left side of the keyboard.
If you run Windows VMs then the more memory the better.
If you're running Linux only, 8GB is probably way more than enough.
Personally, I bumped my desktop to 32GB because I was running out of RAM while running a couple of VMs.
I've been looking into this too.
AFAIK, mSATA is just SATA run over the PCIe bus. I don't think there's even a performance improvement. Also, I think manufacturers do a lot of dicking around with specific pin numbers, leading to incompatibilities.
m.2, which is the successor to mSATA, isn't just SATA, and should be faster.
I'm not certain about these claims, that's just how I understand it.
odds are thats what ill try to do if i can get more money
that way if i break my laptop again i can just throw my 16 gigs of ram in there and continue to browse the internet like nothing happened
>i'm looking for a thinkpad that has an optical drive bay so i can run the OS on an SSD and put a regular HDD in place of the optical drive for storage.
>i was about to buy the t450s, but there's no optical drive! there's this mini-hdd option or something.
The T450s works essentially the same way that you're asking for. You can just put a 128 GB SSD in the M.2 (2242) slot, and then pop a 500 gig HDD in the 2.5 inch bay.
This kind of functionality is why I paid $200 more for a T450s over an X1 Carbon.
I have a displayLink usb2.0 adapter to DVI-D/A. It's actually worth it for casual dicking around, there's something wrong with some colors on it, but otherwise it's a good piece of shit (it's an i-tec USB2HDtrio).
I don't know if I'm right but I think big show was using a thinkpad last night.
>We wrastlin now
that's almost definitely a thinkpad
I don't know of any other laptop that supports an extended battery, has a yellow port on the back like that, and has a air vent
I bet its a t400/500
you type those commands into a terminal, not to sound rude or anything but are you new to linux?
obviously the arch part doesnt apply to you, but it is genuinely the best wiki for information ever
Due to Intel related irregularities, the i7 (also of same TDP) drinks considerably more power than the i5. You'd lose a good 2 hours or so. Oh and the machine can behave erratically depending on whether the 65W (throttling) or 90W (misbehaving trackpad) brick is attached. Though I think BIOS updates fixed that
On the upside I guess, it has USB 3.0
>If you left me in a room with an x series, I would be able to own it
No shit. Since when has anything ever been safe when you have physical access? I'm using a computer, not a one-time pad.
>in more ways than any other laptop being sold today, with any OS installed, BIOS pw or not.
Irrelevant. All it takes is one privilege escalation exploit. The quantity doesn't matter once it's vulnerable at all. I bet you think you're some kind of elite hacker because you think if someone hands you physical access you can break into a device? That's pretty trivial. A child could do it. Why don't you show me even one device where this isn't the case?
There's a reason server rooms are kept locked and data centers have very tight security. There's really not any way to stop someone who has physical access. It doesn't make the laptop bad, it makes you stupid for pretending this isn't the case for ANY computer. But don't mind me, troll away.
I have this old Acer laptop I want to install linux to but for some reason the thing refuses to boot from a linux boot disk. I have tried a DVD and a flash drive and both have failed. It will, however, boot form any windows CD I put in to it. Both the disk and flash drive work in my PC, just not on the laptop.
Its releated because its my moms old laptop that was replaced with the thinkpad I bought her.

Oh, I saw someone mentioning the T420 could come with a better display so I thought I was just unlucky. I'll get it then.
Option B was a T400 for 120€ but no one seemed to like that due to Core 2 Duo.
My point is, for that price, is a 1366x768 display something you should expect?
I'm pretty sure I'll be fine with that res on a 14" screen, I'm not the kind of guy who needs a 4K phone screen or shit like that.
>Welcome to babby Thinkpads
The 1600x900 screen is better but not by much. At least it has a usable resolution going for it, while the 1366x768 one is just garbage all around.
Found this, 1600x900 but uses a generic picture and gives no info about battery life.
Sorry for the language, tried to found it at ebay.co.uk but no luck.
It says there:
>Al igual que en la imagen. Tecn exacta. Por favor, tomar los datos de la descripción
AKA it's like the one in the image. Should be easy enough to send it back if it's worned out with such a statement from them.
Fine enough, just asked the seller about battery life time. They also offer 12 months warranty.
If the battery is any good I'll go for this one. I haven't used a laptop in my life but if you guys say 1600x900 is noticeable over 1366x768 I'll go for it.
None have hdmi, the t500 has a displayport that exports video and sound. Buy a displayport to hdmi converter dongle on eBay for a few dollars. An alternative would be to buy a chromecast and stream it from your current laptop
My x201 in it's final form, yay! Not gonna touch this thing anymore!
Is it possible (as in easy to find parts that fit) to upgrade the X1 Carbon 2015 from that 1080p TN panel to an IPS panel, without exchanging the entire assembly for the touch QHD one?
Do I need to be paranoid if I buy a used thinkpad with that vPro shit? I mean, they can disable your PC remotely and fuck you over, without even being connected to the internet.
it's this one, not sure if I should go for it.
Is there any legit way to preserve battery life over time? I've heard not charging it all the way helps but it sounds a bit hokey.
I just got a fresh 9 cell Lenovo battery, and I don't want it to be destroyed in a year.
Depends on how you treat them. If you use charge thresholds and keep depth of discharge to a minimum, you should get many years of use out of a genuine battery. If you're fully draining it and recharging to 100% over and over, it'll obviously wear out much sooner.
i love my skin
How did I do guys? I don't mind the screen that much since I'll be running it on an external monitor.
Sup' guys, i'm looking for a distribution to boot my thinkpad x200tablet. Window$10 piss me off. Someone get advices ? I need something that can handle the pentouch and fingertouch
(sorry for my poor english).
ok, mine isn't 220, it's 200. Windows 10 doesn't fuck up the pentouch but finger doesn't work on mine. and 10 is fucking not better. I was Win7pro before it was "correct".
Cannot get back to 7pro, it was a preowned computer and doesn't have a copy of Win7. (maybe in recovery hardrive but i need to backup all my shits before testing this solution)
So i'm looking to get a new thinkpad and put linux on my 200t
Maybe dualboot is a good solution ? i don't know. I want something efficient not for game(GMAintel cheapset.)
I have a x220 tablet with Windows 10 (I need it for school so please don't go off topic about me running Windows).
My question is, what do I need to install in order to customize what the button on my digitizer pen does?
Right now it right clicks and I can't find and settings to change it under pen and touch or tablet pc settings.
Also my trackpad is very jittery, and I normally don't use it but I would like to fix this problem. I can hold my finger still on the trackpad and it jerks and jumps all over the place. I tried installing lenovo ultranav drivers but it didn't change anything.
How many VMs could a t420 handle? Should 16gb be enough for 3 VM, would have 2 always on and 1 suspended.
>bare bones base debian system
>win7 VM for excel/word/ppt for compatibility
>ubuntu for coding
>maybe one more for misc
Should I install Fedora 23 or Ubuntu 15.10 on my new T450s arriving tomorrow?
I'm rather fond of Fedora. A bit more work for initial setup what with missing codec support and terrible fonts (whee, America) but past that it's nice.
I'm also really annoyed with Shuttleworth and don't want anything to do with his shit anymore, but you probably shouldn't take my words for gospel.
Cool. Installing thinkfan and cleaning the fan without even taking the board out made a difference of a few degrees at shitposting loads. Well worth it. Now about 45-47 instead of 50-51.
Still interested in what others are getting.
BTW folks I got the hard drive out. Had osme issues getting it to detect my SSD. i thought it was wrong size but now I got it. thing is pretty bad ass. runs great and liking the keyboard. How do you all move your screens around etc? or is that certain models?
>A bit more work for initial setup what with missing codec support and terrible fonts (whee, America) but past that it's nice.
I'd hardly call installing Fedy and checking them off is "work".
Try a different drive maybe? Or just take it out altogether and insert it when needed. My t420 ejects if you even brush up against the button. How often do you use an optical drive?
