Doof das! Habe letztens (vor 2 Jahren) den Akku getauscht. D.h. nur den einen; der andere ist immer noch der alte(!). Doof das!
Soweit ich weiß, hat der T480 das gleiche (dämliche) Design. Ich würde es beim nächsten #ThinkPad vermeiden.
So, ich glaube ich muss mein x240 mal gegen was moderneres austauschen. Nervt irgendwie, dass ich hier 2 4K Monitore rumstehen habe und die damit nicht bespielen kann. Hat von euch jemand eine Empfehlung, wo man gebrauchte Thinkpads kaufen kann? Ansonsten schlage ich beim nächstbesten EBay Händler zu.
I'm RESONABLY ANGRY wasting hours carrying my new machine about.
I'll do a write up and my Terror updating my BIOS without popping in my Window NVRam (which will never happen ... my machine has never booted Windows and that's not going to be a thing, ever).
I'll write up the fix ... suppose I'll blog.
where is the barbie pink #thinkpad of my dreams. will i have to custom order a 3d printed case for my x230? :blobfoxcry2:
Replacement #thinkpad arrived from Lenovo. Many passive-aggressive sounding emails in my inbox to send the old one back as it is well over the return date, but they'll have to wait until my files have been backed up.
and mmmm we have new car smell fragrance but where can I get myself some new electronics odour
Quick #ThinkPad question — anyone know a good place to get decent T440p batteries?
Lots of old Thinkpad enthusiasts would say that an X230 is still able to do modern tasks. Yes it can, but it's gonna be really hot. The CPU is struggling just to browse the web, especially if you access websites like Twitter and Youtube. I found a way to make browsing those websites less taxing though:
- Use Old Twitter Layout for Twitter
- Use pipe-viewer to browse and play Youtube videos
It's just infuriating bs. and the fact that one can't just pop-in genuine parts bought from Apple similar to EVERY SINGLE #Fairphone, #Samsung, #Motorola and #Lenovo #ThinkPad device is just a big #AssholeMove that should be outloawed - espechally since this is designed to prevent any #IndependentRepair from gaining tools and/or parts access...
NOONE's gonna wait WEEKS for a display or hand over a technician the IMEI / SN of a device to swap a screen - that's just arsenine!!!
Initial impressions of the ThinkPad X13 Yoga Gen 4:
I love the form factor and size. In that department, it's exactly what I was looking for out of a laptop. It's essentially the same size as my old X230, which I feel is ideal. This X13 is, however, much thinner and lighter while maintaining this "ideal" size.
I'm also thrilled with the power management and hardware compatibility of the onboard Intel CPU. Battery life with
TLP installed and configured is indicating between 9--12 hours, compared to the 3--5 hours on my AMD-powered T14 Gen 2. Furthermore, it also runs a lot cooler, and the fan rarely kicks in---again, all welcome contrasts from the AMD-powered T14 Gen 2 (which would get fairly warm and have the fan running even on battery and in power-saving mode).
The track-pad is much larger, the screen is 16:10 vs. 16.9, and the screen also appears to have more contrast/vividness and brightness or legibility at lower brightness settings all compared to the T14 Gen 2. The keyboard maybe has less travel, but the keys seem to "snappier", or more resistant to being depressed, which seems to compensate well. The build quality is a noticeable improvement over the T14 Gen 2, which, I suppose, is to be expected, comparing the X-series to the T-series.
The first thing I did was remove the bottom chassis cover and replace the stock Western Digital 256 GB SSD with a 1 TB SK Hynix P41 SSD. I then installed openSUSE Tumbleweed on it with KDE Plasma. Most things are working brilliantly "out of the box", while others are "half baked". For example, system hibernate is intermittent, though it does work when it wants to. ---This is still an improvement over the AMD-powered T14 Gen 2 which did not support hibernate whatsoever. The computer properly disengages the keyboard when folded into "tablet" mode, but the screen does not automatically rotate, nor does it provide a virtual on-screen keyboard. I have read that there are scripts or packages out there that can fix this, but I've yet to do a deep investigation. I understand that Gnome provides better support for these functions, as do distributions like Ubuntu. That being said, the touchscreen and on-board stylus works perfectly without any setup. #computer #thinkpad #x13
This week, I'm going to upgrade my #ThinkPad X60 from 32-bit Core Duo T2400 to the 64-bit Core 2 Duo T7200. I'm quite excited since that means this laptop will get faster and more usable by modern standards.
I found a good deal on such motherboard, which are pretty rare by modern standards.
Fellow Thinkpad owners, my T440s screen is slowly disintegrating. Not only do I have bottom backlight issues, today a bright green vertical line appeared on the screen (it seems blue + red pixels are dead/disconnected).
If I decide to replace the screen, what are my options for home repair? Do I need to get the exact screen that I already have, or can I go for an "upgrade" from a later model, e.g. get a fancy 1080p OLED instead of this old ghosting TN panel?
#Nautilus 45 really flies on #Fedora 39 beta with my auntie's #ThinkPad X220; #performance speedups everywhere are already noticeable, particularly when loading folders and generating thumbnails! This computer has never felt this fast.
The months I spent profiling, troubleshooting and testing various potential fixes/branches were worth it!
There is still room to improve #GNOME Files' performance for large folders: https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/nautilus/-/issues/?label_name=1.%20Performance
@xoagray and since #Lenovo stopped making #ThinkPad #CompactKeyboard|s with #wired #USB and I need a new #Keyboard for the #NUCbook anyway, I guess I've to get in contact with #Sprintek and get some #SK8707-06 - #FlexPoint™ PS/2 Pointing Stick Mouse Modules...

Also it would be an expensive shitpost unless one were to make like 10 of them at once...
But if someone wants to see that happen, let me know...
In the meantime, if anyone finds a silent tactile switch woth near zero travel like the #ThinkPad #CompactKeyboard with #UltraNav (USB) has (i.e. "Island-Style keycaps and scissor m-on-rubberdome) let me know...
The Analog Devices AD1984 is a very capable codec (24bit/96khz, excellent linearity) in the T6x/X6x line of #Thinkpad|s. Unfortunately hard wired to only 'notebook'-use. Re-tasking the Intel HDA 'Widgets' to make the Microphone-Input-Jack a Line-In worked … good in the signal sampling sense; as long as one is ok with mono input :(
Next up: Repurposing PORT-C_L and R (wired in the X61 to the internal Mic, both channels) for Line-In. Don't judge my soldering, it is bad. (and it's a dumpster-find)
Do you have any tips on how to improve battery life on a T14s Ryzen 5600u with Fedora?
It gives me a couple hours less than on Windows and that is pretty much the only thing preventing me from wiping the Windows partition altogether.
I'd love to keep using Fedora but I'm not dead set on it. I would consider Elementary OS as well.
I like Gnome over KDE. Does Tuxedo OS or PopOS give a better experience over all?
Boost if you can, please.
In other news, I've upgraded my laptop to #qubesos r4.2. Excited to try out the new #zfs driver, and I'm hoping #xen 4.17 supports my #thinkpad T14 Gen1 AMD a bit better. I've had the laptop for two years and it still feels like Qubes' AMD support is rocky.
That said, I've upgraded my Qubes #alpinelinux packages for r4.2. It looks like it works! I haven't tried the pipewire stuff, though. My Qubes system is heavily modified so who knows.
fuck it i have so many of these and nowhere to post them, so you get an assortment of #thinkpad glamor shots on your timeline
I've had my first laptop back in 2002 and have had only 2 laptops so far: T61 RIP (2002-2012) & T530 (2012 - present)
There have been reports of ThinkPads outliving their owners 😂
Besides, the Linux support is excellent for those machines (except the ones w/ nVidai GPUs.)

Oh, tiens ! Relançons ce délicieux vieux Thinkpad du début des années 2000, quand ils étaient super inventifs et bardé de ports en tous genres ! (Il y avait même une lumière au-dessus de l’écran pour allumer le clavier !)
Euh, retrouvons dans quel tiroir de quel placard il se cachait…
@aral I like portable stuff, but I also made the switch to ortholinear (for #dyspraxia a great thing). So I decided to replace my aging Lenovo #ThinkPad x220 by a refurbished Dell Latitude 5290 2in1 tablet. I am quite happy with it. I am typing this with this "old" tablet on an ortholinear 47 keys keyboard.
Of course the #StarLite is a nice modorn alternative.
My #linux laptop (#Thinkpad E590) #freezes in unpredictable situations. I've had this in various reinstalls of different Linux distributions (#ubuntu, #fedora, #debian). The EFI hardware test does not indicate any faults, neither did memtest. Can anyone give me a hint for finding out what's wrong? I suspect a hardware issue as I've changed the software stack multiple times, still I'd like to know what's wrong. I don't really know what to google for.
