That's cool that it re-enables the battery automatically.
About a half mm seems to be ideal, yeah. As for your Fenders, I play fingerstyle so don't generally use picks for guitar playing, apart from sometimes a thumbpick. If I did ever use a fingerpick it'd generally be a super-stiff JD Jazz III or red stubby, both mini picks. For PC work a ~.5 tho yes.
butter knife is where its at.
That's the thing I enjoy about Lenovo thinkpads is their user servicability and how modular they are. Especially the feature in the UEFI that disables the battery before you start pulling things apart.
I managed to merge three faulty X1 Gen 2 Carbons which were about to be disposed at work (ugh, that touch-bar) into two fully functioning ones.
Nice write-up and displays well on iOS and android here
Excellent, thank you.
So do I, but have many varieties of picks from a mis spent youth .
Those Jazz picks sound really nice - the 2mm was my fave.
As opposed to some laptops where you almost need to do a full teardown just to add RAM or swap drive over
Hmmm pay $3000 for a crappy macbook that can't be upgraded or buy a Lenovo which I can upgrade 2x m.2 ssd's, upgrade the ram to 64gb, and upgrade the wifi to wifi6... When I want to?
I'll take the "interior doesn't look at good as apple" over the "i never see the interior cos there's no point in ever opening this" laptop.
Just bought a 580 during eofy sale so very happy to see this. Cheers!
Would be keen to see a thermal paste upgrade too, it's been more than a decade since I last installed a heat sink :-o
What a massive pic-heavy guide. Nice one Agg.
I haven't been near a Thinkpad for a few generations now, but was always been pretty happy if I was handed one as a work laptop.
Nice to see that they've kept the "red dot" in the design language, though I seem to recall that the touchpads were always decent enough too.
I prefer a Fender light (or fingerstyle) for impressing the ladies with some energetically strummed flim-flammery.
Too bendy for this kind of work of course, go a hard for case separation, or maybe a Medium if the material finish marks/scratches easily.
Any issues running linux on this?
I have an e485 and I find that a Wifi upgrade is a must. The 1x1 card that came with mine was so slow. At least the laptop is so easy to work on!
Which card did you upgrade to, Axelo Sean? Can't say I've noticed any issues with mine, seems to work fine even in the semi-blackspot of the dining room at my place.
I replaced mine with an Intel Wireless-AC 9260. The stock wifi card just had low speed so it can't use the full speed of my internet connection.
there was a recent post by Agg where he says what "broadband" speeds he gets out there in the sticks ... 1x1 wifi will probably still saturate his NBN link
26/9 of pure buttery NBN goodness, baby.
arr, dont be fooled by the big numbers, speed aint everything.
it's just most of it ...
"NBN Co on track for 2020 completion"
Aaaaaand, that's your lot, that's all you're getting.
Tomorrow's technology today!
Woooo, Liberal technology governance for the win!
