ordered a refurbished laptop. didnt have much to spare, so i went for a 5 years old Lenovo x200 Tablet. think it went out in 2011. came with 4 gb ram but since chipset can handle 8 gb i spent some time trying to have it work. found that crucial modules in 4 gb size with ref CT51264BF160B do work (the models with J and the end don't). Two of those, 4 gb each, gave me 8 gb in bios and windows (it came with win7...). memtest86+ seems happy. waiting for ssd to reach me (kingston uv400 240 gb) so i can install it and put a fedora 64-bit there. this will let me keep the original hard disk with its win7 and rescue partition in case i need to sell/give the machine in its original state. found that erenbach (GER) sells 4400 mhA batteries for the machine, in small 6-cell format. a bit old and not too powerful, but small and handy, this machine should soon be my main c++/java development pad.
