Bought a couple weeks ago:

ThinkPad Laptop ThinkPad E450 Intel Core i5 5200U (2.20 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 5500 14.0" Windows 7 Professional 64 pre-installed through downgrade rights in Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit with fast shipping and top-rated customer service. AC Wi-Fi, USB 3, No Optical Drive


Mobile Hotspot is working

metropcs/t-mobile 4g-lte connection. i never used it before, but i had a chance (these instructions are based on my experience). it's working...

So, on the phone:

  • name the hot spot as simple as you can
  • set up the password, unsecured connection was not not working

.... read more or ask a question


SSD (just for my records)

it’s not a comparison or reviews. just the list of ssd drives installed in my computers or used for upgrade. usually, the criterion to choose was “size for reasonable price”.

First you want is to replace keyboard and mouse.


Adding Bluetooth

let’s say you have a “budget” laptop, iphone or ipod touch and you would like to listen music with a little bit better quality than your computer speakers allow you. at the same time you would like “to re-use” the same device with your mobile gadgets and with computer, and you do not want to be tied to your computer with 3-foot long cable.
