ThinkPad T520/W520, NVIDIA, Wide Gamuts, and You!chipx86

Update: Linking to a better color profile below. Update 2: I narrowed down the ACPI issues, and have a better solution. I recently purchased a brand new, maxed out ThinkPad T520. My old laptop was 4 years old, and while I absolutely loved it (and still do!), an opportunity came up to get a T520 […](image)

I’m ready to smash my ThinkPadchipx86

I know I’m in the minority here, but I’m beginning to despise ThinkPads.

IBM Woes, Take 3chipx86

I foolishly thought things wouldn’t get any worse than the entire system shutting down (not even locking up, but shutting down, and not through the OS, just, boom, dead) on any ACPI call, but I was wrong. It turns out that the battery doesn’t charge unless the power cable is plugged in AND the laptop […](image)

IBM’s not winning pointschipx86

So it seems that the new motherboard IBM made me pay $700 for is locking up, and Linux is giving me confused ACPI errors I never had before. Furthermore, Linux no longer detects that I’ve plugged in the laptop power cable until over a minute after I plug it in. This is the exact same […](image)

A little bit of explanation as to why people haven’t been able to get ahold of me much lately… Last week was a crappy week, and I won’t get into all the details of it, except for one part that’s needed for this little story. I was at work, with my laptop sitting next to […](image)
