Of all the laptops I’ ve worked on, IBM ThinkPads are by far the easiest to disassemble and fix. They’ re also pretty tough machines, as they survive substantially more. Thinkpad r50e series, thinkpad r52 series, thinkpad dock ii ( 254 pages). Very timely – the inverter in my T22 died yesterday.
I had trouble getting details on the inverter at the IBM/ Lenovo site – the FRU number of 10L1402 didn’ t seem to exist.
