ThinkPad Mini Dock Plus Series 3 (170W)

Just got my new dock a few days ago and decided to post some pictures and write a quick review since when I was looking to purchase it I couldn't find much info online.

Windows 7 Reinstall on a Lenovo W520

Just thought I'd post some quick notes on doing a Windows 7 reinstall on my Lenovo W520. I'll go over some useful tools and some frustrating problems I encountered and how to avoid them.

I'll also list some really useful tools that should make your reinstall much easier regardless of what type of computer you have.

Here are some pictures and a brief explanation from installing the extra memory and Intel 310 mSATA SSD install in my Lenovo W520.

You will need a small Phillips screw driver and about 10 minutes. A long thin piece of rigid plastic also helps to remove the keyboard.

Christmas in July - Lenovo W520 is on its way.

Just checked my UPS tracking page and noticed that my laptop is now coming today instead of Monday!

I'm pretty excited as it should be a huge improvement from my aging (almost 4 year old) Dell Vostro 1500. The specs will be a big improvement for sure.

I'll be posting some more pictures soon but for now check out the Intel 310 SSD I'm going to be using.
