Thinkpad X200 Unboxing
I just got my hands on the Thinkpad X200 that I ordered nearly 2 months ago. I’m planning on writing a few posts on getting Ubuntu installed, but in the meantime I thought I’d be lame and do an unboxing since I’m so excited.
The box was pretty small, I was worried that they just shipped the accessories first.
Sure enough, though there was actually a laptop in there
That’s an ATT SIM card in the battery bay. I don’t plan on using wireless broadband, so I hope I don’t have to de-activate this or anything.
The 9-cell battery is one of the things that sealed the deal on this laptop for me. I’m sick of running out of battery after 2 hours or so.
The X200 is a bit smaller than my 14.1″ T61. Hopefully not too small though.
Finally, the money shot. A bit anti-climactic with all of the sticker spam. I think that someone came up with a word for the stickers that they put all over laptops, but I can’t seem to find the blog post now.
That’s it for now. I have already upgraded it with 4GB of 3rd-party RAM, which was not as uneventful as I would have thought. After all, how much of a no-brainer is throwing more RAM into a machine (provided that you understand the difference between DDR2 and DDR3)? I’ll have to save that story for another post.
