So, there I was... on my bench, with the M90z I'd bought for 8 cents on the dollar on eBay, all chuffed with myself.
I installed all the drivers. But I couldn't find *any* touchscreen drivers on lenovo's website, or anywhere else, for the 5205a25 I had in front of me.
And it was then, and only then, that the implications of the matte LCD screen sunk through to me: even this i5-650 model -- the second fastest processor they sold with it -- must have been available without the touchscreen... and that must be what I got.
The touchscreen is mission critical to me, even if it costs me more.
But *none* of the secondary market sellers seem to even address the topic. And so this leads me to this forum, and this question:
Is there, anywhere, a complete list of all the M90z 7-digit machine type codes, and which ones came factory equipped with a touchscreen? CTO isn't an issue to me; unless the ad says touchscreen, I won't gamble.
I have the M90z service manual, but it does not say.
(To be clear here, I'm looking for a Lenovo-source document; the action cycle is too long to gamble on this more than once...)
