Ultrabase problem

The ultrabase for my Thinkpad x61 is damaged and needs to be replaced. Since this model has been discontinued, I wonder what my options are. Is there somewhere I can find an ultrabase to use as a replacement? Alternately, can I just plug in a USB optical drive? I don`t really need the additional ports provided by the ultrabase, but I do need an optical drive.

Re: Ultrabase problem

And yes, you can just use an external usb drive.  I kinda like the ultrabase coz you can adapt another hard drive to it and switch them back and forth with the optical drive.

Re: Ultrabase problem

Yes Ultrabase comes very handy.

 

It would be sad to abandon the idea. eBay might provide a solution indeed.

 

Just verify that the seller is already a trusted one with good previous feedback from customers (purchasers).
