x200s new keyboard and speakers

2020-06-29, 3:06 AM

Yes, it is old, but it is still very useful to me because of the weight.  I have Win7 on it on an ssd.  I am thinking of putting Ubuntu on it as well.  All data is stored on a 128gb mini-sd card.  It is showing some signs of aging, though.  The keyboard has lost some of its springiness - where can I find a new keyboard?  and new speakers?  If I get a new NIC and BT/wifi card for it will they be faster/better/use less energy, etc?  any suggested hacks for this?  hacking is just cool!

I don't think Lenovo is still selling parts for such systems. So my guess is that you will have better luck in eBay, Amazon and similar. This for both keyboard and speakers.

 

Talking about mods, you could try replacing the BIOS with Core-boot, or do an AFFS screen mod.

Thanks!  I will snoop around.  I would really love to find a keyboard this is backlit, i.e. has tiny lights in each key, but that  also seems unlikely.

Unfortunately there are no backlit keyboards for this series. They started with the new 6-row, island style KB on the xx30 series.
