Can x40/ x41 keyboard fit in a x60 tablet thinkpad?

2008-06-27, 19:03 PM

I am quite obsessed to the old IBM thinkpad red / blue stripes design that I want to replace the keyboard of my x60 tablet to a x40/x41 one which it is available from fleabay (cheaper) or Lenovo. Before make the purchase, just want to know if it will fit physically ... any one knows? Did some google but did not find useful info. Any input would be appreciated.

 

Another question, anyone have tried installing vista 64 bit on a low voltage C2D based x60 tablet?

I tried once with Vista Ultimate x64; I haven't found any driver problem or any significant better. I have only 3GB RAM though, so I don't get any advantage of > 3GB memory address. However, no OneNote virtual printer for x64 is a deal breaker to me. Thus, I went back to 32-bit without hesitate.
