Tablet/Pen Coating renewal?

2008-08-01, 12:47 PM

I'm getting quite annoyed that the coating on my x61 is disintegrating, and in my mind unwarrantedly so, i want to know if i can use something like Plastidip, on my notebook.

 

Has anyone had any experience with it?

 

And would it void my warranty?

drtigerlilly,

There is a company making a full-screen protective cover that allows pen input. I believe the name is Thomas Engineering.I ordered one for my M400 but did not put it on the screen because I misplaced it. This protector was discussed positively on Tabletpcbuzz in older messages now lost over there. If Googling try Pittsburgh in the search string if more obvious inquiries fail.

plastidip would ruin your display.   it's polyurethane-based and would apply thick, uneven, and would likely render your display completely unusable.   it's meant for hand tools, not tablet displays.

 

needless to say, it would certainly void your warranty. ;)

 

 jonathan's suggestion above is a much better solution to your problem.
