I lost my hard drive cover for my x61 tablet.
7764CTO THINKPAD X61 TABLET SERIES
I am at a loss at where to buy one. Is there an official IBM / Lenovo spare parts facility?Any other reliable company thathas parts more cheaply?
Anyone, I found one allegedly ORIGINAL spare part on ebay. Though, the seller insists it is for X61 and NOT for x61 tablet. Another expert friend is sure it will fit.
I guess the only sure way to know is to find the part number for both the tablet and non-tablet x61 hard drive cover. If it is the same then it should be the same part. Or someone has both laptops sitting on his desk and can try to interchange the covers?
$6.39 USD with shipping!!
It looks exactly like my x61 tablet drive cover. Is it the same?
here is one with caddy
would be very useful for a second hard disk .......... to have a caddy
If I want to order such spare parts at IBM, how would I do that?How much would it cost?

Seems I found the answer to my own question
different part numbers for x61 and x61 tablet cover. I still cannot believe that they are different!?
Now I wonder, is the caddy the same for both? could not find the part number for that!!
here seems to be the part

having owned both the X61 tablet and notebook, i can confirm that the plastic drive covers are quite a bit different in shape.
the caddies, however, are the same. unfortunately they're only sold with hard drives and not available as a separate FRU.
