And after leaving Beijing and being so quiet, my faithful Thinkpad has also decided to go quiet… well I can still work on about 3-400 pixel width (by 1050 high) one could argue. The problem is that I see no reason to upgrade, the machine runs fast enough and I doubt a new laptop will bring me anything better (than this 4 years old one).
So it’s getting fixed (580rmb, 3-4 days) and I shall soon rejoice 😀

Fred forgot to update you guys that he got his screen changed at RMB 480, the shopkeeper gave him back RMB 100 and said “you paid too much” 😉 nice people!
Yes.. I also didn’t mention I had to go through the usual “Chinese misunderstanding”, that is giving a laptop with a broken 1400×1050 screen and getting a 1024×768 new LCD as a replacement, and the shop owner was not happy (even though I made it clear when giving the laptop). Anyway 2 days later I indeed got a second hand working 1400×1050 with a 100RMB discount that I didn’t even ask for. So definitely kudos to the shop at the end. I’ll definitely return whenever I have an opportunity.
Oh yes, and the sound no longer works (both speakers and headset)… need to check a bit more before accusing anyone 😉
