Our local library let's has free to use 3D printers.

Today i picked up my legs! They're really strong. Just need to clean up the texture a bit. Kinda flaky around the corners.

Not all membrane keyboards are created equal. Today I picked up a Lenovo KB4721 at the local thrift store for $8.

It offers an almost like typing experience. These can be found on EBay for less than $20.

Now that I have my x1, the x230 is my "let's play with stuff that might break my workflow" computer.

Today I installed for the first time in years. It's more forgiving on a 1366x768 screen than . Neat.

Took a picture of my two laptops. On the left is my x230 and the other a x1 Carbon 3rd gen. Photo from my Canon EOS.

My replacement back for my new came with a Windows 7 Product Key.

Bought a x1 Carbon 3rd gen from a buddy yesterday for $180. It's a little beat up but it's beefy. 1440p screen and i7 chip. Touch screen. I'll be getting some replacement parts but this will probably become my daily driver now.

Got a few new keycaps. Finally replaced my Windows key with a proper key. Now I just need to find a way to replace Windows key on my .

Just picked up an Acer c720 from the swap meet for $20. Neat. Gonna flash it with and maybe bump the SSD to 128. Its not nearly as fast as my but it's tiny. Like roughly the size of a pad of paper.

I wish there was an affordable OLED screen for my . I got one on my phone and all other screens seem inferior.

Got the SSD in my x230 setup and there is a nice little boost to applications loading. Hopefully it'll give me a little battery bump too.πŸ‘

Gnome is a little cramped on 1366x768 but it still works. Not sure if I should attempt the 1080p mod for my x230.

I want to buy a x200 tablet just for artwork. Nothing else. Just Krita and MyPaint on that thing.

I'm in no place for more hardware investments right now.

Got my x230 charger shipped from my sister. I'm back in business. Also my off-brand 9 cell charger is working perfectly.

I got my 9 cell battery for my x230. It had a 80% change when I pulled it out of the box which is good because I forgot my charger at my parent's house this weekend.

Ordered my battery from Amazon and it'll be here on Sunday. Pretty excited. Still waiting on my wireless card from china.

The bad:
The winds are strong today so my sinuses are acting up. The Grand Prix is happening so I'm hearing that all day.

The good:
It's beautiful out. Got date night with the girlfriend tonight and I'm ordering my 9 cell battery today.

I know a lot of people like the traditional keyboard but this might be the best chicklet keyboard I've ever used.
