The super-popular “Pimp my laptop” series is back! Back in 2010 we pimped a Dell D620 from a old gray “Build for Windows XP” brick into a lean mean SSD powered, Windows 7 running, will-run-anything pimp-laptop! The summary of the pimp-project was :
“You can boost the performance of your old laptop considerably by upgrading RAM, Harddrive, Network and Operating System! When it comes to a classic like a D620 with its premium built quality and timeless design (in my oppinion), I would have no problems recommending an upgrade like this. If this had been a 2-3 years old budget PC with a plastic-fantastic build and a bad screen – then I would recommend buying a new computer. To bad the manufactors makes it almost impossible upgrading the graphicks, but this is because of the integrated nature of the gfx-chip I guess.”
And who can forget the ever popular youtube-hit
“7200 RPM vs SSD!?”
Well, now the series is back and I will try to make the most out of the ultra-portable 12″ Lenovo X60 running Ubuntu 12.04! I will juice this baby up with everything you can possible add to the USB-port! The only rule is that the equipment being added is portable.. I will not add a full size printer or a speaker-system out of this world. Everything has to be able to fit into my official “pimp my laptop 2012 – Peripherals edition” backpack!
What should we add to this little lenovo baby? Any suggestions will be considered by the “pimp my laptop 2012 – Peripherals edition” committee!
