    The following is an experimental unofficial FAQ and link-only knowledge base for the X220 Series.
    No FAQ's yet, just links. Please try to understand that a negative topic name does not mean that there was not a simple solution to an issue.

    (You are welcome to post suggestions and additions, and I will probably add them. This thread is likely to change.)

    Rep'd. I really hope a mod sticky's that since it's inevitably the same questions that come up repeatedly.

    (I was actually coming back to remove my selfish request, but thanks : )

    I will keep working this thread for a while, and I might start on a W520 one, because it is the other machine I am interested in.

    Unfortunately, the Owners' threads are almost unreferenceable/unlinkable, which is why I tried to make this alternative, as an experiment.

    I am unsure whether or not to include offsite links such as the Lenovo Forums, where I am controversial already.

    Repped, this will come in handy when I get my machine.
    Do you have a link to a thread/product page with a displayport to HDMI adapter that passes video and audio properly?

    I went back about 60 pages of posts, which is approaching necromancy. Rather than editorialize, I just tried to find threads that have a question that might come up again, an answer, or people trying to find one.
