ThinkPad W701 can have 32GB RAM (via: Google Search)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/04/11

Earlier this week, I posted abut ThinkPad W701: Win7 Ultimate x64 suddenly only saw 8GB RAM of 16GB (via: [H]ard|Forum).

One of the search results in my query indicated it would be possible to put 32GB in it.

That’s nice, as the official Lenovo ThinkPad W701 specs and Lenovo ThinkPad W701 2500 Overview & Specs – Laptops – CNET Reviews indicate it should max out with 16GB.

This Google search returns lots of results indicating people actually run it with 32GB RAM using 4x8GB memory modules:

Reminder to self: you cannot repeatedly draw anti-aliased text without damaging the background

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/04/11

A small duh moment when I found this out myself the hard way: when repeatedly drawing anti-aliased text, it will alter the background on each draw.

So you cannot do that. Not in Delphi, not in .NET, not in Cocoa, nowhere (:
