I don't remember seeing Toshibas being locked down on WLAN/WWAN cards. At least not on my L505, L650 or A300. The L505 is a C2D T6600, the L650 is a i3-380M, one of the A300s is a P8600 (if I remember correctly) and the other is an Turion RM-72 I think. (it's a Griffin S1g2 machine, that much I can assure you of, the power rating is kind of a dead giveaway, they rated a S1G2 + HD3470 card to a blazing 6.3A instead of the standard 4.7A - so this machine theoretically eats a whopping 120W worth of power!)

Also Fujitsu didn't lock their WWAN cards AFAIK, at least not on the Esprimo Mobile D9510 I had (which was about the only machine I've seen that shipped with a Intel WiFi Link 5300 card.). I do also have a Pi 3620 and a 3710, but none include a WWAN slot, as far as I know, with my only WWAN enabled machine (and which even has a card for it) being a HP Probook 4525s (upgraded, Turion P540 w/ RS880M iGP, 2x2GB PC3-10600, 320GB HDD, Win 10 Enterprise LTSC. Might need a new battery tho.)

SOB! Reminds me of my Radeon RX 5500 XT 8 GB that I got in August, 2020, IIRC. Ironically, it never got used even once, until the RX 5600 XT became a fancy paper weight!

It works fine, but the junction/T-junction? temp pretty much hits the roof! Easily at 80C and often fluctuates between 80C and 79C. This is even when I changed the TIM, SMH!

That high temp is only with heavy graphics, but I don't remember that being the normal!

This made me goaded to going ahead with installing the Radeon RX 6600 XT sometime later, before a brand new Ubuntu Jammy installation.

More scores today!

-ASUS P5B Rev 1.03G
-Sony Vaio VPCEB1M1E - i3 330M, HD5650. Needs a whole new display assembly, HDD, battery and DVD drive. Hope it works though, or it's getting gutted.
-eMachines G420 - depending on how the 9100M G inside it performs , it will either get a Turion upgrade or will be gutted in favor of a Acer 7730ZG.
-PS2 SCPH-75004b - needs a new laser ribbon, and possibly a new laser altogether

Updates:

-ASUS P5B - works fine, so does the E6600 it came with. Not sure what can I really do with a E6600 if the board supports as far as E5xxx Xeons with slight mods, but considering I paid peanuts for it, I'm not even complaining.

-Sony Vaio EB1M1/E - needs a LVDS cable for the inverter and the front bezel. Technically I'd need the WiFi antennae too but I can rig them up using Toshiba sticky antennae (you wouldn't believe how lifesaving those can be!)

-eMachines G420 - gutted since it was missing the heatsink on the chipset. Palmrest was adapted onto my Acer 7730ZG at the expense of having to remove the subwoofer. Not pretty but I have other units with better woofers anyways.

-PS2 - pretty rusty. I replaced the DVD drive and it started reading all discs. Does need new switch for the disc drive - the one on the power button is gone.

Scored another Vaio, this time a VGN-NR11M.

Nice little machine (albeit running on a rather old X3100 IGP) but goodness gracious it's picky as all hell with RAM.
