I have an SXGA+ ThinkPad X61 Tablet nearly maxed out (L7700, 4GB of RAM, SSD) but I want to completely max this thing out so I want to upgrade it to have a fingerprint reader, what parts would I need to do that? I saw an X61 Tablet fingerprint reader on eBay and the right bezel but I understand I'd need a new LCD ribbon cable that has the fingerprint reader cable with it, can someone point me to the right cable? thanks!

Also just wondering, does anyone know if the second Mini PCI Express slot on an X61T only has USB pins like the X60T? (Didn't feel like making another thread)

You should not need a new cable; simply switch the existing screen bezel for one with an FPR should work. The socket for FPR is on the inverter card. Edit: Well, apparently that's not correct. See below.
The second mPCIe slot should be a full-featured slot since some X61 configurations have a Turbo Memory card in that slot.

I don't see any sort of connector on the bottom of the LCD inverter

LCD cable is the same and there is just a 4pin (IIRC?) connector hanging which you can connect to FPR when you buy correct bezel with one.

I seriously don't see anything, if anyone can show me in the pictures where it would go that would be great!

Here's the photo of X60/61 Tablet LCD cable. Notice the black wire with length ~8-10cm hanging over the LCD ribbon? This is the FPR cable.

I have never seen X6x Tablet cable without one, but perhaps I've not seen enough? :)

You could always buy a proper cable, I bought a spare from here for a mere $6: http://www.ebay.com/itm/290662467604?ss ... 1439.l2649

How hard are the LCD cables to replace?
