    Notes -
    (1) Power management reduces processor speed when in battery mode.
    (2) Maximum capacity; may require the replacement of standard component with largest supported component available.
    (3) GB equals one billion bytes when referring to HDD. Accessible capacity is less. Up to 4 GB is used in the service partition.
    (4) Maximum CD and DVD rates; rates are variable and are often less than the maximum.
    (5) For combination drives, maximum speeds are given in the following order: CD-W, CD-RW, CD-R, and DVD-R.
    (6) The V.90 modem can receive data at up to 56 Kbps from a compatible service provider and transmit data at up to 31.2 Kbps. Public networks currently limit maximum download speeds to about 53 Kbps. Actual speeds depend on many factors and are often less than the maximum possible.
    (7) Public network download speeds are limited to 53 Kbps. Upload speeds are limited to 48 Kbps for V.92 modems. Actual speeds depend on many factors and are often less than the maximum possible. V.92 functions and speeds require a compatible phone line and server equipment, and download of the V.92 support device driver when available. Check with your telephone and Internet service providers for availability.
    (8) Requires download of Client Security software from the Web.
    (9) 11a, 11b, and 11g wireless are based on IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b, and 802.11g. An adapter with 11 a/b or 11/a/b/g can communicate on any of these formats; the actual connection is based on the access point to which it connects.
    (10) This footnote does not apply.
    (11) These model numbers achieved the Ziff Davis Media Inc.'s Business Winstone 2002 BatteryMark V1.0 battery rundown time of at least the time shown. This test was performed without independent verification by the VeriTest testing division of Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. ("VeriTest") nor Ziff Davis Media Inc.; neither Ziff Davis Media Inc. nor VeriTest makes any representations or warranties as to these test results.

    This is a GAV PLET. A load sheet will be provided. These new EMEA GAV part numbers should be set up in SAP as variants.  
    GAVs are orderable part numbers which have a Sales Building Block structure. They will phase in over 2004 as new product announcements occur. They are intended to look and act just like an orderable PN with one main difference/benefit: Supply is not allocated at the MTM level.  
    As supply is not allocated at the MTM level, all orderable PNs can pull supply from the total pool of available component supply. This will greatly improve delivery speed and accuracy of committed delivery dates.

    Operating Environment

    ThinkPad computers are designed, built, and tested for high quality and reliability. When used properly in standard business environments, a ThinkPad system should be a reliable computing asset for many years. Harsh environments and abuse can damage ThinkPads since they are not intended to withstand extreme temperatures, dust, shock, or other severe physical environments. ThinkPad systems should not be used in unsuitable environments. For example, a ThinkPad system should not be used in non-stationary environments, such as in-vehicle installations, without additional casing or shock dissipation. IBM warrants that the ThinkPad notebook will conform to its Official Published Specifications when used in a suitable physical operating environment.

    The ThinkPad T43 computer conforms to the PC Card Standard 95, which encompasses both the former 16-bit Release 2.1 card standard and the new 32-bit CardBus card. Other PC card adapters that comply with the PC Card Standard may also function, but have not been tested by IBM.  
     

    Vendor software compatibility

    IBM tests a large number of commonly used and available applications for compatibility with its ThinkPad systems, using supporting operating systems and configurations. In general, you can expect that most vendor applications designed to run on supported operating systems and Intel-compatible system architectures should be compatible with a ThinkPad system. Some configurations, however, may not be compatible.

    IBM does not warrant or support vendor software products, nor guarantee compatibility of those products with IBM systems. Refer to the applicable warranty and license terms provided by the respective vendors.

    ThinkPad T43 systems contain BIOS in flash ROM, and a GUI to set up the system and power management features for Windows users. BIOS provides the hardware instructions and interfaces designed to support the standard features of the ThinkPad T43 computer and to maintain compatibility with many software programs currently operating under Windows 98 Second Edition, Windows 2000, and Windows XP Professional.

IBM 11a/b/g, IBM 11b/g, and Intel PRO/Wireless 2200 wireless adapters support ad hoc wireless connections for 2.4 GHz 802.11g connections at 802.11b data rates (up to 11 Mbps) as defined in the IEEE 802.11g standard. Ad hoc wireless connection mode is not supported for 5 GHz connections (802.11a) on IBM 11a/b/g or IBM 11a/b wireless adapters.

    • Do not use the RJ-11, RJ-45, or VGA port of the ThinkPad T43 notebook when it is docked on the ThinkPad Dock II, ThinkPad Mini-Dock, or Port Replicator II.

    • In systems with an IBM Dual-Band Wi-Fi Wireless Mini-PCI Adapter purchased in Japan, the wireless LAN feature cannot be used in countries and regions other than Japan.

    • Selected systems are wireless upgradable with wireless LAN mini-PCI options sold by IBM. Systems are not wireless upgradable in all countries.

    • Systems with the wireless LAN product permit legal operation worldwide in regions in which it is approved. This product has been tested and certified to be interoperable by the Wireless Ethernet Compatibility Alliance and is authorized to carry the Wi-Fi(tm) brand.

    • Using Wi-Fi wireless and optional Bluetooth products together may affect the performance of both.

    • Support for a DVI monitor is through the ThinkPad Dock II option and is limited to a resolution of 1280 x 1024 at 60 Hz.

    • Active Protection system does not support a second HDD bay.

    • Active Protection system is automatically disabled while the computer is:
      • Loading the operating system
      • In standby or hibernation mode
      • Resuming from normal operation after being in standby or hibernation
      • Being shut down

    Windows 2000

    • In systems with Windows 98 installed, when a wireless LAN adapter PC card is installed, the system requires a longer time to boot when the power is off. Boot time of approximately 150 seconds is to be expected. Normal boot times without a wireless PC card installed are approximately 70 to 110 seconds, depending on specific configurations. The time to resume from suspend or hibernate is not affected by the wireless LAN card.

    • Active Protection system is not supported.

    • IBM fingerprint software is not supported.

    OS/2 Warp V4.0 

    • When running on ac power, the system will not enter suspend/hibernation when a communication card is installed.
