    Technical information

    Specified operating environment

    Physical specifications  For systems with a 391.1-mm (15.4-in) TFT display:

    • Width: 357.5-mm (14.1-in)
    • Depth: 255 mm (10.0 in)
    • Height: 29.7 to 33.5 mm (1.2- to 1.3-in)

    Note: Actual specifications and weights may vary based on features, vendor components, or manufacturing processes. All dimensions are approximate.

    Titanium and magnesium composite covers provide added strength.

    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 ThinkPad systems because 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 nonstationary environments, such as in-vehicle installations, without additional casing or shock dissipation.

    http://www.lenovo.com/think/support


    Vendor software compatibility

    Lenovo 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.

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

    Limitations  ThinkPad T500/W500 series models featuring a Windows Vista (32-bit) / (64-bit) operating system can support up to 3 GB / 4 GB of addressable memory respectively.

    Planning information

    Cable orders  All required cables are included in the shipment group.

    Installability  ThinkPad notebook systems require approximately 20 minutes for installation, which includes unpacking, setting up, and powering on the system. Additional time is required to install optional memory and other features.

    Security, auditability and control

    Passwords 

    The customer is responsible for evaluation, selection, and implementation of security features, administrative procedures, and appropriate controls in application systems and communications facilities.
