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 systems because they are not intended to withstand extreme temperatures, dust, shock, or other severe physical environments. 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.
The preinstalled Microsoft® Windows Vista operating system supports the new ThinkPad W700 series mobile workstation.
Operating systems other than those preinstalled on the systems may not provide full-feature functionality. To view considerations or Service Hints and Tips by operating system, visit
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.
ThinkPad W700 series models featuring the Windows Vista 32- or 64-bit operating system can support up to 2.5 GB or 4 GB of addressable memory respectively.
The Active Protection System is not supported on RAID configurations.
