    Light and portable: The ThinkPad T61 notebooks are approximately 26.6 to 31 mm (1.0 to 1.2 in) thin(9) with optimal travel weight starting at 2.09 to 2.33 kg (4.6 to 5.1 lb)(10) with travel bezel. The titanium and magnesium composite covers give added strength.

    Robust system manageability: The ThinkPad T61 notebook is designed to the PXE 2.1 manageability requirements for mobile systems.

    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) 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.
    (9) Thickness may vary at certain points on the system.
    (10) Actual weight may vary depending on vendor components, manufacturing process, or options. Weight includes battery and optional travel bezel instead of the standard optical drive in the Ultrabay Slim.

    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. Lenovo warrants that the ThinkPad notebook will conform to its Official Published Specifications when used in a suitable physical operating environment.

    • In the middle of the page, in the Quick path to a product field, enter your system's four-digit machine type and three-digit model number, such as 2007-123.

    • On the left side of the page, click Hints and Tips.

    • In middle of the page, select a category such as Windows 2000 to see the list of considerations or hints and tips for your machine type.

    Compatibility and supported products

    Contact your ThinkPad representative for a list of supported features and options.

    PC card  The ThinkPad T61 notebooks conform to the PC Card Standard Release 8. The PC Card Standard encompasses both the former 16-bit Release 2.1 card standard and the 32-bit CardBus card. Other PC card adapters that comply with the PC Card Standard may also function, but have not been tested by Lenovo.

    Vendor software compatibility

    Lenovo tests a large number of commonly used and available applications for compatibility with its ThinkPad systems using supported 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 T61 systems contain BIOS in their 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 T61 computer and to maintain compatibility with many software programs currently operating under Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems.

A service technician will attempt to resolve your problem over the telephone, you must follow the problem determination and resolution procedures. Scheduling of service will depend upon the time of your call and is subject to parts availability. Service levels are response time objectives and are not guaranteed. The specified level of warranty service may not be available in all worldwide locations, additional charges may apply outside your Service Providers normal service area, contact your local Service Provider representative or your reseller for country and location specific information.

    Customer Replaceable Unit ("CRU") Service  Lenovo will ship CRUs to you for you to install, Tier 1 CRUs are easy to install whereas Tier 2 CRUs require some technical skill and tools. CRU information and replacement instructions are shipped with your Machine and are available from Lenovo at any time on your request. You may request that a Service Provider install CRUs, at no additional charge, under the type of warranty service designated for your Machine. Lenovo specifies in the materials shipped with a replacement CRU whether a defective CRU must be returned. When return is required, 1) return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and 2) you may be charged for the replacement CRU if Lenovo does not receive the defective CRU within 30 days of your receipt of the replacement.

    Courier or Depot Service  You will disconnect the failing Machine for collection arranged by your Service Provider. A shipping container will be provided to you for you to return your Machine to a designated service center. A courier will pick up your Machine and deliver it to the designated service center. Following its repair or exchange, the service center will arrange the return delivery of the Machine to your location. You are responsible for its installation and verification.

    International Warranty Service (IWS)  IWS is available during the warranty period to customers who travel or relocate to countries where their computer is sold and serviced by a Service Provider authorized to perform warranty service. Eligible Lenovo computers are identified by their four-digit machine type.

    You can obtain IWS through the method of service, such as CRU, depot, carry-in or on-site, provided in the servicing country. Service methods and procedures vary by country, and some service or parts may not be available in all countries. Service centers in certain countries may not be able to service all models of a particular machine type. In addition, some countries may have fees and restrictions that apply at the time of service.

    NOTE: Due to the earth's magnetic field, cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors are manufactured to work in northern, southern and equatorial regions of the earth and may not produce a satisfactory image when moved between them. Any required adjustment (if possible) is not covered under IWS and may be subject to a chargeable action. The magnetic field does not affect Flat Panel LCD Monitors and ThinkPad LCD displays.
