Description

ENERGY STAR

All ThinkPad notebook models are designed to meet the EPA ENERGY STAR12 requirements for using less than 15 watts of power in sleep mode when enabled by the power management software provided with the systems.

Unique data protection

These models include integrated fingerprint reader technology from ThinkVantage technologies to help protect access to your ThinkPad notebook and data.

  • Because fingerprints are unique, using them along with other security measures can provide strong security.
  • Fingerprint reader is built right into the palm rest area of the computer. When used with Password Manager and the Embedded Security subsystem, pass your finger over the reader instead of typing passwords or combine it with passwords.
  • Combine the integrated fingerprint reader with Password Manager and the Embedded Security Subsystem for strong security measures that are easy to follow. Security software is preloaded for an integrated solution out of the box.
  • Administrators can implement strong security policies, and users can meet ongoing password requirements easily.

Compatibility and supported products

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

PC card: The ThinkPad Z60m notebook conforms to the PC Card Standard 95. The new PC Card Standard 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 Lenovo.

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.

ThinkPad Z60m 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 Z60m computer and to maintain compatibility with many software programs.

Terms and conditions

IBM Global Financing: Yes

To obtain copies of the Lenovo Statement of Limited Warranty, contact your reseller or Lenovo.

In the United States, call 800-426-7378 or write to:


    Warranty Information
    P.O. Box 12195
    Research Triangle Park, NC 27709
    Attn: Dept ZPYA/B676

Warranty period

  • System hardware — One year on parts and labor
  • System battery — One year

Optional Lenovo features initially installed in a Lenovo system carry the same warranty period as the system. If installed after the initial system installation, they carry the balance of the system warranty or the optional feature warranty, whichever is greater.

Warranty service: If required, your service provider provides repair or exchange service depending on the type of warranty service specified for the machine. 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 provider's 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, return instructions and a container are shipped with the replacement CRU, and 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.

Customer carry-in or mail-in service: You will deliver or mail as your service provider specifies (prepaid unless specified otherwise) the failing machine suitably packaged to a designated location. After the machine has been repaired or exchanged, it will be made available for your collection or, for mail-in service, the machine will be returned to you at Lenovo's expense, unless your service provider specifies otherwise. You are responsible for the subsequent installation and verification of the machine.

This type of service is called EasyServ in the U.S. and Canada.

Call 800-426-7378 to assist with problem isolation for hardware to determine if warranty service is required. Telephone support may be subject to additional charges, even during the limited warranty period. If a hardware problem is identified, the Customer Support Center will either initiate the shipment of a CRU or arrange for a courier to pick up the system for overnight delivery (where available) to the repair location. Most repairs should be made within 48 hours after the system is received at the repair location (actual repair time may vary). Keep the original shipping carton for shipping to the repair location. If the original shipping carton is not available, the courier will deliver a shipping carton and return to pick up the system for delivery to the repair location.

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, 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.
