Features and options
|(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)||Variable read rate. Actual playback speed varies and is often less than the maximum possible.|
|(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)||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 a 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.|

Planned Availability Date:
Integrated fingerprint reader technology on all systems helps to prevent unauthorized access to your ThinkPad notebook and data.
The Active Protection System, a ThinkVantage(TM) technology, helps protect your HDD from some damage that could be caused by shock. A system board-mounted sensor continuously monitors your ThinkPad notebook for sudden movement, and temporarily stops the HDD when a fall or similar event is predicted.
Light and portable: The ThinkPad T60 notebooks are approximately 26.6 mm to 31 mm (1.0 to 1.2 in) thin(10) with optimal travel weight starting at 2.17 to 2.54 kg (4.8 to 5.6 lb)(11) with travel bezel. The titanium and magnesium composite covers give added strength.
All ThinkPad notebook models are designed to meet the EPA ENERGY STAR(12) requirements for using less than 15 watts of power in sleep mode when enabled by the power management software provided with the systems.
Robust system manageability: This notebook features support for IBM Director Agent and is designed to the PXE 2.1 manageability requirements for mobile systems.
Help reduce your IT costs and simplify client deployment and management.

Keyboard with TrackPoint and enhanced features: The keyboard has the familiar layout of a ThinkPad notebook with function keys for quick access to system functions such as power management control.
Tap the TrackPoint to speed icon launches and help reduce keystrokes. The programmable center button enables fast scrolling of Web sites and documents or fast panning across wide spreadsheets. Switch to the innovative magnifying glass feature to enlarge screen views in any application.
Memory: The T60 systems have 512 MB SDRAM 667 MHz SO DIMM memory standard, expandable to 3 GB. These systems can be configured for up to 3 GB of addressable memory. Memory options up to 1 GB DDR2 SDRAM 667 MHz SO DIMM and one 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM 533 MHz SO DIMM can be added in the two slots for memory expansion.
To achieve the maximum 3 GB to which memory can be expanded, you need to replace the 256 MB or 512 MB card with a 1 GB DDR2 SDRAM 667 MHz SO DIMM card and add a 2 GB DDR2 SDRAM 533 MHz SO DIMM card in the extra slot.
Important information about memory.
On the T60 and T60p systems, even though it is possible to physically installed memory size to 4 GB, actual usable memory size will be limited to 3 GB. This limitation comes from the current 32 bit PC architecture.
Recommended for memory expansion are 2 GB PC2-4200 DDR2 SDRAM 533 MHz SO DIMM or 256 MB, 512 MB, and 1 GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM 667 MHz SO DIMM.
If PC2-4200 DDR2 SDRAM 533 MHz SO DIMM and PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM 667 MHz SO DIMM are used at the same time, actual memory access speed is aligned to 533 MHz.
PC card: One Type II slot and one ExpressCard/54 slot.
Storage: The customer-removable HDD is 60 GB (5400 rpm)
An optional second HDD in the UltraBay Slim expands storage. The second HDD option, requiring an adapter, can be used with all ThinkPad T60 and T60p models.
Drives: 24x-24x-24x-8x maximum CD-RW/DVD drive
Audio: Full-duplex audio on the system board and the integrated microphone allow voice annotation and audio. The system is equipped with audio in/out jacks for stereo speakers, headphone, or external microphone. The system supports Microsoft DirectSound applications.
Infrared (IR): The system has one fast IR transceiver (up to 4 Mbps) for wireless file and data transfer and printing. The ThinkPad T60 notebooks comply with the Infrared Data Association (IrDA) IR data link specification V1.1.
Other features: Included ports:
A PS/2 or serial port are not included, but both can be obtained through the optional, ThinkPad Advanced Dock or ThinkPad Advanced Mini Dock.
The USB 2.0 ports, which connect external drives and other devices, are supported with Windows XP Professional.
The 168-pin connector supports these optional docking solutions:
The ac adapter is an ac-to-dc converter that supplies the necessary power to the computer. The ac adapter also charges the battery pack when it is installed in the computer.
Li-Ion battery pack
Approximate operation and charging hours:
(14) Recharge time varies.

Heat dissipation: 222 / 307 Btu/hr maximum
Heat emissions: 65 / 90 watts maximum
Air temperature for shipping and storage: -20 degrees to 60 degrees C (-4 degrees to 140 degrees F)
Acoustic noise level: Category 3D (office environment)
Note: All measurements are made in accordance with ISO 7779 and reported in conformance with ISO 9296.
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 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. Lenovo warrants that the ThinkPad notebook will conform to its Official Published Specifications when used in a suitable physical operating environment.
Note: The maximum temperature when the system is on is linearly decreased from 8,000 ft to 10,000 ft.
Altitude: 10,000 ft maximum (3,048 m)

PC card: The ThinkPad T60 notebook conforms 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.
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 T60 systems contain BIOS in their
flash ROM and a GUI to set up the system and
BIOS provides the hardware instructions and interfaces designed
to support the standard features of the ThinkPad T60 computer
and to maintain compatibility with many software programs currently
operating under Windows XP.

On the T60 and T60p systems, even though it is possible to physically install 4 GB of memory, the actual amount of memory addressable by an Operating System will be limited to 3 GB. This limitation comes from the current 32 bit PC architecture.
Cable orders: All required cables are included in the shipment group.
Installability: ThinkPad notebook systems require approximately 20 minutes for installation. Installation includes unpacking, setting up, and powering on the system. Additional time is required to install optional memory and other features.
Supplies: Not applicable
Passwords: These password protection mechanisms are available:
In addition, an optional locking device in the IBM security slot provides physical security.
