This page provides information regarding unusual known problems, or rather, hardware/software design defects that may appear on a ThinkPad. Known problems that are related to age, are not considered unusual and will not be listed here. Some examples include:

Hardware problems are design defects related to a physical component that resides on or in a ThinkPad, which may result in premature death or reduced functionality. Fortunately, some components are modular and can be swapped for a fault-free equivalent in certain cases. Software problems on the other hand, are design defects or mistakes related to a component's firmware. Depending on the severity of the problem, some can be easily resolved with a simple modification, but some can't and may require special tools.
