We need a new Category W-Series on this Page.

Could anyone add an explanation of the scheme of recent Thinkpad's model names? For example, AFAIK, the last letter indicates the keyboard language.

subcategories wrapped onto new page


The subcategories exceeds 200 entries and wrapped onto a new page, which right now contains just the Z60t.

Perhaps we should rethink this page?

--Tonko 17:56, 18 Oct 2005 (CEST)

There's not much we can do about this.

We could categorize certain models together (like numbered, T-Series, etc.), but that raises model browsing effort. Further models will come and hence the second page will fill up more or less quickly. I think the problem is that the "next page" link is not drawing a lot of attention. Maybe we could do something about this, probably the stylesheet has to be modified.

I found a minor solution in the two links i just added next to the page heading. They are derived from the previous and next links and implement a simple means of filtering.

I would like to start adding information about the 240z how do I get it listed on this page? Kuop 06:48, 30 June 2006 (CEST)

New Models like C-series and N-series.

I guess someoneshould write about the new C and N series of Thinkpads as they made their way into the market and are sold by almost any computer shop around the globe, that sells notebooks. I see this matter as quite important.

Lenovo's 3000 series is not branded "ThinkPad". Is the hardware and firmare anything like recent ThinkPads?

--Thinker 19:23, 4 August 2006 (CEST)

They may not be branded as "Thinkpads", but they have IBM-like part numbers and IBM-like hardware maintenance manuals (complete with IBM-like part numbers for the various internal parts), at least for the N100 series. I'd vote for allowing their inclusion.

I do have a Lenovo 3000 N100 0768-BJG for one month. I buyed it due to the lack of thinkpad available in France these times. Support is made by IBM, FRU are available like thinkpads, OnSite waranty is available like thinkpads. It's worth the value. Mine is quite well, core2duo 1.8GHz, 1x1Go DDR2, 100Go Sata, fingerprint, GeForce 7300, fingerprint reader, 16:10 1680x1050 LCD. I upgraded with a second 1Go DDR2, and a 9 cell battery available in lenovo dealer as with thinkpads. I'm running ubuntu edgy right now.

I'd still like to add information about the 240z model but do i edit that list? Kupo 08:02, 3 March 2007 (CET)

W & SL Series

Lenovo introduced the W Series and SL series, both of which still need to be added to this page.

I need help with the Ultrabay Batteries

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this forum and I have a question regarding the Ultrabay batteries.

I've got an R61i with an Ultrabay Enhanced Slot. I'm looking for a fitting battery, but right now all I have is a Slim battery II and the machine recognizes it, but its very loose and sometimes falls out... Is there an Ultrabay battery that fits into the Ultrabay Enhanced Slot or is there an adapter or something like that which will give my Slim battery a snug fit?

I'd be happy for any comments.


This is more a question for a mailinglist or forum. But as far as I know, no ultrabay enhanced battery exists, and neither is there an adapter to make the slim devices fit better in the larger enhanced slot. You might just want to contact the helpdesk with the question. --Tonko 17:45, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

Lenovo non Thinkpad Models formerly known as 3000 series

I have some experience with low cost Lenovo N500 and G550 notebooks, delivered without Windows, and running Ubuntu. Mostly good experiences. Suppose, we should have a category for these here ...

-- ?

That depends. This wiki is about ThinkPads, and while we don't get out of our way in a witch-hunt to purge any non-ThinkPadness from the wiki, we don't exactly encourage adding any non-thinkpad-related information here, other than a few scattered pages that says "this is not a thinkpad"...

I don't know about Akw and Tonko, but I know I'd be okay with a non-thinkpad category, as long as it is used only to host a *few* pages, maximum one per series, describing the non-thikpad laptop and with some details.

--hmh 11:42, 28 November 2009 (UTC)

Just as Hmh, I am not totally opposed to adding other Lenovo notebooks/netbooks. The concern I have though is that since those are so different from the ThinkPad line, that they will dilute the information we have today with issues, hints and tips which are not applicable to the ThinkPads.

Thinkpad Edge

Could you remove the word "glossy" from the description since not all versions of the Thinkpad Edge are glossy? RCX 16:17, 3 July 2011 (CEST)


indeed, i'm typing form a E425, which lacks a category, and it's not glossy. they call it "anti-glare screen" on the site.

L Series

I don't seem to have permission to edit this page. There's no description for the L Series.

The L Series is the replacement for the budget R Series, but now it includes enterprise management (Intel vPro), unlike the R Series. Lenovo did this as many companies wanted something cheaper than the T Series in the economic downturn. Jason404 13:18, 31 August 2012 (CEST)
