Requested move[edit]

{{Requested move/dated|ThinkPad T Series Laptops}}

User:Trevor coelho/ThinkPad T Series LaptopsThinkPad T Series Laptops – This is a new page. I created it since the different series of ThinkPad laptops aren't really represented on Wikipedia. I'm a new user and have created the page as closely in keeping with Wikipedia's guidelines as possible - I'd appreciate any feedback, and input in case I've made any errors (this is my first attempt at creating a Wikipedia page). I'm planning on slowly introducing pages for all major products from Lenovo - like the different product series, and the various product lines (ThinkCentre, ThinkStation, IdeaCentre, and so on - which aren't represented on Wikipedia at all).

Since this page hasn't been reviewed (except by me) I didn't want to put an uncontroversial move request. Accordingly, I'm requesting a move this way, which I hope will allow the page to be checked and then moved to live Wikipedia.

I further moved it because we normally do not ened to qualify a brand name with the products it brands, unless there is some ambiguity. So far the only ThinkPad T series is for laptops that I know of.

Making this page searchable[edit]


I've added categories to the T Series page, but when I use Wikipedia's search function to look for it, I can't find it. Is the redirect function involved in this, somehow? If anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it.

Trevor coelho (talk) 06:55, 23 May 2011 (UTC)

Not sure what you mean? Categories have nothing to do with the search function. The search database takes some time (sometimes hours) to be updated consistenly since it is so huge. I find this fine. What exactly are you searching for, and what are you finding instead? I did notice that T series goes to a Suzuki T series motorcycle, T-Series goes to Super Cassettes Industries, while T-series (Toronto subway car) is also an article. This is a job for a disambiguation page, which I can create. Also found the Bentley T-series and Canon T series and Rover T-Series engine and Juniper T-Series, while ThinkPad T-series goes to the general article instead of this one. As suggested on the feedback page, I would propose moving this one to ThinkPad T Series since that seems sufficient to identify the topic. W Nowicki (talk) 21:33, 31 May 2011 (UTC)

Follow up: moved as proposed, and T series is now a disambiguation page. T Series perhaps not needed since search "does the right thing" and T-Series is kept to point to the India song label, since there are many links to that one, with a hatnote. W Nowicki (talk) 20:23, 1 June 2011 (UTC)


In October 2000, the ThinkPad T20 was upgraded...

Very doubtful, since the T20 was not announced until 2001. Suspect a typo in the source, since that is what it says. This is just a blog entry anyway, so it not a reliable source. Alas, there are many citations to this posting. They probably all need better sources. W Nowicki (talk) 22:20, 1 June 2011 (UTC)

the T420, the T420s, and the T520, have been lauded for their battery life – up to 30 hours with a 9-cell battery slice.[63]

My T420 barely lasts 3 1/2 hours on a brand new 9 cell battery, and 2 hours on the 6 cell, under light load. Running with an i5-2540m and Windows 10. Is this referring to battery life in sleep mode? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ryankrage77 (talkcontribs) 13:56, 27 June 2017 (UTC)


The image on the left does not show one of the last IBM Thinkpad models. From T40 on, they had a touchpad additional to the TrackPoint. This one is either a T20,T21,T23 or T30. The last model that was (at least partially) made by IBM was the T43. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:04, 17 August 2012 (UTC)

Recent Models[edit]

Is this marketing material or dictionary? Where are the models like T21 or T61? Searched information for T61 and found out this obscure wikipedia article. //arl

History Section Cleanup?[edit]

Much of the History section might be better presented as a table. There are also several places throughout that sound like marketing copy, making unsubstantiated value judgments (e.g. "powerful") or using press terminology as fact instead of quoting those sources (e.g. "arch-rival"). (talk) 21:47, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

It's always bothered me that older models are in History as text, and newer ones are in the table. I would be all in favor of putting all the models in the table. I am also all in favor of removing the unsourced ad copy. Kendall-K1 (talk) 23:26, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

T450 Missing from List[edit]

The list includes the T450s but skips the T450. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:06, 29 July 2016 (UTC)

T60/T61/T61p Missing[edit]

I like the narrative structure but the first Lenovo T-series laptops are missing from this post. Copy indicates that they're "replaced" by the W-series but it would be more logical to include these here.
