           The Intel WiFi Link 5100 (1 x 2) and WiFi Link 5300 (3 x 3) follow IEEE 802.11 a, b, g, and draft n
           specifications. The Wi-Fi Alliance is certifying products based on IEEE 802.11n Draft 2.0 standard. The
           Intel 5300 Wireless Card is capable of supporting transfer rates of up to 450 Mbps. The maximum speed
           depends on the access point device and the number of integrated antennas used for connection.

           any of these formats; the actual connection is based on the access point to which it connects.

           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.
      8
           Public network download speeds are limited to 53 Kbps. 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.

           Intel Turbo Memory is nonvolatile cache technology. Instead of booting from the hard drive, a notebook
           using Intel Turbo Memory turns to standard flash memory. It also takes advantage of new Windows Vista

      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 because 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 nonstationary
      environments, such as in-vehicle installations, without additional casing or shock dissipation.

      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

with your product and are available from Lenovo at any time upon request. CRUs that are easily
      installed by you are called self-service CRUs, while optional-service CRUs may require some
      technical skill and tools. Installation of self-service CRUs is your responsibility. You may request
      that a service provider install optional-service CRUs under one of the other types of warranty
      service designated for your product. An optional service offering may be available from Lenovo
      to have Lenovo install self-service CRUs for you. You can find a list of CRUs and their
      designation in the publication that ships with your product or at

         http://www.lenovo.com/CRUs

      will be repaired or exchanged at a designated service center, with delivery or shipping arranged
      by you. You are responsible to deliver or mail, as your service provider specifies, (prepaid by you
      unless specified otherwise) the product, suitably packaged to a designated location. After the
      product has been repaired or exchanged, it will be made available for your collection. Failure to
      collect the product may result in your service provider disposing of the product as it sees fit. For
      mail-in service, the product will be returned to you at Lenovo's expense, unless your service
      provider specifies otherwise.

      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, cathode ray tube (CRT) monitors are manufactured to
      work in northern, southern and equatorial regions of the earth and may not produce a
