Site with truckload of Lenovo Service and Support Training information (including ThinkPad FRU, videos and specs)

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/04/15

Browsing the Lenovo web-site always takes a long time, and sometimes it is hard to find the right search phrase to soom in quickly.

The Lenovo Service and Support Training site has a nice treeview on the left that allows you to quickly find what you are after.

For instance, a friend wanted to know if 12.5 mm HDD’s would fit in the Serial Ultrabay Enhanced spot on a W70x series ThinkPad.

Presto: the treeview quickly lead me to http://www.lenovoservicetraining.com/ion/PSREF/O-W700.pdf

PS: 12.5 mm HDD drives do fit, but you need a 3rd party caddy for them (see search query below) or use the official caddy for 9.5 mm drives and live with a small gap.

Search query: 12.5 mm SATA HDD Caddy LENOVO Thinkpad Serial Ultrabay Enhanced, then follow the link and search for W701 or W700.

PS2: if you want to add a 2nd 9.5 mm HDD in a regular HDD bay, then you need at least the HDD Rubber Rails as specified in the ThinkPad W700, W700ds, W701 and W701ds Hardware Maintenance Manual on pages 92 and 105 (FRU part number 41V9756), but it is better to follow the Drive Rails and Caddys for the ThinkPad W700’s internal drive bays guide and get you this combination or browse to the million parts webshop , then in the “Shop Search”, search for “Lenovo Thinkpad T60 T60p Hard Drive Caddy Cover”.
