The meaning? There is no implicit meaning behind the term thinkpad, it was a made up term by IBM for their laptops. The ThinkPad name itself was inspired by leather-bound pocket notepads issued to all IBM employees with the corporate motto 'Think' embossed on the cover. The combination of Think and NotePad lead to the name ThinkPad. IBM's corporate naming team was initially against using the ThinkPad name since all previous IBM computers were referred to by model numbers rather than names. However, the popularity of the ThinkPad brand with the press convinced IBM to retain the name.

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.


Thanks

How do i unlock my thinkpad T60


How can you NOT know how to unlock your own laptop?

Perhaps you need to consider a search for the terms 'reset thinkpad T60'

Resetting without the required password or thumbscan means youd wipe the data too.

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck
