AC Adapter
  • AC adapter: This ac-to-dc converter supplies the necessary power to the computer. The ac adapter also charges the battery pack when it is installed in the computer.
  • Universal AC adapter (90 W):
    • Input is 100/240 V ac, 1.7/0.6 A, 50/60 Hz
    • Output is 20 V dc, 4.5 A
  • The battery pack is an internal power source to the computer when the ac adapter is not available. The battery pack is rechargeable and is charged using the ac adapter with the system.
  • You can manage the battery power by using the Battery MaxiMiser and Power Management Features utility.
  • A different Li-Ion battery pack fits into the Ultrabay Slim so that two batteries can be installed to increase battery operating time.
  • A six or nine cell Li-Ion battery pack is shipped with the system.
  • Li-Ion battery pack:
    • Six-cell: 10.8 V, 56.15 Wh
    • Nine-cell: 10.8 V, 84.24 Wh
  • Approximate operation and charging hours are:
    • Power off/suspend charging(*1):
      • Six-cell battery: 3.5 hours
      • Nine-cell battery: 4.3 hours
    • Charging during operation(*1):
      • Six-cell battery: 3.5 to 6.0 hours
      • Nine-cell battery: 4.3 hr to 6.0 hours
    • Battery operation (Intel Pentium models)(*1):
      • Six-cell battery: Up to 4.0 hours
      • Nine-cell battery: Up to 6.0 hours


  • (*1) Recharge time also varies.
  • These model numbers achieved eTesting Labs, Inc.'s BatteryMark 4.0.1 or the Ziff Davis Media Inc.'s Business Winstone 2002 BatteryMark Version 1.0 Battery Rundown Time of at least the times shown above. This test was performed without independent verification by VeriTest testing division of Lionbridge Technologies, Inc. ("VeriTest") nor Ziff Davis Media Inc.; neither Ziff Davis Media Inc. nor VeriTest makes any representations or warranties as to these test results. A description of the environment under which the test was performed is available at: www.ibm.com/pc/ww/thinkpad/batterylife.html. Battery life (and recharge times) will vary based on many factors including screen brightness, applications, features, power management, battery conditioning and other customer preferences.


  • Security Chip on selected models
  • Fingerprint reader on selected models, offers users a convenient solution, authenticate at system startup and log on to Windows with a swipe of your finger.
  • Optional locking device in the security slot provides physical security.
  • The ThinkPad Embedded Security Subsystem provides for authentication and encryption of data communications.
  • A Power-on password (POP) protects the system from unauthorized use. If a POP is set, the password prompt appears:
    • Each time the system is turned on
  • When the system is returned to normal operation from suspend mode
  • A Supervisor Password provides a higher level of security than the POP. The Supervisor Password protects the system functions from being used by unauthorized users,and protects the hardware configuration from unauthorized modification. The Supervisor Password prompt appears:
    • When the BIOS setup screen is accessed.
  • A Hard Drive Password (HDP) protects hard drive data from unauthorized users. Once HDP is set, data on the hard drive cannot be accessed without the correct HDP. Because the HDP is stored in the hard drive, the data remains protected even if the hard drive is removed to another system. The HDP password prompt appears each time the system is turned on


Operating system
The following operating systems are supported on the ThinkPad Z60t system:
  • Windows XP Professional (no service pack, SP1, SP1a, SP2) with USB 2.0 support
  • Windows XP Home (no service pack, SP1, SP1a, SP2) with USB 2.0 sup- port
  • Windows 2000 Professional (no service pack, SP1, SP2, SP3, SP4) with USB 2.0 support


  • Previous versions of these operating systems are not supported.
  • Operating systems other than those preinstalled on the systems may not provide full-feature functionality


Optical drive
  • CD-ROM Ultrabay enhanced drive
  • DVD-ROM Ultrabay enhanced drive
  • 24x24x24x/8x CDRW/DVD Ultrabay enhanced drive
  • 8x max Multi-Recorder Ultrabay enhanced drive
Floppy drive
  • Only available using USB or Docking solution
Hard drive features
  • Standard 40GB, 60GB, 80GB, or 100GB hard drive sizes
    • 5400 rpm hard drive speed
  • Selected models with 100GB 7200rpm hard drives
  • Supports one additional hard drive which can be used concurrently to offer expanded storage in the Ultrabay Slim
  • Although you can upgrade the hard drive, it is not designed to be removed and reinserted on a regular basis. Repeated and frequent removal, for purposes other than to upgrade for greater capacity, can cause damage to the system. The Ultrabay Slim hard drive adapter is designed to provide this flexibility with a second hard drive in the Ultrabay Slim.
  • The Hard Drive Active Protection system protects your hard drive when the shock sensor inside your ThinkPad computer detects a situation that could potentially damage the hard drive.
