IBM's ThinkPad 600 is the perfect balance between GREAT MOBILITY and PERFORMANCE. The most notable feature of the ThinkPad 600 is its THINNESS. The thin and light form factor of the Thinkpad 600 gives you substantial computing capabilities wherever you are -- at home, in the office or on-the-go. At only 1.4-inches thin, and weighing less than 2.2 kg or 5.0 pounds(1) with the weight saver bezel, the ThinkPad 600 delivers the processing power and screen size expected in a notebook.
THE LATEST INTEL(R) TECHNOLOGY: Models feature the latest Mobile Pentium(R) II processor at 266MHz(2) or 233MHz and the Pentium 233MHz processor with MMX(TM) technology, plus:
o 512K L2 cache
o Large 3.2 GB(3) or 4.0 GB HDD
o Designed to use the new fast 144-pin, 64-bit SDRAM SO DIMM, 3 V, non-parity memory(4)
o 32 MB SDRAM of memory standard
BEAUTIFUL, BRIGHT DISPLAY CHOICES:
o 13.3-inch (measured diagonally) TFT or 13.0-inch HPA (both with 1024 x 768 resolution)
o 12.1-inch TFT with 800 x 600 resolution
INCREDIBLE SIZE, OPTIMIZED FLEXIBILITY: The new UltraslimBay(TM) allows you to configure the ThinkPad 600 to meet most of your computing needs. The UltraslimBay supports an FDD or a 24X-10X CD-ROM(5) and provides easy, warm swapping of components with minimal down time.
IMPROVEMENTS IN EASE-OF-USE: Featuring improved on-line help, more concise user's manuals, and more intuitive icons on the keyboard, the ThinkPad 600 system is IBM's easiest ThinkPad to start up and operate.
INVESTMENT PROTECTION: The ThinkPad 600 uses existing docking solutions for convenience and productivity.
ROBUST SYSTEM MANAGEABILITY: The ThinkPad 600 complies with:
o The industry standard Desktop Management Interface (DMI)
o Wake on LAN support via the optional SelectaDock III
o Thermal monitoring
o Local and remote asset management and asset security via passwords and locks
o Early detection of a hard drive failure
o WfM (Wired for Management) base line requirements for mobile systems
VERSATILE TRACKPOINT(TM): "Press-to-Select" or "Release-to-Select" features allow tapping of the TrackPoint pointing device to speed icon launches and reduce keystrokes.
(1) Actual weight may vary depending on features, vendor components, or manufacturing process. Weight does not include external diskette drive or CD-ROM drive. Weight includes battery and weight saver bezel.
(2) MHz only measures microprocessor internal clock speed, not application performance. Many factors affect application performance.
(3) GB equals one billion bytes and MB equals one million bytes when referring to hard disk. Capacity available for end-user may be less.
(4) The IBM ThinkPad 600 notebook is also designed to recognize up to 288 MB of addressable memory in the models with the new Mobile Pentium II processors at 266MHz or 233MHz. It is designed to recognize up to 256 MB of addressable memory in the models with the 233MHz Pentium processor with MMX technology. Current available memory options allow memory expansion up to 160 MB using two 64MB SDRAM SO DIMMS in the two available slots for memory expansion. Memory expansion beyond 160 MB will depend on the availability of memory options larger than 64 MB SDRAM SO DIMMS built to IBM ThinkPad specifications. Such availability cannot be guaranteed.
(5) Variable read rate. Actual playback speed will vary and is often less than the maximum possible.

THINKPAD 600 FEATURES
LCD DISPLAY: Depending on the model, the ThinkPad 600 systems come with a 337.8 mm (13.3-inch) (measured diagonally) TFT or a 330.2 mm (13.0-inch) HPA display with 1024 x 768 resolution. Also available is a model with a 307.5 mm (12.1-inch) TFT display with 800 X 600 resolution.
Video Modes -- 600 (2 MB VRAM)
KEYBOARD AND TRACKPOINT WITH ENHANCED FEATURES: The keyboard has the familiar layout of a ThinkPad notebook with a function key capability that allows you to quickly access system functions, such as power management control.
The TrackPoint with enhanced features incorporates the "Press-to-Select" and "Release-to-Select" function of the TrackPoint.
Just tap the TrackPoint to speed icon launches and reduce keystrokes. The new programmable center button enables fast scrolling of Web sites and documents, or fast panning across wide spreadsheets. Or, switch to the innovative magnifying glass feature to enlarge screen views in any application.
PROCESSOR: These systems, depending upon model, have a 233 MHz Pentium processor with MMX technology, or a Mobile Pentium II at 233 MHz or 266 MHz, all have 512 KB of L2 cache, and floating-point decimal, providing exceptional performance.
MEMORY: The ThinkPad 600 systems are designed to use the new fast 144-pin, 64-bit SDRAM SO DIMM, 3 V, non-parity memory. 32 MB of new, fast SDRAM SO DIMM system memory (RAM) is standard. The IBM ThinkPad 600 is also designed to recognize up to 256 MB of addressable memory with the 233 MHz Pentium with MMX technology processor and 288 MB of addressable memory with the Mobile Pentuim II processors at 233 MHz or 266 MHz. Current available memory options allow memory expansion up to 160 MB using two 64MB SDRAM SO DIMMs in the two available slots for memory expansion. Memory expansion beyond 160 MB will depend on the availability of memory options larger than 64 MB SDRAM SO DIMMs that meet ThinkPad 600 specifications. Such availability cannot be guaranteed.
PCMCIA: The Type III slot accommodates either two Type I, two Type II, or one Type III PC card. The slot supports the CardBus adapters(6) PC card and the ZV (Zoomed Video) adapter.
(6) Currently available in DOS, Windows 3.1, and Windows 95.
STORAGE: The customer-removable, customer-installable standard hard drive is 4.0 GB or 3.2 GB standard, depending upon model. This capability enables the customer to easily upgrade to a larger HDD when greater capacity is required. The new 1.44 MB diskette drive (FDD) comes standard and can be plugged directly into the ThinkPad 600 UltraslimBay(R) or attached externally for added flexibility.
AUDIO: The audio capability on the system board and the integrated microphone allow voice annotation and audio capability. The system is equipped with audio in/out jacks for stereo speakers, headphone, or external microphone. The system supports Sound Blaster audio applications.
