  • 14.1-in TFT active matrix display (1024 x 768 resolution)
  • 13.7-in TFT active matrix display (1280 x 1024 resolution)


UNSURPASSED MOBILE MULTIMEDIA

  • Systems come standard with either DVD drive or CD-ROM drive.
  • DVD drive delivers impressive video presentations, high-end training solutions, and playback of DVD movies.


INNOVATIVE MODULAR DESIGN AND ENERGY STAR-COMPLIANT SYSTEM

  • Ultrabay(TM) II accepts diskette drive (FDD), CD-ROM, DVD drive, second HDD, second battery, and ThinkPad Proven(R) options such as the VST ZIP 100, VST SuperDisk (LS120), full-docking solutions with the SelectaBase 770, PC Card Enabler, and SelectaDock.


ADVANCED COMMUNICATIONS

  • An internal programmable advanced communications processor provides modem(4) capability and telephony functions(5). Data can be received at up to 56 Kbps from a compatible service provider and sent at up to 33.6 Kbps.


EXCELLENT SYSTEMS MANAGEMENT AND INVESTMENT PROTECTION

  • Local and remote asset management
  • Desktop Management Interface (DMI) 2.0-compliant
  • IBM Wake on LAN support available via ThinkPad SelectaDock III and interface card


SUPERB ERGONOMICS AND EASE OF USE

  • All this advanced technology in an innovative design and form factor. The full-size keyboard and TrackPoint(R) pointing device make using the system easy. Convenient and easy removal of "hot-swappable" device options (FDD, CD, and DVD). The optional SelectaDock Base makes connection to other devices quick and easy.


Notes:
(1) MHz only measures microprocessor internal clock speed, not application performance. Many factors affect application performance.
(2) Recognizes up to 320 MB of addressable memory with the new Mobile Pentium II processor at 300 MHz. 64 MB or 128 MB of new, fast SDRAM SO DIMM system memory (RAM) is standard, depending on model. Current available memory options allow memory expansion up to 320 MB using two 128 MB SDRAM SO DIMMs in the two user accessible slots for memory expansion. On models with the 13.7-inch display, one of these slots has a 64 MB SDRAM that provides the standard 128 MB of system memory. This 64 MB SDRAM would have to be removed and replaced with a 128 MB SDRAM to achieve the 320 MB maximum.
(3) GB equals one billion bytes and MB equals one million bytes when referring to hard disk. Capacity accessible for end user may be less.
(4) The modems are designed to be capable of receiving data at up to 56 Kbps from a compatible service provider, and transmitting data at up to 33.6 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.

IBM intends to support the International Telecommunications Union ITU-T V.90 56Kbps standard modem protocol on all models of the IBM ThinkPad 770X system. Modem speeds of up to 56 Kbps for data are currently supported. The integrated modem also supports modem technology capable of receiving data at up to 56 Kbps from a compatible service provider, and sending data at up to 33.6 Kbps. Up to 14.4 Kbps for facsimile and other telephony functions.

(5) Depending on homologation by the country.

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. Also featured is a, larger palm-rest area.

The ThinkPad 770X provides Euro Currency support (EMEA models only).

The TrackPoint pointing device with enhanced features incorporates the new "Press-to-Select" and "Release-to-Select" function of the TrackPoint. Just tap the TrackPoint itself 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:
The 300 MHz with AGP Pentium II Mobile processor and 512 KB of L2 cache provide exceptional performance.

MEMORY:
The IBM ThinkPad 770X is designed to recognize up to 320 MB of addressable memory with the new Mobile Pentium II processor at 300 MHz. 64 MB or 128 MB of new, fast SDRAM SO DIMM system memory (RAM) is standard, depending on model. Current available memory options allow memory expansion up to 320 MB using two 128 MB SDRAM SO DIMMs in the two user accessible slots for memory expansion. On models with the 13.7-inch display, one of these slots is currently occupied with a 64 MB SDRAM that provides the standard 128 MB of system memory. This 64 MB SDRAM would have to be removed and replaced with a 128 MB SDRAM to achieve the 320 MB maximum.
