      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.
      • AC adapter 3pin DC output plug with a "ACDC_ID" signal.
        • Input: 100/240 V ac, 50/60 Hz
        • Output: 14.4 V dc
      • 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.
        • Four cell
        • Eight cell

      • Security Chip (TCPA) on selected models
      • Locking device in the security slot provides physical security.
      • 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 (SVP) provides a higher level of security than the POP. The SVP protects the system functions from being used by unauthorized users, and protects the hardware configuration from unauthorized modification.
      • 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
      • A Power-On Password (POP), a Supervisor Password (SVP) and Hard disk Passwords (HDP) can be stored in the reader module by the TouchChip BIOS eXtension (TBX).
      • When a system boots up, a user is requested to swipe a finger if there are passwords set on the system. When a fingerprint is authenticated, passwords are restored from the reader module and compared with ones stored in the system. If those are valid, a user can boot the system. Otherwise, a user is requested to input passwords.

      Operating system
      The following operating systems are supported on the ThinkPad X61 or X61s systems:
      • Microsoft Windows XP Professional
      • Microsoft Windows Vista Home
      • Microsoft Windows Vista Business (32 and 64 bit)
      • Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate (32 and 64 bit)

      • 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 in the X6 UltraBase
