IBM ThinkPad Users' Group

I thought might as well just start one now to discuss and share knowledge with one another.

Cheers!

Embedded Security Chip

Hi, let me start....

Every thinkpad (at least T40 series) comes with a embedded security chip.

However, when we buy the laptop, the ESC is not installed.

You would need to go to IBM website, go to Support and Download to get the software.

After that, you would need to install them and voala, you get the best security software!

The files you need to download and install is

LPCSETUP, CSSMBUSDRIVERPKG, CSEC510US_003H and PWMGR120US_001D.

i am sorry, do you own a T40? as it doesn't comes wif a floppy builtin.

BT

I bought mine at around $5299, can't remember how much is the additional 512 MB ram.

The IBM Alpha Backpack cost me $186, direct from IBM.

I am now waiting for the IBM direct to get me the desktop keyboard with USB Hub.

I have tried the BT with my nokia 8910. It works well, I think. Cause my TP can talk to my hp, but I do not know what else to do with it....

Overall, I am very very very please with this beast. It rocks! At best of all, I can play game on it!

Don't ever try to play games on MACs (very limited games, and very very expensive!), Portege 2000 (graphics card not really fantastic).
