    Hmm, thats weird, I didnt find anything for the one in mine, apparently didnt look hard enough :D
    Bummer, I wont have one in replacement T410 Im getting soon, forgot about mentioning turbo memory, lets hope that according to Lenovo config lookup 3gb of RAM, twice the storage in form of 320gb HDD and i5 will make up for it lol.

    just get a SSD, the turbo memory was Intel's ploy to get the consumer excited about NAND based storage device, so it was the training wheel before they released their SSD lineup. Now that they have the SSD products, the turbo memory is no longer necessary.

    usually the Thinkpads don't ship with recovery media disks, you can create a set (provided the person whom sold you it did not do so) from start->program->thinkvantage->Create Product Recovery Media.

    thinkvantage is great, thanx :D

    thinking of upgrade to at least 3GB ram. should i replace existing ram with 2x2gb or add an additional 1gb or 2gb ram. on 32bit vista business.

    i suggest you put some money towards Win 7 OS. The T400 runs much better with the Windows 7, and they are less resource hungry. You could also skip to 64 bit OS during the process.

    Yeah, as lead_org said get Win7 64bit and THEN upgrade to 4Gb of RAM :D
    After I used Win7 there is no way Im going back to XP on any of my computers.
    Congrats on your new machine, given that its almost the same as R400 Id say youve gotten one hell of a good frankensteins laptop, theres something in this assymetrical design coming from mad scientists lab :D
    Enjoy!

    This is so true! I love the asymmetric design of my R400 and would miss it in future versions which revert back to the symmetric design!

    One of my favourite ThinkPads could be one with assymetrical LCD and with new keyboard with larger esc/del keys as well as new-bigger touchpad but with the old trackpoint buttons :D
