Re: Need ThinkPad details quickly when away from your desk ?

This post is subject to moderator approval. The free Android app LenovoLook Pro has been updated one last time. Instead of just three ThinkPad databases (US, German and French) it now auto-installs eleven files with most of the Lenovo product line. One file is the FRU to Marketing Cross Reference. E...

Re: Buying a used ThinkPad - some assistance

The free Android app LenovoLook Pro has been enhanced in several ways. When you download & install the app on your phone or tablet, it checks for the presence of one particular database. (The app is a search engine, and without at least one database it would be useless.) The database it checks for i...

If you need a quick reference to the specs on older model systems, you could try a copy of the free app, LenovoLook. It is a search engine for Android devices and some older BlackBerry smart phones.

Lots of us have at one time or another considered buying a used ThinkPad. One problem is that it is not easy to find all the specs without powering it on, and using some of the internal tools to figure out just what it is you are looking at. That may not always be possible. It is also especially nic...
