Same chipset/CPU as T60/R60/X60. Features gigantic heatsink, T40 style keyboard, floppy disk drive, and no touchpad.
I think someone in the G series subforum compared it with the T60 as you say.

Re: FA: Rare Japanese IBM Thinkpad G50 on eBay

I know about the S , limited to Japan, but not about the G. What were the specs/particularities ? Sorry Mazzinia for answering late. They came with Celeron M or Core Duo processor, Intel GMA 950 graphics and I think everything else was the same as in the G40 and G41, I think I read somewhere that i...

Re: FA: Rare Japanese IBM Thinkpad G50 on eBay

I took a look on Yahoo Auctions, obviously in Japan, and saw only one IBM G50, not sure if one equals to "so many" for you. So you can "go flip some Japanese Thinkpads" or flip whatever you want. I'm not talking about the Lenovo G50-30, G50-45, G50-80, etc, I'm talking about the last in the IBM G se...

Re: How can I make a bootable BIOS CD update out of a bootable BIOS Floppy disk

I have more than 100 G40s and G41s so I would prefer to use CDs to update their BIOSes than having to use floppy disks that do not know how long they'll last, that's why I want to transfer the contents of the bootable floppy disk BIOS update application to a bootable CDs or an iso I can burn to a CD...

Re: How can I make a bootable BIOS CD update out of a bootable BIOS Floppy disk

Once I did something like that but the cd didn't boot or it booted but didn't load the BIOS update application, sorry but I tried some variants a couple years ago but gave up and now don't remember exactly all I tried.
How do I do what you are saying?. Thanks in advance for any help.
