T550 - specs and video questions

#1 Post by serpico » Thu Nov 01, 2018 1:43 pm

Looking to buy a used T550, and when I asked seller for the machine type, he replied with:
MTM 20cjsovwoo
T poo51a

I tried looking up "20cjsovwoo" on the Lenovo site, and found this page: https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/us/en/prod ... 20cjsovwoo

But it doesn't provide any specs. How can I lookup specs for this particular T550?

What I'm really interested in is native resolution, whether it has discrete (Nvidia or AMD) graphics in addition to onboard Intel and the video ports. I'd like to run 2 monitors (natively, i.e., without USB adapters) in addition to the laptop screen. On my T430, I run 2 external monitors via the mini-DP and VGA ports and a 3rd external via a USB-VGA adapter, for a total of 4 screens. Looking to upgrade to a T550 with the same multiple-display ability.
T430: i5-3320M(2.6GHz), 8GB RAM, 120GB SSD, 14" 1600x900, NVIDIA NVS 5400M 1GB
W510: i7-720QM(1.6GHz), 8GB RAM, 240GB SSD, 15.6" 1600x900, 1GB nVIDIA Quadro FX 880M
T410s: Core i5 2.53GHz, 8GB RAM, 120GB SSD, 14.1" 1440x900

The information you were given, as well as the lenovo page, answers the question.

It's a type 20CJ.

I must be missing something. :?:

That page doesn't provide much info. Under Hardware Diagnostics, it shows scan options, but I don't have the laptop so that doesn't help.

Yes, it's a type 20CJ, but there are many different subtypes with different configurations.

Get the Serial Number, put that in here (without a dash)
and check "By Product info".

Thanks for the link. OK, so we now need serial numbers to look up a configuration?

I'm used to the old method, where the machine type was all you needed to see the specs.
