The general trademark of a manufacturer by which the consumer knows its products. A manufacturer can have multiple brand names. Some manufacturers license their brand names to other producers.
Product family:
The product family is a generic trademark of a brand to indicate a very wide range of products, that can encompass multiple categories. We include product family in the Icecat product title.
Product series:
Product series is a brand's indication, often indicated by round numbers like 3000, that identifies a group of products within one category that are technically very similar. We don't include product serie in the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet to avoid confusion.
Product name:
Product name is a brand's identification of a product, often a model name, but not totally unique as it can include some product variants. Product name is a key part of the Icecat product title on a product data-sheet.
ThinkPad X40
Product code :
The brand's unique identifier for a product. Multiple product codes can be mapped to one mother product data-sheet if the specifications are identical. We map away wrong codes or sometimes logistic variants.
Category :
A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

Marketing text IBM ThinkPad X40

The official marketing text of IBM ThinkPad X40 as supplied by the manufacturer
The IBM ThinkPad X Series is designed for extremely mobile users who spend most of their time working away from their offices. These small and light notebooks are optimized for portability and long battery life but offer the heavyweight performance of a full-size notebook. IBM ThinkPad X Series notebooks provide all-day battery life (up to 11 hours) on select models with system battery plus optional extended life battery, a full size keyboard, the Intel Pentium M processor on select models and a 12.1" XGA TFT display. The ThinkPad X40 also offers the IBM Active Protection System, IBM Powered USB 2.0 Port and a Secure Digital card slot in a 2.7 lb design featuring the smallest footprint in its class. Available on the ThinkPad X40, the integrated motion sensor continuously monitors your notebook. Like an airbag, it can detect sudden changes in motion to help protect your valuable data from some crashes which may occur in everyday notebook accidents. This IBM ThinkVantage Technology provides up to four times greater impact protection than systems without this feature. Select ThinkPad X40 notebook models feature integrated IBM 11a/b/g Wi-Fi wireless technology, allowing you to connect in any Wi-Fi environment. They also feature the IBM UltraConnect antenna built into the display cover for optimal signal reception. This combined design supports IEEE 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g wireless technologies to help maximize coverage and performance. IBM Rescue and Recovery with Rapid Restore is preloaded on all ThinkPad X40 models and is available for download for other X Series models. Accessed by simply pressing a button, this suite of self-recovery tools is designed to help users diagnose issues, get help, and recover their previously saved data, even if the operating system will not boot. ThinkPad notebooks are the only notebook family with the ThinkLight keyboard light. Located on the top edge of the display, this tiny LED illuminates your keyboard to let you work in low-light conditions.

Processor frequency*
The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

Bluetooth is a low-power radio technology developed to replace the cables and wires currently used to link or connect electronic devices such as personal computers, printers, and a wide variety of handheld devices including mobile phones. Because it uses radio-wave connectivity, a Bluetooth-enabled device has a constant, established connection to whatever browser it uses. This saves the user the trouble of logging on to check for emails or news updates, for example.
Third generation of mobile telecommunications technology, 3G finds application in wireless voice telephony, mobile Internet access, fixed wireless Internet access, video calls and mobile TV.
