Solid State Drive
The new ThinkPad T Series and W500 notebooks feature an optional 64 MB solid state drive (SSD). Solid state drives contain no moving parts and are usually a more robust alternative to a standard drive. With no moving parts, SSDs virtually eliminate the risk of mechanical failure. They are silent and deliver faster data transfer rates and boot-up times. In addition, SSDs consume less battery power and lighter than a standard mobile hard drive.

Switchable Graphics
For exceptional graphics performance, the new T Series notebooks support ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 on the T400 and ATI Mobility Radeon 3650 on T500 systems, 256 MB. This new graphics platform allows users to manually switch between discrete and integrated graphics to help maximize battery life. Users working on 3D graphics applications can enjoy up to an extra hour of battery life on a T Series notebook equipped with switchable graphics technology.
