    Flip the laptop over and check the bottom for the model number.

    It's already in the specs!
    Oh unless they're not the same !

    Try this:
    System Specs information

    The notebook in the system specs is a Toshiba. The notebook in the posted pictures is an old IBM ThinkPad

    So you cannot turn it on?

    If you can here's another autodetect link (general this time)
    http://www.powerleap.com/downloads/exe/InSPECS.exe

    I guess not working then.

    Are there any other numbers on it?
    Actually can you please supply a photo?

    Go to the manufacturer's web site and see if you can look it up under the serial number. I used to work Dell and they use Service Tags (like a serial number) and it connects you to EVERYTHING!!

    Best,

    You could contact IBM on the S/n
    If the records still exist!

    you can use the TYPE #.

    Okey almcneil(Andy) and kimsland, i went to lenovo forum and show
    some pictures i showed here. They told me its the IBM 500s or so.
    I thank you both for your help. I'm not workin' on this laptop yet, 'til i'm done
    with my Latitude C800;)Infact, I had it upgraded to XP. I got it from ebay
    for cheap, I got the idea on this site, so i got more GB on it too!
    Thank you much and more power on this site!

    Sincerely,
    Joy
