The ThinkPad T43 features a new version of a ThinkVantage Technology, the enhanced Rescue and Recovery 2.0 with Antidote Delivery Manager. Rescue and Recovery is a set of tools contained in an embedded, pre-boot emergency system, providing one-button relief from a broad range of common PC problems, even if the main operating system already has been corrupted by a worm or virus. Antidote Delivery Manager helps IT departments protect ThinkPad notebooks against viruses and worms by enabling companies to deploy critical updates throughout their enterprise, efficiently and with confidence. It also sets policies so that the PCs retrieve and install those updates quickly, or the PCs can be removed from the network. Rescue and Recovery 2.0 is now available and preloaded on all ThinkPad notebooks and ThinkCentre desktops.
The new ThinkPad T43 is equipped with the new generation of Intel Centrino mobile technology (codenamed Sonoma), which includes new Intel Pentium M Processors with 533MHz front side bus, the new Intel 915 Express chipset family, and Intel PRO/Wireless 2195ABG or 2200BG network connection. Additionally, the T43 supports up to 2GB DDR2 533MHz system memory, up to 80GB hard drive capacity and has one Express Card slot and one PC Card slot.
The ThinkPad T43 also features the new PCI Express architecture that supports forthcoming ExpressCard options.
Combining high-speed performance with robust graphics capability, the T43 is available with Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900, making it the first model of the T series to include an integrated graphics solution. For increased levels of graphics performance, users can choose models with the ATI RADEON X300 or ATI Mobility FireGL V3200 graphics adapters.
At approximately one inch thin and with a travel weight of 4.5 pounds, the T43 is both thin and light, making it the ideal notebook choice for on-the-go business executives.
Featuring high-performance wireless networking with integrated wireless, including Intel 802.11b/g and 802.11a/b/g wireless adapters on select models
