Information to help determine the compatible accessories




Lenovo has multiple information resources to help identify compatible accessories for ThinkPad, ThinkCentre, ThinkStation, ThinkServer, IdeaPad and IdeaCentre systems.


Lenovo resources include:

  • Option Compatibility Matrix (OCM)
  • Lenovo Support
  • Personal Systems Reference (PSREF)
  • Lenovo Quick Pick


Option Compatibility Matrix (OCM)

The OCM is updated each month and is available at: 

The OCM has the Option Part Number, Option Name and identifies the compatible system.

For most options that are listed in the OCM, a hyperlink to the Lenovo Support “Overview” document helps describe the option product features and specifications. The OCM also has the worldwide part numbers for: power adapters, keyboards, docking stations and port replicators.


Lenovo Support

Lenovo Support has information for various Lenovo accessories. The Lenovo Support includes: product photos, product features, technical specifications and compatibility information. To help quickly locate information, special web page URLs has been created. The following is a list of the most common special web page URLs:




Lenovo Support has recently added these two special web page URLs:


The OCM has a complete list of the special web page URLs.


Personal Systems Reference (PSREF)

PSREFs are updated each month.

Each PSREF (ThinkPad, ThinkCentre, ThinkStation, ThinkServer, IdeaPad, and IdeaCentre) has an “Accessories” page. The “Accessories” page identifies the compatible accessories for each Lenovo system. The “Accessories” page also lists many of the special web page URLs for Lenovo accessories.


Lenovo Quick Pick

Lenovo recently created a U.S. web-based options configurator. This allows a user to identify the “recommended” accessories or all compatible accessories for ThinkPad, ThinkCentre, ThinkStation, IdeaPad, and IdeaCentre systems. Lenovo Quick Pick is a quick method to determine the compatible batteries, power adapters and other accessories.

Punch Card

Anyone know the current author of the OCM ?  I have found a number of typos and possible errors, plus I have a couple of questions I would like to submit directly.  But there is no contact person in the document.  Feel free to respond privately.
