Decoding the Machine Type and Model ( MTM )number of Thinkpad Laptops

Hi All,

 

Can someone please explain the various codes/sequences used in MTM information of Thinkapd Laptops ?

 

As an example, for if MTM is 20FMA02QIG, 

then Machine Type is 20FM

 

And what does the remaining part 'A02QIG' conveys ?

What all useful information can we have ? Does it includes Country Code/Month of Manufacture etc...

 

Basically, while searching for Compatible Parts for my T460 here: http://support.lenovo.com/in/en/partslookup , The 'Compatibility' section only list the FIRST Four letters of a particular system. Example below:

 It seems  ALL models which start with 20FM and 20FN are compatible with this particular battery: 45N1773. Is this correct ?

 

Does the remaining part ( here 'A02QIG'  ) of full Model number ( 20FMA02QIG ) got NOTHING to do with the Compatibility here ?
