I am often on eBay looking at ThinkPads and have the handy PSREF PDF document (Product Specifi cations Reference
Lenovo® ThinkPad® Notebooks 2005 to 2013 - withdrawn) next to me to decipher the TYPE codes on the laptops listed for sale (if they show it). Sometimes I come across machines that have the normal TYPE code designation but the code combination is not listed in the PSREF document (not including CTO types) for example 7417-TPF.
Is there anyplace else I can find the specs for these laptops?

Sometimes these are models sold overseas (relative to North America ).
Note the radio buttons on the PREF site: "PSREF Book Download [x] US [ ] WE". You might try WE, which I believe is for Western Europe.
Failing that there's always Google. In the case of your example, Family 7417+01 TopSeller ThinkPad T400 yields:

Another result from Google: Lenovo ThinkPad T400 7417TPF 14.1" LCD 16:10 Notebook - 1280 x 800 - Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 Dual-cor...
Note as always, especially with older ThinkPads that have been serviced and/or upgraded, the MTM number on the sticker may not correspond with what's actually inside.

Another option that can sometime help is the search box @ the SUPPORT page (above). Enter the MT-M.
In this case 7417-TPF doesn't produce much of use - just "T400" - but in some cases there will be a macine info drop down with details.
