T520 that have NVIDIA GPU, and how to find the precise specifications with just a product ID / type?

I have a T520 type 4246 A32. If I also submit the serial number on the Lenovo website, I can get the specs by clicking on "Machine Info" (see also screenshot below):

 

i5-2520M(2.5GHz) 4GB RAM 500GB 7200rpm HD 15.6in 1366x768 LCD Intel HD Graphics 3000 CDRW/DVDRW Intel 802.11agn wireless Bluetooth 1Gb Ethernet UltraNav Secure Chip Camera 6c Li-Ion Win7 Home Premium 64

I see that no NVIDIA graphics is present.

 

Some T520 are said to have both Intel HD Graphics 3000 + switchable NVIDIA Optimas GPU.

 

Question: How can I display the "Machine Info" for another "type" than 4246 A32, if I don't have a serial number?

 

I'd like to check which ones have NVIDIA Graphics!

 

If one of you have a T520 with NVIDIA, please could you tell me the "Type" and show the "Machine Info" displayed on the Lenovo site?

Hi,

Thank you very much.

Strangely, I don't find the 4246 A32 in this PDF.

Where do you think is it possible to find detailed informations about it?

This confirms I don't have NVIDIA on my T520:

When searching T520 4240-5BG (https://pcsupport.lenovo.com/fr/en/products/laptops-and-netbooks/thinkpad-t-series-laptops/thinkpad-...) we can see

i5-2430M(2.40GHz),4GB RAM,500GB 7200rpm HD,15.6in 1600x900 LCD,1GB NVIDIA N12P-NS1

whereas mine (4246-A32) states:

i5-2520M(2.5GHz) 4GB RAM 500GB 7200rpm HD 15.6in 1366x768 LCD Intel HD Graphics 3000
