Is my T61 a wide screen or not?

Dumb question, but need to ask as I just ordered a battery for this laptop and the one I ordered IS NOT for a wide screen although EVERY number on the back of the new battery is the same.

 

How can I verify if my Thinkpad T61, 6460-7EU screen is a wide screen or not? I'd have to say it looks more square than it does rectangular. The diaganol measurement is 151/4 inches.

 

Have a very bad feeling about this!  Smiley Sad

 

Thank you

you have the 15.4 inch widescreen which uses a different battery to the 14.1 widescreen T61. But the 15.4 inch widescreen do use the same battery as the 14.1  inch standard aspect ratio model of the T61. 

T7300(2GHz), 1GB RAM, 160GB 5400rpm HD, 15.4in 1680x1050 LCD, 128MB nVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M, CDRW/DVDRW, Intel 802.11agn, Bluetooth, Modem, 1Gb Ethernet, UltraNav, Secure chip, Fingerprint reader, 6c Li-Ion, WinXP Pro

Great!

More confused than before now!!

In your best guess then, does it sound like the battery I ordered will work?

i don't need to guess, as i have a genuine model of this battery with me, and yes it will fit in your machine (provided that they sent the one mentioned and pictured in that link).

Whew!! A MAJOR sigh of relief here!!

With the luck I usually have (bad) and after all the comparing of numbers, e-mailing that seller and having a friend of mine look at that page, I thought it was the correct battery.

Thank you very much for confirming also and doing it so quickly!! Smiley Happy

 

Edit:

How much run time do you get out of one of those batteries?

with your system, i think around 5 hrs with a genuine battery under the battery saver mode and about 2.3 to 3.3 hrs under performance mode.

Cool!!

Thank you very much, again.

Battery should be here tomorrow or Saturday

 

Edit:

Yep,

3 hours just about exactly under the most battery draining settings possible. Well, I don't have brightness turned up quite as high as it can go!
