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!

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.

More confused than before now!!
In your best guess then, does it sound like the battery I ordered will work?

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

Thank you very much, again.
Battery should be here tomorrow or Saturday
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!
