Did my X301 ship without camera?

Hello

According to the datasheet for ThinkPad X301 this model ships with an integrated camera.

My X301 is "Type 4056-CTO S/Nxxxx  09/03 ID:4057W9R" and I do not see any physical camera lens anywhere, not even close to the light (activates with Fn+PgUp) in the upper right corner of the screen. My T430s has a lens at this position and in the BIOS there is an option to enable/disable a camera.

Please tell me whether some production batches of the X301 ship without camera. And if they all do should I expect an option to turn it on/off in the BIOS? I do not see anything in the BIOS that indicates the existence of a camera.

Thank you

Open device manager and you should find if it has a webcamera listed there if it does then it has one if it's not listed then it does not have one.

Jake, there is no "Imaging device", nothing in the group of System devices nor in the group of USB controllers (in case a camera would be a USB device).

So the conclusion must be that there is no integrated camera in my X301?

I wonder what will happen if I download a camera driver from the web and try to install it? May it magically pull a secret camera out from a hidden place?

No it won't work, driver will throw a error saying "Error: required device could not be found" so I'm afraid your model is shipped without webcamera could be a special order depends where you bought it off.

Thank you Jake

It was my job computer for 2 years. When I got a new computer I did get the opportunity to buy the X301 for a dime for private purposes.

Nice little thing, runs rock steady with Win7.

Best
