One month ago I bought "Extreme Laptop (ThinkPad) - Type 20MF " Machine Type Model: 20MFCTO1WW. With following configuration details:


  • Processor : 8th Generation Intel® Core™ i7-8850H vPro 6 Core Processor (2.60GHz, up to 4.30GHz with Turbo Boost, 9MB Cache)
  • Operating System : Windows 10 Pro 64
  • Operating System Language : Windows 10 Pro 64 English
  • Display : 15.6” FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS anti-glare, 300nits
  • Memory : 16 GB DDR4 2666MHz
  • Graphic Card : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti 4GB
  • Camera : IR & 720p HD Camera with microphone
  • Keyboard : Backlit Keyboard - US English
  • Fingerprint Reader : Fingerprint Reader
  • Security Chip : Hardware dTPM
  • First Hard Drive : 512GB Solid State Drive PCIe-NVMe OPAL2.0 M.2

1) But there is something under the brand name which is located under the right side of the keyboard. It might be some kind of screw (figure 1-4). Is it normal? Is there any can that can I remove it?

Also there is a extra port in the right side (thin long one at Figure 4). What is that for?

I have no idea about the lump under the logo.  It looks wrong and "extra".  The long slot is the optional smart card reader.
