NMU Thinkpad Information

NMU ThinkPad Restore

ThinkPad models change slightly every few months and there are several models of ThinkPads in use at NMU. It's inevitable that not all students will have the same model because new students join the laptop program each semester. Students will never have a ThinkPad that is older than 3 years. Software upgrades are usually available each semester so that students and faculty can keep their ThinkPad operating system and software current.

Installing Other Software
You may choose to install other software packages or reconfigure the ThinkPad. If the ThinkPad becomes unstable because of software modifications made, the computer can be easily restored to the original image using the new System Restore feature in Windows XP (found under Start... All Programs... Accessories... System Tools... menu).
