I am looking to purchase a T460p and was curious to what the difference is between the SSD's I can select. The drives I am looking at are the 256gb and 240gb. Is there a difference between these two drives apart from storage? The 240gb is 78 and the 256gb is 28.80. Surely there is a reason for this? Here is a link of the drive configurations: http://imgur.com/3IIQksD Thank you in adavance!

I'm having problems with my T460p in Windows 10, when throttling down (due to high power usage or temperature) it will not go back up again until I either suspend/resume or I shut down and restart my computer. 
 
Tried different drivers for the video, currently at the newest from Nvidia, tried removing the Lenovo settings and dependencies drivers as suggested in other threads about similar problems. 
Computer becomes very sluggish (it settles at either 1.5GHz or 1.07GHz according to the task manager, numbers that I have checked is right with the program Speccy. 
 
Any suggestions? I have set the windows power settings to high.

Hi... I am looking to get the T460p because it's lightweight, has 2K screen and Quadcore.  However I've still wondering if I should get the SSD and RAM from Lenovo.  Been reading a bit about the different types of SSD and RAM and also the type of SSDs and RAMs Lenovo uses for the T460p.  It's only making me more confused.  The laptop is for heavy Photoshopping and video editing. The three scenarios would be, do I get:  512gb Sata SSD (US$180) and 32gb 2133 (US$195) from Lenovo  or256gb PCIe SSD (US$115) and 32gb 2133 from Lenovo orCheapest 1T Sata SSD (US$200) and 32gb 2400 (US$150) from Amazon? I'm confused because the 512gb SSD Lenovo uses is similar to the Samsung 850 Evo.And the PCIe is actually Sata Express. Is the real world speed that different?  Or should I save the trouble and get everything from Lenovo? Please advice!  Thanks!

I received my new T460p today to replace my T440p.It as the large battery in the back. The T 44 has two batteries, so I could hotswap. Does the T460p only have the external battery? All programs only show me one 76 Wh battery in the system. Battery life is a bout 2.5 hours with nothing installed. I tried the hotswap and the laptop went dead immediately after i removed the rear battery. Does it not have an internal battery like the 440p? The tech specs are unclear.

I'm curious how many RAM slots are available in the T460p (i7 6820HQ) and how they're used in the various RAM confiugurations available to buy. I'm assuming there are two user-accessible slots, but the configurator does not specify how many of those are used for the various RAM options. For example, if I was to get 8GB of RAM would that be 2x4GB, or 1x8GB with an empty slot? There's no indication. Anyone know the answer?! Also curious if anyone has yet determined whether the empty M2 slot in the T460p can be used for an SSD. I hope so, becauuse without the Ultrabay there's otherwise no option to run two drives in the T460p, which would be a step back from the T440p.

I recently received my T460P but it seems to always "buzz" - like I can feel it vibrating under the palm rest. It seems to be where the HDD is located and sounds like there is fan there going full speed all the time which causes the whole laptop to "vibrate". Its not a lot, but I can feel it distinctly trough the palm rest and can hear it whirring away. I don think this is the HDD seek activity as if I put my eat to that part of the laptop I can hear the read/write heads moving and it sounds very different to this noise.  Is this normal? I was very surprised that such a high-end laptop has this unusual quirk. It's not the cooling fan I can hear as that's all the way over on the other side of the housing and I can clearly tell when that fan is and isnt running. Is there possibly a fan running to cool the HDD all the time? I've never known anything like that before and would be surprised that the drive would run that warm that it needs a fan all the time.  I'm also concerned what this might be doing to battery life and lifespan of the drive if it is the drive spinning at full speed all the time. The machine specs are:i7 6700HQ16GB RAM2GB NVidia 940MX500GB 7200rpm 2.5" SATA3 Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers

Hi, I've tried searching for an answer but can't find one. I'd like to know what total the weight of the T460p would be with the standard 6 cell 47Whr battery. Also how much extra weight would be added by having the 6 cell 72Whr? I've tried adding both configurations to my shopping bag, but can't see anything which indicates the final specification weight. Would be nice information to have available to a potential buyer. Many thanks. Peter

A:Weight of T460p

Good question.  I was wondering the same.  Also curious how far the 72Whr battery sticks out.  Can't seem to find a picture of what it would look like with the larger battery configuration.

So I recently bought a Thinkpad T460p, and I now owned it for 1 month. For the most part, don't have too too many complaints as my previous Thinkpad is a T430s which is pretty decent and I still use it weekly. The question I want to ask though is this: Do any of you T460p owners / users have a hard time / difficulty opening the the lid of the laptop without the entire keyboard side / half of the laptop tilting up into the air with just one hand? I realize that the T460p is different from my T430s, but my 430s can be opened via the mechanical latch that I love and with one hand and the feet grips won't slip like the T460p (without the mechanical latch - its just flat like a mac book or something). Another thing I noticed is that that the feet for the 460p in the front are placed horizonatally which the back two feet are placed vertically. This is the exact opposite in the 430s - vertical in the front and horizontal on the back. Does anyone have a good fix so that the T460p can be more easily opened with one hand and that the feet won't slip so hard?? Thanks, P

Just bought a new UltraDock from Lenovo (to replace the older version that made external speakers buzz loudly when computer was powered off) and am finding it is a bit flakey when my T460p is docked. The problem seems to be the computer does no quite click in properly -- sometimes the display or keyboard will stop working, only to be bought back to life by me pushing down on the computer to re-establish the connection with the dock. Sometimes the display will start to pixelate, only to return to normal when I press down on the machine again.  I can't tell if it's the computer's docking port or the port on the dock itself that is at fault (or both). My T460p does have the extended 72Wh battery -- could that be sticking down slightly too far and impeding the dock connection? Either way, there's no firm "click" that I used to hear in the past when connecting to a dock. More of a faint click that suggests things are not quite connecting fully. I'm also able to lift up the back of the machine and disconnect it from the dock even when it is supposedly locked into the dock using the dock key. Surely this can't be right? Anyone else having such problems? Do I need to send the dock back?

Hello, I currently have a T420P and I have three hard drives in therea) mSata SSD hard drive (boot) b) spindle drive (data) c) SSD drive in the CD ROM slot using the ultrabay adapter I am using the msata ssd for booting purposes. I am interested in purchasing T460p when it comes out and was wondering how many hard drives and what types can be physically installed in the system. I would appreciate it if someone could please advise. There is too much information out there and it's really confusing. Thanks very much.

A:T460p Storage options

T460p will NOT support msata drives. Per the spec sheet, it supports one 2.5" drive (either spindle or SSD).  There's no optical drive bay, thus you won't be able to squeeze in a 2nd 2.5" drive. http://psref.lenovo.com/Product/ThinkPad_T460p

I'm eyeing the T460p. I'm curious how many HDD/SSD's can be installed, 1 or 2? Previous 14" models could have two if you replaced the DVD drive with an ultrabay HDD/SSD or even (I think) the smaller M.2 variant of SSD. In PSREF for T460p I see: Storage: Some: SSD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high
Some: SSD / PCIe NVMe, PCIe 3.0 x 2, 16Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm high
Some: HDD / SATA 6.0Gb/s, 2.5" wide, 7mm or 9.5mm high,
Shock Mounted Hard Drive, Active Protection System ?
Optical: None On the 2nd line, does the "x 2" imply two PCIe SSDs can be installed? Sounds like only 2.5" form factor and not M.2 There's no optical drive. What did they put in it's place?

A:T460p how many (disk) spindles?

Dear Lenovo forum, Is this working as intended? I have my computer set to sleep automatically when I close the lid. For example, I go to bed, close the lid, I wake up open the lid and it prompts me to use the fingerprint scanner or to type in the password manually. So I roll / put my finger that is recognized by  the scanner to try and log in, and 9/10 times it does not work. Instead I have to type in my password. But this defeats the whole purpose of me getting the T460p with the fingerprint scanner. The only way it works is if I start it up from sleep, type in my password, then close the lid again, slide/ roll my finger then it works and recognizes my fingerprint. How do I fix this ?? Thanks, P

I just received a new T460p and I was shocked to see that it uses cheap plastic tabs/clips under the battery to hold the back cover. These are the same kind I have seen on (relatively) cheaper mainstream Lenovo laptops like the Y50-70. To remove the back cover, I used patience and a thin guitar pick and STILL two of the tabs under the battery slowly fell off.  There are other upset users complaining about the same issue on Reddit and other forums. ThinkPads should be built with ease of maintenance and robustness in mind; accessing the disk and ram slots should not risk the user breaking any little piece of the cover. I don't like the idea of plastic tabs at all, but at least they could have been made more robust and that without impacting the design. I feel cheated. The T460p is an expensive machine, but Lenovo seems to be moving away from what made the ThinkPad line popular and I am considering returning the T460p while I still can.

Hey folks, hoping I'm just missing something obvious here and it's not my device: Something that has started to happen frequently on my brand new T460p is driving me nuts. My display (FHD non-touch) turns off, per the power settings, after 5 minutes of inactivity while on battery power. I prefer to keep this setting active as the display will eat up battery pretty quickly. When I click around to wake the display it will come back on but the cursor will not be visible. I can right click, the screen goes black, left click, the screen comes back. It will flicker whenever something is done that would change what's on the screen. I have to force the computer to sleep with the power button then bring it back awake using the power button and everything seems to be fine after that. There is no reason why a fairly expensive laptop that is brand new should be having trouble turning it's display back on. I haven't dropped the laptop, I haven't handled it roughly. I've had it for about 2.5 weeks now and love everything about it, but I really need to get this display issue resolved. I've checked my drivers and the Lenovo tool says my system is up to date, and I keep the dGPU up to date as well. Could it be a problem with the system deconflicting which GPU drives the display? Has anyone else had this problem with their T460-series laptop? I feel like this must be a hardware/software interface issue that can be resolved somehow. Any help or feedback is greatly appreciated.

I bought a T460P recently, with a WQHD display in hoping that I can have a better screen. But I got troubles in the display actually. For some softwares, like Microsoft Word, or Adobe Reader, the text shows with sawtooth. This happens even with some places in the Windows system itself. Moreover, icon become so tiny in some cases. I guess this is because the high resolution, or maybe because of other reasons. Is there anyway I can make the display normal?

Hi, I'm thinking about purchasing a T460p however I have four questions before purchase:- 1. What is a "Software TPM"? I was under the impression a TPM was a piece of hardware? I'm assuming(?) that software TPM means a TPM emulated by the BIOS or something like that, but I'd like a definite confirmation. 2. How hard is it to upgrade the hard-drive/RAM? I would like to install a 1TB SATA3 SSD and upgrade the RAM myself due to the large price difference of the Lenovo upgrade vs just buying it myself. 3. Would upgrading the hard-drive/RAM void my warranty? I'm considering paying the extra 100 for the accidental warranty, but I don't want to have voided it before even using the laptop. I understand the SSD and RAM won't be convered by warranty, but the rest of the device still will be, correct (Keyboard/spills/etc...)? 4. How large of a difference is there between the i7-6700hq and i7-6820hq. From what I can tell from benchmarks, it's a very small difference (2-4%). Can someone explain to me the large price difference? I feel like I'm missing something. Thanks,Nick.

I was able to find them other ways - that's not the issue.

Hi
I would like to upgrade the HD space in my T460p which comes with an 256GB SSD.
I purchased Samsung 950 PRO m.2 SSD.
Upon disassembling the laptop I realized that there is no place to install the NVME hard drive.
A technicial friend suggested I remove the mobile modem that occupies the PCIe slot and install the drive there, however the drive is longer than the modem and there is no way to bolt it onto the motherboard.
Am I missing something? Is there an empty PCIe slot I can use to install the additional storage?
Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, the trackpad and touchpad of my T460p stop working intermittently. The problem seems to occur after the laptop is going into hibernation. When it boots up afterwards, neither the trackpad nor the touchpad or the mouse buttons work, and the device manager shows the Synaptics device having a hardware issue. The problem persists when rebooting the system and even when using a different operation system (e.g. Ubuntu via a Live USB). I tried upgrading the Synaptics drivers (v19.0.19.1), which does not solve the problem though. I also tried different driver versions (e.g. the ones offered on the Lenovo site), without success. I encountered this problem both on Windows 10 Home & Windows 10 Enterprise Edition, as well as various Linux flavors (Ubuntu, Fedora). The only workaround that I found is to shut down the laptop, remove the battery and reboot it afterwards, which seems to reset the faulty state the touchpad is in. I strongly suspect that this is a problem with the firmware of either the mainboard or the Synpatics device itself, which puts it into an invalid state when going into hibernation. For now, I disabled hibernation mode, which avoids the problem but is not ideal of course. Did someone else run into this problem? Any ideas how to permanently fix this? I'm very happy with the T460p otherwise but this problem just drives me crazy as it's impossible to use a laptop without touchpad/trackpad when traveling.

Hey guys, I have purchased the Lenovo T460p and I am thinking of returning it due to a number of issues. I have not yet received it. It is in the final stages of manufacturing.  1. One of the first reviews of the T460p has reported:'A bigger problem is the temperatures of the processor: Even with CPU load-only by Cinebench, it reaches almost 90 C (~194 F) and even up to 93 C (~199 F) in Prime95, which results in a slight clock reduction from 3.1 to 2.9 GHz. In this case, the temperature will level off at around 90 C (~194 F). When we also stress the graphics card as well as the CPU with the tools FurMark and Prime95, we can also see the effect of the TDP limitation at 35 watts. The latter has to suffice for the processor and the graphics card. The full performance is only available during the first 30 seconds, when the chip can consume 45 watts, before the limitation at 35 watts sets in. The temperature climbs to 95 C (~203 F) in this short period. The processor levels off at 2.7 GHz, while the graphics card runs at 900 MHz.'Source: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-T460p-Notebook-Review.160923.0.htmlMy question is has anyone benchmarked this laptop and found a similar result. 2. One of Lenovo Support partners on this forum has reported he is able to use a Transcend 128 GB M.2 2242 SATA SSD in the optional WWAN slot. Has anyone confirmed that this type of storage chip is supported in the T460p (market ready model). &nbs... Read more

A:Concerns and Questions About Lenovo's T460p (2016)

I purchased a T460p earlier this month and I can say that I'm very happy with it (apart from a small issue with the trackpad, which should be solvable through a driver update though). I run Windows 10 Home on it and have a virtual machine running Ubuntu for my development work. I haven't put it through heavy computing loads yet but using it normally doesn't heat up the CPU a lot, and the fan is surprisingly silent as well. Compared to my T430 the palm rest doesn't heat up very much at all. Concerning the GPU it doesn't seem to impact CPU much, I tested the 3D performance by playing Crysis 2, which runs smoothly at 1280 resolution without overheating the system. I use a Transcend 512 GB SSD in the WWAN slot, which works like a charm. The battery performance is as advertised, when in energy-saving mode the power consumption can go down to 7-8 W, which gives you about 6.5 hours with the 45 Wh battery and 10 hours with the 71 Wh model. Personally I'd recommend choosing the 71 Wh battery, as you get an additional 35 % capacity for just 16 ? and the weight is almost identical to the 45 Wh model (and the form factor is also identical). The model 0C52862 batteries (e.g. for T440 20B6, 20B7; T440s 20AQ, 20AR; X240) are compatible with the T460p btw and available cheaply online, so no need to buy an "original" T460p battery, which are offered for much higher prices it seems. I'd also recommend to stick with the basic RAM/HDD configuration (4 GB... Read more

I am new to a ThinkPad with fingerprint reader, but not to ThinkPads. Running Windows 7 64-bit. In Windows I installed the Lenovo Touch Fingerprint Software. I enrolled my fingerprints. Windows: It works well with Windows. Instead of logging in to Windows with password I can use the fingerprint. Next to deleting fingerprint data, only option I have in Settings is "Enable pre-boot authentication". Seems when I have this enabled, that windows will automatically log-in (not asking for password or fingerprint) if I used fingerprint to boot-up the computer during boot-time (enabled via BIOS). Boot/BIOS: I am a bit unsure how exactly this is configured via the BIOS. Only when I enable "boot password required" I will be asked to scan my fingerprint (or type the password). I assume it's meant this way. If boot password is disabled, I am not asked for the fingerprint at all. With boot password enabled, and that's strange to me, it would first ask me to scan the fingerprint and when I did so successfully, it will still require the password as well. I first scan my fingerprint, it gets a green checkmark (= success), then it shows the password icon, and next to it a hand which is crossed out, then a moment later I need to enter the password. Is it meant this way? Or should it be password OR fingerprint? Summary of settings (by choice): In Lenovo Touch Fingerprint Software i disabled "pre-boot authetication". This way I still need to ...

Hello, I have the following issue with my t460p after I've updated the video driver to version 20.19.15.4416  (r07i616w): Pausing a video (i.e. youtube in a browser)  and continuing after some time leads to a BSOD. This happens reproducible  if screen has been turned off by power manager, while video has been paused. steps to reproduce:1. in power manager  set the time to switch off screen to 1 minute2. start playing a youtube video in a browser (in my case google chrome)3. pause video4. wait until screen has been turned off5. continue playing video more informations to BSOD:BCCode: 1BCP1: 0000000077CCBBAABCP2: 0000000000000000BCP3: 000000000000FFFFBCP4: FFFFF8800895BB60OS Version: 6_1_7601Service Pack: 1_0Product: 256_1 this does not happen with video driver  20.19.15.4352 (r07i613w).BIOS is version 2.05. (latest from the lenovo website) Newer drivers downloaded from Intel ( 15.40.22.4424  and 15.40.25.4463) seem to have the same problem. Sometimes system crashes just by using the intel graphics options panel  by selecting video. The picture of the child should be displayed, instead the system crashes. As newer Intel drivers have the same issue, it looks to me that maybe something different coud be triggering this crashes.  Maybe BIOS?  What is the recommended BIOS version to use in a t460p (no Optimus)?Can I safely downgrade the BIOS version to 2.03 or 2.04? Regards...

I have a very annoying problem with my T460p: When suspending the laptop and turning it on again, the trackpad and touchpad devices stop working entirely (no response at all). The problem cannot be fixed by rebooting the machine and can only be resolved by completely powering down the laptop, removing the battery and restarting it afterwards. Symptoms: * During  boot, a message "PS/2 mouse not detected" shows up.* The Windows device manager shows the synaptics touchpad as not functioning.* The problem occurs both under Windows and Linux (Ubuntu 16.04) I am running the latest BIOS version and have updated all drivers on the machine. I have also checked all BIOS settings. Lenovo already replaced the laptop twice, but the problem persists, hence I conclude that it's either a problem in all of the synaptics components or related to something else. I have found many similar bug reports in this forum and elsewhere, not only for the T460p but also other models like the T440 series, hence this is not an isolated case. Please bring this problem to the attention of the support staff, as this is something that is completely unacceptable for a laptop in this price range (especially since everything else is working perfectly). The laptop has the following configuration btw: * i7 6600HQ processor* 20 GB Ram (4 GB on-board + 16 GB extra RAM)* 2 TB HDD + 512 GB SSD via M.2 slot* Otherwise standard configuration Thanks for your help!

Hello Everyone!I just recently bought a Thinkpad T460p to work on CAD softwares. But when I connect an external display to it(HP 24uh) it simply doesn't work. It seems the graphic card NVIDIA GeForce 940MX driver doesn't support it. It works fine with a projector. I used HDMI in both cases. I also updated the graphic card drivers but nothing seems to help.I am using Windows 10 64-bit Education edition. When I go to Control Panel>Display>Adjust Resolution it does shows up the display option but doesn't work. On the other hand when I go to Right click>Display settings and click on detect, it doesn't. But still shows the second display. I also tried with hotkeys for that, doesn't work. I am attaching the appropriate screenshots. Control Panel/Display/Adjust_resolution?Control Panel/Display/Adjust_resolution?Control Panel/Display/Adjust_resolution?Control Panel/Nvidia_Control_Panel?Right_click/Display Settings?Right_click/Display Settings?  I would really appreciate if this problem is fixed. I look forward to get a solution to this problem. Configuration: Intel Core i7-6700HQ, NVIDIA GeForce 940MX-2048 MB, Memory:8192 MB, Storage:512 GB.

Ever since the Windows 10 Anniversay Update, I have had 3 separate BSOD's while working, which isn't fun in a mission critical environment. What the heck is the issue with "igdkmd64.sys" that keeps creating this mess?!?

Just received this unit T460p with the WQHD IPS 2560x1440 and NVIDIA GeForce 940MX, and the color profile seems to be way off. If I open MS Paint and fill a square with 50% Gray, I get what looks like a brownish color. Also, when viewing pictures of people online, they basically look orange. This unit being so new, is this normal?! I am wondering if the panel itself is bad, or just the color profile. Even with the ICC file from NotebookCheck.net (ICC File (X-Rite i1Pro 2)) it's still horrible. I can get close to normal by editting the colors, but this seems ridiculous on such a new and high-end unit. Is this just an issue with Lenovo not doing their homework first, or is it possible the display is no good? I don't want to send it back, just to have them send it back with the same issue, anyone else having issues with theirs? My current HP Elitebook is spot on with its colors, this thing off by a mile.

I have a T460p (Window 10) in an ultradock and am unable to switch between 2nd output speakers (plugged into ultradock headphone port) and internal laptop speakers. The Realtek driver recognizes both "playback devices", but when the computer is docked there is absolutely no way to play any sound through the internal speakers, even if the external speakers are turned off. The only way to get the internal speakers to play is to physically unplug the external speakers from the ultradock, or undock the computer.  Is there any way around this? I don't always want to use my external speakers, especially when on a skype call etc. Tried reinstalling the Realtek driver to no avail. Should I just uninstall it altogether and use the default Windows audio drivers? I used to have a T440p (Windows 8.1) and I was able to switch between internal and external speakers easily when docked (via volume mixer > playback devices).

Hello I want to buy the thinkpad T460p, but I am concerned wether the discrete graphic card and the skylake processor will work on linux. I also use multiple screens at work, so this have to be supported. Currently I have a W540, but the setup is not working good since I cannot disable the Intel graphics card. The laptop I am looking on is named 20FW003PMD Processor: Intel Core i7 (6. Gen) 6820HQ / 2.7 GHz ( 3.6 GHz ) / 8 MB CacheGraphic: NVIDIA GeForce 940MX / Intel HD Graphics 530 - 2 GB The ideally situration would be that the Intel card would be disabled in the bios. Are there any linux users, which can tell me, if I can buy it or have to look after another laptop?
