Blonde Guy


IBM Thinkpad X60 preloaded with eComStation 2.0


This IBM Thinkpad model is powerful, yet at 3.3 pounds, this computer is a light weight portable computer. It is small enough to fit nicely on an airline tray table. IBM Thinkpads are top quality laptop computers. The standard XGA screen is the best in the class.

This laptop computer is configured to boot either Windows XP or eComStation. The eComStation installation provides as complete support as possible on a modern laptop.

The Suntan Special Advantage

Bijoupeep comes with Suntan Special. I use Suntan Special to install the software on all Blonde Guy computers. Suntan Special software can be used to install all updates to the system and its applications and to install additional applications. When newer versions of software are released, Suntan Special can keep your Blonde Guy computer up to date.


I have supplied sufficient RAM to allow many programs to run at once, or support virtual machines.

The Intel GMA 950 graphics is supported by SNAP graphics for accelerated video. An external monitor can be run up to 2048 x 1536 x 16M colors. Wide screen displays are supported. The LCD screen will pan if the resolution is set higher than 1024 x 768.

The computer is set up to connect via ethernet cable or WiFi. Both interfaces have been set up to configure automatically.

The USB 2.0 ports support keyboards, mice, scanners, thumb drives, cameras, MP3 players, external hard drives, floppies and CD Writers.

This computer comes with the Thinkpad Ultrabase X6 dock. The standard DVD/CD-RW drive is installed in the dock. To save weight and size, there is no optical drive on the laptop.

The optional DVD multi-burner can read and write DVD media with an 4.7 GB capacity. Software to create bootable backup DVDs is included. The standard DVD/CD-RW multi-player can read DVD and write recordable CD media. The optional DVD-RW multi-burner can read and write DVD and CD media.

This laptop has a single PC Card slot, which supports OS/2 compatible PC Cards.

The Thinkpad X60 is lightweight and compact. Even plugged into the AC adapter, it consumes only 24 watts. Intel Pentium T2400 CPU consumes less power than earlier Intel CPUs to extend battery life.


There is no eComStation support for the modem, bluetooth or fingerprint reader.

Support for the PC Card slot does not work for CF card readers under eCS.

Under eCS, Bijoupeep has a Blonde Guy temperature control program running in the background to lower the operating temperature. Without this program to control the CPU temperature, the computer would overheat and automatically shut down.

Suspend and Resume do not work under eCS. Instead, when the lid is closed, the machine will do a clean shutdown.

Windows XP

This computer has the Windows XP preload as supplied by IBM. Both Windows XP and the original IBM Rescue and Recovery may be selected from Boot Manager.

The Windows XP installation is the original IBM preload. When you first start Windows, it will run through its introductory screens, allowing you to name the computer and your user account and to select the administrator password.

IBM Rescue and Recovery can be used to maintain the Windows XP installation.
