IBM ThinkPad ScreenSaver


This resident screensaver informs as well as entertains. Preloaded on all new ThinkPads and available for download at, the screensaver cycles through tutorials on how to use each ThinkPad feature. The animated tutorials appeal to technophobes and should bridge the gap between computer and end user.

  • Tutorials use simple line drawings, a primarily black and white color palette and the signature red associated with the Track Point pointing device.

  • Electronic medium reduces publication costs.
