Well certainly lenovo knows what it is:

So L7500 1.6Ghz CPU, 1GB ram, 80GB HD 5400rpm, 12.1" 1400x1050 LCD, intel
X3100 graphics, intel 802.1agn (with n disabled) wifi, bluetooth, modem,
Gbit ethernet, security chip, fingerpint reader, 8 cell Li-Ion battery,
Windows Vista Business.

Does that seem about right?

My SL500 has a -CTO code at the end that explicitly means 'configure
to order' so it doesn't have the option of that level of detail.
The xxxx- at the start simply means SL500 as far as I remember.

Mine (2746CTO) simply says 'ThinkPad SL500 Configure-To-Order system'.
