Be careful: "brand" != "manufacturer".
The T60 was entirely designed and produced by Lenovo, AFAIK. When they
bought the Thinkpad line, they got an agreement that allowed them to use
the IBM brand for a few years. Over the last few years, they've been
transitioning away from the IBM brand to the Lenovo and Thinkpad brands
(the same machines can sometimes be delivered with a Lenovo sticker or
a Thinkpad sticker or ...).
