To distinguish vPro and non-vPro models, you may find the following methods helpful.

Method 1

GPU switch messages

  1. Boot up the notebook, and press the GPU switch button on the upper left corner of the wrist-rest area.
  2. Should you find messages resembling that of the left window (see below), you are on a vPro model. Should you see the right window in the first place, press the GPU switch button a second time after the first re-boot and see if ‘vPro KVM compatible’ appears in the next pop-up window. If not, you are on a non-vPro model.

Method 2

CPU label (on wrist-rest area)

  1. vPro-enabled models are shipped with Intel Core vPro or Xeon CPU labels wherein (Core CPUs only) you can tell from the ‘vPro’ print that you are on a vPro notebook. Xeon CPU label, however, does not contain such ‘vPro’ print.
