Lenovo ThinkPad T61 14.1" (4:3) Review

 

The Lenovo T61 4:3 14.1" notebook is offered with a wide array of options, with processors spanning from the Intel T7100 to the T7800, ram up to 4GB, hard drive up to 200GB, Intel turbo memory, Intel Wireless-N, and either the 128MB nVidia NVS 140M or...

Runs very cool ; Fan doesn't come on as much as previous models ; Excellent performance ; Great keyboard, touchpad, and touchpoint

Screen has limited contrast

The 9-cell battery on the T61 got just over 4 hours and 30 minutes in testing, with screen brightness at 80%, CPU set to adaptive, and with light internet activity. This was a bit less battery life compared to my 15" T60 running XP, but the key...

Lenovo ThinkPad T61p

 

We tested Lenovo's ThinkPad T61 as part of "Green PCs: A First Step," a story on energy-efficient computing. This powerful laptop is Energy Star 4.0 certified and well-designed for business use, but at $2995 (as of 9/12/07), it's expensive compared...

Fast performer

A bit heavy

This early Energy Star 4.0 desktop replacement combines top performance with energy efficiency.

Lenovo ThinkPad T61p Review

 

The ThinkPad T61p comes in two sizes, one being 14.1” and the model being reviewed at 15.4”. The key difference between both these lines, besides screen size, is the memory size of the NVIDIA Quadro FX 570M video card included with the system. You...

Runs much cooler at idle than previous T60 ; Stronger lid construction and a bit stiffer chassis ; Lots of power for anything you can throw at it ; Still shares accessories with the T60 so less items to upgrade

Temps under load are on par with older T60 ; T61p goes through juice at a faster rate than more modest configurations

Off the grid users would be strongly recommended to look into the 9 cell battery for the T61p. With its beefier configuration, it has a tendency to suck down power at a greater rate compared the standard T61 or T60. While my old 15” t60 w/ t7400,...

Lenovo ThinkPad T61p review:

 

Lenovo ThinkPad T61p

High-end components for serious business; internal roll cage protects LCD; 802.11n Wi-Fi for faster wireless throughput.

Baseline warranty lasts only one year.

For business users whose work involves intense data manipulation or high-end graphics, the ThinkPad T61p laptop delivers powerful performance in a portable form.

Lenovo ThinkPad R61

 

A classic ThinkPad, the R61 is full of nice features you don't usually find in a laptop, such as the ThinkLight, an LED that illuminates the keyboard. The R61's 14.1-inch screen and 5.8-pound weight make it an ideal travel companion, too. For a...

Comfortable keyboard

Poor sound

Slim size and light weight make the R61 ideal for taking on the road. Its battery life is unimpressive, however.
