Lenovo T61

 

A common trend these days in the laptop market is to design great-looking products that fall apart easily. Quite a few manufacturers can be held guilty on this front. Laptops tend to have some problem or the other, ranging from faulty hinges to...

The T61 is a mixed bag. On the one hand it offers a strong, reinforced body and good Wi-Fi performance. On the other it suffers from slightly underpowered specifications, a lousy trackpad, and an average screen and battery. Prices for the Lenovo T61...

Lenovo ThinkPad R61

 

The IBM blueprint is still evident in the Lenovo ThinkPad R61, but the addition of a wide-screen display and all the latest Centrino Duo tricks make this a ThinkPad that could woo home users along with its legion of fans among business travelers.

The Lenovo ThinkPad R61 has a wide-screen display; an internal roll cage protects the LCD; 802.11n Wi-Fi; dedicated graphics; very small AC adapter

New Centrino technology doesn't offer outsize performance gains

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

 

Lenovo's ThinkPad T60 model has been widely recognized as one of the best business notebook's ever made, and has consistently won recommendations from business users and media alike. In the off season Lenovo took the T60 to the gym, and now it's back...

Will out-perform most desktops; super high-res display; decent battery life

Largely useless software; 5400rpm hard drive

The T61p is a very capable and powerful notebook that should be on any cubicle jockey or road warrior

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,...
