Review IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad T60


There are different reasons to buy a Mercedes. Some of them are i

valuable materials ; intelligent design ; solid hinges ; writer-friendly keyboard ; trackpoint ; ThinkVantage tools ; few heating ; low noise emissions ; good battery runtimes

possible crunching noises ; display with low resolution and stability of the viewing angles ; crunching hard disk ; mediocre interface equipment

Review Lenovo / IBM Thinkpad T60p UXGA Notebook


Evergreen. Whoever thinks that the launch of the Lenovo Thinkpad ...

High-quality materials (magnesium); Reasonable, elegant design; Robust metal hinges; User-friendly, clearly layout keyboard; User-friendly track point; Concise UXGA display with impressing stability to the vantage point; Very good application and 3D...

Smaller weaknesses regarding pressure resistance of the case; Moderate interface equipment; Partly high surface temperature under load

It's a pity that the FlexView panels slowly disappear from the Thinkpad series and are replaced by the new wide-screen panels, whose stability to the vantage point partly do not meet our expectations

Lenovo Lenovo 3000 N200


With lively performance, a fairly light weight, and several popular features, the Lenovo 3000 N200 would be a good business notebook, but its mediocre battery life won't please frequent travelers.

Big screen ; Comfortable mouse buttons

Tinny-sounding stereo speakers ; Slow-working volume buttons

The Lenovo 3000 N200 is no multimedia machine, but it has a nice keyboard and is comfortably designed.

Lenovo ThinkPad T60p Widescreen


The ThinkPad T60p Widescreen is Lenovo's first wide-screen corporate laptop with workstation graphics. Its 256MB ATI Mobility FireGL V5250 graphics chip is optimized for OpenGL, the programming environment of choice for many big-name game developers...

Great keyboard, Good battery life

Screen could be a lot brighter, Lacks shared card slot

Corporate wide-screen ThinkPad includes workstation graphics.

Lenovo IBM Thinkpad T60 Widescreen Review


Thinkpads. They are the Hummers of business laptops. Only until recently did the Thinkpad name come from IBM. In 2004 Lenovo, one of China's biggest PC makers, took ownership of IBM's "Think" PC division, including the ThinkCenter and ThinkPad...

Extremely sturdy ; Comfortable keyboard ; ThinkLight ; Quiet fan ; Thin and light ; Great screen

Few USB ports ; Small touchpad

Another surprise was the fact that the T60 comes with BOTH an ExpressCard AND a PCMCIA card slot. Granted I do not think I will ever need to use either slot, it is exciting to know that the laptop has support for both expandability options for laptops...

Lenovo ThinkPad T60 Widescreen


A better screen for presenters, plus excellent performance, security, and battery life.

Excellent battery endurance • Rugged design • Small footprint

Uneven screen brightness • Tiny keyboard • Tablet functionality costs more

Lenovo ThinkPad T60 Core 2 Duo Review


The specific Thinkpad purchased was actually a bit more of a notebook than I wanted to pay for. However, I ended up getting quite a deal. Lenovo was having a sale on the T60 and was giving you free upgrades for a 100 GB hard drive and a 9 cell battery....

Quality, Build, Durability ; Legendary Keyboard ; Great battery life ; Cool Stuff: ThinkLight, drain holes, Active Protection System, Security ; Software: good tools, no trial/advertisements (no AOL)

Average screen, could be better ; Wi-Fi is okay, but I don’t really know how you would improve it ; To upgrade RAM you have to take off the wrist rest which has the touch pad and finger print reader (I think they could have made a panel on the bottom...

In conclusion, the ThinkPad T60 is a great notebook. In every aspect it scores good to great. It has excellent feel and second to none quality. The ThinkPad is one of the most expensive brands, but the Thinkpad’s competitive edge is not based on price,...

Lenovo ThinkPad T60 Widescreen Review


The discussion of whether widescreen (16:10 aspect ratio in this case) or standard screen (4:3 aspect ratio) displays are better comes down to personal preference and how you use your notebook. Let's look at some arguments for using each

Although some ThinkPad fans will say a widescreen T60 is a weird mutation and not evolution, a majority of people will welcome the extra choice. While some would like to see a 14.1" widescreen offering, that may come in time if the 15.4" widescreen...

Lenovo T60 and Z60t vs. HP Compaq nx8220 Review (pics, specs)


Business laptops are a bit like men's suits: they are necessary in business; they have to serve from the early morning to the late evening, they differ merely in a number of buttons but never raise any flame war or other emotional discussion like for...

I'm not going to point out the winner of the comparison, simply because the laptops were bought with different business users in mind. Nevertheless, all tested laptops occupy the top shelf of business category and, in my opinion, the two, Z60t and...

Lenovo ThinkPad T60 with ATI X1300 Graphics Card Review (pics, specs)


The Lenovo Thinkpad T60 is the Core Duo successor to the popular T43. The T series is the flagship model in the Thinkpad series, and the T60 hopes to continue its tradition of durability and portability.

Core Duo = multitask. Dedicated graphics in a 14.1" form factor. High resolution screen. Great keyboard. Good battery life. Cool and quiet. Fingerprint security and hard drive protection. Thinkpad quality

Narrow screen viewing angles (non-Flexview). Lacks multimedia ports such as S-Video, card reader, and Firewire. Need to remove palm rest for RAM installation. Loaded with bloatware. Model comes with only 512MB of RAM. Video card is on the low-end, and...

Altogether, the T60 is a great notebook that will continue the T series' reputation. I would highly recommend it to a student or a professional who needs a notebook that is durable, portable, and does not sacrifice on performance. If you don't need to...
