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 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 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 T60p


The Lenovo ThinkPad T60p should make quick work of the most demanding business tasks.

Workstation graphics. 4GB of RAM. Fastest Intel Core 2 Duo processor. Vista Business experience.

Very pricey if you choose this configuration. No FireWire port. No memory card readers.
