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

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 ThinkPad T60p

 

Straight from the ultra-utilitarian “business computing” masters at Lenovo comes the ThinkPad T60p. The T60p is a full-sized, full-powered mobile workstation designed for serious computing on the go. In Lenovo's own words, this laptop is geared for...

Fast processor; Vista capable; good battery life; biometric security

A little heavy; thick LCD bezel; 802.11n is not standard; no FireWire

The T60p is a very complete package and it is very reliable.

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 R60 14-inch Screen Notebook Review

 

Until recently I owned a 15” screen ThinkPad T42.  I liked it quite a bit, but in the end I decided I wanted something smaller, not just lighter, but physically smaller as well.  To me the 14” notebook is the perfect sized notebook.  I mostly use my...

The memory slots like other ThinkPads are located under the touchpad.  It takes a little bit of extra effort to access them, but it's not a huge job

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 Thinkpad R60 Laptop

 

The ThinkPad R60, like the R52 it replaces, offers classic ThinkPad features and extremely flexible configurations starting at a budget-conscious $700. However, some of the changes, such as a new, stiff keyboard, may disturb fans of older ThinkPads.

Protective roll cage offers sturdiness

Poor audio ; no memory card slots

It might not be vintage ThinkPad across the board, but the R60 overall is a solid choice for mainstream users on a budget
