Lenovo ThinkPad Z60m Review (pics, specs)


The Lenovo ThinkPad Z60m is a 15.4 widescreen notebook offering budget Intel Celeron processor configurations from $799 or powerful Pentium M 2.0GHz, ATI X600 128MB configurations in the $2,300 price range. The Z60m is built very sturdily and with its...

It's easy for me to recommend the Z60m as I can't find much of anything wrong with it. It basically just boils down to whether you think a 15.4-inch widescreen style laptop fits your needs and if it does, then I say this is a great option to be looking...

Lenovo Thinkpad Z60m


The latest laptop from Lenovo, the Lenovo ThinkPad Z60m ($2,299 direct) is a far cry from the portable matte-black boxes business users are accustomed to. It's a hefty desktop replacement covered in titanium, with a 15.4-inch widescreen and a bulky...

Great performance. Terrific battery life. Titanium cover


Though the widescreen display and titanium cover of the Lenovo ThinkPad Z60m aren't typical of a ThinkPad design, the quality, features—and keyboard—remain pure ThinkPad.

Lenovo ThinkPad Z60m (2GHz)


The ThinkPad Z60m offers a solid combination of speed, battery life, and features in a well designed though not particularly portable case.

Exceptionally nice design ; Long battery life with high-capacity cell ; Wide-aspect display ; Ample security features

Well-stocked configurations are pricey ; No double-layer DVD burner option

Service and Support Lenovo provides a yearlong warranty with the ThinkPad Z60m, which is the standard among consumer laptops (though many business laptops ship with three-year terms). You can choose from several different warranty extension options;...

Does what is expected

Consumer review by: Guest user (



The first thing that struck me was that the keboard would not stay put when opening the display, it is only a small matter but very aggravating. The heat and short battery life was disapointing also.

Keyboard has nice action

Unstable, noisey, slow.
