Lenovo ThinkPad Z60 review

 

ThinkPad Z60m

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.

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