Review: Lenovo ThinkPad T61


Other than the obvious widescreen difference, the ThinkPad T61 has added protection for its LCD in the form of a metal roll cage.

Internal roll cage protects LCD; 802.11n Wi-Fi for faster wireless throughput; very small AC adapter adds little to overall travel weight; Intel's Active Management Technology provides remote support

New Centrino technology doesn't offer outsized performance gains

Lenovo's 14-inch ThinkPad T61 shaves a few millimeters off the company's more mainstream R-series laptops, but still boasts the same solid ThinkPad DNA along with IT-friendly features by way of Intel's new Centrino Pro platform.
