Lenovo ThinkPad Stack Review


Rugged and durable, each part of ThinkPad Stack hints at a future in which we can take what we need anywhere, mixing and matching for the accessory we need at that time.

Lenovo ThinkPad


The ThinkPad X131e from Lenovo fits a variety of lifestyles. Whether you are always on the road for business, looking for a computer for your kid for school or you are an educator looking to upgrade your school's line of computers, this netbook model...

The body's design is strong enough to protect against damage caused by dropping the laptop, and the ThinkPad is great for taking on the road or to class

The standard hard drive is 500GB but upgrading it actually gives you a smaller, 128GB solid-state drive

Lenovo is known for its rugged laptops, and the ThinkPad X131e netbook offers a great combination of portability, design and performance. It is perfect for on-the-go computing.

Lenovo lines up the ThinkPad Stack for modular PC add-ons


As laptops have gotten smaller, features have been stripped out and some capabilities have been diminished, so your super-slim PC may very well have tinny speakers, a too-small hard drive and limited ports.

The Bluetooth speaker will be $89, the power bank will be $49, the wireless access point and 1TB HDD will be sold together for $199, and all the Stack accessories are coming to the US in April. Price and availability information outside the US is not...

Why screw around with something so integral to your computer?

Works perfectly. Very stable and secure. Like most things from IBM/Lenovo, very ergonomic.

More expensive than hard drives from other companies.

Lenovo Thinkpad R61e Notebook


I liked the lenovo Thinkpad R61e so much that I just ordered one for my son. The price is good and along with free shipping. I have never had any problem contacting customer service and they have been very helpful.

Everything has been very good, I especially love the trackpoint and thinklight. I just really like it very much.

I have had some trouble connecting to my wifi. i don't know why as of yet.I haven't talked to Lenovo about it. so it may not be the fault of the computer.

Very good laptop at high speed


Overall the product is good. It would have been nice to have more RAM on it, since VISTA needs it. It being IBM Lenovo costs a little more than other brands with similar configs. Laptop looks slightly on the heavier side.

Processor looks fast I had Vista installed on Sempron which used to be very slow. This one has 1gb ram but still very fast.

The design is not the most stylish I personally do not like the joystick in the middle. Built-in webcam would have been very nice.
