Great buy for the money!

  • Summary: Well, I'm typing on it right now. I bought this to replace an older laptop running Windows XP. Considering the cost to upgrade, versus the cost of this, no brainer. I also bought a docking station, because I needed the serial port. As an added plus, a PCMCIA card I could never get to work with the previous laptop, worked as soon as I plugged it in. No dislikes so far, although the hard drive is a bit small. That's why I only gave it 4 stars. For the money, can't be beat!

  • Summary: Works great and with speed that is just right. Not to keen on the mouse button part of the unit but that is why they make wireless or usb mice.

  • Excerpt: I received this computer as a graduation gift when I finished high school and couldn't be happier with it.  I use it almost 24/7 a college, and it is fantastic.  Basically, I wanted a strong computer that will last a long time, and this is it.  I have Windows Vista Home Premium and Linux Ubuntu operating systems installed on it.

Best laptop I've ever owned!!!!!

  • Excerpt: Wow.  The Lenovo R61I is, hands-down the best laptop I've had.  It came with 3 GB of RAM and a 160 GB HDD.  After the HDD died, I upgraded to a 500 GB HDD but everything else is great.  The best thing I can say is that it is resilient.  I had an air conditioning unit dump a couple gallons of water on top of this machine and I thought it was a goner.  I took it apart (the manual tells you how) and dried out all the pieces.

DON'T EVER BUY ANYTHING LENOVO

  • Excerpt: I have had this lenova thinkpad R61 laptop pc for 3 years now and I curse it everyday.  I needed a laptop for work, and before purchasing read as much as I could about different brands and read all the reviews.  It came down to a dell and this piece of crap.  I decided on the lenovo because it had a 3 year warranty instead of 1 year like the dell and turned out to be a couple hundred dollars less expensive.  Well I have needed every minute of the warranty.

  • Excerpt: The leveno r6li is the best laptop I have ever had. I enjoy all of the features it came with and all that Ihave available to download. I also like the way the keyboard is set up. The keys are spaced well. It also has a few ways to control the pointer. There is the touch-pad, the center button in the middle of the keys, and of course the mouse. The screen dimension is excellent. It even has a built in light so that you can still type in the dark. The graphics are great.

  • Excerpt: I was a little concerned when IBM announced that it will let the company Lenovo takeover its laptop production. However Lenovo has quickly become one of my favorite brands of computers. I currently own the R 61 and use it for work. This is my go to computer. Even though I have a much more powerful desktop, I often find myself taking this out of the bag to use it. One of my favorite things about this computer it's the fact that it can't be destroyed.

My Thinkpad R61 is a heavy but dependable computer.

  • Excerpt: I bought my Lenovo Thinkpad R61 a few years ago because I wanted quality and dependability.  I got that in spades but it comes at a cost. First off, this computer is heavy.  If you have to lug it around a lot, you will wonder why you didn't get a lighter computer.  Luckily I don't lug mine around a lot - I use it around the house mostly. Battery life is somewhat short, but then again my battery's a few years old now.  When it was new it was decent but not great.
