Summary: Great price on a very usefull laptop. Like the sturdiness and the Zorin OS. Suspect the affordable price may have had something to do with "e" and "down arrow" needing to be cleaned so that it doesn't require a hammer to make those keys work. I have owned several IBMs in the past and still like the "post" much better than a mouse pad. I would make the same purchase, even with difficult keys, again if I needed a utilitarian laptop.
Excerpt: The Lenovo T61 laptop computer is an excellent choice for a "work" computer. The screen is sturdy...not flimsy like other laptops that I've used. I've had this computer for a little over 2 years now & have had absolutely no problems with it. Granted, I really don't use the full potential of the computer as it is just a work computer (i.e. its main use is spreadsheets, wordprocessing, e-mail, & the like).
Excerpt: My lenovo specs: Intel Core 2 duo 3 GB Ram I am a designer who has to use a lot of programs that can be very heavy on the ram. I have used 3d programs along with adobe suite and it runs smoothly. There are however many useless functions which causes the laptop to run and startup slowly. atleast they can be removed. the security fingerprint works well although i have also removed that function.
Excerpt: As with any Lenovo laptop, the T61p was top of the line when it came out. Now it is a little less impressive as its performance pales in comparison with recent models. I have had the same trouble with it that most people do.... the motherboard broke after a few years.. But a few years isn't a bad timeframe for a laptop to last. If you are looking to buy a new laptop, I would not recommend this one anymore. When it came out it was an excellent piece.
Summary: Great reliability, tough, fast, workhorse, but on my third set of NEW hinges (they last about 3-6 months max before they start to become wobbly - bad design, every one of these I've played with has the same crappy hinge problem). I like being able to swap out the memory, hard drive, keyboard easily by yourself. Since Lenovo took these over from IBM, the quality has been going down, but this one is still nicely made (again, except the damn hinges!
Summary: Ein rechenstarkes Gerät mit richtiger Graphikkarte. Ich hatte aber häufig Probleme mit den XP-Treibern und habe schon oft geflucht. Der Rechner bleibt beim Neu-Booten oft hängen und braucht ein paar Minuten Pause... Zudem ist die Festplatte unglaublich langsam. Seit Mitte 2009 sind die Treiber besser und die Festplatte "fühlt sich schneller an". Da es sich um ein Business-Notebook handelt, hält Lenovo einen ordentlichen Graphikkarten-Ausgang leider für unnötig.
