OK if you know what you're getting

  • Summary: Came with windows 7 pre-installed. Looks like it has a fresh paint job, very clean. Overall, I think we will be happy with it.
  • Pros: It's a T-61, enough said
  • Cons: No camera, not up to par with current processor standards

Got my money's worth

  • 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.

Solid system, but hinges SUCK!

TRJ, Amazon

  • 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!
