Old, Yet new Device

A. Nathaniel Wallace, Jr., Amazon
24 June 2014
  • Summary: My Godmother gave this Lenovo T-61 to me back in 2007. As I already owned an IBM ThinkPad R-31 model, the T-61 sat boxed in my living room for over six years. But in January 2014 the motherboard of the R-31 died on me and I had no choice but to unbox the T-61 for use.

Got my money's worth

john, Amazon
24 May 2014
  • 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.

how lame

N. Murphy, Amazon

  • Summary: I just checked. You can get a 2.5 " 250 gig drive for under 40 dollars. And you are going to throw the laptop away because of that???

This was a Refurb.

Frank N., Newegg
2 March 2013
  • Summary: I bought an SSD to use on this machine to save power so that I can use the laptop on battery power all night long. HDD swap was easy and the SSD rocks in this thing. Once I take the optical drive out I should be able to get 4 hours pew battery.
  • Pros: First of all, Win7 works great, screen is bright and clear, no dings or nicks, and all the USB ports work. I bought this to have a light low-power laptop to use with a telescope so these were the main things that had to work right.
  • Cons: The battery arrived dead, not a big deal as I bought tow extra batteries for $17 each. The speakers do not work either, again I am not using this for A/V work or anything so that was not a deal breaker.

Is as adverised

Mitchell B., Newegg
10 December 2012
  • Summary: They didn't do it right, doesn't mean you can't.
  • Pros: It's a great machine as long as you install the latest drivers...and software that you want. This laptop is a T-61/7661/WFK. Ignore the pics of the spec labels. It's not the same machine. Check it out at Levovo.com... 14.1" screen, no bluetooth, GLAN, Wireless G, Core Duo etc...No card reader.......
  • Cons: Time consuming to configure properly.
