  • Excerpt: When I received the laptop everything in the computer working Ok, it is fast,slim and not heavy ,booting up fast but after the battery was fully charged I started using it without the charger plugged into the laptop and noticed that the juice from the battery was runnig out too quick, The charge lasted just thirty minutes.I would recommend this product only if Lenovo checks the batteries they are sending with the laptop other than that I think it is good for the money I...

  • Summary: Ordered the computer and paid extra to have it in 2-3 days. Still took 4 days and was not reimbursed. Careful if you pay to have early. They ship when they want to.

  • Summary: The computer seems to be working very well. The left side of the base seems to get warm while venting the heat from the computer. The computer was loaded with Windows-7, which had a major update that took a long time to process when the computer shut-down, and then again when it next started-up.

Got my money's worth

john, Amazon

  • 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
21 April 2009
  • 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!

  • Conclusion: la compre usada, le estoy cambiando cosas como pantalla, teclado, dvd, tapa trasera. Despues de eso me parece muy buena maquina. Sencilla para desarmar y hacerle un mantenimiento propio.
  • Pros: excelente armado; prestaciones, conectividad, y portabilidad
  • Cons: no tiene teclado numérico, no tiene webcam,

Rechenstarkes Gerät mit Macken

CHGD, Ciao
27 August 2009
  • Excerpt: 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". Ein Tipp: Mein Laptop ist kürzlich richtig tot gewesen.
  • Pros: Rechenstark, dedizierter Graphikchip, Festplatte leicht zugänglich
  • Cons: XP - Treiber nicht gut, Bootprobleme, Laufzeit nur 2,5 bis 3 Stunden, schlechter VGA - Ausgang

Ein durchschnittliches Notebook mit Qualitäts-und Akkuschwächen

snaggles, Ciao
11 June 2009
  • Excerpt: Nach 18 Monaten täglichen Gebrauch möchte ich über mein Geschäftsnotebook berichten, das Lenovo T61 mit 15,4" TFT (16:9) und einer maximalen Auflösung von 1680x1050 Pixel. Meiner Meinung nach ist das Notebook für die gebotene Qualität und Leistung einfach zu teuer, ich versuche, diese Meinung im Folgenden mit Fakten zu hinterlegen, die mir während meiner täglichen Arbeit mit dem Notebook immer wieder auffallen.
  • Pros: gute Tastatur, die Ausstattung ist gut .
  • Cons: Display zu dunkel, Anschlüsse an den Seiten, Leistung nicht so gut, Akku nicht so gut, 3 USB - Slots
