2014 and still a nice laptop !

Lucky777, Amazon
18 June 2014
  • Summary: if you're looking for a good used computer and don't need massive video editing power, this is a well-made and quality machine. internet connections are very good and screen resolution is good too. a matte finish on it, so no annoying glare. also very easy to upgrade ram and hard drives. or, put a solid state drive in here and you will think you have a new machine! excellent speed and cool running.

Blazing Performance but a serious loss of important features

tpaterson, Ebay
6 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this computer to replace a Thinkpad A31 for the purpose of migrating up to Win 7. Both machines are desktop replacements, and, according to a Wikipedia article, both are on the International Space Station in great number. The A31 ATI 7500 graphics card does not meet specs for Win 7, and hence is prematurely disqualified by the end of XP support. The Te61 is a Lenovo-produced variant of the earlier large IBM machines.

  • Summary: Hinge on the screen is loose & some of the keys are not working well. I wish the discription was more accurate. I paid a lot for this CPU & it didn't meet expectations.

  • Summary: I have purchased several laptops, mostly Lenovo and this one was in the best shape of all of them. Amazon listing stated "2GB" memory but it arrived with 4GB. Battery is in great condition as is the screen. Highly recommend this seller.

I miss my T61p

S1500, Amazon
3 June 2013
  • Summary: Disclaimer: This review is more of a reminiscing due to the fact I no longer own one, and these are no longer available. I liberated a T61P from a former employer when I took a business trip to Taiwan and "forgot" to bring it back. So began a 5-year love affair that I would never forget. It was comfortable. It was feature rich. Things just "felt right" with it, like a broken-in pair of trusty work boots. Sometimes it ran hot overnight, but you were still there.

Great COmputer for $2000

Computer guy, Amazon
16 February 2013
  • Summary: This is defiantly one of the best computers I have ever used. I have been using computers for 11 years and this is by far the best. The 2.2ghz core duo CPU gives plenty of processing power and the 2gb of RAM is plenty enough to multitask anything you need. It only takes 5 minutes to boot and just a minute and 20 seconds to load 1 web page. This computer is a beast, and for $2000 you cant go wrong.

Get Intel GPU and avoid Nvidia unless buying for parts as I did. :-)

ditdo1, Ebay
2 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this as an organ donor knowing it had the infamous Nvidia GPU failure, which left the rest of the machine as an excellent parts donor. It's WUXGA display and some other parts are serving me well on another T61. Check the CODE and BUILD DATE on Lenovo service tag stickers then use a search engine and/or the Lenovo site to determine what (should) be inside any Thinkpad you buy. T61s are great machines even for an old design.

very near perfect

rcb "cartaufalous", Amazon
20 October 2012
  • Summary: This is my favorite computer ever. I did have to find an old-school 512-sector drive for it (512e and advanced format drives won't work), and expanding the RAM to 8 GB was more interesting than it should have been. But once it's together, this computer is basically awesome in every way. The screen, the keyboard, the way Linux installs, the snappy response, the support, it's all best ever for me. I'm not buying Dell again, just more Lenovo T61Ps from now on.
