Excerpt: Even though Lenovo’s latest feels like it packs a lot of yesterday’s tech, it’s still a capable machine, at least for business users. The ThinkPad X60 doesn’t truck with such trappings as a touchpad or a widescreen LCD.
Pros: Included X6 Ultrabase adds slim optical drive, four USB ports, and stereo speakers. Available support for all four Wi-Fi standards (a/b/g/n) plus exceptional signal strength with internal EV-DO makes for a wireless powerhouse. LCD is even reasonably legible outdoors.
Cons: Expensive. 4:3 aspect ratio display feels cheesy. Fingertip doesn’t track well on touchscreen and requires substantial and scary pressure. Overloaded with extra buttons, switches, and indicator lights. Would you choose the underside of a notebook, facing downward, as a good place to mount a speak...
Conclusion: While the Lenovo X60 is not sexy or aesthetic in design, it is a powerful and reliable workhorse. The X60 has numerous features that are absolutely ideal for corporate and mobile-management use. The touch screen is awesome. Battery life goes far beyond expected norms.
Pros: Feels fast and nimble; amazing 4GB RAM capacity; excellent battery life; biometric security
Cons: Thick body (with dock); no built-in optical drive; busy keyboard
Summary: For tablet users this small, light tablet PC will offer hours of casual usage away from a power source and will comfortably handle a good range of commonly used software. The standard ThinkPad chassis is rugged and is easy to hold onto.
Pros: ThinkVantage software, rugged design, excellent battery life
Summary: If your business or studies require full functionality from your notebook while away from power and network connections then you can't go wrong with the X60. While it's expensive, it's still competitively priced in its class.
Pros: Extremely portable
Cons: Fairly hefty pricing especially with the added cost of an external optical drive.
Excerpt: Ultra portables are currently the most popular and fastest growing segments in laptops. The term ultra-portable refers to laptops, that have screen sizes of 12.1 inch screens and below. These laptops also due to their small size offer great battery life and a great mobile computing experience.
