Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad R60

Lenovo ThinkPad R60 14-inch Screen Notebook Review
Source: English
The R60 has been a great choice for me. I get all the things ThinkPads are known for such as great build quality, a fantastic keyboard, and industry leading service and support all while paying less than I would have for the T60. I know since I purchased a few months ago, the cost margin between the T60 and the R60 has lessened, but I still think the R60 offers great value for someone who needs a well built notebook and can't quite afford the goodness of the T60.

The ThinkPad R60, like the R52 it replaces, offers classic ThinkPad features and extremely flexible configurations starting at a budget-conscious $700. However, some of the changes, such as a new, stiff keyboard, may disturb fans of older ThinkPads. Chief among the new features is the option to connect with Verizon's wireless WAN (WWAN) service. While WWAN networks are still slow compared with Wi-Fi networks, they expand wireless connectivity to cell-phone ranges to minimize dead spots. As a result of a new "roll cage," an inflexible magnesium alloy frame added to protect internal parts, the keyboard has a much harder stroke than the popular keyboards on previous ThinkPads do. Neither set of mouse buttons depresses as deeply as before.

Lenovo ThinkPad R60 Review

The R60 is recommended for small business buyers and those in education. I'd highly recommend looking at the T60 if you travel a lot as it is thinner and lighter. But if you're at a desk a lot or just want this for use in the home, the R60 makes more sense than the T60 as you can get equivalent performance and pay a little less. If you have $1,000 and need to buy a notebook for the home, instead of assuming a ThinkPad will be out of your price range you should certainly check out the R60e series (the lower priced end configurations for the R60 are dubbed R60e).

The plain black case of the midsize R series may not elicit excitement, but its broad range of configuration options--with prices starting at $799--provide tremendous flexibility for businesses looking to make the most of their tech dollar. With the ThinkPad R60, Lenovo loaded up the solid R-series case with new parts, such as Intel's newest Core Duo processors, fast 667MHz RAM, and ATI's latest Mobility Radeon graphics chips. The result is a well-made laptop with enough oomph to tackle any basic business task.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)

15.1": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. The 15.1 inch display is used for the 4:3 format and therefore nowadays hardly used and replaced by 15.4 and 15.6 inch formats. The 4:3 format does not have explicitely disadvantages, rather it is a question of taste. When TV-watching on the notebook it is decisive, in which format the current programm is offered. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
