Reviews for the Lenovo Thinkpad Z60m

Ist Lenovo's Widescreen Z60m das erste Multimedia Kraftpaket - Thinkpad?
Source: Mobility Guru English
Das Thinkpad Z60m ist eine gute schnelle Arbeitsmaschine, die weniger durch seine Multimedia-Fähigkeiten beeindruckt als durch sein gutes Gesamt-Paket an Tools. Diese beinhalten verschiedene passive Sicherheits und Komfort-Funktionen, die unter den Namen "Thinkvantage" fallen. Nun, da man einen Widescreen Display von Lenovo kaufen kann - nicht mehr länger eine technische Innovation, sondern eine Pflicht - hat das Unternehmen den Wettbewerb aufgenommen. [übersetzt]

Lenovo ThinkPad Z60m Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
This is a midsize laptop, more of a family sized unit, compared to a thin and super light sports car. Just like you might find airbags all around in your average family car, you can find such features inside this laptop. Starting off with a thick titanium metal LCD screen cover, and really nice stainless steel hinges, this laptop was made for everyday use. It also features such perks as an active g-sensor which it monitors laptop movement down to the slightest tilt, to see if your laptop is in eminent damager of a mid-fall. If it so happens that your laptop does indeed slip from your hands, the sensor trips the IBM active protection software, and safely parks the hard drive heads in the "landing" or shutdown zone. This protects your data from corruption, and gives the added edge to make sure your hard drive might survive the fall.

70% A nicely-priced business system with solid performance and security
Source: Laptop Mag English
Business users on a budget, meet the Lenovo ThinkPad Z60m. For a little more than $1,000, this 6.5-pound mainstream notebook delivers the right mix of performance and security to fit into any corporate expense account. As you might expect, there are some sacrifices to be made in order to hit that low price. The Z60m we reviewed features a 1.4-GHz Celeron M processor, lacks a Bluetooth radio, eschews a DVD burner in favor of a DVD-ROM/CD-RW drive, and uses integrated graphics. Lenovo manages to surprise with some nice amenities, like a 15.4-inch widescreen display, 5,400-rpm 60GB hard drive, tri-mode Wi-Fi adapter, and Gigabit Ethernet. Unlike previous ThinkPads, the Z60m also has a full array of interfaces that includes an ExpressCard/54 slot and a multiformat memory card reader.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon X600: PCI-E version of the Mobility 9700. Was considerable slower than a X700 and replaced by the x1400. There also was a much slower X600 SE version.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.
It is also available as a low voltage version with very small current consumption.


760: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. 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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


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