Reviews for the Lenovo Thinkpad Z60t

74% This 14-inch unit would benefit from features found on its larger sibling notebook.

The Lenovo Z60t presents an odd compromise for notebook buyers looking at wide-screen models. This 14-inch wide-screen unit has a smaller display, lower resolution, and weaker graphics compared with its larger, heavier sibling, the 15.4-inch Z60m--yet at $1999, it's safe to say that the 14-inch model costs a few hundred dollars more than a comparable 15.4-inch model. True, many notebooks cost more the smaller they get, but not when the difference is this minimal. Though you can get the Z60t in ThinkPad-traditional basic black, some models come with a titanium-toned lid. (You have to pick a configuration that sports this type of lid, however.

Superb build quality is backed up by award-winning support, while ThinkVantage technology also boosts its appeal. However, you're paying over the odds in terms of spec-per-buck. The ThinkPad phenomenon just keeps on going. Under the IBM flag, it won Big Blue seven out of eight notebook Reliability & Service awards, and this year under Lenovo's ownership it takes the honours once again. Crucial to this award is build quality and keeping customers happy, and both of these principles shine through once again in the Z60t. If anything, new ThinkPad owners should be even happier, as a huge amount of thought has gone into making the Z60t-owning experience a pleasurable one. While most notebooks just include a standard installation of Windows and a generic manual in the box, here you get a manual specific to your model and bespoke software.

Lenovo says the T at the end of the ThinkPad Z60T's name stands for "travel-friendly" (there's a somewhat larger and heavier Z60M model as well). While there are plenty of notebooks that are smaller and lighter than even the Z60T, the Lenovo is quite compact for the features it provides -- 9 by 13.1 by 1.2 inches, just a tick under 5 pounds. We tested a $2,299 configuration with a Pentium M 760 (2.0GHz) processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 100GB hard disk plus DVD burner. (Prices start at $1,099 for a stripper with Celeron M 360 CPU, 256MB of memory, a 40GB hard disk, and a DVD-ROM/CD-RW combo drive.) Our test unit also came with a 7-cell lithium-ion battery that Lenovo rates for up to four hours of unplugged productivity; we got slightly more than three hours out of it.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 900: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip with shared memory on Mobile Intel 915GM chipset. It is the predecessor of Graphics Media Accelerator 950. The performance can be compared with the Mobile Radeon 9000 (with a 64 bit memory bus).

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

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.


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


14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. 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.


2.1 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

79.6%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
