Reviews for the Lenovo ThinkPad Z61t

Lenovo ThinkPad Z61t
Source: Bios Magazine English
The ThinkPad Z61 series merges the power and performance of Lenovo’s top systems with the work-life usability of a widescreen display. In addition to building some of the industry’s thinnest and lightest laptops, Lenovo has designed the ThinkPad Z61t to accommodate the wide array of needs business travellers have for their laptop. The system is solidly built with performance that is typical of Centrino Duo laptops, plus it’s certified Windows Vista Capable. It is also built of high quality materials and is lightweight. The level of support built into the system is a major selling point, making it an ideal choice for those wanting a balance between power (graphics users should look elsewhere) and portability. The system’s features are as expected for this price. However, the average price of thin-and-light products with a similar screen size is considerably less.

Lenovo ThinkPad Z61t Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Overall this is a very impressive, feature rich laptop with great build quality. It's a great multimedia laptop fast enough to be a desktop replacement and light enough to carry around when traveling. It's a great compromise between a business and consumer oriented notebook. It's perfect for a business user that demands a well built highly usable notebook and wants a few consumer features. The widescreen is great for spreadsheets and viewing two windows at the same time or for watching movies. Built-in EVDO and fingerprint reader is a plus for business users. Combined with an advanced dock and PCI graphics card to make a true desktop replacement, you can't go wrong.

Comment

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).

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

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)

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 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
