Reviews for the Lenovo Thinkpad T60

70% Lenovo ThinkPad T60 business laptop
Source: PC Advisor English
The Lenovo ThinkPad T60 is not ideal if your idea of good laptop includes media buttons and loud audio. But if the best balance of portability and performance is what you need, it could be the perfect addition to your carry-on gear.

This lightweight business laptop has capacious battery life and ships with Windows Vista Business. A very nice corporate laptop, the Lenovo ThinkPad T60 is ideal for on-the-go executives who chafe at ultraportable limitations. It's big enough to have a 14.1-inch screen and a first-rate keyboard, yet plenty light enough to carry, at 5.7 pounds. Battery life with the nine-cell upgrade included with our $1899 (as of 5/9/07) review unit was superb.

90% Lenovo IBM ThinkPad T60 Widescreen Review
Source: Lenovo Review English
In closing, I believe I made the right choice in purchasing a Lenovo. It has performed beautifully to my standards and surpassed my expectations. After customizing it to my preferences, I believe that this laptop truly is one of the best laptops out there overall. While it may not be appealing to the gaming community, for everything else this laptop has it. I finally have my dream laptop.

Scientist Review of Lenovo ThinkPad T60 Widescreen
Source: Notebookreview.com English
So far the ThinkPad T60 15.4 inch wide screen has been exactly what was called for. It is bulky to carry when compared to my ultra-portable Dell 300M it replaces. However, it is not possible to have a nice big usable screen and perfect potability. For all the power and screen real estate the T60 WS is small. I can easily see this laptop lasting 5 years of heavy use and being retired for performance not reliability issues. The screen, keyboard, and build of this laptop are what make it a good laptop. One of these factors, the screen, is apparently more variable than the others. It should be noted that some people hate the Samsung screen that I do not have. Performance-wise it is exactly what you would expect from a laptop with this hardware: excellent.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad T60 Widescreen
Source: Laptop Logic English
I can unequivocally say that the T60 widescreen kicks some serious ass. I wasn’t sure how I’d feel about the high resolution on a relatively small screen (15.4”) but I was quickly won over. I expected the build quality to be top notch, and I wasn’t disappointed. I was happy to see Lenovo offer the Core 2 Duo T7400 (2.16GHz, 667MHz FSB, 4MB L2 Cache) as my own personal non-widescreen T60 is “only” Core Duo. Oh, and did I mention that there’s a TrackPoint, the most accurate mousing device outside of an actual mouse? Lastly, the biometrics felt solid, and improved over the last ThinkPad I had.

80% Lenovo ThinkPad T60 Widescreen
Source: PC Mag English
Widescreens on business laptops aren't a brand-new development, but they aren't ubiquitous, either. That said, demand for them doesn't appear to be declining. Last year, Lenovo announced the ThinkPad Z series, the Z60t and Z60m, in an effort to put to rest corporate grumbling over the lack of widescreen options. But now that Dell and HP have added widescreens to practically all of their business notebooks, it seems Lenovo has suddenly felt the same urge and gone wide with one of its best-selling laptops. The new ThinkPad T60 Widescreen ($1,999 direct) not only features 15.4 inches of screen space, but is light enough to give even the Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch (Core 2 Duo) a run for its money.

The T60 Widescreen combines everything we loved about the previous T60 model but swaps in a display that's shorter in height than its predecessor but wide enough to let you run two applications side by side (or enjoy a widescreen DVD when you're not crunching numbers). You also get a fast dual-core processor, advanced security, and 802.11n Wi-Fi, plus the ThinkPad's legendary keyboard and durability. Add it all up and you have a killer business notebook.

Lenovo ThinkPad T60 Core 2 Duo Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
In conclusion, the ThinkPad T60 is a great notebook. In every aspect it scores good to great. It has excellent feel and second to none quality. The ThinkPad is one of the most expensive brands, but the Thinkpad’s competitive edge is not based on price, it's all about quality. If you start competing on price, you will lose what you are known for; quality. The T60 is meant for the buyer who wants value, quality, and wants to use it for 3 to 4 years. Though you can find a notebook with similar specs for a couple of hundred dollars less, you will end up spending more by buying a new notebook before a Thinkpad’s life expectancy is done. I suggest investing a little more money now, and have a laptop that will last longer and have a higher value longer.

65% Lenovo ThinkPad T60 (wide-screen)
Source: CNet English
A little more than a year ago, Lenovo shocked the laptop world by announcing the first wide-screen ThinkPads. Apparently the new display was well received, because the latest iteration of the ThinkPad T60, one of the most popular ThinkPad models, now includes the option of a 15.4-inch wide-screen display. We certainly can't complain--we like having more real estate for spreadsheets, movies, and other vital business tasks--and the addition of a Core 2 Duo processor, along with the characteristic ThinkPad construction and business-friendly support features, give this new ThinkPad T60 tremendous appeal. But Lenovo's more consumer-oriented ThinkPad Z61m, which offers the same components and a similar feature set in a slightly thicker and heavier case, nudged ahead of the ThinkPad T60 on some of our performance benchmarks and costs $185 less.

Lenovo ThinkPad T60 Widescreen Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
Lenovo has today announced a refresh to their T60 series notebook that introduces the widescreen form factor as an option. While many manufacturers have been shifting their business notebooks to widescreen, Lenovo will continue to offer the T60 in either a widescreen or standard 4:3 screen ratio format. Following is a review and discussion of the T60 widescreen. While the introduction of the Z-series carried the ThinkPad line into the world of the widescreen format last year, many look upon the current Z1m and Z61t notebooks as being somewhat consumer oriented. The T-series is all business, and it's a sure sign of the times that Lenovo has decided to create an offshoot of this model that evolves into widescreen. Widescreen is just where things are going right now. The widescreen format really does offer a productivity advantage for some people in the work that they do, it's not just about being able to watch movies more favorably.

A tough ThinkPad
Source: Star Techcentral English
Rather than dazzling users with fancy colour schemes, exotic materials and superfluous accessories, the Lenovo ThinkPad T60 is a no-nonsense business notebook that places function over form — it impresses by virtue of being competent in all the things that really matter. With such comprehensive security and safety features, rock-solid construction and general peace of mind, the Lenovo ThinkPad T60 is a bulletproof proposition. Pros: Excellent build quality; useful safety/security features; great battery life from standard battery; well-integrated software package. Cons: Slightly bulky; not cheap.

IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad T60 2623D6U review
Source: notebookforums.com English
I have been using this Thinkpad for about 2 weeks now, and I can say that of all the machines I hav used, this is the best. I wanted a T60P, but i couldn't justify the additional $800 right now, I just need something to travel with. The laptop itself was $1200. I got a 3 year accidental damage warranty for $129 And a worthless "asset tag" which is basically a sticker with my name, for $6 Out the door including tax it was about $1400. I chose the regular screen over the widescreen Z series of Thinkpads because pretty much all the media I have on my HD is for regular screens. The screen is actually pretty good for a "business" notebook, it isn't as sharp as a Truelife or Crystal view, but it is pretty close. All angles are viewable, except from top down.

Lenovo ThinkPad T60 with ATI X1300 Graphics Card Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The Lenovo Thinkpad T60 is the Core Duo successor to the popular T43. The T series is the flagship model in the Thinkpad series, and the T60 hopes to continue its tradition of durability and portability. Altogether, the T60 is a great notebook that will continue the T series' reputation. I would highly recommend it to a student or a professional who needs a notebook that is durable, portable, and does not sacrifice on performance. If you don't need to purchase a notebook until early 2007, I would suggest wait for the next T notebook, which will use Merom CPUs (second generation Core). Otherwise, T60 is certainly one of the best notebooks on the market.

90% Light business notebook with performance to spare
Source: Laptop Mag English
The ThinkPad T-series has long been the preferred choice of business pros, and the Lenovo ThinkPad T60 furthers the appeal for users looking for a thin-and-light notebook. It keeps the best features of T-series past (the unsurpassed keyboard, reasonable weight, and legendary durability) and adds cutting-edge features such as dual-core performance, advanced security, and wireless-broadband connectivity. The configuration we tested (model 2623-D2U, to be precise) slips in at just under $2,000, making it an affordable luxury.

For years, the Lenovo (formerly IBM) ThinkPad T series has been racking up our Editors' Choice awards for business notebooks—and this year is no different. The ThinkPad T60 is Lenovo's newest corporate dream machine. Not only has the addition of the latest Intel Core Duo technology increased the performance monumentally, but Lenovo integrates 3G wireless with Verizon's EV-DO, so now you can get broadband access almost anywhere at any time you want. The T60 comes in the traditional black, which may disappoint those who were anticipating a titanium cover like the one found on the Lenovo ThinkPad Z60m.

The first new iteration of the ThinkPad T series since Lenovo bought the ThinkPad business from IBM, the ThinkPad T60 retains its trademark design but adds in the latest components, including Intel's Core Duo chipset and a handful of new features. Unlike its more consumer-focused thin-and-light counterpart, the wide-screen ThinkPad Z60t, the ThinkPad T60 is built for large-enterprise business customers, incorporating a deep supply of connectivity features but few multimedia extras.

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.

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


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)


T2300: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


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.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.6 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
