Reviews for the Lenovo Thinkpad X61t

80% Lenovo ThinkPad X61t ultraportable tablet PC
Source: PC Advisor English
A tidy little 1.9kg unit, the tablet version of Lenovo's ThinkPad X61, the Lenovo ThinkPad X61t ultraportable lacks an integrated optical drive, but it has a great design, long battery life, and an easy-on, easy-off docking station. At £1,399 inc VAT (as of September 27, 2007), however, the Lenovo ThinkPad X61t ultraportable tablet PC is expensive. The only major change to this upgraded Lenovo ThinkPad X series modelhttp://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/index.cfm?ReviewID=793 is a processor update. Our review Lenovo ThinkPad X61t, equipped with a low-voltage 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo L7500 chip and 2GB of DDR2-667 SDRAM, turned in a good WorldBench 6 Beta 2 score of 64. Battery life with the eight-cell battery that our test unit came with was fantastic at 5 hours and 2 minutes. (Other X-series models come with four-cell batteries.)

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

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 Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


L7500: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.8 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.
