The power adapter is 65w model, measuring 4. While the sound quality was OK, it was probably good enough for YouTube videos or listening to some tunes if you are not too particular about sound, but if you want to do anything where volume and quality are concerned, a pair of headphones would go a long way. I had to tap the Touchpoint a bit to make it stop. The keyboards on smaller notebooks are often a problem area, not so on the X61s. A custom to order X61s starts with a one year base warranty, but of course Lenovo will let you upgrade for a fee. I am not sure if this is an issue because it is a pre-production model or if something somewhere was not tight. There was some leakage at the bottom of the screen, but only noticeable when the screen was black.

Some convertibles are also represented with that size. If you are a person who needs a lot of mobility or just want a small notebook, the X61s makes a compelling argument.

The keyboard is firm — no sponginess here. It was both a blessing and a curse.

If you were typing for a couple of hours, z61s wrist may start feeling some lejovo from the heat. It made me notice the screen on my R60 was firmer. The screen lacks defined blacks and good contrast. It does get a bit warmer than usual, but nothing to cause concern. It is located on the underside of the notebook. Although it is much smaller than its counterparts, it is every bit as fast.


It is the Atheros card. The right side was fairly warm to the touch, and when I took the laptop apart to find the cause of the heat, I found that both the WiFi and WWAN cards were directly under this area. Since items are packed quite densely in this ultraportable laptop, it is hard to win on all design points. However, the distance decreased gradually.

In general, the X61 will offer a bit better performance while the X61s will have better battery life. This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks.

Unfortunately for audiophiles, the speakers are one of those compromises. Certain pre-configured models like this one do come with a three lenovk warranty. Lenovo Comes Late Source: As such, compromises must be made.

Like its larger brothers of the ThinkPad line, it shares all of the same rugged features, as well as the creature comforts of a full-size keyboard. PCMark05 is a benchmarking software which compares overall system performance.

I even used it after holding a lenofo beverage which many times has fouled up other fingerprint readers I have used. The review unit came with the larger eight cell battery. Alright, first things first.

One concern worth mentioning is the amount of heat that can build up below the palm rest after the computer has been powered up for about an hour. Heck, it has only been a year lenoov we have gotten broadband Internet at a reasonable price. Despite being born to travel, the X61s is going to spend some 6x1s at home or the office. For the ultimate travel machine, I personally would install XP Professional on it for better battery life.


Lenovo ThinkPad X61 Review

While the ThinkVantage tools do have their place, I usually just pick and choose the ones I use. All content posted on TechnologyGuide is granted to TechnologyGuide with electronic publishing rights in perpetuity, as all content posted on this site becomes a part of the community.

It seemed a bit unnecessary since you can do all this leonvo all elsewhere in Windows, but I suppose it is nice to have in one spot. Given the lower resolution of the X61s screen, scrolling is a much more important activity particularly in things like Internet and Office.

Lenovo includes an additional fan with models equipped with the WWAN card, but this may c61s activate if the card is not in use.
