More and more people are using laptops instead of ordinary computers. The reason for that is quite simple, you can take the laptop with you and are not forced to be at one particularly placed.

The Lenovo Thinkpad t61 is a popular laptop that many people choose to buy. If you choose this laptop, you will get a high performing laptop to a very attractive price.

The ThinkPad T61 is a premium product with a durable build; it is geared towards business users or simply those willing to pay a bit more to get something that won’t fall apart after 1-year of use. For those of you that travels a lot or relies on their notebook to earn a livelihood, the build and reliability factor is probably more important than having the latest and greatest components inside.

Still, there are some pros and cons you should be aware of and they are:



  • Internal roll cage protects LCD
  • very small A/C adaptor adds little to overall travel weight
  • Thin and light
  • Comfortable keyboard
  • Large screen resolutions


  • The standard battery has a short endurance
  • The optical driver is loud
  • There is no memory card reader


The ThinkPad T61 is basically as good as it gets when it comes to laptop computers. The performance is excellent and you get a lot for the money.
