The ThinkPad T61 is Lenovo’s perceived as deriving high end of R61. Discover this ultra-powerful notebook.

Echoing the same hull as the ThinkPad R61, the T61 features the same look antiquated. The widescreen 14.1-inch footprint results in a fairly large: 33.5 x 23.7 x 3.5 cm. However, our test model has a standard battery of four cells and therefore shows lighter than R61 as a poster on our balance weight of 2.37 pounds.


The machine loaned by Lenovo brings together some very upscale, mostly drawn from the organ bank of the new version of the Intel Centrino platform. In honor where honor, let the processor. This is a Core 2 Duo T7700 clocked at 2.4GHz, the fastest processors at FSB 800MHz. Lenovo combines 2 GB DDR2 RAM. Based on our tests, the computing power and multimedia capabilities of this laptop immediately classify the first place. Another excellent result, the bandwidth of the memory also reached record highs. These components are accompanied with a SATA hard drive with platters rotating at 5,400 rpm a total capacity of 160 GB of storage The unit, supplemented by a DVD Super Multi Double Layer, proved both quick and silent. A shock sensor protects your data from physical damage while a fingerprint reader takes care to deny access where appropriate. The screen of 14.1 inches reaches the comfortable resolution of 1440 x 900 pixels. It has the power of a circuit NVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M 128MB integrated graphics memory. This video chip provides support DirectX 10 and a minimum power consumption. The other configuration is standard with Bluetooth 2.0, Wi-Fi and the last component Intel 802.11n and Gigabit Ethernet. The number of catches is correct with three USB and Firewire even if we still regret the presence of a single video output VGA.

In conclusion

A powerful processor and a battery of low capacity. Two factors leading to insufficient autonomy. Our T61 has confessed his limits after 72 minutes. Certainly not enough for a business user who buys surely a high-capacity lenovo battery. That said, with a sale price probably more than 2,200 euros, this tool seems built for durability. Confident, Lenovo awarded him a guarantee of three years.
