Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Laptop Review, via lenovo-batteries.com blog
IBM Thinkpad had a solid reputation as a reliable laptop, business-oriented. The X series of ultraportable ThinkPad line, which consists of a single pin design. The ThinkPad X60 is the current incarnation, and our model sports an Intel Core Duo T2400 1.83 GHz, Intel GMA950 graphics and a SATA hard drive 2.5 "(Note:. Is this a model different than the X60, while the light uses low voltage Core Duo L2300 CPU and has no fingerprint reader). It is three pounds lean (depending on configuration) and weighs an impressive claimed battery life is. A station optional docking, second battery or optical drive.

As any ThinkPad owner will confirm, the design is minimalist, a small square, and all black, no highlights or bright, vibrant colors of other models. I prefer this new look for the gray-white plastic on consumers and many businesses low-end laptop. The X60 is not overrated, look at a business meeting or out of small class and very professional.
The X60 has a reading of 12.1 "matte display 1024×768 (XGA), no other options in terms of resolution or brightness. The screen is bright inside and so is not reflected at every level of brightness, but the direct sunlight, in essentially unreadable screen, even at the highest brightness. The poor viewing angles are vertical, horizontal, even if they are acceptable. The screen has no dead pixels and there is little light leakage.
The speakers are always the ultimate test for the design of an ultra-portable designers put the speaker at the last possible point at the bottom in a miniature chamber. If you are deaf in his lap and the sound seems to leave the keyboard. Do not expect much of the sound system and I have what I expected.
The previous notebook had a LG XNote LS50 was with a Pentium M 1.5 GHz My desktop is a Pentium 4 2.66 GHz The X60 blows these two machines of water intended for desktop applications such as Internet, processor text, music and e-mail, not to mention things like virus scanning.
This notebook produces a good amount of heat, especially in the palm rest. The soil is warm, but not much. The X60 keyboard is probably its biggest selling point. The keyboard feels almost as good as the keyboard of thirteen, I’m still at the help desk - rock solid and stable, without hesitation, with a good trip. The fact that no internal optical drive, Lenovo X60 allows for a variety of equipment, including a whole bay have dedicated hard drive for easy removal. The X60 comes with an integrated Intel 3945ABG wireless adapter, it works quite well. My model also includes an IrDA port, although not used. You can build models with Bluetooth and EVDO X60/X60s well, but were not present on this ThinkPad. The X60 comes preloaded with Windows XP Professional SP2 and do not include these records. Instead, Lenovo created a separate partition to restore the computer (although you create recovery discs using a Lenovo utility).
Using the keyboard, the battery is incredible in this team and is a great advantage. I have not had the opportunity to run again, but estimates that it refuses to battery life in Windows 7:45 (in the 8-cell battery) with wireless mode and brightness when the office management applications (something you can actually see happen for the average worker). It is very impressive and is something I see every day by not the rope around (even if the adapter weighs only 0.7 lbs.) The X60 is probably more autonomy, but for those of us who are not required, this amount (which will probably remove a whole day of eight hours, the result of a plug), the battery on the X60 is quite acceptable.
