X61s ThinkPad from Lenovo

One of our most wanted ultra portables just got a power heighten. Like its precursor, the Lenovo ThinkPad X61s ($2,228 as configured) brag a trustworthy design a top in class keyboard, and sufficient safety features to make the most experienced hacker consider retirement. What’s new is the power, good protocol of Intel’s newest Core 2 Duo Low Voltage processor, which also sends long battery life. Although its shockingly low Wi-Fi score (for 802.11n), normal ratio screen, and need of a built-in optical drive, you’ll be cheerful with this costly undersized performer.
The truth that Lenovo didn’t mess with the design of the X Series is generally an excellent thing. With the integrated 8 cell battery, which hangs off the reverse, the X61s weighs currently 3.3 pounds. The X61s sense a bit after the times. The 12.1-inch Ultra Light present is plenty light (with 180 nits of brightness, compare with 150 for the normal screen), and the dull end does an excellent job cutting down on look angrily. But this panel’s standard aspect ratio could make anybody who’s used to a widescreen feel like they just get launched back a few years. Our design built-in 2GB of RAM, a fast 7,200-rpm hard drive, and both 802.11n and Bluetooth wireless. The correct side of the system houses two USB 2.0 ports, a FireWire port, and the mic and headphone jacks, and on the left side you’ll locate another USB 2.0 port, VGA connector & Ethernet port.
