First Impressions: Lenovo's new 14 inch T61 and R61 Thinkpads

May 9, 2007 Several days ago Dave Weinstein had the chance to sit down with several members of Lenovo's product marketing team and take a look at two of the company’s new laptops – the new 14" T61 and R61 Thinkpads. Both units are based upon the newest Intel Santa Rosa technology that's being launched today. While we did get to see a sneak peak of some of what's coming up over the next few months, we did promise to focus on the two devices that are being released today. Dave’s first impressions …  Read More

Lenovo's new ThinkPad Lineup

May 9, 2007 today announced two new ThinkPad notebooks PCs - the ThinkPad T61 14.1-inch widescreen notebook and the ThinkPad R61 14.1-inch widescreen notebook. The new ThinkPads include a new top cover roll cage designed to increase durability, an improved cooling system, enhanced wireless connectivity with Ultra Connect II and a longer battery life through its Battery Stretch control option. The ThinkPad T61 uses the Intel Centrino Pro processor while the R61 14.1-inch widescreen uses the Intel Centrino Duo processor. Lenovo also introduced the Lenovo 3000 N200 15.4-inch widescreen notebook offering top connectivity and graphics capabilities with the latest Intel Centrino Duo processor.  Read More

Field Tested: Lenovo updates the Z series ThinkPad with the Z61t, Z61m, and Z61p

September 10, 2006 Last November, we had a chance to test the new Z60t and Z60m Thinkpads. These devices were the first of Lenovo's 60 series products, and were the first to offer integrated EVDO service from Verizon in the US. They were also the first Thinkpads built to a new set of internal standards for docking station and power supplies that are compatible across the entire 60 generation of products. The Z60 was followed by the T60 and X60 Thinkpads in February, which added Intel's current generation of dual core processors, but unfortunately the Z60 was released too early to get these new gems, and an expected upgrade to the specs of the Z60 didn't materialize when we thought it would. The new Z61t and Z61m laptops refresh their Z60 forbearers, and the Z61p is a new wide screen workstation model based upon the Z61m chassis.  Read More

Left to Right: The T60p, Z60m and Z60t

March 15, 2006 Back in January, we reported on Lenovo's announcement of their T60 and X60 series ThinkPad notebooks. Since then, we've had a chance to test the new devices as well as the new Z60 widescreen models.  Read More

Lenovo debuts new robust self-reliant PCs

February 24, 2006 Lenovo has unveiled the first-ever Lenovo-branded PCs to be offered worldwide, the Lenovo 3000 product family, one of the first truly international PC brands. Researchers, scientists and product design teams from China, Japan and the U.S. combined Lenovo's heritage in enterprise and consumer PC technology to design an optimal computing experience for small businesses. The Lenovo 3000 product line features several new desktop and notebook models with the latest processor technologies in a new silver chassis. The Lenovo 3000 product line features built-in tools designed to help reduce IT expenses in small-business environments where every dollar counts. These tools let small business owners concentrate on their businesses -- rather than their IT -- with virus recovery, simplified network connectivity, and automatic updates.  Read More

Lenovo shows concept PCs behind closed doors

February 7, 2006 A few weeks ago as CES 2006 was drawing to a close, Gizmag's Dave Weinstein and Rob Walker were invited to a closed door meeting with some of Lenovo's top designers. From time to time we get a chance to peek into the future and get a glimpse at the gear we may possibly be using a year (or five) from now, and the preview we received from Lenovo was one of the most promising demonstrations we've seen in a very long time. A large part of Apple's recent string of successes can be attributed to their outstanding industrial design. It's becoming much harder to differentiate product on a strict technology basis (note the CES trend of over-integration). We think we're witnessing a resurgence in the importance of good design. As a result of Lenovo's purchase of IBM's PC division (and that group's continued focus on ID), we think we'll soon see Lenovo established as a premier consumer brand. Unfortunately, since some of the device prototypes demonstrated were top secret, we were told that we could write about them, but couldn't take pictures. Accordingly, though we can show you some pictures, we'll do our best to describe what we've seen and you'll have to fill in the blanks with your imagination.  Read More

Lenovo Thinkpad X60 and T60 double the horsepower

January 6, 2005 Lenovo today introduced two new ThinkPad models that bring a new level of performance and portability to the world’s most recognizable notebook brand. Incorporating a dual-core processor, the ThinkPad X60/X60s and ThinkPad T60 double the performance of previous ThinkPad models, enabling notebooks to operate multiple demanding business applications used previously only on desktops. Designed around Intel’s Napa chipset, the ThinkPad X60/X60s and ThinkPad T60 are thinner and lighter than previous X and T models, while drawing less power than those systems for extended battery life. Dual-core processors improve productivity and multitasking versus previous processors, allowing users to run multiple high-performance applications – such as medical or engineering software, virus scan or system backups – that might otherwise paralyze the PC. The company is also running an on-line survey of potential customers to assess whether to manufacture the new ThinkPads in black or Titanium - so far Titanium is winning.  Read More
