At least until Intel sorts out the driver issues. The X61s keyboard is in a word — delicious. The bay on the dock is also modular so you can use the modular battery or hard drive if you would like. I found it odd they did not include any disc burning or DVD viewing software since the machine came with the UltraBase. Luckily, there are better free software sppd floating around the Internet. Many users of tabletpcreview. I felt comfortable holding it with one hand by the palm rest area, it feels that sturdy.

It really seems like a handbag sized ThinkPad down to the smallest detail. It is the best one I have used.

It has one main vent to push out the heat located on the left side. I found almost little to no risk of breaking other components during this process, unlike other laptops which are not so user friendly in this area. The right palm rest, which I think is where the WiFi card is located, and the underside of the notebook, were the warmest areas. The sound is somewhat tinny, but what else can be expected on a tablet. The X61s came with Vista Business 32 bit edition. Vertical viewing angles are not that good — quickly inverting colors at the slightest change of angle from being perpendicular to the screen.


The X61s was faster than my R60, c61 not by a huge margin. I had to tap the Touchpoint a bit to make it stop. Sure, ldnovo text is mmouse. Since items are packed quite densely in this ultraportable laptop, it is hard to win on all design points.

The space on the sides of the X61s is obviously limited, mouuse I think Lenovo has done a good job putting on all the ports that a typical user is going to need. It was both a blessing and a curse. ThinkPads are usually at or near the top in support quality.

As you can see the L on the X61s distinguished itself well against other faster Core 2 Duo notebooks. My mousf thought when pulling this the X61s out of the box was — this thing is tiny.

Like its more power hungry siblings, it has 4MB of L2 cache. The ThinkPad X61only comes with a pointing stick, which is a turn off for some including myself. Just expect to run your battery a bit more as full screen brightness is a must outdoors.

My x61 tablet came with the Intel L 1. Again, I had no problems hooking any miuse my Bluetooth devices. I would also like to comment on how quiet the screen latch is. I actually just had to remove the right Shift key on my keyboard because a kernel of rice had fallen behind it, blocking it from being pressed.

Heat output from the laptop is more than you would expect from such a small machine. It is located on the underside of the notebook.

Build quality is 2 nd to none, and it shows with the very precise quiet clicks that each key press gives as feedback. Other items such as the keyboard, wireless cards, and backup battery can be reached by removing a handful of labeled screws on the bottom, and easily popped out.

It is not too hot to use, but you may find yourself with sweaty palms after awhile. Without the ultrabase, it weighs in at just less than four pounds.

This has been my first extended use of Vista. The size and battery life make this one heck of a mobile computer. I had heard of the single speaker on the elnovo, and sub-par music quality. It is obviously a business laptop, but still manages to carry its own unique sense of style.
