Re: Lenovo ThinkPad T61

Energy efficiency
The new ThinkPad T Series has improved energy efficiency by more than 25% over previous T Series, which increases your mobile computing time. Hardware improvements like LCD Backlight Displays and SSD drives use less battery power and create less heat. Switchable graphics let you move to lower quality graphics when you need to maximize mobile computing time. In addition, when there is no activity, the optical disk drive and audio auto switch to a low power state. Coupled with software enhancements such as the new Green Power Scheme, Battery Stretch, and ThinkPad EnergySaver technology, the ThinkPad T Series lets you get the most out of your mobile computing time.

Graphics performance
New switchable graphics, LCD backlit displays, and DisplayPort technology features give you superior graphics performance on your ThinkPad T Series notebook.Get improved battery life and lower energy consumption than discrete graphics systems with ThinkPad T Series' new switchable graphics feature. And don't worry; switchable graphics are easy to use. You can hot-key between Performance and Power Saving graphics modes, or switch via the software user interface. No reboot is required to switch modes, and one unified driver covers both discrete and integrated graphics. Whether you need high-end graphics support or to stretch your computing time, switchable graphics has you covered.

Experience brighter, crisper colors and lower power consumption life with the new LED backlit displays on the ThinkPad T Series. These new displays are bright without sacrificing battery life, with 25% brighter displays and using 2W less power than conventional CCFL displays. These high-resolution displays also contribute to the thin and light design of ThinkPad T Series notebooks, weighing 70 grams lighter than conventional displays. Users who travel frequently will appreciate the wide dimming range of the LED backlit display. This allows you to reduce brightness while still experiencing a crisp, comfortable display in dim environments such as an aircraft cabin. Finally, to protect the environment, our LED backlit displays are mercury-free.

Available on the new ThinkPad T500, the new DisplayPort video port gives you the ability to attach a high-resolution digital DVI monitor using a DisplayPort connector. DisplayPort is a next generation display interface technology used for a broad range of applications – not only for notebooks, but also for monitors, televisions, and projectors.

Wireless performance
Get the best wireless performance with a variety of connectivity choices with the ThinkPad T Series. The new T Series now comes with Mobile Broadband-ready, Ultra-Wideband Bluetooth, and WiMax-ready capability. Mobile Broadband-ready capability lets you connect to a mobile broadband network and switch to a different carrier during the life of the system. Ultra-Wideband lets you clear cable clutter and free up your USB ports by utilizing Certified Wireless USB technology. Take advantage of this technology today using a wireless USB hub, and in the future as wireless USB devices become available. Finally, the new ThinkPad T Series is WiMax-ready so you can take advantage of this emerging long-range wireless broadband technology.

And like all ThinkPad models, T Series notebooks come with convenient Access Connections software to manage your connectivity options as you move from location to location.

Cool and quiet
The third-generation fan and Adaptive Thermal Technology combine to make the new ThinkPad T Series the coolest and quietest T Series ever. New Thermal Design with tuned air flow provides cooler systems and balanced temperatures across the system. As a result, ThinkPad base cover temperatures run lower than any previous generation.

Adaptive Thermal Management automatically adjusts processor and fan speeds to keep a consistently quieter system. This puts the T Series into what we call silent/stealth mode, providing a more pleasant computing experience. Its 3-speed to 4-speed Fan transition mode also makes for improved acoustic levels, lowering its noise level by 3db.

Re: Lenovo ThinkPad T61

The port layout of the T61 has also changed quite a bit, and mostly for the good since we now have a standard FireWire port and optional media-card reader port. I’m not so thrilled with the fact that all of the USB ports are vertically oriented; I find this more awkward than horizontal.

Re: Lenovo ThinkPad T61

Like the Lenovo R61, the T61 features a wide-screen display, which is fast becoming the norm, even in business-minded laptops. The chassis itself has been reinforced with a new internal roll cage, replacing the traditional solid magnesium alloy cover. The slightly concave roll cage, hidden under a composite cover, protects the LCD, while helping Wi-Fi reception, which Lenovo claims can be negatively affected by an old-fashioned full magnesium alloy cover.
