Some like mine are extremely quiet I almost never hear mine , while others can be more noisy. To help keep the weight down the X61s does not have an optical drive, but one is available via the UltraBase. Like the T series, the drive on the UltraBase is a super slim 9. I personally found sitting at the PC for that amount of time difficult. The left side of the X61s while in docking station view large image. The computer is clunky, the keyboard is cramped Gives you arthritis , the mouse If thats what you want to call it is terrible, and the battery, ooh I could go on and on on that piece of garbage. If you are a person who needs a lot of mobility or just want a small notebook, the X61s makes a compelling argument.

It made my R60 seem like an anvil. The palm rest was also another heat source, with both wireless cards mounted under the right side. I understand it is small notebook, but something above XGA would be nice. I would have no problem using this machine as my main computer. The screen is also matte which makes sense since it will likely be used in office type situations.

Key travel and depth are excellent. The notebooks are almost the same, save for the CPUs. This is definitely not the case on the X61s. WWAN allows you to use the mobile phone network for broadband Internet access. There is one speaker. The Task Manager on the Oenovo view large image.

During my testing, I was only using the WiFi card for internet access. The X61s also has Bluetooth.
I attached the dock for the pictures so you could see what you get with that as well. So, details like letters are bigger.
When I get my next notebook, I might go with something smaller like this X As you can see from results below, the X61s scored well compared to other recent notebooks even though its CPU runs at half the power. Tom’s Guide The Thinkpad thinkpad X61s came in late, but its performance was convincing.

The X61s seems to me to offer the best of both worlds. Testing it was the curse.
In general, the X61 will offer a bit better performance while the X61s will have better battery life. Playing music outside of the dock sounds like headphones with the volume cranked, then when docked it sounded like a boom box.

As the following results show, it provided some very respectable benchmarks. Ok, now the good things about it: I was able to use the free WiFi connection from the local Library which was on the other side of the park and across the street.
