Lenovo ThinkPad X61s Review

ZaZ

...by Ted LynchThe X61 is Lenovo's Santa Rosa update to their renowned ThinkPad X series of ultraportable laptops.  The X series is synonymous with usability and toughness while on the go.  There are two versions of the ThinkPad X61: the X61 and the X61s.  The notebooks are almost the same, save for the CPUs.  The X61 uses the full power Core 2 Duos while the X61s variant uses the low power versions of the Core 2 Duo.  In general, the X61 will offer a bit better performance while the X61s will have better battery life.  This review will focus on the low power X61s.The ThinkPad X61s (view

spot was big enough to allow for some adjustments.  After having used higher resolution notebooks for quite some time, the XGA resolution on the X61s took some getting used to.  I understand it is small notebook, but something above XGA would be nice.  Perhaps I'm asking too much.CPU & PerformanceWhen you see a notebook with a Low Voltage CPU, you tend to think of slower performance.  This is definitely not the case on the X61s.  The X61s has the Intel Low Voltage Core 2 Duo L7500 CPU.  Like its more power hungry siblings, it has 4MB of L2 cache.  It is part of Intel's new Santa Rosa platform based around the Core 2 Duo CPU.  Its main performance upgrade is the faster 800MHz FSB, which can down clock like the CPU.  The other main enhancement is Intel's new Turbo Memory.  This X61s did not have the Turbo Memory, though it is available on other models.  Despite running at half the power of other Core 2 Duo CPUs, performance at least on the benchmarks, the X61s competed quite well as compared to other laptops with the Core 2 Duo.  With 2GB of memory and a faster hard drive, performance was very good.  During everyday use like Office and Internet, which I suspect the X61s will be used for quite often, it performed as well as other notebook/PC I have used.  I would have no problem using this machine as my main computer.  I ran some audio encoding and Photoshop tests on both my my R60 and the X61s.  The X61s was faster than my R60, though not by a huge margin.BenchmarksSuper PiSuperPi is a tool to measure relative CPU performance.  As you can see the L7500 on the X61s distinguished itself well against other faster Core 2 Duo notebooks.  The X61s is nearly as fast as the X61 which uses the regular Core 2 Duo and runs at 2.0GHz.NotebookTimeThinkPad X61s (1.6GHz Core

image) 3D/PCMark05PCMark05 is a benchmarking software which compares overall system performance.  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.  I opted not to throw up a 3DMark score in a chart since the X61 is using the integrated Intel X3100 graphics card.  The 3DMark score was rather low at  867.  While that will run Aero just fine, you probably won't be doing 3D gaming on it in the near future.  At least until Intel sorts out the driver issues.NotebookPCMark05 ScoreThinkPad X61s (LV 1.6GHz Core 2

help keep the weight down the X61s does not have an optical drive, but one is available via the UltraBase.  It is the Hitachi-LG GSA-U10N 8x DVD+/-R/-RAM drive.  It burns DVDs at 8x and CDs  24x.  A full DVD burn clocked in at about 13 minutes while a CD was around five and a half minutes.  Like the T series, the drive on the UltraBase is a super slim 9.5mm height drive.The Hitachi-LG GSA-U10N next to the Matshita UJ-850 from my R60 (view large image)The bay on the dock is also modular so you can use the modular battery or hard drive if you would like.  I burned a few audio CDs and the recovery discs.  I didn't have any issues with the burned discs.Hard DriveThe X61s came with the Hitachi 100GB 7k100 hard drive.  Boot times were a little slow due to Vista booting slower than XP and all the ThinkVantage tools turning on with the machine.  After discarding the ones I don't use, boot times sped up some, but not as fast as a XP machine.  Performance once inside Windows was good.MemoryThe X61s has two memory slots with a 4GB maximum.  Both are located on the underside of the notebook for easy access....I sincerely hope this is not a slippery slope for Lenovo.  Not getting a lot of crapware when buying a ThinkPad is one of the better reasons to get a ThinkPad.  There wasn't a lot of other software on the machine, other than the usual suspects like Diskeeper and PC-Doctor which come on all ThinkPads. ...
