Pros Well built, runs very well, simple to use
Cons price, occasional software glitches
Summary The T60 is a great machine. Contrary to at least one review on here, the machine is solidly built, even moreso than the T43, with the bottomside cage being quite nice (the support is also being done by the same people who did IBM's). It also runs very cool and quiet, with the fan making minimal noise and only rarely turning on. The price is pretty hefty, though I got an educaitonal discount. The only minus is some occasional glitches from some of the Thinkvantage software, which could stand to be tuned up.
Pros Fast, Keybord rocks, quiet
Cons nothing so far
Summary I read these mixed reviews after ordering my T60. As an upgrade from my R51, it's a huge improvement in speed, weight, and keyboard feel. I also have a T43 and it's pretty much about the same expect the T60 is alot faster (dual core vs. Pentium M). I got the 14 inch low res display b/c I once owned a 15 inch high res and hated it. I have a Mac with a 23" monitor that I use when I want monitor space. If your looking for a great laptop, I'd get another one in a heartbeat!
"Terrible support"on by DigitalC2
Pros None - It doesn't work
Cons It doesn't work, no support
Summary I had my T60 for one month when the display went dead. I had paid for next biz day premium support. Most of the details are below, but suffice it to say that 6 days later I have not seen a single support person and my laptop is still not functioning. Their support is a farce. They keep telling me "no one is available" and somehow that is suppose to make it OK. My guess is that the T60 is causing so many support calls they don't have enought people to keep us. Key facts...
- The support people have told me flat out that they do not keep any parts in stock. If your problem requires a part, you are looking at least one day for shipping. I am glad I didn't pay for premium same day support.
- I was promised a support person would be here today at noon (again this is 6 days after my initial call). I called and they promised that the part was in my town and that the support person would be here at 8pm. I cancelled a dinner arrangement and again no one showed up. I called again, now the part is "out of stock". How it went from being in their hands at noon to being out of stock at 8pm is something I can't fathom.
Other attributes... The laptop is slow to start. Has a poor screen. Has terrible batter performance (2 hours on the extended battery).
Pros Keyborad Light !!! Durable, shock resist HD, Duo Core, WWAN
Cons some idiot said it's the BMW of Laptops...what an insult
Summary Cliché applies well to this unit "You get what you pay for"
Those who dont have the LED light probably wont understand. This feature will most likely been seen most future laptops from everyone.
The WWAN works very well, but is probably subject to the city you live in. It is also costly for the average user.
The Blue ThinkVanage button is actually usefull.
Finger print secuirity works to well, if an ex-employee has locked this unit down at the BIOS level, You is "SOL" cuz IBM cant do anything
Pros All the great Thinkpad Features, Integrated WAN
Cons A little thicker I'd like to have
Summary I am rating this for 2 equal reasons. One is because some Mac-obcessed punk is just out to bash anything non-Mac without any legitamit arguement. And the second is that this is just a great laptop with outstanding features, performance, support, battery life, a 3 year warrenty . . . do I need to go on?
