IBM ThinkPad X60s Lenovo for Work

IBM Lenovo X60sLast week, I traded in my HP notebook for an IBM ThinkPad X60s. Although I do not have a great impression for IBM, but I am starting to like it already. Featuring an extremely light weight system, with ultra-portable and long battery life, this laptop is definitely very useful for those people who often travel on the move.

Remarkably, this is a great performance improvement over the previous laptop as it commands a faster speed, as well as a quicker application access. With the dual core, applications can run almost twice as quickly. Not that it really runs twice the speed, but rather I can open more applications at the same time with almost little impact of the speed.

Below are the specifications for the ThinkPad X60s that I currently inherit.

  • Processor: Intel Centrino Duo 1.6GHz
  • Display: 12″ XGA 1024 x 768
  • Hard Disk Drive: (2.5″ size): 60GB 5400RPM

  • Weight with 6-cell battery (without optical drive/with optical drive): X60s – starting at 2.69lbs

I am extremely delighted to take over this laptop from my predecessor, although I wished I don’t have to do that. Anyway, for the time being, this will stay at least with me for the next few weeks. What happens next, no one knows.
