'three handy volume buttons'
'The ugly duckling of Lenovo's ThinkPad line has become a swan.'
'The orientation of the USB ports seems rather impractical'
'A classic ThinkPad, the R61 is full of nice features you don't usually find in a laptop, such as the ThinkLight, an LED that illuminates the keyboard.'
'base $499 configuration about as powerful as an abacus'
'A 3DMark03 score of 1,704 means you'll have to play your 3D games in low-res mode with all the bells and whistles turned off for best results'
'Just imagine listening to music from small speakers mounted inside a tin can and you'll have an idea about the built-in sound quality'
'Dedicated graphics not an option'
'1280x800 WXGA glossy display'
'Business users will not find any cellular modem options, however, an increasingly popular option found on ultraportables built for frequent business travelers'
'Unfortunately, the vertical viewing angles did not impress, the LCD "washes out" when tilted slightly forward and colors begin to invert quickly as the monitor is tilted back'
'Weak, scratchy audio'
'for a business-focused portable, 3D power is weak; the integrated Intel X3100 graphics can handle Vista's Aero effects just fine but turned in a low 548 on Futuremark's 3DMark06'
'Has Wi-Fi (wireless connectivity) built-in'
'it's still black, bland, and not at all revolutionary'
'On higher backlight settings some mild backlight bleed was visible on a completely black screen'
'It does, however, include an external foldable USB keyboard, which types pretty well and has built-in pointing-stick and mouse buttons.'
