The corporate, widescreen Lenovo ThinkPad T60p includes workstation graphics.
The ThinkPad T60p Widescreen is Lenovo's first wide-screen corporate laptop with workstation graphics. Its 256MB ATI Mobility FireGL V5250 graphics chip is optimised for OpenGL, the programming environment of choice for many big-name game developers and other 3D-modeling professionals.
The Lenovo ThinkPad T60p's WSXGA+ screen has the high, 1680x1050-pixel resolution needed to do detailed graphics work. The screen is quite dim, however, despite being rated at 200 nits. This drawback isn't a deal breaker, but even compared to the 150-nit-rated standard-aspect 14-1in Lenovo ThinkPad T60 (reviewed here), the Lenovo ThinkPad T60p's widescreen definitely looks a little darker.
Our test Lenovo ThinkPad T60p was otherwise very nicely designed. Equipped with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo 7200 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 100GB hard drive, it was a good performer. In WorldBench 6 Beta 2, it earned an admirable speed score of 73.
The battery, an upgrade in our notebook from the standard six-cell to a nine-cell, lasted a lengthy 4.5 hours. The Lenovo ThinkPad T60p Widescreen is also well equipped for wireless communications, with draft-n (and 802.11a/b/g) Wi-Fi support as standard and cellular broadband as an option. At only 2.8kg, it truly is a mobile workstation.
