Lenovo Thinkpad R61i special at Tigerdirect

If you love Lenovo laptops, or you are re-discovering your love for Big Blue, be sure to check this Thinkpad special at Tiger direct! The Lenovo ThinkPad R61i Laptop can be yours if the price is right for you. And the price is... *drum roll* $650, no rebates.

The specs
This notebook is powered by the Intel Pentium Dual-Core T2330 1.6GHz processor. It comes with 1gb of PC2-5300 RAM (two slots, max 4gb), and a 120gb hard disk drive. It bares its soul (oh my!) through a 15.4" widescreen display. It has a dvd burner, Type II PC slot, Windows Vista, 3 USB ports, wireless and ethernet, and the signature red Trackpoint that is a characteristic of Thinkpads. And if you are working in the dark, it has the ThinkLight keyboard light.

The reviews
A hybrid of a review and product description is the CNet product brief. User reviews, by users like you and me, can be found at Amazon - a total of one as of this moment. And a more traditional review, written by YS Mao at

Our Opinion
You can certainly find similarly spec'ed laptops for less from other brands, but if you are a fan of the Lenovo brand, or a fan of the red Trackpoint, then this is worth a look! You are getting Big Blue legacy, and you have to submit ZERO rebates to get this price.
