Lenovo R61 77331CU Review |Lenovo ThinkPad R Series R61(77331CU) 14.1-Inch Notebook-Black

Lenovo R61 77331CU Overview.

Lenovo R61 77331CU can’t be beat for its price, for 229.99, it has “wow” quality.

I needed an inexpensive laptop workhorse to play around with, and this laptop is definitely what I wanted.

Everything was already great from the beginning. I received this laptop in a neat and secure package, found nothing to be damaged.

Price: $229.99 here

Lenovo R61 77331CU laptop itself has a great appearance, a deviation away from the standard Lenovo design. I think the R series from the IBM or from Lenovo have a very interesting design.(Other Lenovo products reviews: Lenovo a700, Lenovo Ideapad G550, Lenovo multimedia keyboard)

The set up was really quick, I took about 15 minutes. Although this machine comes with pre-installed Windows XP Professional Operating System, I installed fresh Linux operating system on it, and it works great, could not be happier with what I bought.

My main reason why I purchase this Lenovo R61 77331CU is because it has official pre-install Linux operating system on it. (though they now drop that idea).

I would go out and tell this Lenovo R61 77331CU is a utilitarian laptop. Although it is a few years old by now, but can you actually tell how many applications that use quad- as well as hex-core processors efficiently?. A Dual-Core Pentium Processor is a speedy CPU.

It also should be noted that Lenovo R61 77331CU has an outstanding quality.

The keyboard is a great keyboard I have ever used, unlike the big money laptop out there, this laptop has a keyboard that absolutely built and designed for people that really know what they are doing. It has clear and bright amazing picture quality, the screen is sided to the right.

This laptop does not have ultra thin and glossy luxury looks, but that is one of the reasons why I bought it, I want a simply flat black laptop that really can do the job.

My only small complaint is the battery. It has a really short battery life, it is about 3 hours. But I won’t complain as all what this laptop can do is exactly what I wanted, all the pros overshadow the cons.
