This notebook resembles the rest of the Thinkpad line in most respects, but differentiates itself in a few ways. The Z series is the most consumer-friendly Thinkpad and combines popular features, like an integrated camera and widescreen display, with a reasonable price- something that is sure to go over well with buyers. The Z61t is still not ever going to be as cheap at as entry-level Dell but it currently starts are just over $1100 and has the features to justify the extra money, as well as the distinction of being a Thinkpad. If those were all not enough then it has one more surprise in store- a titanium exterior.
Looking at the Z61t's vitals we can see that it is equipped with a 14.1" widescreen LCD and starts out at 4.5lbs. So it is heavier and larger than the X60 series but lighter than the budget R models. It is most closely related, at least on paper, to Lenovo's mobile workstation, the T series, though the T series is available in a few different sizes and is, on the whole, better suited as a desktop replacement than Z.
