A business orientated ultra-portable with embedded HSDPA, does this Lenovo continue the long tradition of the ThinkPad brand?

Lenovo ThinkPad X61s review

 

A well built ultraportable, but does it live up to our expectations?

Small and lightweight ; Great usability ; Good software package

Disappointing battery life ; Inferior performance

Outstanding usability in an ultraportable chassis, but battery life is poor
