    Very cool. I like the X61s' thin bezel + square screen. So what do you use the X61s for now that you have a new laptop?

    I have the x61 not S but none the less I would differently not call the panel on my x61 crappy. I also have a X300 and a x220. Out of all of them the x300 wins. I think all the ing about the low rez on the x220 was or is over rated. Anything higher it would make the font size very small. Now if they had made the x220 screen a 16/10 would have been the best of both worlds. Also looking at my x220 and my x61 shows there's was no reason to switch to the 7mm drive. There was plenty of room for a reg HD.

    I suspect the first photo has some perspective distortion. It would have been better to put them side by side rather than one on top (further from the camera, making it appear smaller) and the other below.

    I'm not sure about the first one, but the last one definitely does. On the last one (x61 on top of x220 from the left side) x61 actually looks less deep than x220?! Just compare to next-to-last one (same configuration, but from the right side), although that one is a little suspect as well, if compared to the picture before it (same configuration, from the top) -- the difference in depth of that one looks even larger.

    Still, this was quite helpful. If somebody could add the same compared to x200/x201, it would be very much appreciated...
