Generally speaking, R61i was the less expensive version.


However, you'd have to compare specs of the two examples piece by piece and decide for yourself what suits you better. There were simply too many variations within the model designation



In daily use: T43pSF, R60F, T61, X301

Collecting dust: T60, T61p, R500F

Enjoying retirement: A31p, T42p,

Non-ThinkPads: Panasonic CF-31 & CF-52, HP 8760W

I build FrankenPads....scary FrankenPads...

S = SATA-mod (on T43/p units only)
F = FrankenPad
L = LED-mod utilizing an UXGA AFFS LED screen

R61i usually has lower CPU spec and the GPU option is limited to the Intel model (for most countries), also the resolution of the LCD is lower.
