R61E Delivery

Just a quick note that the R61E CTO unit I ordered on 16JAN08 arrived yesterday, 21JAN08.

Nice piece of equipment although a bit bulky feeling and appearing after all my T series units.

I've put some comparison photos in the photo thread.
Regards,

James

Re: R61E Delivery

Just curious about the R61e...I'm getting mixed signals as to whether or not a firewire port is actually on this model.  The website says that R61e's come standard with an IEEE1394 port, but any reviews I've seen (that mention a CTO model), show no firewire port.

Is it something that's been added to newer machines (i.e. 2008 models)?

Thanks!

Re: R61E Delivery

I'm afraid I can't really help you as I'm confused about this matter as well. According to the Lenovo R series webpage here, my R61E should have a Firewire port as standard equipment, but it doesn't.

As far as I can determine, the 1394 port is installed in select R61 and R61i machines, but you have to check each individual model to see if the port's on there or not.
Regards,

James
