Lenovo today announced that it is launching the new ThinkPad X60 Tablet PC. According to Lenovo, this new 3.8 pound tablet is the lightest in its class and it is dressed to impress.

"The Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet PC marries the best aspects of notebooks and pen-based devices. With new screen options, hardware capabilities and an improved sensory experience interacting with the Tablet, the new Lenovo ThinkPad X60 Tablet is packed with the innovation our customers want," said Peter Hortensius, senior vice president, Notebook Business Unit, Lenovo.

The X60 Tablet features a 12.1" anti-reflective/anti-glare display with a 170 degree viewing angle. Screen resolutions of 1024x768 (XGA) and 1400x1050 (SXGA+) are available with the X60 Tablet. Intel Low Voltage Core Duo and Ultra Low Voltage Core Solo are supported as is up to 4GB of DDR2 memory and up to a 120GB hard drive. The X60 Tablet's networking options are plentiful as it can be optioned up with 802.11b/g wireless or 802.11b/g/n wireless and it features a built-in WWAN module. The X60 Tablet also features ThinkPad stalwarts like an integrated fingerprint reader, ThinkVantage Active Protection System for the HDD and  integrated TrackPoint.

Power options include a 4-cell or 8-cell Lithium-Ion battery. With an ULV Core Solo processor and 8-cell battery, the X60 Tablet can function for up to 7.5 hours.

The 10.8" x 9.6" x 1.1-1.3" X60 Tablet will begin shipping in December of this year at a starting price of $1,799. You can check out a review of the new X60 Tablet PC over at Notebook Review.

Even though it defeats the purpose of these "all-business" portables, I'd still love to see a 7900GS inside... :D

Not within this class of notebook it's not in the thermal envelope. This is the reason this is not a Core 2 Duo, it's the low power Core Duo for heat/energy consuption.

SXGA+ on a 12" screen? That's almost unheard of. I think quite a few people will like that.

Not me, though. Yikes.

Ha ha ha ha ha ha....

That's a good one. This doofus just got banned over at DAPReview for spamming his news site. From the mod scores I can see he isn't doing much better here. Get lost troll...
