Lenovo rolls out the ThinkPad T61 and R61

The Santa Rosa leaks are still flowing with the latest offense being made by Lenovo. Fujitsu leaked three Santa Rosa notebooks last week and today is Lenovo's turn with the new ThinkPad T61 and R61.

Both systems are based around Intel's Core 2 Duo processors (T7100, T7300, T7500, and T7700) and used the Intel GM/PM965 chipset. 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista are offered as is Windows XP Professional. Intel's new Wireless Wi-Fi Link 4965AGN and the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 IGP will be available for systems without discrete graphics.

Both laptops will be available with 14.1" displays (WXGA, WXGA+), Intel Turbo Card (previously known as Robson) for increased system performance, full hard disk encryption, SmartCard support and discrete NVIDIA graphics.

The ThinkPad T61 and R61 will both be available in May 2007. WWAN models of the T61 will first become available in June while The R61 will be available with a Blu-ray DVD burner beginning in July.

Also of note with the new notebooks is that Lenovo has finally removed the "IBM" branding from the palm rests. The IBM branding has been a leftover vestigial since Lenovo purchased the company’s PC division in 2005 for more than $1 billion USD.

I hope not. You could still get the T60p in the old 14.1. I'm still using my old T42. It works great, but I've been waiting for Robson to upgrade. I'm hoping it's not widescreen only, as the link implies. That will make my decision tough. It might make me go with a T60p instead. I just don't get widescreen on a laptop. I'm fine with it on desktops.

To me, this would be a major sign that Lenovo is losing touch with its business customers.

I disagree. I went through bschool just as widescreen notebooks started taking over, and for anyone who uses Excel on a regular basis widescreen was preferred (especially if its WSXGA+ or better res).
