Lenovo X60 Tablet
Lenovo readies its "Santa Rosa" follow-up to the X60 and X60 Tablet

Lenovo rolled out its ThinkPad X60 Tablet PC back in November to complement its existing ThinkPad X60 notebook. The 3.8 pound, Core 2 Duo-based Tablet PC comes with a 12.1" screen which can be had in resolutions of XGA (1024x768) or SXGA+ (1400x1050).

Now that Intel's Santa Rosa platform has been officially announced, Lenovo has begun to slowly transition its product lines to the latest technology. The company has already made the T60 to T61 transition as well as the R60 to R61 switch. Next is the Santa Rosa follow-up to the X60 and X60 Tablet.

The X61 and X61 Tablet PC retain the same chassis as their X60 and X60 Tablet PC predecessors along with the XGA and SXGA+ screen resolutions. The switch to Santa Rosa brings 800MHz FSB Core 2 Duo processors, the Intel GM965 Express Chipset, GMA X3100 integrated graphics chipset and Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN network adapter.

According to Notebook Review, the X61 will also have the option of up to 1GB of Intel Turbo Memory. Although Intel has been touting Turbo Memory as being beneficial to notebook performance, recent testing has shown that performance is mixed.

Expect pricing to stay close to the current X60 and X60 Tablet PCs which start at $1,251.75 and $1,495.50 respectively. The new notebooks will be available in June.

I used to repair and sell laptops. Now, just selling used laptops in bulk (about 20,000 sold last year to China alone)

Believe it or not, in Asia, most persons prefer Thinkpads. Dells have the lowest resell value because of their durability. Most of the Thinkpads usually come in pretty good shape. The dells usually have broken/cracked chassis. They just feel too flimsy.
