New review of the Lenovo Thinkpad X60 Core Duo Laptop from ArsTechnica/Engadget. The Lenovo Thinkpad X60 features a Intel Core Duo T2400 1.83GHz Processor, 512 MB DDR2 5300 (667mhz) RAM, and 12.1″ 1024×786 XGA LCD Display. Read full story for more from the review. Via Engadget / ArsTechnica.
Engadget: The Lenovo X60 has a 12-inch display, and also includes an 80GB drive. The main reason for its more slim profile: no optical drive; you need either a USB drive or an optical docking station. Ars Technica took a look at the X60, and found some differences between the X60 and earlier IBM-designed ThinkPads, including a redesigned keyboard (which now actually includes a Windows key) and a new dock connector. In the end, Ars found that the new model benefits from the Core Duo’s speed and battery life, and still has many of the ThinkPad qualities, such as an ergonomic keyboard and sturdy design, that the model was known for under IBM, making it one of the ‘best ultraportable machines on the market.’
