January 6, 2005 Lenovo today introduced two new ThinkPad models that bring a new level of performance and portability to the world’s most recognizable notebook brand. Incorporating a dual-core processor, the ThinkPad X60/X60s and ThinkPad T60 double the performance of previous ThinkPad models, enabling notebooks to operate multiple demanding business applications used previously only on desktops. Designed around Intel’s Napa chipset, the ThinkPad X60/X60s and ThinkPad T60 are thinner and lighter than previous X and T models, while drawing less power than those systems for extended battery life. Dual-core processors improve productivity and multitasking versus previous processors, allowing users to run multiple high-performance applications – such as medical or engineering software, virus scan or system backups – that might otherwise paralyze the PC. The company is also running an on-line survey of potential customers to assess whether to manufacture the new ThinkPads in black or Titanium - so far Titanium is winning.
