By - November 15, 2006 7 Pictures
November 16, 2006 According to IDC, convertible tablet PC unit shipments will reach more than one million this year and more than four million by 2010, an inevitable consequence of field-bound industries such as healthcare, insurance, real estate, government, education and sales recognising that tablet PCs are the best option available for computer-based efficiencies right now. And Lenovo today pushed tablet state-of-the-art forward with the announcement of the ThinkPad X60 Tablet, a next generation convertible tablet PC with a 12-inch screen offering an indoor/outdoor, anti-reflective/anti-glare MultiView screen for increased viewability combined with the new MultiTouch feature that allows users to move the cursor with their pen or finger. The MultiView/MultiTouch high-resolution SXGA+ screen combination along with the 170 degree viewing angle means improved usability for the healthcare professional recording patient information in a hospital, the real estate agent taking notes in a home or the sports coach reviewing statistics at a game.

Field Tested: Lenovo updates the Z series ThinkPad with the Z61t, Z61m, and Z61p

By - September 9, 2006 7 Pictures
September 10, 2006 Last November, we had a chance to test the new Z60t and Z60m Thinkpads. These devices were the first of Lenovo's 60 series products, and were the first to offer integrated EVDO service from Verizon in the US. They were also the first Thinkpads built to a new set of internal standards for docking station and power supplies that are compatible across the entire 60 generation of products. The Z60 was followed by the T60 and X60 Thinkpads in February, which added Intel's current generation of dual core processors, but unfortunately the Z60 was released too early to get these new gems, and an expected upgrade to the specs of the Z60 didn't materialize when we thought it would. The new Z61t and Z61m laptops refresh their Z60 forbearers, and the Z61p is a new wide screen workstation model based upon the Z61m chassis. Read More

Lenovo Thinkpad X60 and T60 double the horsepower

By - January 5, 2005 9 Pictures
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. Read More
