Centrino Duo in the newest ThinkPad
Subject: Mobile | July 21, 2006 - 03:02 PM | Jeremy Hellstrom
The newest Lenovo ThinkPad, the T-60 contains an Intel Core Duo T2400 (1.83GHz), 1GB of DDR2 667MHz SDRAM (2 DIMMs) and a 14.1" TFT with SXGA+ (1400x1050) resolution. The Tech Report found that when it is put onto maximum battery power saving, you can surf for over 9 hours or 5.5 hours watching DVDs on a single charge.
"THE FOLKS AT Intel sent us a ThinkPad T60 a couple of months ago as an in-the-flesh example of the
Centrino Duo platform in action, and it's not hard to see why Intel chose this particular
implementation of its technology as a showcase. The T60 is loaded, with more built-in accessories than

We've taken our sweet time testing the T60's performance, battery life, and general usability--so much
so that the successor to its mobile Core Duo processor is rumored to be imminent. Before we're totally
blown into the weeds by the rate of progress, let's take a look at how this Centrino Duo-based laptop
compares to a Pentium M-based precursor. We'll also consider the T60's many virtues, including the Zen
of the ThinkPad--that intoxicating combination of build quality and features that somehow makes paying
the premium for the ThinkPad label seem like the only rational choice. Read on as I type away on this
wonderfully clicky keyboard."
