Centrino Duo in the newest ThinkPad

Subject: Mobile | July 21, 2006 - 03:02 PM |

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

intellectual property theft via BitTorrent.

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."
