Admittedly, it feels a bit strange to praise a machine for getting a Core 2 Duo
in April of 2007, but Lenovo's highly-regarded convertible has finally remedied the one gripe
that nearly everyone seemed to have about it. While we've seen the C2D hit high-end lappies rather late
in the game, we're fairly sure this one takes the cake for belatedness, but if you've been
anxiously awaiting for the overdue processor upgrade, your wait is finally over. Right now, you can order up an X60 Tablet PC
with a 1.5GHz L7400V Core 2 Duo CPU, 12.1-inch SXGA+ display, 1GB to 4GB of DDR2 RAM, up to 120GB of hard drive space, Bluetooth, 802.11a/b/g/n, and an eight-cell Li-ion battery to boot. Of course, such "fresh" luxuries apparently don't come cheap, as a fairly well-spec'd machine will run you upwards of $2,000, and should arrive "within one to two weeks" from now.
Well you can officially color us confused, as it appears that the Core 2 Duo mention on Lenovo's official webstore
is, um, bogus. According to "sources at Lenovo" cited by TabletPCTalk
, "there are no Core 2 Duo ThinkPad X60s available as of this moment," but alas, we've no idea when this moment will end and the next will begin. Stay tuned.
