Lenovo adopts 802.11n

Before the standard has even been ratified, Lenovo has gone ahead and announced 802.11n support for its T, R, X and Z lines of ThinkPad notebooks. At 540 Mbit/s, the wireless LAN standard may be as much as 10 times faster than 802.11g, but is still being evaluated by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers). The new ThinkPads should be compatible with 802.11a/b/g. Lenovo's networking announcement comes with mention of a separate ThinkPad, equipped with biometric scanning - in tandem with Utimaco's SafeGuard Easy software, a fingerprint reader should be able to encrypt an entire hard drive. SafeGuard has earned FIPS 140-2 certification from the US government. Lenovo will also be integrating Intel's 64-bit Core 2 Duo processors into the same product lines as 802.11n.
