Lenovo T61p

Lenovo this morning boosted the speed of its T61 widescreen notebook with the T61p. Its design represents both a performance and ergonomics boost to the popular design with the addition of a new-generation, Quadro FX 570M for better graphics; completely new to any of Lenovo's lines is the option of Ultra-Wideband for connecting wirelessly to a peripheral dock while still retaining the same speed as a physical link-up. Changes have also been made to the notebook design itself, Lenovo says: a new layout improves Wi-Fi and cellular broadband reception while simultaneously quieting the system by three decibels and dropping temperatures by ten percent in nearly all conditions.

A base model starts at $1,814; full specifications have not been revealed but include a Santa Rosa-era Core 2 Duo, the workstation card, and a top roll cage to prevent the notebook from shattering during most drops. Other minor upgrades today include 15-inch standard ratio R61 and widescreen R61e notebooks, as well as the option of dedicated (but currently unspecified) graphics options for those who need better 3D performance for games and Vista's Aero Glass interface.
