Lenovo drops the ThinkPad X60 Tablet PC for some ink loving

Lenovo X60The long awaited new ThinkPad Tablet PC from Lenovo has been announced today and information is flying about hot and heavy.  The ThinkPad X60 is a lovely device with a 12.1 inch screen, integrated WWAN, 802.11n MIMO, WiFi, PC Card slot and up to 120 GB hard drive.  Lenovo is upping the ante on the display front with a number of options available including a 1400 X 1050 hi-res version and a multi-touch version (XGA) that uses both pen and touch input.  The base Tablet PC weighs 3.77 pounds and is that familiar black ThinkPad style with a great keyboard.

The GottaBeMobile boys are all over the release of the X60 with not one but two videos up for grabs with a promised third video on the way shortly.  The first is an interview with Lenovo’s Mike Hagerty where he goes over the new models of the ThinkPad and the second is a Warner Crocker video overview of the X60 with the hi-res display option.  Both videos are top-notch and made me late for work today, way to go guys!  Dennis Rice will be releasing a video overview of the multi-touch screen which I can’t wait to see.

Totally agree. anything compared to the q1 or r2h is going to definitely feel heavy. The M400 I’m using wasn’t that heavy to me until I started using my p1610, about 2lbs.

I was just kidding about the hot and heavy remark, although after having used a Samsung Q1 for a few months maybe it is.

Rob, I don’t know- I don’t like how heavy it is and wonder how that will work for me.

I think jk is referring to the information itself is flying about the web quite a bit. The units are not hot or heavy.

are you getting your credit card ready, jk? I’ll be ordering once the configure to order options are ready, and ordering the high res version.

Where did you get the information that they were hot and heavy?

The official statement on the Vista ready state of the X60 tablet is “selected models”, but the models we have and saw at Lenovo were all spposedly “Vista Premium Ready”.

I think the answer is yes. I will be adding Vista pretty quick to my review unit which is an L2400@1.66ghz, so we will see!

Nicely done, Warner. Tell me, I haven’t heard any mention about Vista plans for the X60. Are any of the models Vista Capable or Ready?
