New ThinkPads released tomorrow:


These are replacements for the R61, T61, and T61p respectively. Notable differences from the previous models include:

    Centrino 2 architecture (CPU-Chipset-WiFi)
    New GM45 chipset w/integrated GMA X4500HD video
    New PM45 chipset w/ATI Radeon HD 3650 256MB
    New PM45 chipset w/ATI FireGL M86-GL 512MB
    New Core 2 Duo processors up to 2.8GHz/6MB L2/1066MHz FSB
    Up to 8GB 1066MHz DDR3 (PC3-8500) RAM
    15.4" 1680x1050 display w/LED backlight (brighter)
    DisplayPort connector (in addition to VGA)
    7-in-1 card reader
    Intel WiFi Link 5300 (3x3 abgn, up to 450Mbps)
    Blu-ray optical burner (dual-layer)

Other important things to note include the fact that these all work with the existing ThinkPad port replicators and docks, and have returned to the white LED ThinkLight (keyboard light). Some models have up to 13 hours of battery life available (with extended main and bay batteries). They have the same look and feel as the units they replace, and include all of the other important ThinkPad features (TrackPoint/UltraNav, UltraBay, docking, rollcage design, integrated spill-proof drains, superior keyboards, etc.).

Scott.
