IBM "BM's Thinkpads had a consistent reputation as a solid, reliable business-oriented laptop. With IBM divesting of its PC division to Lenovo, many have wondered what will happen to the ThinkPad lineup. Will the quality decrease? What about performance?" Ars reviews the Thinkpad X60, and concludes: "The X60 is a solid implementation of the new Core Duo platform. Lenovo hasn't lost the ThinkPad 'touch' yet, and is proceeding with development in the same way IBM has. And the new Core Duo platform brings dual-core performance to Centrino, while keeping the same low power usage."

The battery life is very impressive. Too bad that thing has only XGA resolution, if it had more pixels or was availalbe in 13" widescreen (like the VAIO S series), I'd be highly tempted. Small and long-lasting is great, but XGA is just not enough any more.
