The X61 and X61 Tablet PC retain the same chassis as their X60 and X61 Tablet PC predecessors along with the XGA and SXGA+ screen resolutions. The switch to Santa Rosa brings 800MHz FSB Core 2 Duo processors, the Intel GM965 Express Chipset, GMA X3100 integrated graphics chipset and Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN network adapter.
According to Notebook Review, the X61 will also have the option of up to 1GB of Intel Turbo Memory. Although Intel has been touting Turbo Memory as being beneficial to notebook performance, recent testing has shown that performance is mixed.
Expect pricing to stay close to the current X60 and X60 Tablet PCs which start at $1,251.75 and $1,495.50 respectively. The new notebooks will be available in June.
