Ars Technica – March 2006 – 9 out of 10 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.
