NBC 17 (Raleigh, Durham, Chapel Hill NC) has a story about local students using the Lenovo ThinkPad X41 Tablet PC in the classroom. An “anonymous” person donated the money for 95 ThinkPad X41 Tablet PCs to St. Mary’s School in Raleigh, North Carolina, and by 2007, all students will hopefully be similarly equipped.
CNET/News.com has the story – ThinkPads are coming back to retail, and Office Depot is going to start selling them. Office Depot will start out selling the Lenovo ThinkPad Z60t widescreen or ThinkPad T43, starting this sunday. They’ll retail, for the time being, starting at $699 (yep, you heard right).
