Meet Vader

He’s lean, mean, got fabulous memory, two brains, deep pockets, a black cloak and can reach out and touch you without wires.

And he weighs in at 1.5 kilos.

He is Vader – my new IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad X60s.

Sporting 2 GB of RAM, 100 GB of SATA hard disk goodness, 802.11a/b/g wireless connectivity, a docking station with a dual layer DVD writer, 12″ display, SEVEN USB2 ports, a built-in SD card reader and Core Duo L2400 processor, Vader is the fastest and most maxed out notebook I have ever had, and also the lightest. And runs for almost 7 hours on battery.

That makes it about 10 years that I have been using Thinkpads exclusively, and I have yet to regret it.
