Lenovo stretches its screens

Unveils 15.4-inch widescreen notebook tailor-made for road warriors

Lenovo did the math. On Tuesday, the company expanded the number of ThinkPad models featuring a 15.4-inch widescreen to match rival products for the road-warrior crowd.

T60 widescreen

Lenovo stretched the T60 display, making it shorter in height than its 15-inch T60 XGA sibling. As a result, it can accommodate up to 30 percent more movie images, uh, data on the screen. Lenovo also boasts that the shorter screen gives greater clearance on the airplane when the passenger seated in front of you suddenly reclines.

The T60 widescreen also features a WXGA display, Intel Core 2 Duo processors and a range of wireless options--from integrated 3G wireless WAN on Cingular or Verizon's cellular networks to an embedded wireless LAN card based on 802.11n technology. Lenovo's Z series ThinkPads also offer a 15.4-inch widescreen.

Lenovo's T60 widescreen weighs 5.1 pounds, despite the nine-cell battery that comes on select models, offering up to eight hours of battery life.

Available Tuesday, T60 widescreens start at $1,399, not including popcorn.

Details about Apple's 'spaceship' campus from the drone pilot who flies over it

MyithZ has one of the most popular aerial photography channels on YouTube. With the exception of revealing his identity, he is an open book as he shares with CNET's Brian Tong the drone hardware he uses to capture flyover shots of the construction of Apple's new campus, which looks remarkably like an alien craft.
