    Default T401? New Platform?

    I was just wondering...when do you think we will see a refresh on the T400? Is Intel supposed to release a new laptop platform this year?




    Also, are all the keyboards on the new T400 now bad to the old nice T60 kind?

    Doubtful to see a refresh this year. Intel should release a new platform by the end of the year, you will probably see a refresh in 2010.

    And no, the keyboard issue has been corrected. They use the same keyboards as the T60/61.
    Current laptop: Lenovo W520, previous laptops: MBP 15, Acer 6920G, Dell Inspiron 8200.

    I believe Intel is releasing the next platform, Calpella, at the end of this year, so expect most OEMs to have a refresh at the beginning of 2010. The T401/501 will likely be refreshed then.

    Intel says q3 for Capella. My memory could be wrong, but I believe with the Santa Rosa launch they had products announced by manufacturers on the same day.

    Initially, yes. But I believe Intel pushed it back due to laptop OEM demands.

    It will certainly be refreshed by then if that's when Intel has their new line.

    A new platform is coming, Intel is readying Centrino Montevina Plus, an updated version of the existing Montevina laptop platform.

    There really isn't any difference. There is just a newer chipset (G47) which ups the GMA X4500 speed, faster processors, faster lower voltage processors, which leads to price cuts on current processors. No new tech, just increase in speeds.

    Hopefully Lenovo will update GPU but I wouldn't hold my breath.

    I think the SL300 and SL400 may get "ATOM ION" technology soon.

    It's a rumor that Lenovo will soon have a super "netbook" and both the SL300 and SL400 would compliment Lenovo's line of notebooks as "netbooks" IMO.


    Also Lenovo is not selling SL300s or SL400s right now. Leads me to believe they are getting some overhauling.
