Lenovo and Novell Unveil SUSE Linux-enabled ThinkPad Mobile Workstation
Posted on 15-Aug-2006 18:36 | Tags Filed under: News



Lenovo and Novell have announced the Linux-based ThinkPad mobile workstations, which will run Novell's recently released SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 operating system. The workstations are based on Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology.

At just an inch thin and 4.7 pounds, the new Linux-supported ThinkPad T60p is aimed at design engineers, providing the processor speeds and memory necessary for industrial-strength applications such as Computer-aided Design (CAD).

The companies say this series provides users with a secure platform for a traditionally desk-locked advanced design engineering. In addition, engineers will be able to perform routine office tasks without having to switch workstations between the office and the lab.

The Lenovo Linux-enabled workstations are currently certifying engineering design applications from companies such as Cadence, Synopsys and Mentor Graphics. Additional workstation certification candidates are also under evaluation.

Several ThinkVantage Technologies, including the ThinkPad Configuration Utility, Power Manager and Access Connections are supported on the new Linux-enhanced ThinkPad T60p workstations.

The ThinkPad Configuration Utility helps users to manage and control the system's hardware. With Access Connections, users can automatically switch between wired and wireless networks via a simple navigation and setup wizard. The ThinkPad Power Manager adjusts the notebook's system settings to match the user's workload, impacting battery life, system temperature and overall unit performance. Customers can easily manage settings for CPU speed, fan noise, hard disk time out and refresh rate display.

In addition, the ThinkPad T60p mobile workstation supports warm and cold docking while running SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10, supports up to 4GB memory and includes customer Help Center support.

Both the 14-inch and 15-inch ThinkPad T60p Linux Mobile Workstations will be available beginning August 15th via the Lenovo website and through select business partners. Prices start at US$3,099 for 14" models and US$3,199 for 15" models.
