IBM has announced plans to ship beefed-up Thinkpad notebooks with 166Mhz MMX chips and MPEG 2 this quarter. According to IBM?s Thinkpad product manager Nick Eades they will not be positioned as desktop replacement products but be aimed at ?big corporates, such as oil companies and insurance companies,? who have a need for leading edge technology on the move.
The 760 machines will have 13.1 inch XGA LCD screens, 3Gb hard drives and eight speed CD Rom drives. Prices are expected to be around #4,500. ?Mid-range Thinkpads are more likely to target desktop replacement,? added Eades. ?Although the prices for the 760s are high, Gartner has shown that every two hours someone spends out of the office, the notebook starts to pay for itself.?
