Yes, Virginia, we have X60 with SXGA+ screens

While I was away on vacation there was an uproar on the GottaBeMobile forum about Lenovo saying they were not shipping any more SXGA+ or MultiTouch/MultiView screens because of problems obtaining the 1.83Ghz, Core Duo processors. I was able to find some at distributors and bought them so we now have eleven of Lenovo's Top Seller model 6366AJU. This unit has an SXGA+ screen, 2Gb RAM, 120Gb 5400rpm hard drive, Bluetooth and comes with an Ultrabase and DVD/CDRW combo. It is a pretty sweet deal at $2,499. When these run out, there aren't any to be had until Lenovo makes some more.

After getting many customer requests for the X60 with a 7200rpm hard drive (all but one have to be custom built by Lenovo), we are rolling out a program to do this upgrade for you. Here is how it works:

ALLTP will upgrade your hard drive to the Hitachi 100Gb, 7200rpm hard drive, load the operating system and put your 120Gb hard drive in a hard drive bay adapter that slips right inside your Ultrabase. Now you have the fastest hard drive and a backup. If you ever need to get warranty repair for your unit (and we hope you don’t) you still have the original hard drive and don’t have to send back the one with all your data.

It's listed as a $279 option under the 6366AJU. We will likely roll this out to other units but this is the first.
