Depends on what options you have installed. The Turbo memory needs a free PCIe Mini-Card slot. If you was wan and wireless usb you don't have a free PCIe Mini-Card slot. I don't think you are going to see larger than 1gb size. If to large you lose advantage.

Plus the t61 prices have settled quite nicely. If and when a TXXX series comes you will pay a premium for first couple of months.

Lets say they announce in June ship in late july prices will be high through end of september. Do you really want to wait 7 months.
