Core "2" Duo.

Won't run on Core 2 Solo or Core Duos.

If it doesn't have 2 cores and 64 bit, I won't run it.

W7 works just fine on the T60/61. With an SSD, it zips along.

I was running 7 preview and release on my T42p (32 bit though). The T41 won't support Aero Glass.

T60 can be upgraded with 64-bit CPU but won't see entire 4GB of memory. Also X61 can run 7 fine and can be upgraded to 8GB memory which is more than budget laptops today.
T540p, T420s (soon to be T420ps :) ), X61t, T60p, T42p, A21p
