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.
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

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.
