"A recent campus-wide survey revealed that over 90% of the student body believes that computer technology enhances his or her learning experience," said Philip Lombardi, director of academic computing and media services at Bryant University, in a statement. "Of the students surveyed, we discovered that more students would prefer to use a tablet over a traditional notebook PC because of its light weight and ease of use in taking notes."
Lombardi also noted that during the past year, a group of students have been using Lenovo Tablet PCs to administer surveys and collect data. "Our goal is to extend this technology to more students in various majors to provide them with a PC solution that best complements their academic experience," he added.
Lenovo reports that many ThinkPad X60 Tablet models will ship certified Windows Vista Capable and some will be certified Vista Premium Ready.
Pricing for the ThinkPad X60 Tablet starts at $1,799. The ThinkPad X60 Tablet will be available for shipping in early December. Select models are available immediately for pre-ordering.
