Don't hold your breath. Lenovo, in the brief time they have been running the Thinkpad division, is notoriously slow at getting product in the channel; especially the high end stuff. I have a T43p and I would buy a T60p right now if they had one available. I'm guessing you won't be able to get one till April.
I'm thinking about going the ACER 8200 route because I think it's got great components and a widescreen... AND it will be available very shortly.
