I had an IBM ThinkPad T41 that I was using until recently. It was rock

I switched jobs so I had to return that T41, so I'm thinking about
buying a ThinkPad of my own.

Since the T41 however, IBM has sold its ThinkPad line to Lenovo. I've
only heard anecdotal stories about Lenovo, and its largely been about
driver compatibility.

Can anyone comment on whether or not Lenovo has maintained the IBM
quality standards for the ThinkPad line, whether or not a Lenovo would
make a good FreeBSD laptop, or suggest some alternatives?


I am on my third Stinkpad and this one is a Lenovo R61i. I believe it is just as solid as my previous Stinkpads, I love it, wouldn't trade it. I have not installed FreeBSd on any of them, but my last ( a G40 ) and this R61i run Desktop BSD and PCBSD in vmware wonderfully.

In 50 years, our descendants will look back on the early years
of the internet, and much like we now look back on men with
rockets on their back and feathers glued to their arms, marvel
that we had the intelligence to wipe the drool from our chins.
