Out of curiosity, I just did a check of the US T61 configuration page and found that they are now selling T61's with Linux! In fact, the Linux T61's are the cheapest ones you can buy ($100 cheaper than the Vista models). And they have WXGA+ screen options for both the 14" and 15" models. Perhaps this isn't news to everyone else, but while I knew Lenovo was selling Linux powered models, I had absolutely no idea that they were selling so many of them, from such a prominent place on their products page, and that you could configure them just like the Windows ones. This is even better than Dell, which hides their Linux machines on a special page behind a easy to miss "Open source PCs" link. Now I am pissed that I had to pay for yet another useless copy of Vista just 5 months ago when I got my T61.
