X60 and Vista
My new laptop arrived today: an ultraportable Thinkpad X60. The laptop is about half the size, and weight,Â of my old notebook.
The notebook came preinstalled with Windows XP and dozens of apps that I would never use. So, without much hesitation, I did a clean install of Vista.Â I was quite worried about whether the new notebook would still work after the install. Video, network, bluetooth, power management, fingerprint scanner. So many drivers.
The Vista install went off without a hitch. Everything works fine and the Vista environment is so much nicer than XP. And although I have been a hardcore Firefox user on XP, IÂ quite likeÂ IE7 on Vista.
The new notebook is really cool and it will be much easier to carry around on the train and in my other travels.
I dont know if my comment posted?
Richard .. good to see you are doing well! Mr. 50.
I hear real good things about that notebook – played with one the other day. But you know me, I cant touch it for more than a half hour or I melt. IBM and all (smile).
Enjoy. I just got off a plane with a new battery from Toshiba – a slice – that gave me 3 hours full use and was 50% left when I departed. Amazing.
