Hardware, Embedded Systems "Lenovo, the world's No. 3 PC maker, said on Monday it would start selling laptop computers preloaded with Linux software from Novell instead of Microsoft's Windows operating system." Ars Technica has more on the announcement. "ThinkPad customers will soon have a new configuration option, as Lenovo and Novell have announced that the popular laptops will begin shipping with SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10 (SLED) preinstalled. Although the ThinkPad has been certified for Linux for some time, this marks the first time Lenovo will ship a laptop with Linux preinstalled - while providing both hardware and OS support." Lenovo is the third big name to sell consumer computers with Linux installed (after Dell and Acer).

would be nice if they had one that met my reqs but last time I looked they didn't.

I want one with a core 2 duo >= santa rosa (800Mhz FSB), nvidia graphics, intel wireless n, and a decent display 1680x1050 on a 15.4", or 1440x900 on a 14.1", or 1280x800 on a 12.1".

Click customize on the far right model, and switch to the 1680x1050 display. Then select the N wireless option. All done.

Hmm, should have said geforce instead of quadro. I always find something to complain about.
