Hardware, Embedded Systems "The recent release of Intel's Centrino 2 platform means a refresh of notebooks from every manufacturer. Lenovo took this chance to not only update the internals of their ThinkPads, but also to make changes to their naming conventions and release a few new models, including the addition of the ThinkPad X200 to the venerable X series." The X200 brings along a widescreen display (the X was the ThinkPad's last standard aspect ratio series), the Centrino 2 platform with 45nm processor, and an SSD option. The notebook is a bit wider than before but still has that ThinkPad keyboard and with the right battery it will last up to 9 hours."

The review is almost as stupid as bashing Windows or vendors that ship with Windows preinstalled following up to an article that doesn't have anything to do with Windows or operating systems.

So rather than raise a point, you abuse me and try to censor my post by moderating it down. Yes, that's *really* mature.

Windows is part of the machine, and it is up to as much scrutiny as the hardware components itself. The fact you can't see that makes you unqualified to even post on this website let alone open you mouth to spout diatribes on issues you know little about.

Lol, Kaiwai, did your Macbook overheat again and burned your balls?

And Windows is NOT part of the machine!
Windows is just a bunch of magnetic fields on the hard disk platters which will be wiped without a trace and replaced (at least in this poster's case) by nice install of Slackware. And it'll be as if Windows never existed.
And I might, just to piss you and Steve J. off, put a quick install of OSX on a small partition at the end of the hard drive.

Now, go put your overpriced Macbook in the freezer for a while. ;)
