"I was primarily looking for a new laptop because I wanted to update to state-of-art operating systems. I wanted a Linux friendly laptop, as that is my primary operating system. Lenovo Thinkpad T60p has been mentioned at several places (including Linux Journal) as a very Linux friendly laptop. I wanted Linux pre-installed and configured for me, so I went with LinuxCertified's LCTP60 offering - configured dual-booth with Ubuntu 7.04 and Windows Vista Business. My older laptop runs Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger), which I didn't want to upgrade for now.

"So, why write a review for this laptop? Well, I thought there would be other folks who would be interested in a state-of-art laptop with state-of-art operating systems. I recently read an article comparing Vista with Ubuntu. Since, my laptop runs both, I may be able to provide an interesting perspective. Novell is running these 'Hi I am Linux' spoof ads. So, what about my laptop? 'Hi I am Linux.. err, I am PC.., ahem, I am Bi-OS...'"
