    Cool! As part of this collaboration, could you work on getting TrackPoint settings (sensitivity, speed, middle mouse button scroll, etc) integrated into “System Settings” -> “Mouse” so that people don’t have to do all this and this just to configure the trackpoint?!

    Can you point me a URL in the Lenovo store for purchase of an Ubuntu pre-installed system Lenovo system? I’m having trouble finding a system that I can customize to have Ubuntu pre-installed. Does Lenovo have a separate store front or something that I am failing to find? If so please point me in the right direction.

    You say, ‘The ThinkPads, pre-installed with Ubuntu 10.10 are available with the latest processors from Intel and AMD are available to purchase today’.
    The agent I spoke to at certainly doesn’t believe it. If this really true, please let me know asap where I can get one.

    Why do you not put down information about things that doesn’t work? I have a T410 with switchable graphic card and that doesn’t work even though the site says that Ubuntu works fine with T410.
