Is anyone have the same troubles as me? I have am running Debian Etch and I can not seem to get 3D working. I also have no idea how to get hibernate working, I have tried a couple of things but it looks like with the combination of Debian, SATA and duo core there are some complications. I have not yet got hdaps working, but I beleive I just need to add this model in drivers/hwmon/hdaps.c "struct dmi_system_id hdaps_whitelist[]" and bust out another kernel.

The new key layout is evil.

For crying out loud, with what kind of accuracy do they think I can place my right pinky, with the view obstructed by my palm? It was bad enough when they put Backward and Forward in the "vacant" space around Up, so that I keep switching pages in my browser when I try to scroll up. But making the right Ctrl and Alt keys narrower than a finger and penalizing any miss with a focus-grabbing Menu popup? That's insane.

Oh, yes, I'm sure the Pointy Haired purchasers will love it ("ooh, more keys!"). Those Lenovo engineers, they seem to have lost all dignity when they switched employers.

Holy cow, I totally agree. I never understand decisions like this, for all you have to do is ask some people that *actually use the laptop* every day and they will tell you why this is bad / good. I just placed a micro-rant about the addition of the Windows keys too. Looks like I'll stay with my good old T43p for a while!

Totally agree, the windows and browser keys are evil.

I was afraid when the Z series where introduced with Windows keys, that other future ThinkPads would also have them, and it seems I was right.

I will be sticking with my current ThinkPad for as long as I can, one can always hope they correct this problem in later models, but I am not hopeful.

Don't revert!

My Edit is based on new information. There *ARE* single core models! Look at the X60/X60s data sheet:

Sorry, I disagree.

I do not think those datasheets cannot be trusted, the only source I think that can more or less be trusted is tabook.pdf. Those datasheets contain specs of *possible* configs, configs that might never be released. We have seen that with other machine types where datasheets or HMM's have specifications that never shipped.

I think we should stick with actually released hardware specs.

I agree, Tonko, the feature listing only makes sense if it holds only information of models that actually exist like that by default configuration. So tabook is the most reliable source. However, i discovered that the product overview page in the support area of the lenovo page seems to be updated more frequently than tabook and i would think that it also only lists actually existing configurations.

I have updated the processor types for X60 and X60s as per anandtech CES 2006 report link here.

if you read just the last entries before yours n this talk page, you will realize that anandtech is not the source we prefer to gather the data from. It rather is tabook.

Furthermore, there are separate Category:X60 and Category:X60s pages.

I reverted your edit.
