I'm typing this on a T60 and my officemate just "upgraded" his to a T61 - 
they certainly do have a bunch of teething problems. Depends a bit on what 
you use them for, but there are issues under Windows with docking and 
undocking as well as random slowdowns and more bluescreens than I've seen 
on any of the other Thinkpads I've had.

The T61 currently seems to be a bit worse than the T60.

In the past IBM have been pretty good with Linux as far as I've heard, but 
Lenovo aren't as good as IBM on anything that I've seen so far.

ideas that could provoke such a question."
