I am on my second Thinkpad/Lenovo, first a G40, now a R61i. I only 
replaced my G40 because it wouldn't hold enough ram to run VMWare 
player. I do not think the quality has suffered at all. I cannot say it 
runs FreeBSD well, though any FreeBSD live CD ran without error and 
everything functioned on the G40. I run FreeBSD in VMWare on the R61i.

Fantastic keyboards, long battery life, great screens. They hold up very 
well as I am hard on equipment. These things are tanks.


In 50 years, our descendants will look back on the early years
of the internet, and much like we now look back on men with
rockets on their back and feathers glued to their arms, marvel
that we had the intelligence to wipe the drool from our chins.
