My T61 has a "restore" partition on the HD, it's about 7 gigs and can supposedly restore it to how they shipped it out using the restore CD to boot from.  It's kind of a pain considering they could have put that crap on a DVD rather than using my HD space, but who cares 100 gigs goes a long way.

I'm using the Vista Home Premium on my T61 that came from Lenovo and it's actually pretty nice so far.  It uses a decent amount of disk space due to a lot of preinstalls, but most of it is stuff you'd want anyway - acrobat reader, some client security apps from lenovo, etc.  Nothing intrusive or spammy that I've seen.  Vista isn't too bad either, but then again I got 2GB of memory and a 7200rpm drive so that might be tempering my opinion of Vista.  I installed Office 2007 and OneNote and I'm pretty happy with where it's at.

The 420 doesn't have a CD/DVD drive, so thats a minus.  Granted, I pretty much never use mine, but when I do it's really handy!

Anybody have a recommendation for a different laptop?  Dell Latitude is not an option (I absolutely hate the way the batter is in the front of the computer).

What the heck is the "batter" ?

Wireless WAN is for cellular type connections, you really won't be using that for any school purpose.

Check out the tracking info when yours finally does ship, mine is shipping from China.  Very interesting to see UPS tracking scans in Guangzhou, CN..

Treat facebook as public information and don't put anything stupid on there.  Thats all.
