I'm thrilled with mine!  Got the professor I wanted most, a bunch of cool people in my larger section, and one of the LSDers I'm closest with in my small section.

Man, I feel kind of bad...I had to duck out of the MAP stuff on the last two days to receive furniture shipments (yesterday) and sign for my laptop (today).  I didn't realize they'd not allocate oral assignments according to who was actually present, so the person I was supposed to pair with had to go it alone.  Ouch.

That said, it is really nice to pay only $60 for windows xp pro and a full office suite.  I'm in the process of getting my drivers installed on my newly wiped and XP-loaded laptop.  I'm sure you're all jealous of my "fun" or at least you would be if you weren't out having a great time and ducking the rain.

I bought XP and office too.  Any advice on how to install XP on my laptop (currently has vista)?  Thanks!!!

It's also very important whether your internal hard drive is an ATA or SATA drive.  Mine was an SATA drive and, since modern laptops do not come with a floppy drive, I had to slipstream my SATA drivers into the windows XP CD so that my hard drive was recognized by the installation process.  It's a big pain in the ass but it's doable.  If you don't have an SATA hard drive though, it should be pretty smooth sailing.  I'd definitely recommend downloading and burning the proper drivers ahead of time as suggested since it's very hard to to do if your new installation doesn't recognize any of your networking devices.

since we're laptop twins...

(add that you should find the driver for your network card / wireless card (however you're connecting) and save that to an external device, too.  Just in case.  Go to the Lenovo site then to Downloads and Drivers.  You can find the model number on a sticker on the bottom of your laptop.)

Gracias!  Do we have a SATA or ATA hard drive?

I dont quite get that moniker. Sales tax in Michigan is higher, property tax in NH is higher...

but NH doesn't have income tax and mass income tax is pretty high

This is a relatively good bet but didn't hold true for me.  My problem is that I have Intel's newest chipset so the additional SATA controller drivers on newer XP builds still wasn't able to recognize my SATA controller.  I had to take the disk I bought, download the drivers, slipstream them into the XP CD, and then install from there (the nice thing is that since I had to slipstream anyway, I included my wireless n drivers and LAN drivers as well).

This won't be a problem for anyone who either:

A) Has a chipset old enough to be supported by default

or

B) Has some kind of BIOS ability (as the thinkpads seem to have according to that link above) to bypass the issue entirely

EDIT:  or

C)  Has an internal floppy drive or USB floppy drive with which to load the drivers

Yeah, this seems to be what the "Change the SATA option from AHCI to Compatible" step does.

The laptop in question has the newest chipset, but I haven't been able to try it because I don't have the XP disc yet.  If you run into any trouble, I'll be around on Monday trying to do the same thing.   :)

I'm gonna try and do it tomorrow nite.  I was at best buy today getting my cell phone and seriously considered asking the 'geek squad' to do it for me.
