meanwhile, back at the ranch

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Lenovo Product Recovery discs are doing their song and dance to install Vista onto my old Thinkpad T61 that will go to Bala. It's pretty impressive those product recovery discs. Once you boot up and feed it the discs, it takes over and installs all kinds of stuff, reboots the PC multiple times, loads Vista and all the Lenovo ThinkVantage software, and customizes it for first use. I'm not sure why it doesn't detect and use the native resolution of the laptop (1680 x 1050) though. Maybe it likes stretching the thing fuzzy. But as long as it finishes I'm happy. And the best part is that it's all hands free. I haven't touched it.

As far as PC manufacturers go Thinkpad is the best engineered product IMO.
