Dear Lenovo,

First of all, thanks for making the Thinkpad T61. It’s fast as hell, the screen’s great, keyboard’s nice, trackpad works well, and the little eraser mouse thingy is probably just fine if you like that sort of thing. Also, nice going on the battery life.

It wasn’t worth the 5-week wait, but what is? Still, we’re past all that.


If you’re going to:

  1. Recommend Vista as the preferred operating system for this machine
  2. Offer, and charge extra for, an integrated camera

Maybe, just maybe, you should provide Vista drivers for that camera. And no, “[”This is a limitation of Windows Vista":] " is not really an OK answer. Vista just wants a driver.

You have drivers for XP. You even note that a “third party application or utility” may be able to use the camera (letting us know just which ones might help, by the way).

So I sent the email asking when this might happen. Haven’t heard back, don’t really expect to. Surprise me. Come on, you can do it.

Pretty Much Anyone Who Bought the T61 with Vista Per Your Recommendation
