Do NOT like the new site.

We support more than nine models of ThinkPad, and hope to support more soon.   But, when I visit the site for an individual machine type, I need to quickly see if there have been any recent releases. 

 

With the current site, I cannot figure out how to do this.  There's too much going on and just as soon as I've selected my model, I click on another link and I have to start over.

 

Did Lenovo test this site with their loyal customers before they pushed it?

 

Please improve this, quickly.

Re: Do NOT like the new site.

Hi Jim,

Can you tell which link you click and the machine info was gone and you have to start all over again?

Anyway, we're aware of the difficulty in finding latest drivers by date. The eSupport team is working on improvement enable users to view drivers by date.

Thanks for your feedback.

Best regards,
Cleo

Here's a partial client-side solution:

 

# Powershell 2.0
# Highlight-RecentDriversAndSoftware

# User-Variables
# Highlight files released on or after this date (dd mmm yyyy).
$dateOnOrAfter = "01 Aug 2011"
# Highlight files using this release date background color.
$dateBackgroundColor = "yellow"
# Quick Path data (Examples: 7661, 7661BF3, 7661-BF3).
$quickPath = "4249"
# Default sleep time while Internet Explorer is busy.
$milliseconds = 1000

# Create Internet Explorer instance.
$urlQuickPath = "http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/default.page?`
submit=true&componentID=1296773861022`
&iwPreActions=SetProduct&QuickPath=$quickPath"
$ie = New-Object -ComObject InternetExplorer.Application
$ie.visible = $true
$ie.navigate($urlQuickPath)
while ($ie.busy -eq $true) {Start-Sleep -Milliseconds $milliseconds}

# First category is open; open the remaining categories.
$a1TagName = @($ie.document.getElementsByTagName("a"))
foreach ($a1 in $a1TagName)
{
    if ($a1.innerhtml -match "Arrow_Black_and_Grey_Background.png")
    {
        $a1.click()
    }
}

# Open the file details.
$a2TagName = @($ie.document.getElementsByTagName("a"))
foreach ($a2 in $a2TagName)
{
    if ($a2.outerhtml -match "more_")
    {
        $a2.click()
    }
}

# Highlight files released on or after the specified date.
$tdTagName = @($ie.document.getElementsByTagName("td"))
foreach ($td in $tdTagName)
{
    if ($td.innerhtml -match "\d{2}\s[a-z]{3}\s\d{4}")
    {
        if ([DateTime]::Parse($td.innerhtml) -ge [DateTime]::Parse($dateOnOrAfter))
        {
            $td.bgcolor = $dateBackgroundColor
        }
    }
}

# Goodbye.
