Locked on for the U110, but Locked off for the rest of the Ideapads? Again, I ask, why?
Probably even more important, where is this stated anywhere in any documentation or literature for these notebooks. Not just "no mention of VT", but "Explicit description of the capability, in the BIOS, to enable VT" or lack thereof.
This gets more disappointing everyday...

Looks like Sony was doing the same thing to their laptops, and user backlash has caused them to take a second look at it.

Bad press for Sony on this same issue. Hurry up Lenovo and fix this problem.

You know, I just do not get this. Sony claims a security issue. However, the leading computer maker HP has this feature enabled on a large amount of there models already. I know there have been some mention of some machines that do not have this feature enabled, but for the most part they have models that are selectable. Even Macs have this feature available in all of its machines. Not sure why Sony is using the security ploy? Well, any case, Lenovo are you listening?
Nice links randomohok,

It seems like the strategy here for Sony and Lenovo is to charge you extra for the use of a standard feature of a modern processor.
They're creating a teired system, forcing you to buy the more expensive models for a basic, built-in feature. This is wrong. And now Sony is getting exposed for it, hopefully Lenovo will be exposed too. I'll be writing e-mails to all the tech blogs i know. I encourage others to do the same.
