Will E420 drivers be updated to Windows 8?

2013-03-04, 21:00 PM

I bought an e420 coming up on a year ago, my warranty isn't quite up yet, but I'm a little disappointed that I haven't seen any crucial drivers updated to Windows 8. Is lenovo pulling the plug already or will these eventually show up?

I own an E420 (see signature below) and upgraded to Win8 Pro (clean install) several months ago. All crucial drivers have been available from Windows Update or Lenovo. The only things missing are the non Win8 compatible ThinkVantage applications which is not a show stopper for me. Very happy with the overall performance.
