A Few Questions

2008-05-28, 1:46 AM
Hello Lenovo Administrators,

My Name is John and I have plans of purchaseing a Lenovo R Series soon because I'm a big fan of Ibm, Lenovo and ThinkVantage. First of I would like to ask is the downgrade cd for XP not available for the R Series? I noticed it was on there for about a day and then went away. Here is the laptop I plan on buying.

    Processor                                    Intel® Core™ 2 Duo processor T9300 (2.5GHz 800MHz 6MBL2)
    Operating system                         Genuine Windows Vista Ultimate
    Operating system language         Genuine Windows Vista Ultimate US English
    Display type                                  15.4" WSXGA+,Camera,BT
    System graphics                           nVIDIA Quadro NVS 140M, PC Card/ Smart Card
    Total memory                                1 GB PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz SODIMM Memory (1 DIMM)
    Keyboards                                     Keyboard US English
    Pointing Device                             UltraNav (TrackPoint and TouchPad) with Finger Print Reader
    Hard drive                                     160GB Hard Disk Drive, 7200rpm
    Optical device                               DVD Recordable 8x Max Ultrabay Enhanced
    Wireless card                               Intel Wireless WiFi Link 4965AGN (supporting Centrino Pro)
    Bluetooth                                       Integrated Bluetooth PAN
    Battery60                                      6 cell Li-Ion Battery ( 2.4 Ah )
    Power cord                                   Country Pack North America
    Language Pack                            Language Pack US English
Now I've seen a Japanese/Amercian key board for a few laptops and wondered if there is one for the R61 and is there a way to change the order to have it installed in place of a American one? Another question I've wondered is what is the Smart Card for that comes with the Quadro card? I tried to do some reasearch on it but failed to find anything. I wanted to know, can I install ram into the system without voiding the warranty or should I send it for upgrade? Also I notcied when checking out that the paypal button keeps redirecting me to the front cart page. Can anyone tell me why that is?. Also Thanks a lot for any support, I'll consider this when ordering from you guys again.

I bought an R61i with WinXP at Buy.com a month ago. I found it by googling "notebooks winxp". I got lots of hits. Buy.com had the best deal at the time.

Are You crazy? For one, Lenovo offeres the cheapest computers around, and they have the best. Why would you go on lenovos website just to annoy the members? I asked a question and if you don't have a responce don't post.
