T and R series with Linux

2009-06-10, 3:05 AM

I see that the T and R series laptops are supposed to be available with Linux, but I've not been able to find a model with the option on any of the model's configure and buy pages. Could someone point me to which model has this option and/or explain how I might go about getting a Linux pre-installed model?

 

Thanks!

looking at the screenshot you've linked, the only model with a linux option is the R series.   unfortunately there is a "not available" icon under the T series column.

The icon shows not available on the T-series, but the text bubble indicates it is.

 

Either way, the R-series seems to have the Linux option. Can you point me at a model with Linux?

 

Thanks kindly!

well, that's frustrating... i can't find one on lenovo canada's site. :smileysurprised:

 

the best thing to do is call a sales rep at 866-96-THINK and inquire about a linux system.   it's possible that they are no longer offered and the chart you found online is outdated.   if this is the case then it will need to be updated.
