I bought a legit Vista Business DVD and want to wipe a new x61t when my burner arrives. I plan to image the drive first. What do I "put back" from the ThinkVantage suite and junkware afterthat? What gems lurk in the batch?
Does the interface allow selective installs?

What I can recommend you is backing up every documents (or your data.)
Then do clean install. After finished installation, you just have to download system update from Lenovo.com, it will find any drivers that suit your system, and have every ThinkVantage programs for you to choose. Now it's up to you which program is important to you. The less you have, the faster your machine will be.

sipp, thanks. I just got the computer today and will not have any documents or work of any kind to back up. The sooner the better for the re-install of Vista. Is there a site where all the Programs and processes included in ThinkVantage and other bundles are documented? I'd like to study that list and get a sense of the benefit or downside for each install decision I'll be asked to make.
I also have to wait for a external burner to get there from NewEgg so I expect I have time to research the Think Vantage suite and learn some Vista differences. I was on the TabletPC OS up to now.
