Finding the Real EE

2009-11-17, 15:48 PM

Enhanced Experience is something we're all looking for. Let me propose a way we may obtain it if we pool resources.


My understanding is that EE is a combination of BIOS and software. Now the drivers are the same and the Windows Services are the same. Since most of us can all get the latest EE BIOS, depending on machine type, then  the only difference may lie in the Load Order of the Services and other software during boot. Using the Services applet, we can change how services run. And there are programs to help us with the load order of all software.


So if Lenovo were kind, they would tell us how they have tweaked the load order of the software. Or someone with a new, EE laptop/desktop, could post this information so the rest of us could customize out computers. Here're two programs that may be helpful.

"ThinkVantage Device Experience for Windows 7 (32-bit) and (64-bit) - ThinkPad"


Look for this update in The downloads section of support.  I just downloaded it, and i found a performance boost...


Its only part of the total plan...This update adds more tweaks to current EE notebooks, but it does offer a boost to upgraded units as well.


Plan B would be to find someone with an EE certified notebook, and get a copy of the recovery disks that you can burn right from the laptop.  you can then use it to "restore to factory settings" on your notebook, with all the tweaks and drivers in place...then you would truly be EE compliant.


Hope this helps.

"ThinkVantage Device Experience" only adds device stage info (which was prob already installed by windows anyways) and a link to the thinkpad device stage to the start menu. Nothing else.
