So I got my Thinkpad back from IBM today, and it’s totally FUBAR. I was relly excited up until the first blue screen of death, then it just got worse and worse.
The support guy was really helpful, but to be honest from my experiences with hardware, Windows and tech support in general, there is a small chance that my machine will ever be back to it’s nippy self again without a complete re-build of the machine (and I really don’t want that). And more to the point, I think that IBM have lost humble me as an advocate (they’ve had at least 3 machines purchased as a result of recommendations I’ve made to clients and friends), unless they can pull something serious out of the bag.
I feel violated. ;-(
