Installed eCS 2.0 GA on the T60P yesterday, looks really nice!

Wireless works like a charm, still tuning and installing goodies ...

Just ordered a Thinkpad W500 (NRA5YMH) with a 19200x1200 screen, specs just a bit
above the T500 I considered earlier. It has 4Gb memory and a 320Gb disk.

This is still a core-duo, 32-bit CPU at 2.8 GHz, so some hopes that eCS
may run natively on it, and I will install VirtualBox on Windows too :-)
