Lenovo Thinkpads with no OS -- Where??


I've been looking for this elusive, phantom Thinkpad that is preloaded with Suse (or ships with no OS - I'm a bit confused on that. Though I'd prefer no OS at all, I'd rather have suse than Vista,). I can't find it anywhere. I see plenty of articles and even pages on IBM and Lenovo's websites advertizing and talking about it. But I simply can't find it *anywhere*.

Anyone know where it is?

Smile Surprise!

This is looking unbelievable to me but you read carefully instruction manual and if you got notepad without os this is really good because recently i purchased HP pavilion in which i got vista installed now i am
not able to install XP which i need badly.

Ugh, now I'm depressed. Wanted to order the Thinkpad R61, called Lenovo and they said they are "required" to install a Microsoft operating system on every notebook they sell. So discouraging. But I have my principles. Should I compromise and pay MS just to get a Thinkpad?

My current computer works fine, but I was going to give it to my mom. Perhaps I should just get her a Macbook.
