Also, has anyone ran debian on a new thinkpad, how is hardware compatibilty?
is it a centrino base system?
Linux on Pentium M = yes
Linux on Pentium M duo smp = yes
non centrino = some hardware like wireless and IR may not work easily
most distros will run on it,
all distros should autodetect SMP systems at set it up accordingly.
SuSe & Mandriva are Officially Centrino Certified however most distros should detect all Centrino hardware.
however it \
