Lenovo is releasing its newest high-end laptop, the T61p ThinkPad, and once more, while it runs desktop Linux, the company isn't overly eager to let the world know about it.

Lenovo seems to have a love/hate relationship with Linux. Last year, it began offering its high-end T60p ThinkPad laptop with SLED (SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop) 10.

This year, the company is releasing its newest high-end laptop, the T61p ThinkPad, and once more, while it runs desktop Linux, the company isnt overly eager to let the world know about it.

Be that as it may, Lenovo released the ThinkPad T61p, on July 10 and will start to ship it to customers later in July. The ThinkPad T61p is, like its predecessor, certified to run Novell SLED 10. In addition, Lenovo is now stating that its laptop has been certified to run Red Hat and Turbolinux as well.
