Remember... Lenovo is one of the companies that have a hardware lockdown so that only Vista will run on their systems.
So if you plan to use it to dualboot XP, bootcamp or linux or anything else you can forget it.
Their tech specs say:
This product is Certified for Windows Vista: Only Certified for Windows Vista

That is incorrect on all fronts. There is no OS lockdown. The ThinkStation only comes preloaded with Vista. Lenovo fully supports XP (32-bit & 64-bit flavors of both Windows OS's). Also, you can order it with Linux Redhat and it will come with an install DVD & full support.
