Migration in progress from my old, EVDO-less X60 ThinkPad to my new X61 tablet. I couldn’t function without the wide area, so rather than invest more dave-hours in a useless migration and configuration I decided to stick with the tablet this time.
The ThinkVantage Technologies System Migration tool worked flawlessly — first time that has ever happened for me in the setup of a new PC — now I am on the IBM ISSI software installed pulling down Lotus Notes and other software essentials. What a nasty, long, drawn-out process. Sometimes I wish I could just pop the trunk and swap the drive, but that isn’t going to work with a tablet. I’d estimate at least eight hours are into this switch over so far.
