Re: which one is better?

as I remember X220 has msata :) which means you can buy 32GB msata and install OS onto it , then use 2,5" HDD/SSD as storage :)

Re: Ubuntu v 11+ on Virtual Box Need Help!

hi,

if I were you would install vmware player
it's free and much user friendly than virtual box
besides it's full compatible with ubuntu
I used it lot of time with no issues
about installing ubuntu on the vmware player
all you need to do is just customize it like network connection,printer etc

you wouldn't have that problem with T61 as you can find patched BIOS which eliminates that
