Just got a W520 through the outlet to snag the old keyboard...I was surprised it came with not only all the Lenovo stuff, but Chrome (as well as IE 32, 64 bit), Evernote, Symantec VIP Access (which is turning out to be hell to remove). Haven't seen any discussion of Chrome & Evernote coming packaged & wondered if these were standard or options...possibly my outlet purchase wasn't "new"?
In the interest of keeping my SSD unclogged I'd like to remove the unnecessary, but I came across the following on the Lenovo forum re Chrome uninstall causing registry corruption (!):

Did you ever install Google Chrome on this system? If so, is it still installed or is it removed? There is a known issue with the uninstall of Chrome that corrupts the registry. There is a Microsoft fixit script that will restore IE to functioning state again. "
