    Thanks for the post Sonny... I'm not a fan of Lenovo but this does surprise me.

    This isn't the first time that Lenovo has been suspected of this type of behavior.
    All you have to do is Google, Lenovo + Spying + Firmware
    and you'll find articles dating all the way back to 2006, relating concerns from various Government Agencies in the U.S., Australia, the U.K., and others who have express concerns over various potential such inclusions in Lenovo products.
    Personally... I'd never own one. Which is a shame, as they make some pretty nice devices.
