I pestered a few people I had email addresses for at IBM Lenovo yesterday, and finally got a reply from the original chap who I was dealing with in December – they’re having trouble sourcing me a replacement laptop (!) but the general message was still “yes we’re working on it, watch this space”. So, no real news but it’s still in progress at least.

With any luck I’ll win a MacBook Pro and then the world will be a better place.
