That's the great thing about having options!

On the first machine with an analog VGA monitor, installgui gave me a
very clear screen.  On my T23 with screen expansion, it was blocky and
not as clear (which is due to the expansion, not installgui).  I didn't
bother to experiment, but these messages may give others the idea to
try different options.

On the T23 the task select chose Laptop by default and the suspend
action from GDM actually worked without any configuration intervention.
I'd call that pretty darn good support.
