Yes.  And don't ever make the horrible mistake of getting any non-ThinkPad
Lenovo laptop, nor the ThinkPad SL.  The Linux support is non-existant, and
it is nowhere near the quality of a true bloodline ThinkPad (models X, T,
R, W).

If you're considering a Lenovo laptop that is not a ThinkPad X, T, R or W,
just buy Dell.  You'd be much better off.
