Neither the source article nor the slashdot reposting bother to say WHERE the system was purchased from. A bit of negligence if you ask me, since it's a very important point of contention for the validity of the article. If the machine was purchased through a third-party vendor (i.e. TigerDirect, Newegg, Amazon, Best Buy), then yes, it shouldn't be a surprise that Superfish is still a part of these machines. However, if this system was bought directly through Lenovo, then there really is a problem here and Lenovo needs to fix it as soon as possible.
