Customized Experiences on Windows Live

I was rebuilding my Lenovo X61 Tablet today and took a quick peek at the ThinkVantage Productivity Suite (one of the tools that come with Lenovos).  I noticed that the first link in the list of items was "Experience Lenovo.live.com" which took me to http://lenovo.live.com where I got a version of http://my.live.com with Lenovo branding in the top left of the page.

I had a quick play around but couldn’t find any other OEM pages like this; dell.live.com, hp.live.com don’t exist.  Nice work by the Windows Live guys – perhaps one improvement might have been to use the wording "Experience Lenovo Live" rather than the URL – just a little more friendly.

    Cool, thanks Jamie! The Verizon one is very heavily customized and actually links in Verizon’s own email as opposed to Live Mail.  It also doesn’t use any of the my.live.com parts I have already configured compared to Lenovo which uses my settings.

    They also use variations of the Windows Live branding, QWest is much smaller than the others for example.
