    I just want to update you all now that I finally got the mic to work
    on my X201s. It's the settings in the BIOS. Unlike earlier Thinkpad
    models, the X201s BIOS has a special setting to enable/disable the
    mic. Bios setup: F1 -> Security -> I/O Ports -> Microphone -> Enable.
    Since I trashed Windows on the X201s as soon as I power up the first
    time that could have disabled the mic by default.

    Now, it's all working.

    Thanks for all you help!
