Thinkpad x200


I had $file one of these years ago (then replaced it with the $file chimera, which is currently more or less broken). I bought a new (old) one, because this Model has good $file coreboot support and can run with the Intel ME $file completely disabled. Not to mention that it is an excellent notebook anyway.
