Anyone had look at the ThinkPads from gluglug.org.uk?

I'm a fan of the free software movement but I'm not too concerned about proprietary bios.  With that said, Thinkpads rock and make excellent CrunchBang machines.

Re: FSF approved ThinkPad X60

Based on the exchange rate (I'm used to thinking in dollars, so I had to do a little math) the prices for those ThinkPads seem reasonable.

As coffee_guy said above, I really don't think BIOS is such a big deal, though a BIOS that comes with its own flashing utility would be a good thing. wink  I'm usually more concerned with whether the wifi or GPU will need proprietary software.

Even if it's Linux-friendly, I don't understand why'd you want such an old machine hmm

Crunchbang runs awesome on those "old machines".
