Running a new X230T with Coreboot

Ben Sturmfels at

My good friend Damien Zammit has ported CoreBoot to the Lenovo X230T and provided me with one of these machines. I'm super happy with it; it's significantly more powerful than my X200, more cores, more memory, better 3D graphics performance, DisplayPort, USB3, great battery life, better screen, but still very compact. I can compile big Guix packages like qtwebkit in the background while I'm working without any issues. I didn't realise, but the tablet screen is actually a proper Wacom tablet with a pressure-sensitive stylus. Super useful for annotating PDFs, but who knows, even some art?
