ADHOC x200s - Librebooted Lenovo Thinkpad X200s laptop with Debian GNU+Linux




ADHOC - Anonymity, privacy and security through uncompromised tech.

Notice: all x200s we had in stock ready to ship have now sold out. If you purchase this item it will take us about 3 weeks to prepare you laptop (replace those nasty WSON8 BIOS flash chips, flash, install OS, etc.).

Secure and privacy-respecting Lenovo Thinkpad X200s notebook running 100% free (as in freedom) software. Proprietary BIOS replaced by Libreboot that loads a fully encrypted Debian GNU + Linux operating system. Refurbished with fully free-software compatible components and peripherals.

This 100% auditable system is fit for entrepreneurs with bright new ideas, stock and crypto traders, investigative journalists, activists, lawyers and all other individuals that know the true value of their data-privacy and freedom.

The X200s is a slimmer and lighter version of the X200, nowhere else available for sale with pre-installed Libreboot. This laptop carries a hard-to-access BIOS flash memory chip that cannot be flashed on site with test clips.

In order to get Libreboot into the X200s machine we replace its original WSON8 Macronix MX25L6405 8 MB flash chip with a brand new SOIC8 Winbond 25Q128FVSG 16 MB chip flashed with Libreboot. This new chip can be flashed internally via command line and also externally with SOIC8 test clips.

- Intel Core 2 Duo SL9300 processor. One of the last few Intel processors where you can fully disable and remove Intel Management Engine.

- 4 GB (2x 2 GB) DDR3 SO-DIMM RAM

- 120 GB HDD

- Atheros AR9k miniPCIe WiFi card. Compatible with ath9k wireless driver. Does not require firmware blobs.
