at FOSDEM this year I stopped at the Coreboot stand and I mentioned that
I was having problems finding a 16 pin SOIC clip to flash coreboot on
my thinkpad x200.
The person at the stand said that somebody in the project knows a
chinese website which sells those clips at a significantly lower price
than the usual ones, and that this information could be shared someway
on the website / mailing list.
Does anybody know which website is that?
Thanks in advance

There are a number of chinese websites offering cheap SOIC clips, the most
widely known is probably Alibaba/Aliexpress:
These are certainly much cheaper than the expensive ones available in the
"west" - though I don't know if the quality is adequate.
Should you order some it would probably be interesting to give feedback on
I don't see the need to explicitly promote a specific website on coreboots
web presence as these are easy enough to find, and even the Pomona clips
aren't that expensive anymore.
