>From the time i've worked on the X60 support, i have a docking station
and a motherboard from an X60s. The bad thing is, it's only a
motherboard, so you don't have a TFT and keyboard/trackpoint. The good
thing: you run the motherboard without anything else on the docking
station, which is nice for coreboot development because you can access
almost anything on the hardware. I'm not sure if i soldered a SPI or LPC
connector to it for reflashing.

I don't have a complete X60 to spare (want to keep my X60), but just
drop me a line if you want to have that 'Coreboot development kit' :)
