Hi /g/,
I live in the shithole known as the Toronto area and it's full of pajeets selling their 15 year old laptop for $200, so it's nearly impossible for me to get any libreboot capable hardware at a reasonable price. On ebay, anything that runs libreboot is marked up a bunch too. Any anons know where I can get a libreboot-capable laptop on the cheap?
>>
I'll sell you my X200 for $200, you have to pay shipping.
Also you have to libreboot it yourself.
>>

I'm fine doing it myself. Where are you located?
I'll do 120
>>
>>79686991
no, $200, the price is non-negotiable
>>
>>79686997
Alright Schlomo, I'll have to pass
>>
> pajeets
I'm offensive and I find that Indian

Also look for misspelled listings on eBay and Craigslist or whatever. Some people are too dumb to even know what they're selling and you can get shit for cheap. Obvious but hope that helps

All librebootable laptops are cheap
Not true for some coreboot laptops
You should get the Raspberry Pi keyboard + external battery charger

>literally have a box full of T60, T61, etc
>bought these 2012-2016 or so for $20 each as they were considered worth less than garbage
>kept them as emergency backup laptops and for friends for cheap burner shitter laptops
>literally using a T60 as a print server in the other room which only gets turned on once every couple months
>mfw they are going for $200 on ebay as "VINTAGE/RETRO" and even more if you search with the word libreboot
Thanks OP, thanks for being such a dumb fucking nigger and falling for this meme. I'll go and mass order some chink SSDs and retire now. Fucking stupid faggots and freetard niggers none of this boot shit matters, the OS does.

>>79686911
You know, at a certain point, hunting around for the absolute minimum price is a waste of time.
>>
>>79686911
Does it have to be libreboot or is coreboot+ime disabled good enough? Because ivyra1n exists
