I have the following thinkpad models running on coreboot:

Thinkpad X60s (Model 1702-24U)
Thinkpad X60  (actually only the Mainboard without case/display for
               debugging: Model 1703)
Thinkpad T60p (Model 2007-CTO)

There are also a few other users with a X60/T60, but i don't know exact
details about the model type they use. I think i've also seen Model
1708/1709 X60's running coreboot.
