My apologies.

Any E545 laptop with a Trinity series APU (A8-4500M, not sure if others
exist), don't care about wireless/graphics/connections.

I do only buy laptops which can theoretically be supported by coreboot,
and those with AMD Trinity APUs are on the list. AMD Richland CPUs are
not on the list, so the models with a A10-5750M are not in my target group.

It's a bit hard (read: I was unsuccessful) finding out the exact chipset
details of any E545 and whether the chipset is coreboot-supportable.
lspci -nnvvvxxx would help there, and the contents of /proc/cpuinfo
would help me cross-reference this with existing coreboot source code.
