Reading this article about the Thinkpad X62 mod.

Really interesting stuff, including battery saving tips that can be applied to any GNU/Linux laptop.

Does anyone know if the motherboard made for this machine has a whitelist that prevents using a non-intel wireless chip? I'm seriously looking at this to replace my X200 because all new laptops suck.

@pati @mikegerwitz yes but it's not an official lenovo thing, it's a project made by a hobbyist group in China that upgrades an x61 with modern hardware. The article in my OP explains it all.
