COREBOOT --
The Lenovo ThinkPad T430s is now the latest laptop to be running atop Coreboot as an alternative to its proprietary UEFI/BIOS.

The ThinkPad T430s ships with different options for third-generation Intel Core i5/i7 "Sandy Bridge" processors, 4~16GB of RAM, a choice of a HDD or SSD, and a 14.0-inch display panel.

This Coreboot port to the T430s is for newer hardware than some of the older ports still happening for Coreboot, but the T430s is still far from being latest-generation hardware. The T430s is no longer sold directly by Lenovo but can be found via third-parties for a few hundred dollars.

This Coreboot T430s port was done by Nicolas Reinecke and is based on Coreboot's earlier X230 and T530 ports. More details via this commit landing the new port in Coreboot Git this weekend.
