The Free Software Foundation has endorsed the Taurinus X200 laptop as a laptop that respects your freedoms.

The Taurinus X200 is a refrubished Lenovo ThinkPad X200 that is then loaded with Libreboot and the Intel Management Engine disabled. The operating system in use is the FSF-certified Trisquel Linux distribution. The Taurinus X200 is sold by Libiquity LLC.

The Taurinus X200 ends up being quite similar to Gluglug's Libreboot X200 laptop that is also a refurbished ThinkPad X200.

The Taurinus X200 starts out at $445 USD with a 160GB HDD and 2GB of RAM. The laptop uses an Intel Core 2 Duo processor with GMA 4500MHD graphics. The device is backed by a 180-day limited warranty.

Those wanting to learn more about this refurbished old laptop with the Coreboot-derived Libreboot can read the FSF.org announcement about it being RYF certified.
