Technoethical also sells X200 that is appreciated, with twelve reviews:

Hi gderok,

You might also consider the Libreboot T400 from Minifree:
https://minifree.org/product/libreboot-t400/

It uses the same CPU and GPU as the X200, but has a bigger screen and better cooling. It's currently at a special low price on Minifree.

Unlike the X200, it also has a trackpad/touchpad on it in addition to the trackpoint nub.

Minifree uses fast shipping in Europe, probably about as fast as from Germany. Average is about 2 day delivery time once shipped, for eastern European countries.

I also use fast shipping for USA; 2-3 day on average once shipped. 1-day is possible ;)

The small form factor is nice, but the lack of a trackpad is a deal-killer for many.

I was worried about not having a trackpad but after using the x200 I found that it was not.

I hate all Touchpads! It bothers me!
Without my X200 I'll writing with an Olivetti "Lettera 22".

bravo amigo!
I still own one Olivetti Lexicon 82 type writer with its original case made in leather, the problem is the ribbon holder is broken.
It did serve me very well.
For Word Processor, currently I still use the package of the Libre office suit.
for typing on paper, I still use my brother EM-630
Typewriter. Still works.

I prefer an X200 over an T400, it is lighter and more practicable. A lot.

The display has the same resolution as the T400, while the T400 has 2 inches more space on the display; not really needed.

The T400 doesn't really have better cooling as claimed by some, the X200's cooling is just fine, for reference (scroll down):

They also have the same performance.

The X200 docking station has an HDMI output, that is important for many people who use external monitors or TV sets. The T400 docking station only has DVI.

The T400 doesn't make much sense in direct comparison, if something would make sense, it'd be a T500 with a 1920x1200 display if you don't care about weight.
