I bought a Thinkpad X200 the week before christmas and I must say I am
quite satisfied. The build quality is what I expected after seeing (not
owning) older models. I got a three year warranty which has become quite
seldom, at least here in Germany.

And linux support is great, too. I had to follow some advice from
thinkwiki.org to get suspend-to-ram and the trackpoint running, but
since this model is still quite young I think that's ok. The video
driver is only available in experimental right now, but that's due to
Debian's current release state.

At night I go to the kitchen; specifically, the knife drawer.
