I had an IBM Thinkpad until last November, when I replaced it with a
Lenovo T61.  It runs FreeBSD 7 pretty well.  The only problem I've had
so far is that FreeBSD is unable to put it to sleep, but my understanding
is that's not a Thinkpad-specific problem.

So far I've been very happy with all aspects of it.
