The Technoethical X301 is a grade A (excellent condition) refurbished 13.3″ fairly modular/customizable Lenovo ThinkPad X301 laptop preinstalled with Libreboot, the fully free BIOS replacement, and with a fully free GNU/Linux operating system (Trisquel). Enjoy the freedom of having best control of your computing, privacy and security by using the Technoethical X301.

This is the ideal laptop for those who want a slim, light and comfortable travel laptop. When compared to the X200, it is much slimmer, it has a touchpad, an LED (and larger) screen and an optical unit. It is even slimmer than the T400s, while having the same battery capacity and lower power consumption! The X301 is one of the most modern x86_64 laptop supported by Libreboot. It is also very rare and hard to flash externally with Libreboot.

Libreboot is the fully free BIOS/UEFI replacement endorsed by the FSF. It is based on Coreboot, having the nonfree parts removed and better build system. While most people tend to overlook the importance of having fully free BIOS/UEFI and bootloaders, emphasizing only the need to have a free main operating system, these lower layers of the computer can contain backdoors and security vulnerabilities which have the potential to violate user's freedoms and privacy.

However, the control over your computer with a fully free BIOS is incomplete without a fully free GNU operating system, endorsed by the FSF and other free software organizations like Ceata.  A fully free system doesn't preinstall, host or recommend nonfree software. Thus users can feel protected from the dangers of proprietary world and also feel part of the community which contributes to the advancement of the free digital society. The society which Richard Stallman has envisioned and has been fighting for for more than 30 years.
