Neat laptop. I'd say Coreboot probably isn't the right choice, however,
since Coreboot is mostly targeted at x86/x86-64 these days. I wasn't able to
find where to download the firmware for this laptop, but it likely uses
U-Boot, which is a great free firmware core.

With or without Coreboot, it's definitely nice to see more FOSS friendly
laptops out there!
