I am trying to determine if the new Thinkpads (e.g., R61, T61, X61)
will work well with NetBSD.  From what I can tell, the various models
offer permutations of the following devices:

- Intel 82566MM ethernet
- Intel 82573L ethernet
- Broadcom BCM5787M ethernet

- Intel 3945ABG wireless
- Intel 4965AG wireless
- Atheros AR5006EX wireless

I am unclear about how much of this is supported by NetBSD drivers.

Does anyone have direct experience with these laptops and NetBSD?
Does anyone have insight about the driver support?

Thanks for your help.
