Any T60 will work for that purpose, including non-BIOS locked T60.

Or if you have one already, LOCK that BIOS, it's dead easy.
As to FrankenPadding, you should also tell, which model T60 you want:
- 4:3 14.1"
- 4:3 15.0"
- 16:10 15.4"

I should really have said "T60 with bad motherboard" but I want to see if installing Libreboot will unbrick the thing which is why I was looking for a locked one in particular.

I think librebooting requires unlocked bios since you are making the bucts swap

What's the problem in locking the bios, just as RBS mentioned?

Speculating here, but I suspect the reason to WTB a locked BIOS T60 is to acquire a T60 at a low price - a price lower than a fully functional T60 would likely go for. Yet a locked BIOS T60 still meets the needs of the OP.

If your intent is to flash the board with Libreboot, you (likely) need a board with Intel graphics. Flashing to a motherboard with ATI graphics is not at all simple.

The cost of shipping will outweigh the cost of the motherboard. Consider searching ebay.co.uk for 't60 motherboard'.
