Yes, if anyone could get ahold of it.

I would imagine that first option allows you to set the machine type. In my case I would change it to a 4242-CTO if I could find a sticker to match. That would be impossible though.

For whatever it's worth, the X201 version was posted (and probably still is!) over a year ago on the X201's "DDFM" driver list (good riddance of the "regular" javascript-loaded one!) - with the same page including an EFI version which is obviously unusable on the X20? series...
