Thinkpad T400: My goal is to build the most powerful Thinkpad that meets these specifications.

I'm pretty new to the Thinkpad community. I've been researching the various models and have found it rather confusing, especially as models will have multiple options and configurations.

I believe I have it narrowed down to 2 models, the X200 or the T400.

My primary concern is the ability to install libreboot or coreboot.
Second is a classic-style keyboard or a means of modding in such a keyboard.

My goal is to build the most powerful Thinkpad that meets these specifications.

Any tips, advise, correction, or insight will be very much appreciated!

Those models have the classic keyboard. The CPU of the X200 can't be upgraded.

ahh that might be the tipping point. I liked the small form factor and was trying to debate whether the cost for the x200 was worth it

You might consider T430 that can modded with 7 row classic keyboard and upgradable CPU
