Slightly different machine than the X201 (at the very least it has a different video card).
Everything seems to work, including wireless, brightness, thinklight and volume controls, suspend and resume, and so on. Relatively snappy with 8 gigs of ram. Youtube videos play full screen just fine on a deb-8 vm under Chromium (widgets visible of course).
3.1rc1 would not install (creation of VMs died with a salt error "user 'user' is not available'), but 3.0 installed beautifully.
HCL tool created a yml (attached) instead of a .txt. If you need the txt, let me know how to generate and I will.
