Outdated sections:

Instead of mentioning for what microarch/package/CPU FSB¹ board works, those sections have random list of CPU models. W700 documentation would indicate that 800/1066MHz is going to work (as opposed to DDR2 machines that will work on 667/800MHz speeds).

¹"Bus speed" on cpuworld eg. http://www.cpu-world.com/CPUs/Core_2/Intel-Core%202%20Duo%20Mobile%20P8600%20AW80577SH0563M%20(BX80577P8600).html

Some CPUs/µcodes may require update to fix following bug https://libreboot.org/faq.html#machine-check-exceptions-on-some-montevina-penryn-cpu-laptops but no such list currently exist

What is separate T400/R400 even doing there, ditto for T500/W500 - boards are exactly the same there - are chassis significantly/noticeably different there? If differences in chassis are very few then it would be better to just merge them (and if no difference - remove one).
