$1200USD is required to get a T42 and docking station.
It should also be mentioned that ACPI support will be useful not for laptops, but also i386/amd64 desktops and servers by providing better support for interrupt routing.
Please donate through Paypal by sending money to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Update: Here are some photos of Marco and Jordan's mini ACPI hackathon: 1, 2, and 3.

This work is very important and many of us really want to get him this hardware. Everyone with a laptop running OpenBSD will likely benefit from marco's work. Unfortunately no individual has yet stepped up and given him one. So I have started a pool to buy him one. We need approximately $1200 USD to get him a T42 + docking station (which is required to get a serial port for kernel hacking). If you want to help get marco a Thinkpad, please donate via PayPal to email@example.com. I've personally donated $100, and a number of other OpenBSD users have donated similar sums already. Remember that the Euro is quite strong vs. the US dollar at the moment, so Euro donations go even further. I'm afraid I don't have the resources to deal with anything other than PayPayl, so you if you can't use PayPal, sorry. Any money left over from the laptop donations will be given to the OpenBSD project. Please feel free to email me any suggestions or inquiries, and of course spread the word!
