The Register: Confirmed: IBM to roll with Crusoe TM5400 ThinkPads this year

“IBM has demoed a Transmeta-based notebook, but officially the

notebook manufacturer Quanta Computer confirms that Big Blue will
be rolling out quantities of the beasts, under the ThinkPad 240
X-series banner, by the end of the year.

“According to a Bloomberg report earlier today Quanta will be
shipping smallish quantities of Transmeta 240s, probably using the
Crusoe TM5400, to IBM before the end of the year.”
