The SXGA+ screen is also available brand new from a few seller - an interesting option since the backlight can go bad with time. I paid $85 including shipping for mine.

The "mini tablet" thing is just the wording used by the seller. This is a normal X60 tablet/laptop hybrid, the problem is it is a 6363-2AU model with a L2400 processor with max. speed of 1.66 GHz. During my quest for a SXGA+ X60 tablet I learned that all the working panels were released with the high-end 1.83 GHz processors, probably to be able to drive the higher resolution panel smoothly, and if I remember correctly the 1400x1050 panel is reflected in the model number using an 'A' as fifth character, like XXXX-AXX. Mine is 6364-A14. So your suspicions are likely correct, you might need to return that laptop if you already bought it, unless it happens to be one of the few lower-resolution models that do work with Libreboot. It's kind of unusual that you were able to find a Thinkpad X60 tablet advertised in Mercadolibre. In the end I bought mine from ebay, and even there the SXGA+ variants are very rare and the few sellers who advertise the higher resolution as a selling point are knowledgeable enough to raise price considerably. Wish you luck.
