Is a fact that post 2008 T61p laptops are Penryn CPU compatibles. Last BIOS available is the V: 2.30 from Lenovo.
The Middleton BIOS [V:2.29] will make SATA-II functional on the SSD but it is also known that such BIOS does not fully support Penryn CPU. What is the answer for preference? Is the difference relevant?

I personally prefer the Middleton BIOS, (I have installed it in all my *61 machines). While it will probably not give you an advantage on the stock BIOS in terms of CPU support, it will remove the annoying thermal sensor error. (And as you know unlock the SATA-II speeds which comes handy if you install a SSD).
