There are indeed nice machines (I've got a Z600RE).  However, the Z600
series has been end-of-lined for some time now (replaced by the R600)
so you'll only be able to pick them up second hand.

I'm not sure how well FreeBSD runs on the R600 range - my wife runs
Windows-XP on hers and won't let FreeBSD anywhere near it... :-)
