Description
ThinkPad 750P Pentop
This is a cool computer. It's an IBM ThinkPad Pen computer with a 64 shade grayscale screen that folds up to reveal a full keyboard. I've seen a few of these now on eBay, but I think I'm the only one who's offered them fully set up with Windows 95. This includes Pen Services 2.0 and full PCMCIA Plug-n-play support. It's like a ThinkPad 730T with a pop out keyboard and SOUND!! If you're used to the 730T's monochrome 16 screen, just wait til you see the difference that a full 64 shades of gray can give you. This laptop also comes with alot of ThinkPad specific set-up software. And no need for a port replicator bar - the 750P comes with a full compliment of ports (see table below). The 750P's screen sports a textured glass writing surface which gives it a real "paper" feel. Tablet image
Processor Intel 486DX Megahertz (speed) 33Mhz
Memory (RAM) 8MB Hard Drive 170MB compressed to 250MB
Display 9.5" 64 shade grayscale Pen Passive electromagnetic
Operating System Comes with a full install of Windows 95 with Pen extensions (no manuals, or certificates)
Ports 1 PS/2 Mouse, 1 15-pin Monitor, 1 9-pin Serial, 1 Standard Parallel Port, 1 Floppy Disk Port, Docking Station Adapter
Slots 2 PCMCIA (2 type II or 1 type III)
Folding Folding image
Both the Thinkpad 730T and the Ricoh G1200s pentops use the type III PCCARD slot for their main hard drive. This makes Plug & Play support for their PCMCIA slots difficult. The 750P uses an internal HD, leaving both slots free for expansion. The internal HD is a standard ThinkPad drive - readily available and easily upgradable. The wireless PCMCIA network card pictured in the 750P's type II slot is NOT included, but the drivers for it are installed. Using the 750P in tablet mode with a wireless network card is really cool - You can get on the net and wander around your house, take it to the couch while the family is watching TV.

 
Floating KeyboardHandwriting image
Data entry is accomplished via a floating keyboard or by using handwriting recognition
The 750P uses a passive electromagnetic pen (manufactured by Wacom) which fits neatly into a compartment next to the screen. Data entry is accomplished via a floating keyboard, handwriting recognition, or open it up and type away. The keyboard features the TrackPoint used on all of IBM's ThinkPads. It may be used in conjunction with the pen as a pointing device.. The 750P has 4MB of ram on the motherboard - I've expanded that with an 4MB credit card module for a total of 8MB. The 750P takes memory cards compatable with other IBM Thinkpads, so if you're upgrading to this powerful pentop from your old 730T, you can migrate the memory. The internal HD is 170MB which I've compressed to 250MB+ and has the full install of Windows 95. I've left 20MB uncompressed for virtual memory paging.
This doesn't come with an AC adapter, but these 4 pin adapters are regularly available on eBay. The battery is a standard ThinkPad flat type and like most used ones doesn't appear to hold a charge. A new one lasts about 2+ hours on a full charge. This comes with a working (removable) 1.44MB floppy drive.

While this computer is currently in good working condition, it is not new equipment so I must offer it as-is.
