IBM ThinkPad 570e - My Gaming Rig

#1 Post by dabhidhuaghd » Sat Apr 20, 2024 6:45 am

I was fortunate enough to be given this IBM ThinkPad 570e by my Mother-in-Law:

She bought this computer back in 2000, when it was the best thing you could buy off the shelf. It came with the optional docking station including a DVD-ROM drive! It also seems to have been upgrade from the standard 64MB of RAM to the maximum 320MB.

This beast comes with a 500MHz Intel Pentium III, 320MB PC100 RAM, a 12GB HDD and 13.3" TFT display with 1024x768 resolution.
Read More at ThinkWiki https://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:570E and WikiPedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IBM_ThinkPad_570.

The laptop itself doesn't include any floppy disk or optical media drives so the docking station is quite useful. The docking station can also hold an additional battery for longer outings.

This machine, when running Windows 98 SE, is great for all DOS Games (except those which depend on a slow processor) and plays any Windows game, that's not too taxing up to 2005ish.

I think this is a great 90's gaming computer and would recommend it to anyone.

Very nice system! :thumbs-UP: The pictures don't show up inline, because the hosting site is HTTP, which is considered unsecure. I can still view them by right-clicking -> open in new tab, and manually confirming the security exception. If you want them to appear in the post, you can upload them to one of many free image hosting services (Imgur, Postimages...)

Thank you very much for your helpful reply. I signed up with postimage, uploaded the photos and corrected the original post.
I did wonder why it wasn't loading for me. Thanks again for your help.
