Beauty.

Ahhh...the P4M. The only processor that had its prioritys out of whack.

1: Heat surroundings
2: Overheat
3: Do work

Good ol' IBMs still running strong!
Welcome to the jungle, we have FrankenPads
If you want it you're going to bleed, but that is the price to pay
And you're a very rare mobo, very hard to get
You can see the blinky lights, but you won't get them for free.

Especially when people see it and think I dropped the laptop :D .

You know at the time never really noticed :) I purchased it whilst working in Moscow (Russia) on a 3-year contract, what was great about it at the time was the SXGA+ screen
(1400x1050) which is why I purchased it... that screen was amazing real-estate and really helped my work producing Technical reports for the US Government :)

All my colleagues were deeply envious as they were stuck with USG issue T23's :)
Beauty.
I am not sure why but I have noticed a lot of fondness and love for the T30 from many quarters... it seems a rather odd 'classic' but surely it is and it ranks amongst the best!
The diagonal corner never gets old.
And then I got an X31 where they continued the great tradition!

Possibly the last of the over-engineered TP's?
