What thinkpad models that features lifting keyboard? I saw one once at a computer store when I was working there. To replace drives by pulling upwards on the wire handle. If you have one for sale that needs work, interested in one.
Reason for this, I found and bought external floppy drive with 17mm connector that opens up and you can take the internal floppy drive out and put it into thinkpad. Not ultrabay.
Thinkwiki does not mention about this interesting feature.

Well, in the realm of the ancient models, I know that the 365X and 365XD had the lifting keyboards. It was quite handy, but came at a cost. The keyboard feel wasn't really that great (flex and bounce) and the latches that secured the keyboard had a tendency to break. IIRC, they might have also doubled as the lid latches, but I gave mine away to a forum member a year or two ago, so I can't check.
Edit: here's a link to a YouTube video which shows the machine opened up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RLsbneWwvc

They ran from the TP 750 to the end of the 760 line. The 760 had a special keyboard that not just flipped up but also tilted. I know the 360/365/370 had them, not sure about the 340 or 350. 355 should have had it.
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.
The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.
