Non identified Thinkpad

Hi all, anyone an idea which Thinkpad model this is? It's an IBM machine which runs windows 98. I only have this small picture and no physical access to the machine.

Something from the A2x series. 14" by the looks of it, so not a A21p/A22p. The name on the left side of the LED strip is not readable, but I think it has an 'm' on the end, so A20m, A21m or A22m.

T60 2007-QPG, T42 2373-F7G, X32 (IPS Screen), A31p w/ Ultrabay Numpad, A21m 2628-GXU

What kind of model was this at the time? Budget laptop or more business orientated?

Mainstream / workstation (outside of the A21e/A22e which was more 'budget').
Check the Tawbook.

Very nice machine anyway :D I fell in love in A22p (just before falling in love in A31p, T43 and, later, T60. My wife was somewhere in between A31p and T43 ;) )

Looks like A21m to me, if I blow up the image and run wavelet enhancements on the model number.

Was your wife model T 36-24-36? (In Europe also known as T 90-60-90)
That would fit right between T2x and T4x.

Guessing from that model having a late P3 and two P4M's, I'd guess she would run pretty darn hot! :lol:
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.
