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.
Current: Thinkpad 25 (20K7), Yoga 14 (20FY), X220 4291-4BG, T410 2537-R46, T60 2007-QPG, T42 2373-F7G
Collectibles: T430s (IPS FHD + Classic Keyboard), X32 (IPS Screen)
Retired: X61 7673-V2V, T60 1952-F76, A31p w/ Ultrabay Numpad

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.

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:
Probably should be Thinkpad16by10.

Looking For: 386 laptop, IBM or not.
