I'm not sure what kind of IBM Thinkpad this is. Maybe it's a i-Series or something as it has the name on it. It's pentium III with Microsoft Windows Me. It has 9Gig space which is more then my other Ranger laptop. The screen is okay but the slide screw is broken so you'll have to be careful when you open up the laptop. The keyboard feels fine as I'm typing this but I'm new to using the IBM joystick stuck at the middle of the keyboard and a bit slow when using it. The keyboard layout is almost the same as my other laptop.
I think other then the broken screw the IBM thinkpad is a-okay. I don't know why anyone will want to throw it away unless they're rich enough to just throw something out even though it's a bit broken and prefer to buy a new better laptop. In the end this Thinkpad is use by my nephew to play games etc. I don't have to worry about my own laptop being screwed up by them deleting my important files. It's always a constant worry for me when I let my 3 nephews play around with my laptop. But, I kind of like this Thinkpad. Pretty cool. Pretty smooth. Have to see if my brother-in-law will let me have it. But, I don't think so. He'll want to play around with it since he don't have a laptop of his own.
Well, anyway. Time to finish up this blog and surf around and check out what more this baby can do. CHioz!
