IBM Thinkpad X31

Mark: Very good

Specification:

  • 1.4 GHz Intel Pentium M (Type: 2672-CBG; other versions go from 1.3 GHz up to the 1.7 GHz Pentium M)
  • 40 GB Harddrive
  • 256 MB (max is 2 GB; I've upgraded to 1GB with 2x512 MB SO-DDR RAM modules; easy access to the ram at the bottom of the notebook)
  • 12" Display (1024x768)
  • ATI Mobility Radeon (supported by SNAP)
  • Analog Devices Sound Max (supported by UniAud)
  • 1xMicrophone, 1xSpeaker, 1xLine-In
  • 2xUSB 2.0
  • 1xFirewire (not suported)
  • 1xIntel Pro/100 LAN (100 MBit/s - works with the standard Intel LAN driver)
  • 1xIntel Pro/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter (11 MBit/s - works with GenMAC)
  • 1xParallel Port
  • 1xVGA Output
  • 1xPC-Card Slot (Type 2)
  • 1xInfrared Port (never used using eCS nor OS/2)
  • 1xConnector for a docking station
  • 6 Cell battery (allows up to 4 hours continous work)

It's a subnotebook, so it has no buildin CD/DVD-ROM. The installation is a little bit tricky. You can try to boot eCS from a USB-Key (like I did; which is also tricky) + connect an external CD-ROM drive (I used the PC-Card connected SONY PCGA-CD51 from my old Sony Vaio PCG-505X subnotebook - which is even smaller than the X31). The drive doesn't power up until the driver is loaded which is why I had to boot from the USB-Key first.

The other way would be: Remove the 2.5 harddrive and connect it with a 2.5" to 3.5" Adapter to your desktop computer, install the system and put the drive back into the X31. Boot, and you have a working X31 powered by OS/2 or eComStation.

German users can get the 2.5" to 3.5" Harddrive adapter from Reichelt Elektronik (it costs 1,60 EUR - the Article Number is: ATA 44-40A), a very good and cheap electronic equipment (Cables, Resistors,...) seller.

I've been using this Thinkpad X31 for 14 month now and it's great. That there is no CD/DVD-ROM drive is no issue as I install everything over the network connection if it needs to be done. The display can be dimmed by using no extra software like Jan's "Thinkpad On Screen Display" but if you like you can install it. You can get here: http://www.dfsee.com/

I've not checked the ACPI driver!
