IBM Corp has launched the lastest in its ThinkPad notebook computer range, the first to integrate the hard drive, floppy and eight times speed CD-ROM drive all in one unit. Previous models all had external floppy drives connected to the machine via cable. The 150 MHz Pentium ThinkPad 380 Series – MMX technology is optional – with 256Kb of level 2 cache and a 12.1 inch screen, is aimed at both general business users and consumers, and priced from $2,200. ThinkPads come with 16Mb RAM, expandable to 80MB, and with hard drives ranging from 1.08Gb to 2.1Gb, depending on the model. Multimedia features include Sound Blaster Pro support, 128-bit video graphic subsystem and full duplex speaker. Pre- loaded with Windows 95, they also run NT or OS/2 Warp. The machines are available through IBM resellers, while the consumer version, the ThinkPad 385D, is available at retail stores.
