Fragile stickers translate to "kick me" in Chinese. Have you ever seen that Samsonite advertisement with the gorilla ? It should be on youtube (if you have a vpn.)

I'm serious. If you could carry a package three feet then set it down, they will drop it on the floor and kick it the three feet instead. Sometimes they back up and drop it from ten feet away so they can get in more kicks. Even the cans in the grocery store - look at them some time. They are all dented to hell.

I keep feeling like I'm the last person on earth to have one that's both complete AND pretty minty inside and out. They always show up with one of the two missing.

So gravedigging, since I spotted this. That is not the 800. My 800 says "Power Series 800" on the front, but otherwise looks almost the same as an 850. And, according to some IBM internal stuff I was leaked, that's not a coincidence; the "800" was the original incarnation of the 850, called Woodfield, and then IBM decided to bump the clock speed and make some other minor changes to create the GA-released 850, which was Woodfield Prime. In fact, IBM never called it an 800 in any documentation, just a Type 6020.

Here are some pics of another 800, courtesy of the OS/2 Museum. My 800 is the same, except it has "TP850" stickers on it (now you know why), and it has the camera. http://www.os2museum.com/wp/ibm-power-series-exotica/

I really have no idea what model that is. I didn't think any of them had a built in floppy drive.

There was a type 7007 model N40 manufactured for IBM by Tadpole, with a 50 MHz 601 in it. I think the pictured unit is this model.

That seems likely. Always wondered how the N40 was related to the Acer Hillcrest.

Probably not very. This is the most information on the Hillcrest I was able to find, which strongly suggests the Acer was built around the 7011-220 logic board, which uses an RSC processor (apparently a reduced-capability, single-chip implementation of POWER1) at 33 MHz. The article mentions only the US BLM as committed customer (to implement an automated cadaster system).

The ThinkPad 800 used the less-capable PPC603 processor, which aside from its slower clock, also has smaller L1 caches than the PPC603e in the 850.

Sorry to dig an almost 3 years old post...

hmmm i got the spare cash for this but hmm will see :)
:shock: :shock: :shock: wow! that ALPHAbook really looks good!! what a lucky bidder got that nice package :) does it mean all these interesting things only available in US and Europe right? how about Asia? is it possible? i can only imagine Japan maybe..

Since a few weeks, I have been in possession of an Alphabook, with a yellow block at the end of the power cord. The accessories which came with it (bag, floppies, documentation, SCSI terminators) match those from this auction; it might be the very same machine, unless all Alphabook came with them (but given there was a Sun DD50 SCSI-1 terminator among the accessories, this is very unlikely).

This is quite an odd machine. It has the same form factor as a Tadpole SPARCbook but completely different connectors, and a dock giving access to more; but the LCD, the 2x16 information panel, the keyboard, the disk and PCMCIA slots are the same. The two memory slots in the battery compartment are the same, as well. This machine having 128MB, it has two 64MB SIMMs which are actually two 32MB SIMMs glued together...
