This is one of my latest acquisitions. It's a Thinkpad 340CSE 2610-DS2, which according to the Lenovo Website does not exist :| Although I can find info's about the -DS1 and -DS3 models, guess Lenovo DB wasn't very accurate in the earlier dates :mrgreen:

This one has 12Mb RAM and a 360MB, is running Win95 decently and seems to be in excellent shape! Enjoy the pics...

My first PC ever was one very similar to this (maybe 350/360 series, not sure, but the exterior was essentially the same).

It ran PC DOS 6.3 (equivalent of MS-DOS 5.0), and I had lots of fun learning about using a PC and playing some old DOS games on it.

A piece of history come to life! :thumbs-UP:

It's been a long time since I've seen one of those anywhere near this condition. A great find indeed... :thumbs-UP:

Now load W8 and enjoy the multimedia.... :lol:

What a handsome ThinkPad! It looks very very sturdy and well built. What year was this model released?

Cute. I wouldn't mind a modern machine in that chassis... Alas, no commercial laptop will ever look like that again. The closest will probably be this: http://openpandora.org/

It seems it was released in 1995, my model number is not in the Lenovo Database though... I've uploaded some more pictures in the German Thinkpad Wiki: http://thinkwiki.de/340

Really beautiful, the Bento box design is truly timeless.
