IBM describes its sub-subnotebook as a "portable PC companion." That's pretty accurate. The keyboard is 95 percent of IBM's Thinkpad keyboard size. The 8.2-inch display matches the HP and the NEC in size (see next page). Working overtime? The claimed battery life is a whopping 16 hours with an optional high-capacity battery ($200). The standard battery lasts up to 10 hours. Specs include 16MB RAM, a 33.6 Kbps datafax modem and a slim 2.6 pounds of heft. At 131 MHz, it's a little pokey compared to the HP and Vadem Clio.
