This portable machine was again classed as a "luggable" as it is portable but weighs more than 20 pounds.
The IBM PS/2 P70-386, released in 1989, has an Intel 386DX processor and supports up to 8MB of RAM.
The PC had a built-in plasma display and its VGA adapter could also power several different external PS/2 monitors.
The machine could run IBM PC DOS 3.3, OS/2, Microsoft Xenix or AIX PC.
Announced in October 1990, the IBM PS/2 Model 95 could be powered by a number of processors, from a 20MHz Intel 486 to a 90MHz Intel Pentium.
The model 95 has a fully interchangeable processor complex motherboard: containing the processor, memory controller and micro channel interface. It has a 32-bit Micro Channel Architecture bus.
The machine supports from 8MB to 64MB of DRAM, in eight 72-pin sockets.
The SCSI adapter can support both internal and external devices, such as hard disks, tape drives and CD drives.
The IBM Personal System/2 L40 SX laptop PC was announced in 1991.
A replacement for IBM's earlier IBM PC Convertible laptop, it was powered by an Intel 386SX 20MHz processor. In spite of being a PS/2 (which were mostly micro channel architecture) it had a PC AT bus.
It could support between 2MB and 18MB of RAM, had one 3.5-inch floppy drive and a 60MB hard disk. An illuminated VGA monochrome LCD screen served as its display.
The PS/2 LX 40 SX was later superseded by the successful IBM ThinkPad range of machines.
