    The portable system's large 540MB or 810MB user removable SCSI-2 hard disks make it ideal for professionals that need to work with multiple operating systems. With a quick change of the HDD and reboot of the system you can be in any of the available development environments as they become available. A external SCSI-2 port makes attaching additional 1GB and 2GB external hard disk drives a snap.

    With the optional G10 Graphics with Motion Video Adapter, portable system output computer graphics on any National Television Standards Committee (NTSC) television monitor or projection system. Also, computer graphics can be superimposed on live video and sent to a video recorder. This feature, along with the integrated business audio, makes portable system an ideal system for multimedia business presentations.

    The portable system is one of the first notebook computers that has a built-in motion video camera, and full multimedia support provided by; built-in CD-ROM, built-in audio, and motion video I/O capabilities. All this capability comes in a sleek eight pound system that also satisfies the requirements for U.S. Energy Star compliance.

    The portable system satisfies requirements for U.S. Energy star compliance. In addition, hardware and operating systems have been designed to provide customers with the Rapid Resume feature from suspend mode. That is, the portable system can automatically conserve power and yet preserve the ability to resume operation from suspend mode based on: any key pressed on the keyboard, real time clock alarm, or a ring indicator on the serial port. This last type enables the portable system to receive FAXes without user intervention.

    Note: Power management software is provided by the operating system, and may vary with different operating systems. Refer to supported operating system manuals for further detail.

    Investment Protection

    Limitations

    • The portable system has two memory slots per system. Using 4MB, 8MB, 16MB, or 32MB IC DRAM optional feature cards up to 80MB of system memory is possible.

      • IBM ThinkPad 4MB IC DRAM card PN-07G1420 not supported

      • IBM Japan 4MB IC DRAM card PN-06G9242 not supported

      • The customer must take care when selecting third party IC DRAM to insure compatibility with portable system

    • Using DIMM (Dual In-line Memory Module) technology, the Portable system implements one 16MB Memory Modules as its base memory.

    • Audio functions are supported in operating system environment only. Support may not be provided in all operating systems.

    • G10 Graphics with Motion Video is supported in operating system environment only. Support may not be provided in all operating systems.

    • Power management function is implemented in the operating system environment which will affect the expected battery life.

    • The system has been designed so the customer can install or remove the PCMCIA card without turning off the system if the PCMCIA card and operating system selected supports this function. Refer to the instructions that come with the PCMCIA card.

    • When the system is working under some operating systems, removal and installation of a PCMCIA card may not be supported during the power-on state.

    • When installing two Type II PCMCIA communications cards in the PCMCIA slot, there may be some cable interference that allows only one card to be used.

    • Divice drivers for Intel processors supplied with PCMCIA cards will not work. Customer must insure that PowerPC device drivers are available for the card.

    • PC Card point enablers may write directly to the hardware, bypassing Socket and Card Services. Writing directly to the hardware may cause problems that cannot be anticipated. Point enablers may interfere with Client Device Drivers that do communicate with Socket and Card Services. Additional customer testing in their specific environments is recommended.

    • Maximum data transfer rate of the Built-in double-speed CD-ROM drive is approximately 300KBpS when used with the portable system.

    • Customer installation of the G10 Graphics with Motion Video Adapter is not supported. The function can only be installed at the point of manufacture or at an authorized service facility.

    • The IBM Keyboard/Mouse Y Connector accessory is required when attaching an external keyboard and mouse to the system via the external input device port.

    Suspend Mode Operational Considerations:

    The computer can enter Suspend mode when the PCMCIA card uses one of the following operating systems:

    • AIX Version 4 For Clients

    • Windows NT Workstation

    Note: Removing or installing PCMCIA cards during Suspend mode is not recommended. Also the Suspend mode capabilities are operating system dependent.

    Security, Auditability and Control

    Standard Security Features

    Passwords

    • A power-on password (POP) helps protect the system from unauthorized use. If a POP is set, the password prompt appears:
      • Each time the system is turned on
      • When the system is returned to normal operation from Suspend mode if implemented by the operating system.

    • A Supervisor Password provides a higher level of security than the POP. The Supervisor Password helps protect the system functions from being used by unauthorized users and helps protect the hardware configuration from unauthorized modification. If a supervisor password has been set, the system will prompt the user to enter a password when trying to access Configuration or Start Up sequence sub-minues of Easy-Setup.

    • The user can use the hook on the locking mechanism to a leash with a user selected padlock and chain or cable.

    • Vital Product Data (VPD) enabled. VPD is a software system identification.
    World Trade Security Considerations:

    The Portable system system supports an icon-based interface for the above security features that eliminates the need for National Language translation. The Customer will select icons from easily understandable menu to configure the system and set passwords.

    National Language Support is also dependent on the operating system used. Please refer to the OS manuals to determine support for a particular country.
