The IBM PS/2E, or 9533, is the computer I never had when I was 12. designed in 1992, it was the first energy star compliant PC IBM built, and the first PC to use recycled plastics in its chassis. It is also exceptionally tiny and contains no fans, probably because it is built almost exclusively from thinkpad components.
comes with a 486
(really a souped-up 386sx
), 4 or 8 MB of RAM
on the motherboard
, an XGA-2
graphics controller with 1 MB of RAM, a laptop
hard disk and a laptop
drive. it has a single expansion
port, in which an ISA converter or a quad PCMCIA
adapter can be inserted. It also has a socket for a 387
coprocessor and two ram slots for 72-pin parity
RAM. Since the processor is really a 386
, it can only take a maximum
16 MB of RAM.
When it was released, the PS/2E could be bought with the IBM 9507 screen, a 10.7" LCD display which was incredibly dreamy in its day. Of course, noone could afford this combo, or even the screen itself, which makes it a rare commodity these days.
