ThinkPad 235

ThinkPad 235

This page gives an overview of all ThinkPad 235 (type 2607) related topics.

This machine is specific to Asia Pacific (mainly China, Hong Kong, Japan and Korea). It was designed by RIOS, a joint venture between IBM and Ricoh, under the codename "Chandra2" or "Clavius". It was marketed under a number of different names including Ricoh Magio, Hitachi VisionBook Traveler, Hitachi Flora Prius Note 210, Epson Endeavor TK-300/TK-400, ...

It features 1 PCMCIA and 2 CardBus slots, 1 USB 12Mb/s, 1 PS/2, 1 infra/red 4Mb/s, 1 serial, 1 parallel and 1 VGA ports. The floppy drive is external (parallel port). This floppy drive seems to be the only way for an install/rescue boot ? (BIOS is in japanese). It is using two standard camcorder batteries (7.2V), allowing battery hotswap and external charge.
