IBM ThinkPad A30p

IBM ThinkPad A30p

Mark: Very good

I have been using this TPad A30p with eCS 1.1 +FP4 with almost no problems for over 4 years. All of the hardware that would be expected to work does!

The exceptions:

  • Built-in Win-Modem does not work.
  • Never tried the Infrared connection. Don't know of any drivers.

Does work:

  • WiFi works great!
  • USB works with everythink I have tried: SanDisk 'Cruzer Mini', xD, SD via SanDisk 12:1 card reader; FujiFilm S5000 camera attaches directly and looks just like a removable HD.
  • Optional diskette, Combo DVD/CD/CD-RW works as good as the RSJ software and drivers do.
  • Has COM ports, but never tried to use.
  • PCCard modem: IBM 56Kbps FAX/Data works for dial-up internet.

Started with 3-year on-site warranty upgrade, extended for 2 more years. Failues during first 3 years: Display [next day replace], 40MB HD [replaced by IBM w/60GB n/chg]. Service/support has been excellent.
