New from Big Blue, the IBM PS/2 Model P70-386. Okay, maybe not quite new. More like 1989. It may be called the IBM "luggable" though it has a monochrome plasma screen, orange!

I got this at my friend's house. His shed is full of old computers. There was some outside of it laying on the ground. Unfortunatly the 2 Apple IIe's did not fair well after sitting outside for years. Most of the stuff wasn't really any good but I did pillage some ram and processors. I also found some other thing than the luggable but did not grab it. See it here.
Specs for mine,
-486 TI processor. TI?
-20mhz
-60mb HDD
-Monochrome display
-1.44" Floopy drive

Shall I install OS/2 Warp? Or Windows 3.1 8)

The TI DLC is an upgrade processor, a '486 (minus FPU) that fits in a '386 socket. You can add a '387 to bring it up to full '486 DX functionality. BTW, I'd go with the OS/2 v. 2.11, nothing later.

If your friend can let you pillage more from him and you have the room to do it, save what you can and get it working. You could get some real showpieces that way.
