I owned one of these in the late 90s, and loved it. The screen was not touch, but rather was responsive to the pen via weak RF signals. The pen also needed a battery, which ran down rather easily. (AAAA as I recall). I updated mine to run Win3.11, which included easier PCMCIA services. The writing app was really outstanding as well. It recorded the pen strokes as vectors, not as raster. The allowed it to do post-writing OCR as well as real time (which was slow and could be turned off). Was quite sad when mine finally died a few years ago.

I was in Japan at a Product Planning meeting when we were trying to name the new box. We didn''t want to confuse it with the T-Series line of "laptops" (i.e., T1200, T1600, T3200, etc.). We decided to use only 3 digits, but that didn''t seem obvious enough of a distinction, so I suggested we put the "X" on the end, to signify "handwriting".

I told the Japanese guys that, in the old days when some people couldn''t write, they would "sign with an X" (also the reason you still see an "X" at the beginning of the signature line on forms). Of course, in Japan they''ve never "signed" things longhand, so they had no idea what I was talking about. But nobody had a better idea, and they trusted me that it would "work" in the West, so it stuck: T100-X.

@bluekatt I don''t think so. A 386 and Windows 95 don''t mix welll... I wouldn''t try it unless you''ve updated the motherboard to take a newer CPU.

Reply to Dwight from Canada:

Looking at the picture of the T100X internals, I see what appears to be two batteries. One appears to be a standard size-AA while the other looks proprietary. Exactly which battery does what I do not know, but perhaps the easiest thing to do would be trying to replace the AA battery, see if maybe that helps. If not, then you might need to search Google for any identifying numbers or codes that are printed on the other battery.

Not sure if this'll be any help, but just a thought.

Any one know what the specs are for the CMOS battery? Mine is dead. Sorta hate to throw it in the garbage if I can find a replacement.
