ALWAYS get the machine type and model number and the serial number, THEN check the IBM web site, AND call IBM for a warranty status check.. that way you'll know if the machine has been reported stolen or if it has been registered to a user..
also, you can learn the manufacture date..
i don't THINK there is a P-266 TP-600 machine with a 14 inch display..

I thought that only the 770 models had 14" screens. Is the guy stepping up the screen size one step or is there such models. If not the model I've been offered is propably the 12" model. I seem to recall that there was an old modell with 33,6 modem and 12" screen.
