The 5140 is the IBM convertible computer released in 1986, two years after
the 5155. A real nice machine, BTW. Closer to a true portable (weighs in
at about 12 lgs.) than the previous luggables by IBM, Compaq, Kaypro, et.
al. Also one of the first (not sure of what I speak here) with a LCD screen.
For a picture and complete specs go to:
