And it may very well have been a Panasonic that had been relabeled by IBM (like
certain brand washers being made with Kenmore panels). Now that you mention the
Panasonic, it was similar to the type I had a while back. Either way, it had IBM on
the front and a P/n on the back and it worked.

Now you have me going nuts as to who I sold or gave that to. I'd love to get a
Polaroid and post it for anyone interested.
