I'm selling my old IBM 760EL as I want a smaller laptop. Ideally something
just a shade bigger than a DVD case.
Definitely by IBM because they give excellent after-sales support whereas
other manufacturers stick two fingers up at their customers.

Which IBM should I have (secondhand) that'll fit the bill and which will
work with Linux and KDE? I need access to all the ports - usb, pcmcia, modem
