IBM Thinkcentre S51 preloaded with eComStation 2.0


This IBM ThinkCentre model is one of the most OS/2 compatible desktop computers recently manufactured. IBM ThinkCentres are top quality desktop computers.

This desktop computer is configured to boot either Windows XP or eComStation. The eComStation installation provides as complete support as possible on a modern laptop.

The Suntan Special Advantage

Obopeep comes with Suntan Special. I use Suntan Special to install the software on all Blonde Guy computers. Suntan Special software can be used to install all updates to the system and its applications and to install additional applications. When newer versions of software are released, Suntan Special can keep your Blonde Guy computer up to date.


The computer is set up to network via ethernet and has been set up to configure automatically.

The computer has been upgraded with a 250 GB hard drive. This drive is faster than the original drive. Benchmarks are provided on the specification page.


The USB ports do not work under eComStation.

Windows XP

This computer has the Windows XP preload as supplied by IBM. Both Windows XP and the original IBM Rescue and Recovery may be selected from Boot Manager.

The Windows XP installation is the original IBM preload. When you first start Windows, it will run through its introductory screens, allowing you to name the computer and your user account and to select the administrator password.

IBM Rescue and Recovery can be used to maintain the Windows XP installation.
