BIG BLUE'S PRICEY NEW THINKPADS

Love PC bells and whistles? IBM has a notebook computer for you. On Sept. 8, Big Blue rolled out new models of its popular ThinkPad line, loaded with expensive features. There's the 750C, with a built-in speaker, microphone, and audio and graphics chips. Attach it to a portable docking station with more speakers and a CD-ROM drive, and you get full-motion video and stereo sound. With the 750P, a keyboard notebook that converts to a pen tablet, IBM is pushing handwriting recognition. Brace yourself for sticker shock: The 750P starts at $3,749; the 750C at $4,699.EDITED BY KEITH H. HAMMONDS
