Do you long for the laptop that has everything? Meet the new IBM ThinkPad 760CD. Special circuitry lets you show VCR-quality video that fills its 12.1-inch active-matrix display, an industry first. Other features include a keyboard that slants for more comfortable typing, stereo sound, a 90-megahertz Pentium processor, and a 1.2-gigabyte hard drive. The lithium-ion battery gives a claimed 3 to 9 hours of use, and you can easily swap the CD drive for a second battery without tools. All of this weighs in at a hefty 7.4 pounds. But if you can afford the $7,500 price tag, maybe you can hire someone to carry it for you.
