The EduQuest series of computers was developed by IBM – later Lenovo - and designed for the educational field. These computers had about 4MB of RAM, a 25Mhz processor and ran the Windows 3.1 operating system. These computers were released in the early 1990s. In total, there were eight models in the EduQuest series: the Thirty, Thirty-cs, Thirty-five, Forty, Forty-five, Fifty, Fifty-cs and the Fifty-five. When these computers were introduced, they were lauded by educators for their design and functionality. These systems have built-in, high-resolution (by 1994 standards) monitors; a small desktop footprint and a single plug to the wall. The computer mouse could not be disconnected from the unit without a special tool and the mouse trackball and keyboard keypads were non-removable. As for learning, the systems had a front audio panel with two headphone jacks, a microphone jack for audio in, a volume control and built-in speaker.
These computers use the IBM 486 SLC2 microprocessor and have 4MB internal memory and up to 342MB of memory on disk.
