The Siemens-Nixdorf PCD-4ND is a typical notebook with 486, color VGA LCD and trackball. It was offered in few configurations, with expandable RAM, a VGA (640x480) display and a cute trackball. This particular model came with the DX4 75MHz processor and 12 megs of RAM, a Dutch Windows 95, Microsoft Office and a few tools.

Sometimes has problems starting up video, needs to have its lid closed and then re-opened, as can be seen in the last image, and is most likely caused by a failing display ribbon, but it’s the only issue that this tank has after 25 years, German engineering at its finest.

It comes with floppy disks and PCMCIA connectivity, so it should work fine connecting to the Internet. It also has nice multimedia options, including headphones and microphone jacks, and even separate PS/2 connectors for an external mouse and keyboard.
