The IBM P70 is a portable Model 70 in a rather unconventional design. It's meant to be a portable computer, but it's definitely not a laptop or a notebook. Instead, it's more like the 'suitcase-design' cases with integrated LC display panel that allows integration of a standard PC main board. The P70 is however much thinner, therefore only allowing two expansion boards, and one of them only offers space for boards of half length.

The display is a plasma display, a popular choice for portables at that time, since it allowed far higher display contrasts than the STN or DSTN LC displays available at that time. The bad thing is that such a plasma display consumes a lot of power, so battery-based operation is impossible.

The P70 is built mostly out of 'standard' PS/2 components like the ESDI disks with integrated interfaces and PS/2 parity SIMMs, so it's possible to swap some components with a desktop Model 70.
