The IBM WorkPad Z50, released in 1999, was not like IBM’s other WorkPad models. It more closely resembled the Handheld PC’s of the time (not to be confused with PocketPC’s like the Jornada, or Palm Pilots.) It had a full keyboard and TrackPoint mouse, but it ran Windows CE. It offered several options like a special battery pack that you could put AA batteries in; the standard battery lasted around 20 hours though. My unit was bought in 2014 in excellent condition and the battery lasts at least 10 hours.
