I just wanted to document this rarer laptop from I believe 1995. I see almost nothing online about it. I will be doing a benchmark soon and will do an additional after upgrading the processor. The ram might be upgradable by desoldering its current package but I'm iffy on exploring that option.

Seems to have Sound Blaster Vibra S CT2504 And a Cirrus Logic chip for video. cmos chip is a MT5LC2568DJ-12. 430tx intel chipset supports 64mb cahced ram and 256mb of ram. The most likely highest compatable cpu is a p54cs 150mhz. Has the same core and i/o voltage as the 75mhz cpu.

SB Vibra + CL video is a great combo for retro gaming. The screen is disappointing tough... I use an Inspiron 3000 for retro gaming because it has a modern TFT screen, but the Neomagic video card acts up in some dos games...

From the case, I can tell you for sure this was produced by MITAC and then sold under various brands. They used this case already for some of their 386sx-based notebooks, from which I owned two (one sold, one trashed).
