Here's the options page for
IBM memory upgrades. It's interesting to note that
IBM no longer advertises 32 MB DIMMs for the Butterfly.
(They do exist though; I have three Butterflies with
IBM part number 92G7281 DIMMs in them.)
In fact, the main
ThinkPad 701 page used to say that the maximum memory for the
701C/701CS was 36MB/40MB but now says it is 20MB/24MB.
Third party memory is available from companies including:
According to the Kingston web page, the part number for the 32 MB DIMM is KTM TP701/32. The Viking Components web page says the 32 MB DIMM part number is I7281. The other third party vendors do not offer this size. (And now apparently IBM does not either.)
Genuine IBM memory has a three warranty while the third party vendors give "limited lifetime" warranties. It also usually costs more.
I used the Windows 95 devices control panel to generate it. It's more detailed than the IBM ThinkPad Memory Maps page. This information was invaluable while configuring Wildboar.
