I just got this mint 755CDV off eBay recently. All the pictures you could ever want. Best part: $69.

Good old raised logo

Image

In case you had any doubt

Image

TFT FTW

Image

Question: What is this sticker?

Image

Father-Son photos

Image

CD-ROM

Image

For blasting the Windows startup sound

Image

Hide all the ports!!!!!

Image

Or not...
Image

Insert all the PC Cards!!!!

Image

The almighty charger

Image

Some strap for the LCD?

Image

XBOX game port

Image

Where the adapter party started

Image


Black and White batteries

Image

Under the hood!

Image

Screen looks good

Image


Any tips from other 755CDV owners?

85G1878 is a TV-Tuner label for a 755: http://ps-2.kev009.com/pcpartnerinfo/ctstips/583a.htm

HMM tpvol2.pdf page 477: The computer changes to TV reception when the removable diskette drive is replaced with the TV Tuner.

Is there any advantage to a TV Tuner over just the normal Composite/S-Video in?

Isn't this the model with the removable back, for use with an overhead projector?

Demonstration pics would be nice. :D

It sure can, but I can't see how to get the back off. Also, I don't have a overhead projector :-)

I think the absolute best part is that the clock battery held it charge, only 4 hours behind.

The only problem is the cd rom doesn't work. Found some NOS on eBay for cheap and will replace it.

Nice!

My sister once had a college professor with a 755CDV. She said his lectures were boring but was amazed at the laptop he put on top of the projector. :lol:
