I thought you got rid of your cache of 701C parts or I would have PM'd you. I already have an upgrade board with the memory chip (that's 133 MHz and 64 MB, by the way). I would like to get a couple NiMH batteries, one of the new keyboards, a good TFT screen for the 701C (perhaps in a parts machine, some hard disk caddies, and a few accessories and cables. If you find your stash, I would be willing to drive down I-20 from Augusta to Eatonton and pick it up, and perhaps make you an offer for all of it. You would have to verify that you at least have the NiMH batteries, new keyboard and screen to make it worthwhile to burn the gas.
You'll probably want to pull the batteries out of the systems anyway before they leak and ruin the computers.
Thanks for the offer, and let me know by email or PM,
i normally do/did pull all the batteries..
i DID have a bunch of NOS but i need to ask my assistant if we packed those or dumped them..
72meg.. 64meg memory part + 8meg on board..
and you're right, 133mhz..
ok, i just spent about an hour+ digging through boxes..
found: museum qual 701C with IM leather folio case, thinkpad 860 power PC, 770Z museum, a whole bunch of 750,755 thinkpads..
the upgrade parts for the super 701C, caddys, HDD doors, trackpoint caps of all kinds, the spare UXGA display for my T60p, and other misc things but NO batteries at all..
so i must ask if these were packed (see above) and its too late to do that this AM..
if you want to drive and fish through this stuff you are welcome..
