Re: WTB - w701ds

You can set a notification in eBay. I have had one set for w700ds and w701ds for several years. I missed one a while back that sold around $500 give or take from a liquidator in Evansville, IN. I missed getting in and bidding at the last minute. Otherwise $1000 or more I am afraid.

Bill Morrow collection

After dealing with a family crisis for the last several weeks I had a chance to unpack the boxes picked up at Bill's house. I will update in bold as I work on these and get them ready to pass on to the next owner. Once ready price will be adjusted to closer to what I think is market price. PM me for...

Re: WTB - w701ds

Even a w700ds is worth some serious money so you might be best off to sell it and put it toward a w701ds. Most enthusiasts are in exactly your position-would love to have a w701ds but the prices are outrageous. There just were not very many of them ever made I fear.

Just picked up a couple boxes of vintage Thinkpads from Bill Morrow. I know there is a 755CDV and a 770X or Z and a 760C or CD among them. I have yet to unpack and catalogue but will be doing that this weekend. Will post back. Stay tuned.

Re: FS: Vintage IBM ThinkPad s30&driver/MirageBlack/XP/Piano Finish/RARE!

That's just good old eBay marketing. Put phrases in the title you know a lot of people are looking for and maybe it will draw in more lookers. Kind of like the part of Forrest Gump where he takes money to endorse the ping pong paddles "just a little white lie...don't really hurt nobody."

Re: [WANTED] vintage 750c LCD Inverter Board

PM me looks like you want 2 160 meg hard drives, a 16 meg DRAM card and a keyboard. I have turned my man cave upside down for a battery and am starting to recall I got rid of them when we moved a couple years ago. Sorry.

The hard drives and memory card and keyboard would be cosmetically as new.

Re: [WANTED] vintage 750c LCD Inverter Board

Well these laptops were like $5000 in the day and the removeable hard drive was touted as allowing everyone in a workgroup to share one laptop. Each person would just have his or her own hard drive. But you could lock it in with a little metal piece that slid out.

I know I have HDD, dead battery, there is no CD ROM made for the 750 series unless you mean pcmcia (which I do not have) I have memory, AC adapter and pretty sure I have a keyboard. I will dig the box out of the closet and let you know in the next day or so.

Re: Buying parts for 701C: HDD caddy, bottom system board

So glad to hear of your success. I have several lower planars that I now feel its worth the effort to try soldering a new battery in place as it will revive them.
