Re: T70 with Quad Core i7 mobo for T6x is coming!!

Yes, hats of for their ingenuity and efforts to *hopefully* keep our classics up to date hardware wise. Let's just hope they make this board available to the western world and that these boards will have a more even build quality than the T50 boards apparently had.

All is OK, it's just the fact that between a new hobby car and a new job, the Thinkpad hobby has gotten the short end of the stick since last summer. We'll talk aga...

Re: WTB: Battery for 700 / 700C, defective.

Hi Dave

When it comes to something like that, I could definitely be interested, even if I have to pay for shipping to Norway. So let me know what price we're looking into for this item, and we'll discuss the payment options and the shipping specifics.

Thanks for the offer!

WTB: Battery for 700 / 700C, defective.

Hi As I now apparently found my long sought after 700C, I would like to see if I can find a battery for it. I have no intentions of ever trying to run it off of a battery, but I'm looking to fill the open hole that's there when the battery is removed. So even if I find a battery with cells still pre...

I have a G40, and I think I might have replaced the CMOS battery there at one point. But I have had no issues, so I might confuse this with one of my other 20+ legacy systems. I better open it up and check what's in there..

Re: Thinkpad T400 on the International Space Station

When ThinkPads were made by IBM, there was a NASA/IBM "US-made" connection... I also suspect that the US-made connection in the IBM days, made the IBM Thinkpad the only logical choice.

It depends on how you define rare. I think it falls under two categories. Like George says, some machines are rare today simply because they are old and the vast majority of them are gone. The 701C and 700C probably fall under that category. Quite common back in the days, but today, the good example...
