Re: IBM Thinkpad 760 Promotional Images

The first desktop I purchased was an AST with a Pentium 60. I remember wishing I could afford the Pentium 120! So while old, at one point I would have died to get an LD :D


I will keep an eye peeled on the marketplace!

Happy 2022!

I installed a new keyboard in W700

Hey I know this hardly counts as news but I just wanted to say - if you have an old keyboard - swap it out if you can! The feel of new keys is amazing! I also found a family of dust bunnies which were promptly sent packing. I must say despite its rediculous size, the W700 rewards with its amazing sc...

Who still uses a TP 760 as a daily driver? How do you use it?

Kinda of a half serious thread poking some fun at the cool kid W520 thread with a similar title... making do with their gigs of ram and gons of cpu cycles... I have a 760E with 133Mhz and 48Megs of ram. The spinning disks of rust work just fine to boot and run Win95. A pcmcia CF reader with a 32GB c...

Re: IBM Thinkpad 760 Promotional Images

That is neat you worked for IBM at that time! I had an uncle that went to work for Tivoli which was or became a part of IBM around that time. He had a IBM 560 and an Apple Newton. He introduced me to the wide world of warez and it has been fun. Here is a two cd trip through memory lane. I found it o...

Re: Preserving Thinkpad ISO

So I have a working win98 a22m 2628-psu with win98 recovery partition intact. After reading about HPA I am less confident I can extract it. I can do a fresh recovery of the c drive and make an image of that for you but that is still a far cry from a recovery cd set.

Thinkpad Essentials CDs 56k will not work

Hello, I found a copy of the Thinkpad Essentials 1997 on ebay. I made iso and they are on archive.org now. They are pretty unique and filled with a lot of stuff I have never seen before. Also on the iso are installs for the thinkpads demos, training material, promotional images and material etc etc ...
