I just picked up a Toshiba Satellite 335CDS which is identical in specifications to that 385XD for a bit over $100 with shipping on ebay, and it has a 56k modem and 10/100 NIC and a 4 gig hdd. The port replicator on yours is largely excess baggage. Nevertheless since yours is a Thinkpad I could see ...

I had a 380Z once where somebody had carefully covered the whole thing with black enamel. It had been sprayed very carefully and looked like a custom car finish. I received it like that from an ebay auction.

Like painting a mustache on the Mona Lisa. I believe the paint is rubberized like swimming pool paint. There is an idea; paint it robins egg blue like the bottom of a pool.

cuiinc says it makes the 701 much faster. The reviews Ihave seen from the people who have done the upgrade say it is about like a Pentium 75. I am not sure if it is a true 32 bit Pentium class processor or just a 486/133. I will probably still wind up doing the upgrade some day myself.

He just put up one of the 133s yesterday: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=3715&item=6731416185&rd=1 I did the complete strip-down build up on the 701C, and if I can do it anybody can.

My 701C Sold on ebay. I kind of hate to see it go but I applied the money toward a 240x I just got yesterday. It is about the same size and actually has decent power. Thanks to everybody for his or her interest. On the 133 motherboards I just had a series of emails with the proprietor of cuiinc and ...

Thanks for the advice and taking your time to help. You are absolutely correct in your thought process for somebody who wants to move merchandise on ebay consistently. However, it would break my heart to have to send this to somebody for $40. I am indifferent whether it sells or not and if nobody is...

The motherboard is strictly an end user installation item. You would have to install it. I can hook you up no problem with the guy. He is in the Pacific Northwest near the Canadian border. Just go to ebay and search for a seller named cuiinc. He always has stuff posted just post a question to one of...

Yes I am connected to cable modem via wi-fi and it is not too bad. It is pokey but useable. Just for old times sake I took it to work on Friday and typed a document on it using Word 97. It worked well; no keyboard hesitation although 640 x 480 takes some getting reaquainted. Mp3s are not possible bu...

Not quite. The Cs is the DSTN (passive screen) version and the C is the TFT (active screen) version. Both came in either a DX-2 50 mhx or a DX-4 75 mhz version.

In my humble opinion no Thinkpad collection is complete without a Butterfly. I did confirm the wi-fi card is only compatible with Windows 98SE and above. I will let everytbody know how the second battery works when it arrives.

The hard drives are modular. You flip the battery switch pop out the battery and the hard drive caddy slides out with no tools. Here is a link to a picture I just took. I am more than happy to leave the OSes on the hard drives. If you will give me a Keycode I will even put fresh on for you. I put th...

Above is a link to the old auction with an actual picture of the Butterfly with the Bliss desktop from Windows XP I converted to .bmp for Windows 95. Also a picture of the carry case and the floppy.

I have been an Organizer user for years. I am a lawyer and it is my calendar program. 6.0 has some issues with XP SP2 apparently. One of my associates had trouble with 6.0 is when we found out about 6.1. I picked up a couple licenses at $41 each. The installation program looks a bit different than 6...

FS: Very Clean Butterfly 701C 75 Mhz 40 RAM

Unit is nearly pristine. 2 hard drives: 2 gig and 540 meg with 2 caddies. The battery is good for a couple minutes: bad memory effect in the Ni-Cad. I got an "as is" Ni-Mh from ebay on the way ($5 so my hopes are not high) and that will be included but it may be dead or it may work fine. It has a 56...
