Bill Morrow collection

#1 Post by hwattys » Sun Aug 04, 2019 10:48 am

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 dropbox links to pictures.

Vintage Thinkpad collection from Bill Morrow:

1. Transnote powers on no hard drive or caddy. Battery seems to hold some charge. CMOS and system batteries may need to be replaced. Pen is missing ink tip but extra in folio. Also a whole box of writing pads. I have original Windows 2000 image .iso
2. X60 tablet powers on boots to Windows 7. Nice condition. Vista Business Key Code
3. X60s powers on boots to XP. Nice condition. XP Pro Key Code
4. X301 Powers on boots to Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. Added a DVD-RW drive battery is charging shows about 1:15 runtime and replace battery message but works. U9400 4 gigs SSD 160 gigs. Vista Ultimate Key Code. Nice 1440 x 900 display. Case is in good shape but has a couple blemishes in the finish. No broken plastic. 3rd party AC adapter included. Intel 5300 wifi plus Qualcomm WWAN module.
5. Thinkpad 770 9549-1AU Dead CMOS battery 160 megs RAM no HDD powers on looks good. DVD drive with MPEG accelerator card. Have original IBM DVD software.
6. 755CDV 9545-ABK no power

Could you tell us what's the screen on the 770Z? Is it 14.1" 1024x768 or 13.7" 1280x1024?

Ugh. I was interested in the no power 755CDV, until I saw the price. Technically, I already have one. Combined the LCD from a non-working CV with parts from 2 CD's. I also have the non-existant 755CDX (800x600 on a 755CD).

Given it's a no-power machine, is the price negotiable in the future?

**EDIT** I'm also looking for some 701 battery packs (so I can use my 701 again). I don't care what condition they're in, as I rebuild them.

Will do, though I'd have to think what I'd be willing to offer.

The 340 is for sale on eBay:

https://www.ebay.com/itm/202814116152?s ... 1555.l2649

Forum member price is $200 plus shipping and I will stop the auction for an offer from this site. Proceeds go to Bill not me.

Please forgive me inappropriate questions, but can't help myself not to ask it; why is Bill Morrow's collection for sale? I tried searching the forum for some sort of news or info but failed.

Long story. But if I get your drift he is still very much with us. I had to be in Atlanta last summer and went to his house and he gave me (for the purpose of selling) the units you see listed in the post. It is not his entire collection but appeared to be a good chunk of it.

Yep, you caught my drift quite well. No need to hear the deep details, but it's good to know he's safe & sound.

PM sent. For everyone else here is a dropbox link:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/qr3y9g8he108 ... Gbb7a?dl=0

HDD cover missing (anyone have one to sell for a reasonable price). Keys are a bit worn but otherwise in good shape. The dock works-both CD and floppy drive.

Let me know if there are questions. Asking price posted above is very flexible particularly if I can ship without an AC adapter...running low.

Bill, I'd just like to thank you for this forum. I've spent many hours here, and have gotten a lot of useful information, information that has helped me learn a lot, work better, and have fun.

Just in case you log in on a slow day and check in - thank you so much for this forum! It's helped me through nearly 2 decades of ThinkPad issues, mods, questions, and I've learned a lot. What a great community and great place for those of us who appreciate truly great functional design.

All the best in 2020!

In the "It's a small world dept", Bill has either recently obtained or has recently decided to make use of his previously purchased 1970 Cadillac El Dorado coupe (no El Dorado convertibles from 1967-70). I noticed his name on the Cadillac & LaSalle club forum where I'm a lifetime member. I hope to be able to help Bill out with his Cadillac out as much as this forum has helped me with my ThinkPads.

I'm sure that's not possible but I'll help as much as i can over there.

Nice to hear from you Bill.
