WTB: 486 [Update-Pre-P2] Thinkpad

#1 Post by fissionpowered » Fri Jun 18, 2021 11:15 pm

Looking for something complete to occasionally run Windows 3.1 on. Hoping to find something with decent-enough floppy and CD-based IO.

Located in US (DC area).

Edit: I'm all set. Thanks for the replies!

I have a very nice Thinkpad 500. 486 50 mhz cpu, has Windows 3.1 loaded. Its a mini laptop predecessor to the 701 series and has a monochrome display. Fully set up with a pcmcia network card. Haven't had it out for a couple years and would like to maybe find it a better home. Not a junker.

Thanks for the reply. After a few days of scouring spec sheets, I've decided an early-ish Pentium would better fit my use case (486 nostalgia be darn).

So I'm out of the market again for the moment.

I may be looking to thin the herd a bit. I have a couple earlier Pentiums that I wouldn't mind parting with, my 365XD for example. LMK what you think...

A decent T23 with PIII Tualatin should not be sneezed at!

I love the late PIII's! I just happen to have a desktop (1GHz Coppermine that I'm looking to swap a 1.4 Tualatin into someday) that suits my needs at the moment.
