[BUY] Looking for small old classic Thinkpad

#1 Post by anormal » Mon May 15, 2017 5:54 am

Hi guys, i am new here.
I write from the amazing Islas Canarias/Spain (please have a look in google photos)

I am new to Thinkpads. Well, i've used some of them 20 years ago when i started working in IT. But never touched one again since.

I've been looking classic models. As i love to tinker with msdos machines (still program in TurboPascal haha).

So i am feeling the need (you know how this works...) to put my hands in some classic Thinkpad.

Ideally i'd love to buy a <12" one. Don't care about processor or hd or ram. Because I'll use DOS in it. I've been researching about in
the lists in this forum looking for classic subnotebooks in Thinkpad series. And it seems EVEN there are some with screens less than 10".
For example 750p,220 and 230cs. A modern one is the 240(with celeron 300).

I don't know if this is asking too much. Or if they are superrare and very expensive. Of course i've searched ebay but found nothing.

Any hints? OR anyone has one willing to sell it? If it's not too expensive...

Thanks for your time guys! (and gals!)

Edit: I've just remembered I have a Psion 3 complete with manuals and modem. And a old winCE Compaq hand computer. If anyone is interested in trading or exchaging. Thanks!

All i can say is...... 755c!!!! Look on ebay for a little more than 3.5 seconds and you find one of these machines for dirt cheap. They are little great laptops with a tft vga lcd. Whatever you do, if youre planning to use the machine to any extent is dont buy a 's' model machine. 755c has a good screen. 755cs has a terrible lcd. Good luck with yohr find.
