is now complete and working. I had a local technician solder a new CMOS battery onto the lower board. Works flawlessly now. Boots to Windows with no error except I have the drive formatted FAT32 so it cannot create a hibernation partition so you get that error at boot but easily bypassed. Not other CMOS or memory errors. Its a 586 AMD CPU at 133 mhz. 40 megs RAM. I have a 64 meg module for it but it bluescreens. No bluescreen with the 32 meg providing 40 megs total. 720 meg original Thinkpad hard drive. The case is in decent shape. Its a bit battered but not sticky. The hard drive caddy has a crack but still works and holds in place fine. There is a screw missing on the bottom. You can see some roughness and scratches. The pictures are pretty good. See the link below.
I have a pcmcia port cover for it so all port covers are there. Windows 95 is installed with all drivers and there is a retro DOS shooter and useful period software.
I have all accessories for it except the parallel port cable. It has a battery (dead) in a canvas carrying case, external floppy, original wallmount AC adapter specifically made for the 701C, and the port replicator. New CMOS battery so it keeps time. There is a pcmcia network card installed and configured so you can easily move files to it on a network. This is Bill Morrow's machine (at least the motherboard-some of the chassis parts are from my collection) he sent to me to refurbish and it has taken me a year and a half but finally got it done. I am going to put an asking price of $750 but willing to discuss. I am pretty sure you will not be seeing many, if any, more of these ever.

Happy to answer any questions and I do now have another machine I need to assemble and some good motherboards. These will be for sale down the road.
