My collection of Thinkpads

#1 Post by WarMachine » Sat Feb 11, 2017 6:48 pm

Hello,

I said recently I wanted to make a book with pictures of my laptops. It's done ! :)
The pics aren't of premium quality, but I don't have a super camera and I'm not particularly good at making pictures... It's nonetheless correct, I think.
I didn't want to put all the pics in that topic, because there are a hundred of them. I wrote an article on my blog, and you can read it here :

I hope you will enjoy it ! :)

Unfortunately I cannot read French (and Google Translate never truly does justice to the original text), but it was enjoyable looking at all the photos. It inspires me to do something similar. :)

Nice writeup!
At the end I saw you are looking for a few more collectibles.
I have an X200s with 1440x900 LED, and several 14.1" and 15" R52 machines for sale.
PM me if interested.

Hello,

Thanks ! :)

@ RBS : I note that you have some machines you are willing to sell. I've already bought three machines last month. :) So I will wait for the next month. :) I would be interested in your X200s.

Have a good day. :)

Hello,
I added a little video to show the opening and the closing of the 701Cs, with the retractable keyboard ! :) :banana:

Nice collection! :D

My Thinkpads are battered and well-worn (esp this X220 I'm typing on), but still functional. I'm not one to overly emphasize aesthetics, but I feel a bit guilty when I see Thinkpads in great condition.

I know have a Thinkpad collecting itch, but it's staved off by a number of factors:

1. Lack of funds and outright stinginess :lol:
2. Lack of variety in locally-available units (and overseas shipping is costly, related to #1)
3. Pragmatism -- I got a 560E with a broken screen for free, but don't wanna spend any more for something that I can't use for my daily tasks. I may "upgrade" it with a Raspberry Pi, or similar single-board computer, though turning it into a standalone monitor/keyboard dock may prove just as useful. :twisted:
Daily driver: X220 4291-P79 i5-2520M

In reserve: X61 T7500, X60 T2300
In pieces: X60s CS U1300 [board only], two retired but working X61Ts
RIP: 760XD 9546-U9E
