I recently created a website where people can donate Thinkpads to be used in Africa (see my signature). I'd appreciate assistance via this forum in spreading the word about this program.

this is the second xmas that i have been ripped off....totally unfair.
IBM ThinkPad 600x-Pentium !!! 500MHz, 384MB
IBM WorkPad z50-MIPS 131MHz, 16MB
Not a seller ... just a buyer ... have purchased (among many other computer related items), 5 IBM ThinkPads (3-T21's & 2-T22's - for family & friends) ... all arrived in very good to excellent condition (2 from CDA, 3 from USA - all were corporate lease returns) ... all 5 of 'em are still in use several hours per day with no problems.
Work- Sadly, the ThinkPads have gone away...... and replaced by HP ProDesk SFF drone machines
Other Projects- Edge 15, Z61m (Titanium)
Historic Retired ThinkPads- T42p, X20, A31p, 701c, 760XD, WorkPad C505
HP 2530p L7400 1.86Ghz 3GB 160GB Windows 7 Pro 64
(Hubby) HP 2510p U7500 1.06Ghz 2GB 5K120GB 12" LED WXGA XP Pro

I have been only a buyer and never a seller, and have bought 9 Thinkpads on eBay.
Dell OptiPlex 5040 SFF (Core i5-6600); HP 8300 Elite tower (Core i7-3770)
Acer ET322QK, T272HUL; Bolva 40BL00H7; Crossover 404K; Dell U2715H, U2711, D2015Hf; Monoprice 10734; QNIX QHD2410R; Seiki Pro SM40UNP
buy only- never sold.
I'm up to 57 thinkpads to date, over the course of a year and a half.
mostly A-series, dozen T-series, a half dozen i-series.
most are 500 to 850MHz systems;
95% are exc. cond., stable; It is my opinion that if taken care of, these ThinkPads will last FOREVER.
My 12 yr old son, 14 yr old daughter and 20 yr old son in college are my field-testing operatives (as well as friends and other family).
note: still have 3 dozen just to play with (or sell locally at cost)

member since 2001, 137 feedbacks from buyers.
edit: I'm back almost a year later just to toot my tiny horn a bit.
I now have:
-99.2% feedback- Even though I've received a significant proportion since last time, who knows how eBay figures the percentage.
-276 feedbacks received
-155 feedback from buyers
I've left feedback for 320 transactions...looks like a ton of people didn't leave feedback in my early eBay days!
