Legacy ThinkPad Equivalent to giant excel spreadsheet

#1 Post by cadillacmike68 » Sun May 31, 2020 9:59 pm

Hi, is there an equivalent to the giant 24MB excel sheet with all the lettered series TPs that has the old legacy numbered ones? I'm trying to look up what the 600 and 760/765/770 series came with as far as screen & CPU. I'm looking to buy one.

I have the PSREF docs but they don't seem to have all the models.

AFAIK there is no such document.
Start here: https://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/ThinkPad_History
Then click on each wanted model in that list for specifics.

There are some documents like that on kev009. I've found some for the 365XD.

I think this should give you a nice start :thumbs-UP:
Thinkpad4by3's Law of the Universe.

The efficiency of two screens equally sized with equal numbers if pixels are equal. The time spent by a 4:3 user complaining about 16:9 is proportional to the inefficiency working with a 16:9 display, therefore the amount of useful work extracted is equal.

This spreadsheet doesn't have MTM's, but it does has some specs on old thinkpads.
It's not complete, but it is more than I have done.

I wish I knew of a program that can strip data and put it on a spreadsheet.

1. You can save the complete webpage into *.html file/folder set, then point your MS Excel to open the *.html file created,
and voila, it's imported into MS Excel file format!

ie: we used Internet Explorer to open this webpage:
www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/thinkpadspecs.html
[File]>>[Save_As]>>[Webpage,_complete,_*.html,_*.htm]

Then in MS Excel:
[File]>>[Open] to open the *.html file your Internet Explorer had created.

Finally, after you've opened this *.html file while in MS Excel:
[File]>>[Save_As] and save it into MS Excel file format (either *.xlsx or *.xls).

2. Many thanks for your URL link; it's definitely a keeper!
***BUT it's still missing minor bits of information. eg: our T42 had 3G mobile broadband WWAN option on it, but this webpage did not mention it.
Anyways, it's a very complete hardware spec for older ThinkPads! Thank you!

Thanks, that's a great page. I downloaded it and converted it to an excel, cleaned it up some and increased the text size so I could see it. This, combined with the old IBM PSREF will be a big help.

Glad it was use for you all.
I didn't know Excel can open up from HTMl files, I did a simple copy and paste, but sometimes it won't work on some of these sites so I would have to modify it w/ word and then excelt or google sheets.

Just have the page loaded and then (in firefox) File / Save Page As. Give it a name and select Web Page Complete. It will save as an HTML or HTM file. Excel will open it and put everything in cells.
