1) What pieces are broken
2) a) How are you planning to use an ISO
B) note: most drives pre-1998 are picky about burned discs.
3) 755C's are very common. You'll find one.
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.

The rear panel cover is missing (assuming it broke off, I hear that's common on these), the left lid latch is broke so the screen only latches on one side, and the left flip out foot on the bottom is missing.
Well, I was hoping to get a disc image of windows 95 and 98se so I can put them on a 3.5 floppy (for the 755c) and a cd (for my other thinkpad 2611) to reinstall it after I wipe the harddrive.
Do they have a problem with floppy's too?
and yes I'm keeping my eye out for one, thanks! :)

That would be awesome thank you!
Could we use DropBox or Google Drive?
