For Sale – IBM ThinkPad 760EL rare vintage laptop in mint condition

For the collectors among you, here is a very special item from my collection: this is an IBM ThinkPad dating from 1997, in full working order and restored lovingly to mint cosmetic condition.

Specs:

• Intel Pentium 120 MHz CPU
• Intel 430MX chipset
• Trident Cyber9320 video controller with 1 MB VRAM
• 12.1″ Active Matrix TFT display with 800×600 resolution and 16-bit colour (SVGA) – does support external monitors
• 24 MB RAM (8 MB built-in + 2x 8 MB modules) – expandable to max 104 MB, I believe
• 2.1 GB IDE HDD
• ES1688 Audio controller
• IrDA 1.0
• UltraBay Thick
• 1.44 MB 3.5” FDD UltraBay module (swappable)
• CD-ROM UltraBay module (swappable)
• Serial, parallel, PS/2, external floppy, docking station and analog VGA ports
• 2x Type II PCMCIA CardBus slots or 1x type III
• Lithium Ion battery (swappable)
• IBM power supply with UK plug

Latest firmware installed. Perfect support for DOS including sound in games, also supports Windows 9x, NT, Windows 2000 and other vintage operating systems such as OPENSTEP for Mach 4.2.

Machine is working well. Both the CMOS battery and the main Li-Ion battery hold a charge, but due to the age of the machine, may need replacing after a while. This has the famous lift up keyboard design where the back of the keyboard automatically lifts up a little as you open the lid, to provide a more ergonomic angle for typing.

This is a 23 year-old computer, so it’s generally in startlingly good condition, however note the following minor issues:

– The front IrDA transceiver seems to be faulty, although the rear one works. This can be replaced by the user if needed, but I never use infrared file sharing
– One corner of the top lid was damaged and has been masked by black electrical tape. The LCD itself is not damaged, it’s just a cosmetic defect.
– There was a hairline crack on the front bezel around the left UltraBay slot. I‘ve repaired this with superglue and paint, so that it’s strong and looks seamless
– I’ve cleaned the machine and tested everything I could, but I have no devices with which to test serial and parallel ports. PCMCIA slots do work if you want to add a network or SCSI card

The 760 family were top of the range laptops back in their day and some fully-specced out models retailed for over $8K. Inspired by the Japanese bento box design, they were built like tanks and with ease of maintenance and expandability in mind. The fact that this specimen looks and works great even today is testament to IBM’s engineering prowess. The UltraBay cable- and tool-free swappable design for peripherals is a stroke of brilliance.

NASA had approved the 760 family for use in space shuttle missions and they’re also used on the international space station MIR. This is your chance to own a significant milestone in the development of portable computers and/or pretend you’re and astronaut. It’s also perfect for playing classic old DOS games such as Doom, Doom II, Quake, Secret of Monkey Island and other classic LucasArts adventure titles, even early Win9x software.

Shipping will be £25 including insurance.

DISCLAIMER: Goes without saying this venerable machine cannot run any modern OS and does not feature WiFi or hardware 3D acceleration. It’s intended for collectors and vintage PC enthusiasts.

For Sale – Lenovo Thinkpad X220

For sale is a 12. 5 inch Lenovo Thinkpad X220 laptop

Intel Core i5-2520M [email protected] 2.50GHz
Ram 8GB
300GB storage
Windows 10 64bit

Battery life is not too bad at approximately 3 hours, although Ideal to use on a desk close to a wall socket. Charges fairly quickly, maybe in under 2 hours.

It’s fast and the text is fairly sharp. Ideal for MS Office, Web browsing, etc.

One issue the mouse cursor moves on its own from bottom to to top, sometimes really slowly and other times, pretty quickly. Issue developed a couple of months ago and, judging by search online, it isn’t completely unusual. The cursor is, of course, controlled easily as usual by the mouse but when the mouse is at rest the cursor will start moving. It’s not a big issue but can be quite annoying at times. Looked for a fix online but haven’t resolved it yet. Might require a drive update, or some slightly more comlex fix by someone more technical than I am. The fix really isn’t required as laptop is perfectly usuable as is.

Cosmetically it’s in good condition but has a bit of paint worn off on the back. Mainly a square inch patch and a few very tiny flecks here and there.

The track pad works perfectly but has worn out a bit, that said I prefer to use the mouse anway.

Will post recorded delivery day after payment has cleared.
