I have an IBM Thinkpad 701C "Butterfly" laptop. This is the laptop with the keyboard that slides out in two parts that join together into a full-size keyboard. It boots.

It's from 1995, but it's quite unusual. Are you interested?

It's a VGA display (640 x 480) with a 486 DX4/75 processor. It has 24MB RAM. It shipped with OS/2 and Windows 3.1 dual-boot, but has since been "upgraded" to Windows 95. I think the hard disk is about 260 MB.

I have the original box and most or all of the original accessories. It was hardly ever used - maybe 15 hours total, and was in good working order when I put it into storage. I'll need to get it out again and check that it's still OK.

I'd be shipping from the United Kingdom.

Here's a video of a 701C showing the way the keyboard slides:

Please check it, mainly the battery. Also write how much BTC would satisfy you for it. I think I'll have to send some pounds ev. euros by mail though.

I have a Dolch-PAC 386 if you're interested. Orange monochrome screen, made before 1994, and the first ever portable 386 PC.

Please check it, mainly the battery.
Unfortunately, my Thinkpad 701 has suffered with time. When I started it up, it reported a failed CMOS battery (not surprising after 16 years) and a memory error, and took me to the self-test ROM. This showed that everything else (including the hard disk) tested OK. I then booted and got as far as the Windows 95 splash screen before it froze up.

I will replace the CMOS battery and fix the memory problem and offer it for sale at BiddingPond, but it won't be for quite a while because I'm tied up with a lot of things right now.
