Summary: Have bought two Lenovo T-61's for home use in the past. Have directed several friends to do the same over the years. Use similar computers at work, and they just will not die. Think it's the metallic chassis that protects the motherboard and components.
Pros: Reliable, great price, 18 month warranty, easy to use, fast. Great all around laptop.
Summary: Hard file going bad , intermittently working , would not purchase from here again, sad it was refurbished they may had wiped it off with Windex , memory, hard-file , miini-pci all original. They probably just loaded Win7 and said re-furb...beware
Summary: Trackpad has nice features but I have yet to figure out how to adjust them. Also still looking for screen adjustments.
Pros: Very clean. Setup was easy. Able to upgrade to Windows 10. Battery good for an hour or more.
Cons: Shipping was confusing (maybe from Canada) but it got here and was well packed. Just discovered some issue with the display - only after a 'restart' - screen shuts off or something. Have to shut down then power up to get screen back.
Cons: I contacted lenovo because this is supposed to have an 18 MONTH warranty! they said there is NO warranty unless purchsed directy from Lenovo! If you bought this , or any other computer you ahd better verify your warranty exists!
Cons: Charger connected but battery won't charge. 0% and holding :( Arrived with box smashed, I contacted newegg before opening. They told me to open and see if it worked. This does not count as working :(
Cons: when I booted the laptop there were 2 lines in the screen, called to RMA but would have have to ship it back and then do a refund, I just need a cheap laptop for my son for school so he is just dealing with the lines. I would think there would have a better way to handle these situations.
Summary: Does anybody do any testing before shipping things.??? This is the first return unit I have purchased from newegg that was not ready to go.. Pretty disappointed and will not recommend.
Pros: Clean. Looks hardly used
Cons: Wireless not working. Does not even show a wireless adapter. Technical support by the refurbisher is only available like two hours a day, during most peoples working hours when they do not have time to mess with it.
