Summary: Laptop did everything I was hoping for and worked great. Was looking for a good decent laptop that runs Windows 7, has a built-in camera for Skype, and good battery life. This laptop met these needs in spades. Worked great out of the box.
Summary: I purchased this laptop for my nephew and he is thrilled about the quality and specks of this refurbished unit. Folks at the Tampa-based company also communicated promptly answering all questions before the deal was completed. Thanks!!!
Great business computer still going strong after 18 months
7 November 2013
Summary: This is the business computer my work provided on my first day 18 months ago. This thing is a work horse. I keep it docked on my desk most of the time while I'm working. It's running several different programs at once for 8 to 12 hours a day while I work on projects. At the end of the day I just close the laptop and put it to sleep to have all my work exactly where it was the next day.
Summary: I have been using Lenovo Thinkpads for the past 14 years and have always been super happy. This is also a good machine but has one major drawback - "improved" bumpy touchpad.... It is rather horrible - I don't know what they've been thinking.... I purchased my Thinkpad online, so didn't have a chance to test it in advance - and now a few months into it I am super disappointed.
Summary: Have had 3 of these go out with Fan Error in past 2 years at work. Update: Found out if you blow into the vents on side it removes the dust that is stopping the fan and causing the Fan Error. That is a quick solution but means you probably need to clean the dust out of the laptop.
