Summary: I have recommended this laptop to others and I did buy again.
Pros: Ok, I looked at the reviews and thought I'd give one a try to see if they were as nice as others had said. When I got the box and took my first look I thought I was looking at a new machine. No wear marks, smudges or scratches. The Windows 7 setup was easy, done tons of them in the past. Has some...
Summary: Used or refurbished high-end business class laptops like the Lenovo ThinkPad T-series are often a better value than a new, cheap laptop, as long as you know what you're getting into (potential hard drive replacement or upgrade, lack of certain modern ports like USB 3.0 or HDMI). I say, go for it.
Pros: When you buy a refurbished laptop--one that hasn't been sold new in quite some time--you just hope it doesn't suck. You can live with a signs of wear, sure, but you fear intermittent malfunctions or dead pixels or a battery that is close to unrechargable. This was the opposite of that. Thinkpads ...
Cons: Once you get to the Activate Windows screen during setup, you may have the same minor concern I did: Microsoft initially reported that the product key (located underneath the battery, as promised) was out-of-date (or words to that effect), and gives you a few options, one of which is to try a dif...
Summary: was pretty worried of what kind of product i would receive, real happy with what i received. will order again.
Pros: The laptop came in excellent condition, the smallest signs of use. hardly noticeable. Came with a larger hard drive and battery than advertised. THANKS! Monitor is flawless , keyboard is clean and intact. All side ports are undamaged.
Summary: Did an RMA for exchange. Replacement is working excellently.
Pros: Excellent hardware. Linux compatibility. Great price.
Cons: The casing around the screen wasn't completely snapped on, but was easy to fix. Some minor permanent marks/scratches around the screen. No big deal. Missing trackpoint cap. Not the end of the world, but rather annoying. Battery failed first day after arriving. Not cool.
Summary: I have used a number of other laptops for work, but due to my good experience with a Lenovo a T410 that I used for quite a long time, I was clearly biased to this model over others I have used.
Pros: I am familiar with the Lenovo T410, using one for three years at a customer sight. I really liked the way the keyboard felt and I had absolutely no problems with it over the time span I used it. I needed a new laptop for home but couldn't justify spending a lot for a new one. When I saw the deal ...
Worrh every penny, a little heavy but rock solid perfomance.

Summary: Love this machine, added a second drive and now it can boot to Ubuntu or Windows. A little heavy but a solid work horse of a machine. If you do a lot of coding or word processing, this is the machine for you. Spare hi cap battery can be bought cheaper than other machines.
One of the Best Purchases ever made on newegg as far as Value
Steven S., Newegg

Summary: Buy one or you will regret it.
Pros: The T420 computer is an unbelievable deal for what you get. Everything is in top shape. I must of got lucky, or Newegg is just that awesome because the laptop I got was near A1 as clean as can be. Everything works as it should. Legendary Lenovo/IBM quality is a big plus, as well as the Price:Perf...
Cons: hmmmm.... i guess the fact that it was not free could be something... but like I said I am EXTREMELY impressed Newegg. A+++
Summary: I am currently in touch with JOY SYSTEMS (Rebuilder). I have opened a case with them and I am hopeful they will send me a DVD/RW to replace the DVD/Rom it came with. In the mean time I have replaced the ROM with a burner off the shelf and have already sold the unit.
Pros: This machine is in nearly excellent condition. The machine works perfectly.
Cons: The unit was advertised with a DVD/RW (burner). The unit came with a DVD-Rom (player). Follow up: I contacted JOY SYSTEMS (THE REBUILDER)) They sent me a DVD/RW unit for this machine...Great folks to deal with!
