Summary: My advice is BEWARE this computer. When my old Macbook failed after 7 years of use, I decided to replace it with a PC--this one had excellent reviews, and seemed solid. However, in the time since (a little over a year), the hard drive has failed twice.
Summary: I purchased this item to replace my Lenovo T430 screen. I found that the screen is defective. It always flicks when the laptop charges its battery (at first I was not able to identify the reason. I was suspicious with the LCD cable but later eliminated this possibility).
Beggars can't be chooser - had to get this because nothing else was available
5 January 2015
Summary: I needed to get a new laptop. I'd had my old HP for 4 years and I'm a pretty hardcore business user so it was starting to have issues. I wanted to get something with Windows 7 before I couldn't get it anymore because I loathe Windows 8 and 9 wasn't on the horizon for quite some time.
Summary: This computer is not a refurbished, looks is used for a long time, the keyboard has shiny, touch panel has been the use of smooth, hard disk was used for 3000 hours, how this can be called a refurbished computer. Is used. Anyway, it is a very unpleasant shopping.
Summary: I purchased a refurbished model. Usually refurbished lenovo thinkpads tend to be in pretty good shape (T Series models) However this system only last a year then screen went blank with intermittent signs of overheating. Traded it in to a computer technician for use as parts.
Summary: I like the brand of thinkpad, so I bought this. I turned on the laptop. Everything is fine, wait... what noise? The fan is really boring. I have know other thinkpad, none of them are noisy like this. I contact the Lenovo technical support. The service is nice but useless. I updated the bios.
Summary: Let's face it: PCs tend to run cheap. And that's fine. I've been living off of $500-below laptops ever since I had my first one in college, and while they've had their issues, the issues were minor and hardly enough to push me into getting a more expensive PC or switching over to a Mac.
Summary: <1>. This machine runs fast but fan constantly makes a little noises, especially when you watch HD videos, noise becomes louder as fan accelerates. This'll distract you from what you're working on. If you can endure, fine then. <2>. Seller's arrogant. Why?
Summary: Great seller. But item does not deserve those money. I could buy a mac book for this. And have all the mac's benefits. However item feels solid and well made. But it is small and heavy. So i suspect it is well made (in case of dropping it). But for those money you could get far more then this.
