Excerpt: This was my first laptop and I have had fond memories of it. One of the biggest pros is that it is a Windows laptop . The compatibility with Windows allows for much compatibility in software, especially those online that I download so much. The shortcuts are all there which I have been familiar with since childhood as I have always only had a PC.
Excerpt: THIS RUNS MY FUTURA SES1000. MY DELL OP.SYST. XP WAS NOT COMPATIBLE WITH U-VERSE WHICH IS WHY I PURCHASED THIS REFURBISHED UNIT. IT'S USE IS ONLY TO RUN THE FUTURA EMBROIDERY SOFTWARE IN WINDOWS CONFIGURATION ... SO IT'S JUST FINE. I HAVE A NEW DELL ALL IN ONE WINDOWS 8 ...8.1 FOR EVERYTHING ELSE.
Excerpt: We ordered this computer online to have another computer for an employee. We did understand it was a refurbished laptop but when we received it, it looked ancient and then we found out it was actually like a 2003-2005 model computer...not worth the price on this one at all. This is the only bad experience we have had with Staples. We took it back and found a new one for about the same price so swapped it out..
One of the best of its time, still holds up decently.

Summary: I found this on here for an amazing price. It is quite old and dusty, but looks good as new after cleaning. All I needed for it was a charger on here for about $7 and my hard drive from a previous laptop that was made cheaply. I am also upgrading the cpu from 32 bit to 64 bit with the same speed on here for also $7. The laptop comes with everything you need and more minus a webcam that I do not use. The casing of it was made to last compared to most laptop I owned.
Summary: Nice fast thin laptop! Nice larger screen. Excellent reliability and at a great price (on ebay). I've owned thinkpads for lots of years now and they just keep getting better! Went from 600X to T40 to T60 and love the speed of the T60s (still own and use the older models!)! Couldnt ask for a better product! Very well made and again EXTREMELY RELIABLE!
Summary: I already own a T-60 and liked it well enough to recommend and purchase this product for a family member. I am partial to IBM products as I have used their laptops through out my career. Always well built to withstand everyday handling and travel. Screens that don't wobble, keyboards that have a great feel and the reliability that is time proven.
