Stay away! Nothing but problems.

william c., Newegg
12 May 2014
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: First unit would boot into Windows and then put up a message: Hardware not compatible with operating system. Returned unit for exchange. New unit boots then locks up after a few minutes of use. Rebooting unit results in message of: Reinstall Windows.

I love broken stuff

Greg G., Newegg
9 May 2014
  • Summary: At least turn on the refurb before you ship. First thing I saw after turning on were the white horizontal lines in the screen.
  • Pros: Got here fast.
  • Cons: White bars through the screen. Screen damaged, housing damaged.

Choose intel integrated video card over admittedly defective nVidia unit.

cadin_123, Ebay
27 March 2014
  • Summary: WARNING: A major percentage of T61's have a faulty integrated nVidia (recalled)video card. This can often be remedied by Lenovo after warranty, but likely with considerable effort. The intel video card installed units do not experience this fault.

the description was not right

Brian, Amazon
21 January 2014
  • Summary: The laptop I received had scratches on the lcd and the hinges were very loose. The description said normal wear. This is the first laptop I have ever purchased that didn't have an accurate description. I usually use Ebay and if there is a problem with the screen having scratches it will be listed in the description so there is no surprises.

Slow and without MS Office

Celeste Fendell, Amazon
9 January 2014
  • Summary: For some reason, when the computer description said the Lenovo came "fully loaded", I just assumed it meant loaded with MS Office suite. Not so. It does have Open Office, which I have used, but which is not always adequate for creating the types of documents I like to use. Also, it does not really interface well with the network I have at work, so my coworkers cannot open the reports I have created at home.

Broke in one week.

Michael Jacobs, Amazon
22 December 2013
  • Summary: Hard drive failure in wk one. On paper it looked good but not this one. I have had good experiences buying used or refurbished in the past. Not very happy that we were charged for the return expenses. Happy there was no delay getting a refund. Waste of time and money but this is what I expect buying refurbished for my children. Got a news Azus 1 yr wty.(from Tiger Direct) for about $70 more when factoring in coast of return postage.

Went back to my T42

High Plain Drifter "rave_reviewer", Amazon
15 September 2013
  • Summary: I apologize to those reviewers who clearly fell in love with this machine but the reliability factor just was not there. If you poke about Amazon you will find I wrote a review of the T42 which was fairly popular, I suggested it was (AND MAYBE STILL IS) the best deal on the used computer market (for everything but HD graphics) and suggested how to update the unit for modern use. I have currently 4 T42s in a network, and they are more fun than a barrel of hammers.

Do not buy from this vendor

Michael Castricano, Amazon
6 September 2013
  • Summary: Laptop arrived in poorly padded USPS cardboard box. When unpacking the system, found that no AC adaptor was included. Laptop battery has no charge so I cannot confirm working condition. AC adaptor is crucial for use of any laptop, so this was a very unpleasant surprise. Now have to shell out another $30.00 before I know for sure if it even works.

Not happy with purchase.

sfcomputerpros, Ebay
24 June 2013
  • Summary: This product was not what we were expecting. The Window 7 was installed but no product key was on the bottom which is essential. Also casing was broken. We are returning the merchandise.
