Everything was fine (very good condition) except the AC adapter cord

Yoo Seunghyun, Amazon
13 February 2015
  • Summary: Everything was fine (very good condition) except the AC adapter cord. I didn't notice that the inner wire had been exposed. Unfortunately, it was the AC line (110 volts) not the DC line (19 volts). The laptop suddenly said that the adapter was not working correctly so I touched the adapter including the AC adapter cord to examine the reason. At that time, I thought it was just a connection problem. When I touched the AC cord, it sparked and I had to turn off the outlet.

Very impressed with price, condition and seller.

squagle, Amazon

  • Summary: Great laptop for the price. Virtually no physical wear at all. 150 battery lifetime battery cycles (according to Lenovo power utility.) Laptop is a 3626W58 with a new 320gb 7200rpm HD and 1x 4gb ram stick. All other specs are as advertised. Data Sales Co. threw in a docking station with DVD/CD-RW. Impressed with no-bloat-at-all but correct drivers installed. Would recommend this laptop and the seller Data Sales Co.

Great programmer laptop for the price!

Sergey Smirnov, Amazon
31 December 2014
  • Summary: Great laptop for the price. I bought it as a very portable machine to use for programming and general web surfing on the go and it works great. It even plays Netflix without stutter! The battery lasts a long time for a four year old machine, and its charger is pretty small compared to other laptops. Only thing I'd recommend is swapping out the HDD for an SSD, it'll be lighter and much faster.

Solid, reliable, maintainable

TRJ, Amazon
9 December 2014
  • Summary: I use these when I travel. Upgraded to another brand when my Thinkpad was destroyed in Israel. After many countries, then back to the US, I ended up with an old, used X201 again! They're that reliable and still fast/enough RAM. Only drawback is no SATA 3, but with an SSD HD, speeds are acceptable. Best part, you can swap out about any component and on the 9-cell batt, last an overseas flight before a charge is needed.

... over recent years and this laptop is just as useful now as when it was released

JR, Amazon
1 December 2014
  • Summary: Laptop technology hasn't improved very much over recent years and this laptop is just as useful now as when it was released. The only cons is the SATA2 port instead of SATA3, and how hot the bottom of it can get during normal use.

Built like a tank, user friendly, and a workhorse.

giankymaster, Ebay

  • Summary: I am a writer, who owns an HP windos 7 computer and an Apple Macbook. Needed something that could withstand weather, shock, and at least be kid resistant (nothing is kid proof). So before I got rid of the Macbook I looked and was directed to this gem. Computer is built like a tank, from the rubberized exterior, to the drain holes in case of accidental spills. Boots rather fast, and the screen is a beauty to behold.

Great refurbished machine, impressive seller.

Randal, Amazon
19 October 2014
  • Summary: This wasn't quite the same X201 3626FRU machine as in the original Amazon product description here from which I made the purchase (since I received an X201 3626W58), but I was highly impressed with the price of this refurbished notebook from Data Sales Co and, at this point at least (having only had this machine for a day), I have to commend this seller on the quality of packaging, appearance and condition of this notebook.
