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

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.
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.
Summary: I have had the Lenovo ThinkPad X201 for over two years. This laptop is an absolute workhorse. I use it every single day, easily 8-10 hours a day, I run all sorts of tasks and programs on it. I can easily go 4-5 days without having to restart it, it hardly ever gives me issues. About 6 months ago the battery stopped holding a charge but this was unsurprising as this has happened to me with other laptops. I replaced the battery and I am back in business.
