LAPTOP: Love it. Exactly what I wanted, although not as described. The details said Windows 7 Pro. When I got it, it had instructions that the original key was no longer valid and had a new one with Windows 7 Home. Ok, I'll live. But it also sid 6 GB of RAM and actually had 8, so that more than made up for it!! SHIPPING: What a joke! I ordered this 2 weeks before vacations, on a Saturday. Expected delivery was Mon/Tues of following week - about 10 days. Didn't ship for almost a week and then finally arrived the night before vacation, so I was scrambling to get it setup. In the world that Amazon has created, I found this unacceptable. While I don't expect everyone to be Amazon, I do use that as the standard and 12 days to receive a non-customized product just isn't acceptable. Furthermore, I would have paid for faster shipping, but the options only got it here a day earlier and the original (wrong) estimate would have been fine.
I bought this machine to replace my ageing T60 which, though it has served me well, it has seen better days. This is the third ThinkPad I've owned and it's a great machine for my needs. I wouldn't have thought it was refurbished except for a minor mark or two which I had to closely examine the unit to see. It performs like a new machine and is very clean. Maxed out with 16 GB of RAM and with 750 GB SATA Hard drive it needs no upgrades It's much lighter than the old T60 making it easy to carry while travelling. I was also pleased at the fact that it arrived quickly and was well packed to prevent any shipping damage. I'm sure it will give me many years of service and I'll likely come back to Overstock.com if I ever need to replace it or want to upgrade. In the meantime I couldn't be happier with this little gem. The only bias I have is toward ThinkPads. I've never been disappointed with Lenovo's hardware or the performance of their machines. I'll most likely never buy anything else for a laptop.
