I have only had this laptop for about a month, but so far, it has been great. It is not dainty by any stretch of the imagination. It is actually huge for a 15.6 laptop, both in terms of length, width, and depth. It is also heavy. The charger is big too...and heavy. It is not particularly pretty, at best we can say it has classic good looks. so why did I give it 5 stars? Because I don't care about any of that. This is my desktop replacement and it is perfect in that capacity. It is very fast, feels solid, has 4 USB ports including 2 3.0 ports which is great considering I have a 1 TB external drive plugged in to it. I plug in an external mouse, keyboard, 24" monitor and printer. The external video port (forgot the name of it) is a great alternative to VGA. I bought a cord that goes from that to HDMI for my monitor. Also, with the size you get a full size keyboard, a DVD writer, and all the ports you could ask for. Lastly, it came with Windows 7 Pro instead of Windows 10 which is an annoying disaster of an O/S in my opinion. About the same time this arrived, my wife received a replacement laptop from her company which was also an Lenovo. It was one of the dainty, convertibles with touch screen and light. I mean polar opposite of this laptop. So if that is your thing, you have options, but you will be giving up performance as well as other key items. After using a computer with 16gb RAM, I will never go back.
I needed to upgrade my laptop from Toshiba Satellit running XP for a presentation (although I could have done in on XP...). But I got the opportunity to get a new one (new to me...). So I looked for a good reliable Toshiba like I had. Not being available, I found this Lenovo ThinkPad that I thought would be about as good. My search parameters were Win10 8GB SSD and had a choice of a T410 or T510 for reasonable prices. I was weak and went with the bigger screen. Both had many, many ports and DVD writer, so I was very, very happy. Can't seem to find that on new laptops much anymore. Too much like tablets; I like tablets but I needed a laptop! I received the order in a timely fashion, so I was able to make my presentation without any last minute frantic rushing. The PC was refurbished by Joy Systems and it came with a refurb Microsoft Win 10 COA. I have not gotten online yet to officially activate it, but I expect absolutely no problems. The laptop looked in perfect condition; it looked like it was brand new. Of course it wasn't, so the battery doesn't hold a charge as good as a new one, but it far exceeds the minimum 45 minutes specified as acceptable in a refurb. Ebay, here i come... All drivers loaded without any trouble (I've seen complaints about other vendors from other companies, so I was worried...). The machine has performed flawlessly so far. As I use more features I will have a better feel for it, but my impression so far is "clear sailing". I rated this a SOLID purchase because the price was OK and hardware looked good and acted right. I may upgrade to LOVED IT in the future if it continues to work flawlessly.
This unit is a refurbished one, but starts up really quick and the performs like a new unit. I had my Ex to come over since he is an IT Specialist and he stated that I bought a really good computer for our son. That made me feel good to know that since I crunch numbers for a living, I can at least research well. My son is pleased and hasn't had any complaints. Lenovo T510 is what we have and it is much faster than my T430.
This is a fabulous laptop. I bought it as a gift for my husband. It was extremely easy to set up. It is very fast. The screen is bright. Very easy to use. Happy with purchase. Arrived quickly.
