Great experience so far!
 from Nashville, TN,  Apr 7, 2013

I was hesitant to buy a refurb. But I am a college student on a budget, and I have always wanted a ThinkPad so I figured I would spring for it. The computer arrived in great shape! There is a little bit of wear on the keys from use (i.e. they are a little shinier than they probably once were), but even this was hard to tell without a discerning eye. The keyboard itself is amazing. I have heard how ThinkPad keyboards are a wonderful typing experience, but I had never really experienced it for myself. So, other than the keys, the computer looked essentially new. Everything went fine with the Windows install. I will say that it was advertised as having Windows 7 Pro, but it had Windows 7 HP whenever I received it. Not sure what happened there, but either way it really doesn't make that much of a difference to me since I will most likely not be using the computer for work. I also plan on dual booting Windows and Debian on this system (haven't done it yet though) so I'm not too concerned with the Windows release.

  • How did the image on site compare with the actual product? It was pretty much identical.
  • Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? Yes it was, to my knowledge.
  • Please tell us about the quality of the product. I have worked with Apples and other PC's. Compare to other PC's I have worked with it is much better! Compared with and Apple computer, for my uses at least, it is on par.
