3 out of 5 eggsGood laptop, poor refurb job

Pros: Once you fix the glitches, it's a T400, and at quite a nice price.

Cons: But oh, those glitches. Out of four I've bought, the track record so far has been:

* One unseated DIMM (could've happened in shipping)
* One keyboard with a near-dead F key
* Two shipped with the wrong Windows 7 edition (Home Premium when everything else says Pro)

The aftermarket AC adapters this refurbisher ships are downright frightening - popping and fizzing seems normal, and at least one seemed to drop out intermittently.

Other Thoughts: Nice price, but budget for some replacement parts if you're buying.

2 out of 5 eggsNot great

Pros: Nice laptop (when not refurbed by this group)

Cons: Multiple problems

Other Thoughts: I've had very good success with the refurb Asus laptops from Newegg, so this Lenovo looked to be a good bet.

I was wrong.

First: it had a stuck CD/DVD-ROM drive that wouldn't open without prying it loose with a fingernail. Rather than the hassle of a return (what I should have done), I decided to spend the $20 and swap in a DVD writer. No big.

Then a few days later I discovered a keyboard key that didn't work. By now returning and building up another laptop would have been a real headache. So I bought a replacement keyboard, dropped it in, and that problem solved.

Then yesterday the A/C adapter failed. Rattling noise inside. Looking at the label I found was an aftermarket A/C adapter, presumably replaced by the refurb company. No big deal -- I thought. But when I cut it open, I discovered incredibly shoddy assembly. A heat sink screw (with no nut on it) had fallen out. The regulator overheate and faile. Other problems I don't have space to describe here. So now I've ordered a replacement A/C adapter. +$30.

Two stars, not one, only because I think the Lenovo itself is probably a good laptop, and because I shouldn't have been a dingbat and not replaced it at the first sign of trouble.

Lesson learned. Advice given. But I do not recommend.

4 out of 5 eggsIt is always risky

Pros: Cheap, No bloat ware. A very reliable laptop for a couple of hundred. I have used t400s and newer t410s thinkpads at multiple jobs and always wanted one for myself. A new one was always out of my price range so a used one it is. The exchanged laptop is perfect, like new with no exceptions.

Cons: It's always risky doing a refurbished versus new. The first T400 I received was physically fine, a crack in the cd tray and a little more worn on the touch pad than I would like. But I could live with those faults. The real issue came about when I tried to put it through it paces. It just shut off. After a little research and a phone call later, i found out there was a bad thermal sensor that was saying it was overheating when it wasn't. I just returned it right away.

Other Thoughts: I do have to give NewEgg out standing props for the quick turn around time in getting me a replacement since the first laptop was bad. Just know that you roll the dice when buying used.
