Refurbished "Refurbished" products have been tested to ensure compliance with original manufacturer specifications, and MAY include a limited manufacturer warranty - see the item's product page for details.
Pros: Still well built.
Cons: See my previous review.
Other Thoughts: I see that the pictures have been updated. They used to have a generic Thinkpad photo. You can disregard my complaint about the fingerprint scanner in the photo now.

Not Manufacturer Refurbished
Pros: Well built. Thinkpads are pretty easy to repair. Excellent keyboard. LED screen is an improvement over my older Thinkpad T61. It appears to have a brand new battery (it has a cycle count of 6, but first use was on 10/2010).
Cons: My laptop was "refurbished" by a company called Metro PC (or Metro Business Systems as named in my system info). If you buy a refurb from Lenovo it will appear brand new. This machine was in pretty good shape, but shows signs of wear and use. There is a scuff on the screen (it doesn't really impact display) and some residual adhesive from a corporate sticker. There are also signs of light wear on the case and keyboard.
Other Thoughts: I don't know what's up with the answers in the Q and A.

Repairs and replacements can be costly.
Being covered against failures pays off.
