2 out of 5 eggsVery noisy fan after 6 months

Pros: Inexpensive, reliable operation

Cons: After 6 months, the fan has begun to make incredibly loud noise: grinding, moaning, & whining. It's distracting, & certainly too distracting to watch a movie on. Unfortunately, my warranty was for only 3 months - so looks like I'm stuck with it.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I purchased this laptop because I am in a long process of buying parts for a new tower to replace my aging XP machine that has lasted over 10 years. Because I plan on spending a decent amount on that, I wanted an interim PC in case my XP machine fails beforehand, but also to have a laptop around for remote accessing and web browsing. My first laptop was an old IBM thinkpad similar to this, and I'm partial to many of the built in features. Also, getting a computer to get better acquainted with Win 7 for almost the cost of Win 7 is a plus, though I plan on getting 7 Pro 64 bit for my new tower. I've had this T60 for about 7 weeks now, used daily.

This laptop was in much better condition than I expected it to be in for something this old. I've seen refurbished laptops much younger in much worse condition. Basically, there was just some scuffing, one of the screen hinges is slightly looser than the other, and the screen latch doesn't lock without being pushed back manually. Keyboard shows little wear and the pad is near perfect, though the right arrow key requires 3x pressure to actuate, and produces an audible, tinny click. But like I said, much better than I expected.

I also purchased this with a Kingston V300 250GB SSD on sale. A big plus about this laptop, which speaks to thinkpads in general, is how well thought out some of the hardware is. Swapping out the HDD took all of a minute (quite painless compared to most acts of opening the innards of a laptop). I would have to double check, but I believe the hard disk was new, and now serves as an external backup in the laptop kit provided with the Kingston SSD.

Unlike some items I've received from NewEgg, this was packed very well, floated in box to avoid any direct impact.

Cons: This came with a clean Win 7 install, with none of the extra Lenovo utilities. Because of this, several of the keyboard buttons were nonfunctional, such as the volume keys and trackpoint buttons. Others were malfunctioning, such as the brightness hotkeys. Because this machine is pre Win 7, finding info on the correct (and not most current) drivers for proper functionality was a pain. Even with the proper drivers installed, it still has some issues (acting as if it hasn't had them installed sometimes).

My biggest issue is that the laptop I received did not have an ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 GPU as described. I compared this listing with a few other Thinkpads on NewEgg, and chose this one because it had a better and, more importantly, discrete GPU. That would mean a few extra years at best of useability, but the item I received already has issues with, say, streaming video. Not nearly as bad as my aging XP machine, but noticeable. This isn't a huge negative, because I didn't get this for it to be a workhorse, and I know the places that refurb these get a lot of different specs coming in, but still, it's listed as one of their main selling points.

While the battery appears new, I would suggest upgrading if you plan on being mobile often. Also, the optical drive won't write to DVD-RW's, which is practically standard these days. CPU/GPU temps tend to hover around 140-150F with basic web browsing (at 74, ambient). I wonder if the exhaust fan was tended to during the refurb, and if it needs new thermal compound or just replacement. I don't think I've seen the CPU get above 160, but it's still on the high side for my tastes, and popping of the keyboard, etc. is a bit much just to get a look at the fan's condition.

As stated, I replaced the HDD with an SDD, but, if you plan on doing the same, the T60's SATA controller is limited to SATA/I speeds, so you mainly have the advantage of no hard disk noise, heat, or need for defrag's. You really won't see a big speed advantage.

Other Thoughts: You can get a cheap, more current refurbished laptops for not much more money, but this one is much closer to being free. All in all, a good buy when you don't need a laptop that's a media hog. And, this is still probably one of the best laptop keyboards ever, so if you intend to get this for basic web browsing, emails, documents, etc. you can't really go wrong.
