Sold out for now but a great bargain if more are offered later...

Pros: This laptop arrived in mint condition with no indication it was ever used.
Everything is working and the only bump I encountered was my dyslexic brain when I transposed to characters in the authentication key which I later caught.
This laptop is now happily running Windows 7 Pro and Linux Mint 18.2

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this laptop if more are offered in the future.

Great little laptop

Pros: Great laptop if you need one (cheap!) for basic tasks. The one I received was basically like new. It comes pre-installed with Windows 7 Professional but I opted to put Linux on it and it works like a charm.

Cons: Small screen size, but it was expected.

Other Thoughts: These are all refurbished meaning it may not be "like new" when you get it but for $200 it's well worth it.

Refurb done right

Pros: I bought 2 of these a year ago, several months apart, for friends, both computer novices. One had an OLD desktop, prone to part failures. The other is "older"; web surfing, e-mail, and skype sufficient.

Both were in pristine condition. CLEAN. Given it was a year ago, Microsoft had free upgrades to Win10, which I did on both. Straightforward, and especially handy as one was converted for a Mandarin speaking user (additional language packs simple to install). Replaced the HDD in it with an SSD and exchanged 4gb memory for 8gb. The other was left "as is" as it was replacing a 7 inch mini-notebook running XP for the "older" user..

One user uses the built-in camera and mike; the other uses a headset (see comment below about headphone/mike jack). Both work fine for video chats. Has 1000Mbps ethernet port (one user uses), other uses wi-fi. Either works fine for video chats. Both use the screen, no attached display. But it is easy to attach an external monitor.

Both are still running fine a year later, daily use, and both users extremely happy.

Cons: Battery does not hold a full charge, but good enough for temporary use. Both are being used as desktop replacements, so battery life not an issue.

The biggest negative is no USB3, only USB2. On the other hand, easy to buy an Ultrabay III 3 2nd Hdd Lenovo ThinkPad T420 T520 W520 T420i SATA 3.0 6gb/s cradle for an hdd in the CD slot to allow faster access to the motherboard. For small data transfers (e.g., flash drives), the USB2 is sufficient. There are "usb3" cards that will fit in the express card slot (not USB3's full speed, but faster than USB2). Some Rosewill RX-358's external enclosures come with an e-sata connection and all RX-358's have an internal fan for cooling (HIGHLY recommended).

The memory card slot was moved from the T410's front (VERY convenient) to the T420's side (not so convenient). Slot seems to be prone to card sticking on these T420's; it was easier to buy an external memory card reader (Tek Republic TUC-310 USB 3.0 Card Reader ) to avoid the problem.

Other Thoughts: Bought 2 used Lenovo ThinkPad Mini Dock Series 3 USB 3.0 Type 4337 04W3587 w/Power Supply for the "upgraded" one plus one for my own use (it fits the T410, T420, and T430); works great (NOTE: the T420 does not have USB3, only USB2; just upward compatible). One advantage of the docking station is that it uses separate headphone/mike jacks. The on-board headphone/mike jacks on these Thinkpads are a combined jack, so you'll need to buy an adapter if using those.

In total, over the past several years, I've bought 4 Thinkpad refurbs: 1 T410 and 2 T420's from Newegg, and 1 T430 from elsewhere. If you don't need USB3 (on the T430), then the T420 is a great deal for a "work" computer (no games). Works great on the road. Keyboard is nice, and it has all it needs to be self sufficient. In buying directly from Newegg, my experience anyway, these are clean refurbs, refurbs done right.

Great product for the price!

Pros: I bought this laptop well over a year ago and its still runs like a beauty. I'm a university student who already owns a high end gaming pc and I just needed something to access the internet, write word documents, and read pdf files. The laptop was brand new when I got it. Came with the windows key which I immediately upgraded to windows 10. Keyboard and track pad are really nice. Overall its a great budget laptop!

Cons: Its kind of heavy to carry, but within a week or so I got used to it in my bag. - It can be a bit noisy after having it on for a few hours. - Typing on the keyboard is a bit loud, but you only notice it when you're in a quiet place.

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend switching to 8gb of ram, especially if you're a university student who has lots of tabs and pdf files opened at once. Also adding an SSD and configuring your setup for two drives is really nice. Tons of youtube videos and forums to look at if you're thinking of doing both.

Very Nice Laptop for the Price Paid

Pros: Got this on a Lightening Deal for about 1/2 of regular price - at a discount I was very happy with what I got. Nice laptop for a refurbished model - I upgraded the RAM and it seems to be quite snappy and I really prefer Win7 (for now).

Cons: Would have liked more original packaging (as this was donated as a prize) and a manual - but it is refurb so I didn't really expect them.
