Touchscreen?

nope

but what is screen resolution?
Main page says “•14” Anti-Glare HD LED-backlit display with 1366 x 768 resolution showcases movies and games in stunning clarity"

Specifications say:
Resolution: 1600 x 900

BTW, if I’m not mistaken, the touchpad is annoying on this one… the entire pad moves up/down when clicking

[MOD: It’s 1600 x 900]

I own one of these, albeit with the 1080p display and the extended capacity battery. It’s a good laptop, but there’s a couple of weird aspects to it.

1: This model features both an internal and a traditional removable battery. Before doing any work on the inside, be sure to enter into BIOS and shut off the internal battery before you open it up.
2: The buttonless touchpad is absolute garbage. It tries hard to emulate the floating style of touchpad that the pre-ForceTouch MacBook Pros use, but just winds up being an imprecise, mushy feeling slab. Luckily, you can fairly easily replace it with the traditional (and FAR superior) touchpad from the T450s. As far as upgrades go, it’s a pretty easy one and will really improve the day-to-day enjoyment you’ll get out of the thing.
3: It has an M.2 slot inside for the SSD, but it’s only compatible with 42mm drives (m.2 2240). This unfortunately makes getting a replacement/upgrade a tricky and pricey situation. However, there’s also a traditional 2.5" bay you can utilize.
4: Keyboard removal is kinda weird. You have to slide the entire bezel that sits under where the keys are
upwards, then pull the keyboard up. It’s awkward and doesn’t feel great.
5: Mine shipped with the garbage Realtek NGFF wireless card in it, which doesn’t even support AC or 5.0GHz networks. You can upgrade it to the Intel 7260NGW for not a lot of cash, but be sure that you get the one that’s on Lenovo’s whitelist (FRU 04X6008). Buying a non-whitelist card will cause the system to produce an error code on boot.

These admittedly minor gripes aside, it really is a solid machine. Even if you don’t change anything, chances are good you’ll enjoy using it, and will probably get a good number of years out of it.

But is it compatible with other business “must-haves” like token ring networks, dial up modems, and floppy drives?

Macnugget is absolutely correct about the touchpad. My company bought several of these models for their employees and all of the touchpads on them are garbage.

I’m sorry if I’m missing something, what grade of refurb is it?

We called them clunkpads and they were pretty bad. Lenovo received such negative feedback they switched back to a different design the very next year (T/X x50 models).

Damn, I was going to pull the trigger but no hdmi equals no deal.

I do not know if these are refurbed by the same outfit (nice folks) who did my Woot-bought Lenovo, but just in case READ THIS!

On my unit, the laptop installs the new, fresh O/S THE FIRST TIME YOU TURN IT ON. There is a note to CHARGE the laptop for 8 hours before using.

If (as I did), you just turn it on to see if it starts, it will start installing and then the battery dies and there is no easy way back. I had to obtain a restore disk to get it going.

OTOH, this batch may be pre-installed. But who knows?

Yes, I know, I should have plugged it in, etc. My bad.

We don’t have grade information. Here’s our definition of refurbished:

“Refurbished” covers everything from buyers’ remorse returns and products whose defects have been repaired by the pros to damaged packaging and discontinued items. If you can accept their checkered past, refurbs have a lot of love to give.
