I ordered one of these recently when it was on Woot’s smartphone app as an “Appsclusive” deal… clearly not very exclusive, except maybe for that day.

Mine arrived in pretty good shape. There was a very small crack on the front bezel near the trackpad, and something slightly sticky on the bottom (as if there had been a sticker there that was removed incompletely). The biggest problem was that it arrived with 3GB of RAM, instead of 4GB. Woot offered to issue me a partial refund for the missing RAM.

I took the refund. Then I maxed out the RAM (to 8GB) and replaced the HD with a small SSD I had. It runs pretty snappily now. I bought this for an elderly relative, to replace her 10-year-old laptop that was running Windows XP; she is thrilled. Windows 7 works a lot like Windows XP, so she doesn’t have to learn the new Windows 8 UI. The video card isn’t the best, but it’s fine for all of her tasks.

(Tip: there are two RAM slots, one under the keyboard and one under the access panel on the bottom.)

Heh. It’s conflicted - DisplayPort and eSATA vs FireWire 400 and a modem :stuck_out_tongue:

Does it come with some fancy pre-installed software? I hear Lenovos do.

Yes, and fancy pre-installed firmware. Neither are something you want. I would pass on this brand unless you are never going to connect it to the internet.

Yeah, superdoopercalifragilisticfish… or something to that effect… don’t quote me though.

just got this same one here last week. very happy with it. its solid. heavy… colors a little washed out but speedy excellent value. busniess class. u can dock this on a cheap $50 dock. mine looks brand new.

I’m not a fan of the Thinkpad laptops: Keyboard and port layouts are quite annoying. There’s some perks such as keyboard light, live charge USB port even when turned off, but the reversal of ctrl and Fn and useless back/forward page keys near the arrows make this a non-starter for me. Having ports such as video come out of the upper front of the left side has resulted in damaged cables.
