I thought you got 5 for £100 :-(

You can buy 1 for £129.80 INCLUDING VAT but for those wanting to supply a load of computers that need simple internet connection etc this is an amazing deal only $99 plus tax for 5 or more.
NICE BIG SCREEN AND IF YOU WANT MORE RAM OR HARDDRIVE SPACE THE INCREASE IN COST NOT TO BAD.

All prices must include VAT. Updated. Thanks

Would not recommend this company. I bought a desktop computer from them and when it arrived, it was not in good condition at all. It was bent and bashed all over. As I picked it up out of the box, the side fell off and shelving and various other things fell out of the inside. They never answer the phone and the refund took ages....a month before Christmas too.

Not a bad deal, not amazing, considering you get Windows 7 (which to me is preferable to Windows 8), a nice big screen. Minumum of one hour battery life, does not sound too good. 80 gigabytes of hard drive is ok (just). Only just if this is configured with a recovery partition (as it seems to be).
For this price, I think it should be configured with the latest drivers from Lenovo and at least service pack 1 for Windows 7.
Fortunately it's got one USB 3 port. Only 2 gigabytes of ram.
Revues at Microdream all seem to be favourable.
Resellers should consider now new laptops are approaching the £160 mark, they should price their second-hand machines accordingly.

Sorry but cold from me also as you can get a later model thinkpad (or latitude/probook/elitebook/satelite pro) for the same money with more ram, faster processor and a larger hard disk and with a similar warranty from more reputable sources.

These only ever came with USB 2.0 (released in 2007). USB 3.0 can only be added with an expansion card. It's also worth noting that the recent Dell deal the processor in that machine is about the same sort of performance to the T7100 in this Lenovo.

I'll second this. Avoid!
I bought some desktops from them. Three of which had the exact same fault (which I myself spent ages pinpointing).
It cost me over £40 quid to return them, which they refused to pay. (I'd have demanded a refund, but I actually needed the computers for work)
Long story short, I'd wasted a lot of money & time on something which should just have been ready to go. Which meant I was essentially working on these before I was able to get any of my own work done.
They told me it was in their T&C's that I was responsible for return postage.
I was going to pursue it legally, but I eventually just went out & did something less boring instead.
Oh, and the whole process took forever, because they kept trying to fob me off with an alternative model which I wasn't interested in.
I hate complaining & threatening someone's livelihood. Their prices are good & everything. But I was treated pretty badly.
The whole process was painful.

Very unfortunate!

Probably safer then to deal with them through their Ebay outlet

Threatening ebay sellers with negative feedback usually puts the fear of God into them :)

In my experience with adding USB 3.0 via expansion card on 2 different laptops with two different cards, they rarely power external HDDs even with the power cable supplied, or with a double headed cable. They're fine for USB pen drives though.
