Great little laptops but the X200 deal was better

What was the x200 deal?

Don't forget these machines don't have mouse pad only a nipple pointer to control mouse, you will really struggle with 1Gb ram running windows 7, better off spending more and get something semi decent

What was the x200 deal?

This one I posted last week.
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lenovo-x200-ultramobile-laptop-refurb-87-99-ebay-newandusedlaptops4u-2072457
It's also an entirely different machine by comparison. Much cooler running, more comfortable to use.

Sorry but I'd be inclined to agree that an x60 is a bit too long in the tooth to be considered value for money at this price. I posted an x61 deal 20months ago that was less than this so this price is quite poor if you ask me in that a year of depreciation has happened since then. I'd rather risk buying from 3000rpm if I had to.

Further alternatives would be

X61 with 2x warranty period, 25% extra hard disk space, faster processor, less money and 2x the ram. Plus it's grade 1 so near perfect condition.

This site has X60 and X61's come up on a regular basis for ~£60 so worth waiting for one to pop up there if you really want an X61. That said I don't think they offer value for money even at that price. (NOTE: the one that is in stock is damaged).

I have no idea whether to buy an x200 or fork out for a HP Stream 14, I know there is a huge different. I am a teacher and want to use it as a cheap laptop for working on, I have a PC for heavier use. What would you recommended in terms of performance. Downside of the x200 is I will need to invest in a new battery and less warranty.

Your common problems with X200s will be a wonky wireless switch. Aside from that they're generally reliable from my experience of them in work. We have had the odd couple with a defective screen but I reckon that's more down to users abusing them. Stick an SSD into the X200 and it will work pretty quick too. Check out the mouse on the x200 as it doesn't have a standard touchpad and uses IBMs track point nipple in the middle of the keyboard.

I can't comment on the HP as I've no experience of them.

Hard to say which would be best, in my experience of low end HP hardware the keyboard will be poor, where the Lenovo is generally regarded as one of the best laptop keyboards ever fitted to an ultraportable.

On the opposite side, as you said the warranty side is a key plus point and you'll be hard pressed to find an X200 with a long warranty, if you are looking for something rugged and want to spend ~£200 like on the stream with a 14inch screen a HP elite/probook may be a good option to consider at ~£200 for an 8460 with a second gen i5 it wont be slow by any standard and just as bullet proof as the X200 if not more so.

You also have to consider 14inch screens are slightly easier for productivity. It depends on where you will be using it as the X200 is a just about fits on a Ryanair/Easyjet type flight, anything bigger is no hope. So depends on your use.

The plus for the X200 is that it's lighter by comparison and also gets a choice of batteries. I'm not aware the stream has user changeable batteries so the life you get is all you get till you find another power socket. Where the Lenovo you could carry a spare with you if you needed. This is a feature I look for in a laptop these days as the times I need it are rare but the ability to do it is useful.

Another thing about the HP is servicing, if something breaks it's probably going to be more expensive to repair yourself outside of warranty (and I presume you want the machine to last a few years). The reason for this is the HP is more of a single piece construction and IIRC near impossible to open up. On the opposite side the X200 or any refurb for that matter is going to have no warranty support so there's always the risk it will kick the bucket. In most cases these top end business machines are built to last and it's no unheard of for a machine that's 10+years old to be still going strong. I've come across a few 20year old machines that still work, albeit not in day to day use and being kept for nostalgia.

The HP is entirely silent which the X200 while whisper quiet 99% of the time but it does have a fan should noise be an issue.

Downside of the x200 is I will need to invest in a new battery and less warranty

I will add the x200 may have a perfect battery, most refurb machines like this spend most of their lives on desks and in many cases with the battery removed. My own one came from SCC (SCH) Trade and the battery was near mint. Hardly been used. So you can and do get good ones coming through. At the end of the day the battery will cost at the low end £15 for the lower capacity ones and up from there depending how much life you need. Most in my experience will last at least over an hour even with the old used packs.

I have the X220 and while it's a good laptop and I've upgraded it with a 480GB SSD and 16GB RAM, it's still showing its age (3.5 years). I had the X61s before (5.5 years) and while it was my favourite laptop ever, I wouldn't even dream of going back to it, let alone a 6.5/7 year old laptop! And to pay £80 for it too?

Sorry, but I can't endorse this. Not even for someone who "just wants a laptop". It'd be like recommending a PDA to someone who wants a modern smartphone
