Not sure this deal is any better or worse than their other deals. They are an excellent seller though and I have bought numerous laptops off them. On a couple of occasions I have received better than described I both condition and spec, but never worse. Highly recommended as a seller, but not voting either way for the price

Considering most tablet laptops at 150 quid ish are scorching hot here I thought people would like a proper laptop, an i5 option, outdated slightly yes but still a decent amount of power, certainly better than alot of these extremely weak processors we see today in budget tablets/laptops

Seller is great yea, bought stuff off them and they've been amazing

I guess they charge 10 quid for doing it for you, so it comes pre-installed with Win10, I would advise doing it on your own (unles you're super lazy or have no clue how ^^)

No, they charge £10 for their time in doing it. Nobody twisting anyones arm to pay it.

Its a good deal - anything cheaper has DE or US keyboards.

Excellent series of laptops, I'm still using an X220 and with an SSD & 8GB of RAM it flies along. Not brilliant for games, but then again they were never designed to be gaming machines.

we have these at work, great machines and the battery life is amazing

I use a second hand x220 and love it. His one will be slightly faster but imo has a worse keyboard.

I recommend an IPS panel upgrade (around £50) an SSD and maybe the 94wh battery (another £50). However the base unit is fine to start with.

I'd try and get 8gb ram and 250gb SSD, if you can find a good price.

Posted from an x230 with both.

I'll do the upgrade to windows for £5 + delivery costs! any takers??

Very true. I put 16g b on mine. But didn't see any benefit so changed back to 8gb. These are very good laptops and ssd is a must.

X230 is not on there. Just up to x220 I'm afraid. But thanks for the link. I have an x200 lying around with bad battery I'll try to get battery on

These were £199 a couple of months ago. I nearly got one, but ended up getting a faster E6230 Latitude from Gumtree for £140, basically unused with six month Dell warranty.

My main worry on these was the battery, if the battery was only two hours, it would be fairly annoying and a new battery would push the price up fairly.

Great specs for the money and fantastic build quality.

Used one of these recently on a course at work. After using several Thinkpads (my own work version is one of the more recent) I was pleasantly surprised by how quick this is and tempted to purchase. For personal use I have an asus ultra book which isn't a patch on this for business functions

These definitely need the IPS panels! The standard (TN?) ones are woeful.

Great machines

i5-3320m is a very good processor for this money you'll not get better performance. Probably won't be Turbo Boost enabled as my Lenovo doesn't allow it even though the CPU is capable of it, so performance is basically the same as the i3-3110m which is still hard to get at this price point.

For anyone that's interested, I'm currently selling (via HUKD) my Dell E7240 Core i5 ultrabook (which would seem to be an equivalent - but better - alternative to this Lenovo)

Warranty through to June 23, 2017.

Comes with a desktop dock, 3G sim slot, backlit keyboard, 128GB MSATA SSD, i5 4200u processor, 1x4GB RAM (1 slot free). Original charger...some scratches to the lid - but in perfect working order. £210 delivered.

great laptops, bought mine as a ex-corp when it was used for... wait for it....................


16hours! (battery cycles and Harddrive poweron time confirmed that )
Paid £200 for mine + upgraded with time to 8gb ram and ssd 1.5years ago.

Best laptop I have ever had, it's so small, great keyboard, yet really capable even today and I don't see any better alternative spec wise/performance wise laptop today.

These were £800-£1100 machines when new depending on the spec..

btw I would spend a bit more and look for x240 ( around £200 ) or x250 (around £250)
instead of this one, although its super great laptop well those are just few generations newer models for not much more and has slightly better videoperformance as long as muuch longer lasting batteries depending on the model.

Lenovo x250's are selling for 600-800 quid most places depending on exact specs, HDD, SSD, etc... that statement was super, super dumb

£250 was clearly very wrong....but you are also just as wrong with your over inflated estimate !!
Pretty much the first X250 result I found was for £424;

Uhm NO! check the ended auctions on ebay...
wait a week for a good one and bid on it...


actually I have an idea now in mind to sell my x230 for £200-£250 to some numbnut who can't use ebay ( to someone above for example) and buy the x250 for the £250

not a bad idea


edit: Than again, the x230 has a bit more powerful cpu than the x250 and mine x230 is still perfect so won't bother upgrading just to get a newer model.

Please show me the EBay auction where one of the X250's sold for £250.

The closest one I found in ended auctions was one that had a cracked screen, and was stripped of all its components - for....£210!!

I v.much doubt you'll get one for anywhere near £250!

Its a good point re the keyboard and one reason why I haven't bothered moving up the X series ladder. The X230 was the first to use the "island" style keyboard as opposed to the full size keys on earlier models. Its a marmite thing, you either like that style or you don't, and I don't!

Even with 100 quid worth of upgrade (and that could get you a great full HD screen, an SSD or a big HDD, Windows 10 Pro 64 bit and perhaps 2/4GB RAM extra) it will be much, much better than what you can get in the 250-300 price range
