Battery - 2 hours standby, so that means about 12 mins with the laptop booted and usable?
Djd198114/09/2019 12:33

New battery would be about £12 I reckon so might still be a bargain.



A Chinese knock off battery might be £12, I’d personally spend £38 for a legit one.

Decent spec for the price, condition of the laptop and battery life not so good. But if you just need something really basic to get some college/uni word processing done plugged in then for the price you’re paying it’s not bad at all.

I thought of getting this for my son at uni, and the main times to use something like this would be in lectures, taking notes... If this thing can't last... Then it's useless in my case...

What about picking up a decent powerbank?
I have the x240 which is only 1 slot ram (8gb) as opposed to the x250 2 slot ram (16gb max).
It can just about handle photoediting work without being too frustrating. So light CAD work is probably OK.

Games I'd say avg? cs:go medium settings if lucky? Nothing aaa.

Battery when new was great at 6-8hrs, but a common problem is that the design of the plastic clip on the battery breaks off after 1-2yrs of use. Eventually need duck tape to hold the battery in. You may get less mileage if you are not as careful with your laptop.

Edit: saw some concerns of condition of laptops.
To me, it's built quite robust, proper work laptop.

I bought it off work after 4 yrs of daily driver. Actually bought 2x, one of which isn't my one I used. Track pad, palm and keys are little worn but all replaceable for ~£10-20 per item. Its not a sexy laptop by any means but its serviceable.
I redone the thermal paste recently as I did an 8gb upgrade (cost £15 in the end ), this was a doodle.

On the other side of the coin, if they busted a robust product I wouldn't want to know how they man handled the machine during its life.

Oh fyi, there's either ssd or nothing underneath the palm bit on the x240.

Yes well spotted! - these last few photos show laptops have had one hell of a thrashing, dropped, knocked, heavily worn. Decent spec for the price but expect possible problems and maybe intermittent issues if they have been dropped a lot.

It's a saving site... a quid bottle of super glue and job done ffs
Absolute junk, and they even hide the actual pictures of the laptop behind stock images. That's D quality at best.
They look like they've been dragged through a pit of gravel!
Got a dell e7250 i5 5300u 8gig but no hard drive from seller on the bay for £100.. fantastic condition .. just add ssd and you're laughing

I got a 7240 for £150 with almost same specs + an ssd.

Highly recommended, absolutely cracking little device. Crisp 1080p touchscreen, speedy little thing.

In a cute little small package

There plenty buying them ...at my last look it was 127 sold
I love Thinkpads but holy moly, those pictures!

Maybe people don't mind so much as it's a popular listing, but it would bother the heck out of me.

At least it has an AC Adapter included, I had to source my own when I bought from SCC Trade way back when. And I bought a new battery as well.

No one mentioned another thing, it’s a 1.3kg laptop. That was the point for buying this.

Batteries are consumables, you just buy a new one. Maybe you can buy a high capacity one as well.
I bought one and it’s tip top condition, a real bargain
I've had a few ThinkPads over the years and they are extremely robust, so how they've managed to damage them this significantly I have no idea. But if you are still interested, Duracell sell their own batteries for many ThinkPad models, so might be worth checking those out first if you want a reliable new battery that costs less than a genuine Lenovo one. Also you can get most parts to replace the broken panels on eBay, either from China if you're happy to wait, or from German resellers at a higher cost but much faster delivery time. You'll be looking at £60-80 minimum to replace all the major panels, then £20-40 for the battery, so would probably be cheaper to just pay more for a well cared for one in the first place (unless like me you want all fresh panels and battery so it feels like a new laptop).

To be honest I think the seller has posted pictures of the worse case scenario, as the amount they have sold. . I doubt they will all be as bad as the one in the picture.
His feedback is too good to risk it.

Yeah that's a fair point, I'd personally go for one anyway as I'd want to refurb regardless. But I guess it's good to consider just incase someone is expecting a mint condition laptop. These are brilliant by the way, I've got an x220 which is an older version and it's still going strong and extremely portable, not far off a tablet.

I had the older x230 with i7 cpu. It was a beast and the battery life was also amazing. You just need to buy one of them extra capacity batteries like my one had. It also raised the laptop to which made it more comfortable to use. And better air intake for the fans

I also have a x240, although I've upgraded now. Another good thing about the X240 (and probably X250) laptop is that it can take a 2.5" HDD/SSD AND a m.2 mSATA 2242 (22mm x 42mm x 3.5mm) SSD card. I picked up a 240GB one and use it as the OS drive + I have a 2TB HDD for large files. A cheap quick upgrade - something like this - amazon.co.uk/dp/…YXT
I also bought a Full HD (1920x1080) IPS screen on eBay for it. Was an easy swap and is miles better than the standard screen.

My friend bought an x1 carbon gen 3 from me. 2 weeks later he smashed the screen when he closed the lid whilst his earphones were still on the keyboard. He managed to source him a replacement screen at a good price.

Not to mention the comments and snide remarks he'd probably get with a laptop in this cosmetic condition. Seriously I'd keep away. With the likes of the harsh physical knocks these appear to have taken, you may be a few minor thumps away from a doorstop.
