I have put up a few deals from them from there newsletter and got a lot of heat so incase this helps anyone (I also just ordered another for the father in law)

I previously have bought one from there before also a good few months ago and never skipped a beat,price seems silly cheap for what they are? i5 for processor as well

I think they sold out in a few hours last time so best be fast at this price!!!

also i am sure it will be free upgrade to windows 10?

After purchasing check if your battery is part of the Lenovo free-of-charge replacement batteries for all recalled batteries program:

Excellent machines. Mine has given me years of service, finally moving on to an X230 in a week or two. Will kind of be sad to see it go.
Any one used the seller before?
Might be worth adding to description these are refurbs. Great price though for an i5 even if an older chip.
Anyone had to return anything with these people? Are they free returns - can't seem to find out from their website...?
Hopefully this is good, only have a desktop would be nice to have a laptop as extra. I assume the battery is shot on these? any past experiences?

No touch pad? That's strange.
So does it not function or is it missing?

Decent value. Be good for home working, browsing and watching media, especially if you have network/cloud storage

Worp worp danger danger danger.

Seller is 3000rpm so avoid. Their understanding of refurbished is 'do nothing at all'. See previous threads for details.

Stick to the x201. I've had the x230 and x240 and they are rubbish in comparison. Keyboard is poor, trackpad iOS useless and even the red nipple has changed. Most of all the build quality is terrible!
Does anyone know about the graphics card (or lack of it) on this?...the site does not seem to say.

It says free returns on the banner here - 3000rpm.com/aca…tml

30 days warranty is way too short for me personally, although it does look like a good laptop.

I have an x201 and it definitely has a touch pad but I wouldn't worry too much as the touchpad is crap and I never use it.

Graphics most likely integrated.

Lenovo are still running their battery recall programme. Worth seeing if you get a free new battery if you buy one of these refurbs:

There are better deals on the Mcscom.co.uk and they give 1 year warranty. Just bought Dell Inspiron i7 4500 8gb Ram 1TB for £200 and there are cheaper ones there also.

Thanks - after a bit more digging it seems returns are only free for faulty/damaged items. You have to pay return postage for anything else. You also only get 7 days to return I'd you change your mind.

Interesting stuff, but their cheapest laptop seems to be £99 and doesn't come with an operating system.

Never heard of these before, what are they like?
Was the laptop you received ok/as described?
Ordered - thanks OP.
Fantastic machines these. I have been running two faultlessly for 3 - 4years.
The graphics card is good enough for me to run ProEngineer professional 3D CAD software on it without issue.

Bargain!!

Just ordered it today and is being delivered tomorrow so I will let you know then. This is my first order from them. But they had another two i7's earlier today for which I was also tempted but both are now gone.
Good price. Screen on the smaller side though.
I've been looking for a cheap desktop for a while now, but this is better than anything I've seen so far. Will give it a try. Thanks OP
Ordered one. Thanks OP.
Is upgrading to SSD worth it for this machine?

That's my plan. Spend £60 on a 240 GB SSD and another 4 gb of RAM and it should be rapid for £150. The free battery replacement direct from Lenovo is another bonus.

This will make a great Plex server with a external HD attached to it.

I find your lack of faith disturbing (though probably accurate)!
