Mixed reviews here from fellow contributors. Apologies if it isnt such a bargain. I bought a Viglen Genie (£84) with an i5 processor a couple of months ago and a Lenovo T410 laptop prior to that and an Acer Chromebook(£54) in between. All could be described as old technology but are absolutely perfect. The Viglen needed a new housing and SSD. Im using the T410 (i5) now. Both machines are fast. The Chromebook is surprisingly fast but only does what it says on the packet. Im not a nuclear physicist so I dont need my machines for anything much more than browsing and keeping in touch with the world. They would never do for gaming but at least ive got my hands on some reasonable pieces of kit with i5 processors that I couldnt afford new.

mattturner756

I use these for work (upgrading them soon I think). The different usage modes are good but the screen is a big poor for tablet mode. It's quite a small screen and the processor struggles on excel. we have SSDs in them and well so with a HDD this would be really slow and would need an SSD fitted. From what I know from IT we have problems with them all the time.

After my last brand new Lenovo went bust on me around 6 months in and I tried to get it fixed in China to no avail, well put off this brand. Too expensive to return it to Amazon UK (from China) so left it behind.

Picard123

It's a known issue apparently that can only be resolved by replacing it with a different panel, which is likely to be costly. https://forums.lenovo.com/t5/ThinkPad-S-Series-ThinkPad-Yoga/Thinkpad-Yoga-ghosting-after-image-watermark-issue/m-p/1781257#M8817 COLD for me. Simply not worth the risk. Buy an Acer Swift 1 / 3 / 5 instead.

Would agree and add it's pretty ancient technology.

Astec123

Feel free, means I won't have to explain to you twice something which you clearly can't comprehend. Please research the following before you go to school tomorrow. May help you in life a bit more. 1 - Vested interest - Squaretrade sell warranties, read the information you're presenting to find some holes in it. You'll find many if you can manage to look. 2 - The value of data. I have data on 3.2million laptops and their failure rates. 2% failed. It must therefore be right because I posted it on the internet and gullible people will believe it. This is what you want me to believe from this survey and it's patently obvious you clearly swallowed it hook, line, sinker and idiot pills. 3 - If I'm rude I suggest you review how YOU conducted yourself within this thread prior to me even replying. 4 - It's apparent you have no attention span for reading so I'll stop there because it's probably already too wordy for you.

jazzuk777

Yawn, please shut up now...or don't - I'm blocking you anyway because you are rude and tedious. Hope stats on 30,000 laptops is enough for you. https://www.squaretrade.com/laptop-reliability-1109/

Astec123

What research do you suggest I do? Please do tell me oh wise one what you think I should do exactly to understand what I already know to be the case. The dozens of companies I've interacted with the ICT service teams of and gotten an understanding of the reliability of the hardware they are deploying? I very much doubt you have ever had any laptop hardware that continues to function is over 10 years old. As yet you've been the one starting to make the first of those claims and as yet provided no citation of the source. I've gone out of my way to find what I believe you're attributing. My job is not that I have to find something to produce, I simply have to explain how the scientific methodology is entirely wrong and that it is all based in confirmation bias to support the ends of the company that provides it. With that said you appear unable to reason out how little in the way of 'information' this squaretrade document contains. You've apparently just looked at a few graphs, drawn your conclusion and refusing to look at the information presented to work out if it's justified in it's claims. You're a marketing dream so with that I'll leave you in your bubble.

Astec123

I know you don't really want a Lenovo due to the dated look you feel about it but I have a suggestion that might work. Not seen a great deal of other options, and I would not recommend a consumer grade machine. So with that budget something like the following would be my ideas. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CHEAP-Lenovo-Thinkpad-T450-Intel-Core-i5-5300U-5th-gen-vpro-8GB-500GB-Windows-10/302485477525?hash=item466d8a1895:g:lskAAOSwmZFZoBoZ T450, i5, vpro, 8gb ram, high res screen, dual batteries, warranty till 29th July 2018 with Lenovo should anything go wrong. No webcam or fingerprint reader on it (depending on your child that could be a good/bad thing). But it is £329 https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ThinkPad-T450-240Gb-SSD-i5-5300U-8Gb-webcam-Windows-10-Pro-2-batteries/192367314584?hash=item2cc9fc4698:g:VT4AAOSwuMZZClB6 Another seller, but it's slightly better with a 240gb SSD, webcam and longer warranty for about 1 year. Only apparent down side is that it's apparently got some minor marks. Otherwise it's the same price. Add a vinyl cover for it in a design she will like or a solid colour and it turns it into a whole new machine https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RED-Vinyl-Lid-Skin-Cover-Decal-fits-IBM-Lenovo-Thinkpad-T450-Laptop-/271907795141 As just one of 1000's of options.

poisondwarf

From which seller please?

plewis00

I'll second that. Worst touchpad ever on the T440 and X240 - basically either use the TrackPoint, an external mouse or tap--to-click. I cannot believe that ever made it out of prototype stage with something so heinous.

gkdkfcd2003

I’ve got both the T450 (works machine) and a X240 and they’re much the same build wise. Get a 1080p screen dropped into the X240 and it’s the even better. One thing to watch is the 40 series (T440, x240 etc) have the awful all in one touchpad although it’s not difficult to change and you can get the 50 series pad for about £30 on eBay. I bought an X240 (4th gen i5, 256mb ssd and 8gb ram) from eBay for a friend with the remainder of the Lenovo on site warranty (6months) for £214 delivered last week. I really don’t understand how this has heat.

Had one of those for work mid-2011. Loved this laptop, really good build.The T430 which came after was a great machine too and then the T440p was chunkier and had awful mouse buttons. The T420 is more than ok to run Windows 10 on, but worth replacing harddisk with an SSD. But this price is too high, and you'll probably have to invest in a new battery :-(

youngrobbo

If it helps, this was a really great laptop a few years back, one of Lenovo's truly golden moments. I managed to get our local school 15 of these from work, but with more RAM (8GB) and the higher resolution screen, for nothing. They're all still going strong, some 3 years later, remembering that they were over 3 years old then. It's not that you purchased a total dud, more you just overpaid. The T430 posted earlier would be a great buy. Also saw a T440 on eBay just now for £219.99. Also one for £214.99 or best offer.

Astec123

Unfortunately the ask and misc sections of HUKD are pretty dead areas of the site in terms of traffic. If you're ever unsure of if something is a good deal or not the best option it to post it before you buy and see what people are saying. If it's not a good deal you'll get a pretty quick answer like you did here.

RobertM0215

Thank you all for the responses. Seems like I have a lot to learn with buying a laptop but feel a little better educated! I did post a "help me find a refurb laptop" on here but didn't get any replies. If I can, I'll send this one back and do some research on the links kindly provided.

http://shop.lenovo.com/ukrewards/gb/en/laptops/thinkpad/t-series/t460s/#SYSTEM The same specification from Lenovo can be obtained for £977 so while it seems a good deal for this option, the listing is rather lacking in the important details. Personally, I'd rather buy the stock T460 for the double digit battery life. No mention around what battery configuration is being offered, what warranty is being offered ie are these already missing the best part of the first year of the typical 3 year Lenovo warranty, what keyboard they have considering these could be cheap grey imports among other things.

These were good in the day. If you're after a heavy chunky black plastic laptop that runs hot then there are cheaper ways to get one.

Gkains

Excellent laptop, but this is way above the going rate for these. A quick look on ebay finds plenty for far less even with some kind of warranty. For instance newandusedlaptops4u have one for £135 (ebay item number 371651275951) www.ebay.co.uk/itm/371651275951 A Sandy Bridge i5 is still competitive as CPUs haven't really gotten any quicker except for the iGPU. A new £300 i5 laptop won't have the built quality of this. No point comparing this class of machine with the cheap plastic throwaway laptops you can buy. The closest would be maybe a deal for an i5 HP ProBook. Of course, like I said this more than the going rate for a ThinkPad T420 and used Haswell ThinkPad T440's, EliteBook 840 G1's etc. can be had for under £300 often with remaining Lenovo or HP warranty. Even Broadwell (ThinkPad T450's, Elitebook 840 G2) might be possible for under £300.

Great laptop, easily worth £125, may be £150 with 6 months warranty and a tested battery, but £220 is way too much.

When people say the screen is poor on this is it like the screen is "blocky" when scrolling etc and almost seems a little bit slow to update? As an example if you follow this link and click on a single wheel, when you then scroll up and down the silver part of the wheel loses a lot of detail and is blocky. Does everyone else get this and will upgrading the screen fix it? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252318273712?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1555.l2649

You may find this of use Think Vantage

Offbeat

I couldn't agree more... I got mine today and I couldn't be happier. The ONLY thing wrong with it is a 2-3mm scuff on the screen itself that you can't even notice when it's turned on....apart from that it looks and feels brand new (definitely the top end of this guy's 'grade 2'). It's solid and all the keys work fine. Battery says 2 hours like yours but I've not had chance to use it yet - I'm a bit of a linux head so I've been installing that instead of windows (and to be fair don't really trust it when someone not only installs the OS for you but makes an account and even has the gall to install teamviewer alongside it...probably harmless but no thanks). The machine itself is lightning fast with the SSD and i5... and 4 gigs of ram for something like this is plenty. If you were to buy new you wouldn't find anything close to this for less than £400

gothamite

Picked mine up today, have to say Awesome! Could not have imagined anything better at the price, it really is a 'proper' machine, with fantastic build quality. Virtually as new, it passed the 'wife test' with flying colours. Battery life is hard to define at the moment, as when first fully charged it said 1h45m, now as I'm using it, it says 3h37m at 71%, fingers crossed it keeps that up! Thanks OP, a real HUKD bargain :D

Awaken

Can't really say yet, it came fully charged a couple of days ago, since then it's been kicking about either on or on sleep for >48 hours till it shut down today. I can definitely vouch for the quality of thinkpad batteries, my second ever laptop is a 560X from 1997, still on it's original battery and charger. When I booted it up last year the battery still held a charge for more than half an hour till I got bored with windows 98 nostalgia and shut it down :) Oh and thinkpads in general. Bloody marvellous laptops, nothing close on build quality.

It was just before I wiped it and reinstalled, wasn't signed into anything, including wifi :P

I think the above is right. Its about who you buy from in the case of a refurbished item cant say who is reputable though it certainly is not Scan if you judge that a new keyboard means they spray painted it ?

dcrdev

Not necessarily some refurbs, especially ex-business lease ones look almost new. It's all about who you buy from really - so just looking for peoples verdict on these particular models from scan.

Jimmyboy

If you're fussy and have ocd about scratches etc you're never going to be happy with a refurbished product.

TirolForce165

So much for Scans advertised new keyboard and battery the report above has shown that to be completly false. It seems where you buy your reconditioned Lenovo from is more important than a few pounds in cost and Scan is a lottery based on lies.

I meant windows 8 upgrade, amazed about the cold votes, hard to find a beter laptop than this for under 400.

CeeJay1975

I got one of these as my work laptop although mine has 16gb memory. The laptop is very well built as are all T4XX although the T430 has been my favourite so far (including the T440 that has a strange large clicky touchpad). The T430 has a really nice fast keyboard that has a backlight and a solid touchpad with some good multi touch features. Has a pretty good battery (or at least did when it was new!) that didn't quite manage a full days work but not far off. The screen is adequate although nothing special which would be my only real criticism of it. OK, this may not be the fastest laptop or have the best screen for the price point so if they are high on your priority list then maybe look elsewhere but if you want a good no nonsense workhorse that can take a few knocks and carry on then you can't go far wrong with one of these.

Decent deal IMO, don't know why so cold. Yes 2GB of RAM is tiny, but it can be easily upgraded, and you have yourself a very decent machine.

But surely the fact they have some premises is a good thing?! The address and telephone numbers are on the find us and customer services pages of their site. I've never used them so can't comment but all in all a physical shop and full contact details are a good sign. Plenty of people on ebay selling from their bedrooms with contact names which look like something has been dropped on their keyboards who would offer zero aftersales.

Update on the 2 minor complaints from my above post: 1) I bought a new (unofficial) 9-cell battery from an Amazon vendor for £40. It holds something like 7 hours of charge! 2) Having bought the new battery I found I started to care about the unofficial charger. I emailed 3000RPM to say I was happy with the laptop but wanted the 'genuine' charger as it was described on the product page. I had a reply the next day and a brand new, official Lenovo charger has arrived today, so now I have a brand new genuine charger and a spare unofficial charger! After just over a week with the laptop, I am really happy with the purchase. A real bargain for quite a powerful and portable machine. The only thing I've found on it that doesn't work is the "ThinkLight" - an LED above the screen that shines on the keyboard apparently! Sounds like a pretty silly feature to me so am happy for that to be the sacrificial fault with the machine! Sorry to hear others have had bad experiences like the thing turning up with wrong RAM or not turning up at all, but it seems only fair to the retailer to point out that my experience has been really good.

Mine still hasn't arrived. I've had to reverse the charges on my credit card. Fake signature from the courier, description of a person who doesn't live in my address, 3000rpm unwilling to refund and deal with the courier themselves.

I've got no direct experience of the Lenovo Thinkpads other than the second hand x201 I bought a while back, which seems well designed (at least it's 16:10 screen not 16:9) and no hassles with it so far, touch wood.

The t61 was the last good lenovo/ibm latop IMO Even had 4:3 rather than the modern short screen

The last decent IBM Thinkpad IMHO, we had loads of these at work a decade or so ago and they lasted well, the T43s we replaced them with were a pile of crap, I don't think any lasted their 3 year business lifetime without major repairs. No way would I pay over 100 quid for a T42 in 2014 though.

As other people above said - this is a legendary laptop and fantastic in its day but way obsolete now. I can't think of a reason to go for this.

My company had these machines and they are a solid machine with few problems, however the print wears off the key tops on frequently used keys which can be frustrating if you are a hunt and peck typist. It happened to loads of them used by both men and women, so probably not due to hand lotion.

Service manual: http://support.lenovo.com/en_GB/detail.page?LegacyDocID=MIGR-67980 Any of these three FRUs will give you a UK keyboard: 42T3233 42T3297 42T3167 You can swap out any regions keyboard for any other region's keyboard, regardless of where the laptop was manufactured. Also, if you have any older Thinkpads lying around, almost every one manufactured in a similar time period use the same keyboard part (less so with more recent thinkpads, around T430 onwards).

I already have high resolution fixed displays but that's hardly the same thing as I need something tough that I can shift around. This will be for use in a datacentre mostly as a remote console to many machines so as high a resolution as possible is best - everything else is secondary. It arrived the other day and I am quite impressed by it - very sturdy and performs more than well enough for what I'll use it for. I even got Starcraft 2 running in a playable state on Linux! Battery lasts about an hour and a half. Only major problem with it came with a US layout keyboard so they are collecting it in a few days. Hopefully they can replace it!

Gone are the days of this sort of resolution and higher being easy to get hold of (with the right sized wallet). Sadly with the graphics being not much use outside of running windows and web programs it's just a rather power hungry system that's rather dated in comparison to some of systems of a similar age. Annoyingly we took 10steps back when they all jumped on the "HD" band wagon and have been playing catch up for years. Hopefully, now that apple and google are pushing the pixel counts up others will take note and start pushing the boundaries once more. Frankly, I cant see why you would, when you could get a much better external monitor and hook it up to any laptop or computer you like. Much better solution as for the same money you could pick up a T400 (cooler running next generation evolution of this model) and get an external monitor and have even more desk space while also having the portability of a machine not running the graphics processor 24/7. These things have battery life measured in minutes. I've seen 45minutes of run time being bounced about for them when pushed doing things like HD youtube or about 90minutes of general web browsing on wifi with a low screen brightness from a new 9 cell battery. Considering my Dell XPS with a 17inch 1080 screen and i7 processor and 555m graphics can last over 3 hours on a 9 cell battery that's quite poor performance.

op -- it might make a (marginal?) difference to the voting if you put the screen size, 15.4", in the title. :)

You can also backup the activation files via the Advanced Tokens Manager utility - with that you can restore the activation on your computer if you rebuild it further down the line, without having to re-activate it online or over the phone.

Thank you grandwazoo, just tried it and worked.

Ring up and go through manual activation. Done it a couple of times, never had a problem.

Does anyone know is there a recovery partition on their x200 if so how can it be used to recover ? The Windows key is not valid when the product key tried to activate it over the internet. I really can't justify spending another odd £50 for a copy of windows just for a new product key. As I could have bought a working x200 with working windows off eBay for less. The Windows key on the sticker is an OA one, I would have thought that would have worked for a fresh install of windows 7 pro as that's the version on the sticker and that 32 or 64bit don't make a difference. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

X61/X61s were easy for access but the LCD assemblies were always a right pain (well for me anyway! X) ) with getting them apart without causing any damage to the bezel. Odd as I personally haven't had any issues with that eBay seller plus they were definitely genuine units, after checking them all out.
