Great small machine for the size, only downside is the low-res screen and the lack of type-C USB/Thunderbolt 3.

jnm21

I think you read it wrong - I said I would have any screen marks as grade B or C - same as I wouldn't have screen marks as grade A.

mtuk1

You said you would have screen marks in your post. That’s why wondered if you meant wouldn’t?

louiselouise

Yes, I thought that was a strange grade as well. Never bought from ITZOO but as far as I know they get good feedback. I had an X200 from SCC Trade - though I also purchased an HP Elitebook (can't remember which one) which was "0GB" (bought an SSD and new AC Adapter in preparation) - totally DOA (I'd read HUKDers saying this was pretty much a dead cert that all it needed was a new HDD/SSD) - they refused to refund me, never purchased from them since.

jnm21

In the eye of the beholder - I am used to a 4th gen i3 (IIRC) with a 23XX or 24XX score, which is relatively fast - anything above 2500 is fast enough & 4000++ is blistering for me. I don't do much intensive stuff & hey if a video transcode takes an hour or 2, so be it!

Windows 10 tends to install most of the drivers just fine. If you go to the Lenovo site you can search your model T450 and download some drivers manually, so I think i mainly did the Bios update and keyboard shortcuts one which shows on-screen icons when you turn on and off the caps lock etc. But yeah if you download the Lenovo software, that will also ensure you have all the drivers and softwares you need plus keep them all up to date! Lucky you on getting the internal battery version!! and the slim battery haha - jealous.

ErChivo

I finally got mine, so far so good. It came with the small battery and the internal one, which I prefer since I can just get a large external one later if necessary. The only thing is that the screen is not great, colors seem a bit washed out, not sure if there is an issue with mine or if that's just how they look. Mine also came with the same Win10 image as yours I think, with the Dell drivers, etc. So I want to do a format and fresh Win10 re-install for some peace of mind, is there like a drivers package that I can download or perhaps just use the Lenovo vantage software to get them easily?

BenderBendingRodriguez

Search for 04X5916 LG panel. 04X5916 is an OEM part "blessed" by Lenovo in their list of compatible parts.

ErChivo

Sweet, I went with the 240ssd and 8gigs of ram, will do a clean install if the set up process has been completed. Thanks mate.

krazykush

Yeah I would have expected it to be without set up completed. Yep you do get an official licence for Win 10 Home. There is a COA sticker on the laptop which says "WINDOWS 10 HOME FOR REFURB PCS". You have scratch some silver stuff off to get the full product key visible. I was able to activate Windows with it just fine. As I wanted to do a clean install and do it "my way" I have done a clean install of Windows 10 Home, and done the appropriate driver updates and BIOS updates. I would highly recommend the laptop. It is a solid build with a great spec at this price. You could go for the SSD version for that extra rapid-ness if you want. I got the 8gb/500gb drive version, but will upgrade to an SSD at some point.

The i7 in this laptop isn't far off in peformance vs the dual-core i5 or i7 laptop parts released in recent years. Aside from the graphics, the single-thread CPU performance from these old laptops vs todays laptops - genuinely, there isn't much in it. Data to back this up: http://www.hardocp.com/article/2017/01/13/kaby_lake_7700k_vs_sandy_bridge_2600k_ipc_review The Pentium N5000 you reference, on the other hand, is an entirely different beast, it is an evolution of those old Intel Atom chips first introduced in the 2007 netboooks, with atrocious single-thread performance, and I would stay away from those if you want a comfortable experience using a general purpose computer. If it is an Intel i5 or i7 laptop, even from as far back as mid-2012, personally I find they still offer good performance; I'm using a Westmere Intel i5 laptop from 2010 :-)

Gordon_Bennett

Exactly. The abuse these units would have take is very likely aged them far more than your typical refurb.

Mikiex

I got a 2nd Gen X1 Carbon for my son (with a 4th Gen i5) for less than this with no screen marks - but you have to watch out for single ones being auctioned to find one cheap and in good condition. The only downside with the 2nd Gen X1 is the screen viewing angle isn't that good, so I would imagine it's the same on this laptop. Its still a good screen clear sharp screen, but I'm so used to IPS angles these days. Other than that it was a bargain.

Ussasx32

I think the price is reasonable if this were a grade A refurb or similar. However with the screen fault it seems false economy as looking at a screen with such bad markings will be off putting at best.The 3rd gen i7 benchmarks worse than the current gen i3's, RAM will be DDR3 over DDR4, battery will be old and not likely to hold much charge. It really would be better to pay more and get the swift at 349 (code 150-SWIFT3) https://uk-store.acer.com/swift-3-ultra-thin-sf314-52-silver 339 https://www.laptopsdirect.co.uk/refurbished-hp-notebook-15-bs158sa-15.6-i5-8250u-4gb-1tb-windows-10-laptop-a1-2pr32ea/version.asp 299 https://www.saveonlaptops.co.uk/NX.GS5EK.011-Acer-Aspire-3-A315-51-36DL_2415860.html

Stuebydoo

Little heads up on these, they have a well known ghosting issue on the screen. It's not permanent screen burn, but it can be a little annoying if you spend a lot of time on a particular website, or using the same program with static images on. Apart from that, they're great, but can be had for much cheaper.

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.

kwg

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.

Murtin

Would agree and add it's pretty ancient technology.

Rich44

CPU has a passmark of 3812 that's faster than: I3 6006u at 3116 Slightly slower than an I5 6200u at 4009 So anyone moaning about the CPU being slow needs to think very very carefully here because it's equal to or better than ANYTHING in this price range new I pretty much guarantee that. The i5 8250u processor has a passmark of 7577 which is obviously much faster but you won't get that on anything under £500. Yes you might need a new battery but those cam be had for a small amount extra and it'd still be a cheap laptop. Up until now my youngest is gaming on a Lenovo X201 and for minecraft & roblox it's perfect ably acceptable. What people fail to realise is that CPU power has been ridiculous for a long time now and even 3/4 generation processors are still more than adequate and as I say this laptop is hugely more powerful & has better build quality than anything with A6/A8/Celeron/Pentium/Atom stuck in it

JustLikeArkwright

Site is offline ATM. I bought a T420 with an i7 from them a couple of years ago. Seemed fine bar a slight crack in the rear (if you 'cuse the expression), which was a little disappointing for a grade A refurb. Still working ok. Would probably buy again if looking for another solid business spec machine.

i_have_crabs

Hmm.. well spotted... that makes the whole miner script a lot more suspicious... especially how it was magically 'fixed' after it was called out on here (skeptical)

Dan__

Hmm for an i5 its a great price. I know its an older model but wondering how slow is this really? Not had a chance to check out reviews or look into it any further. Anyone got one of these, whats the verdict?

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.

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.

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.

I don't think they are loud, but I don't really put them through their paces. I did have an x61 (aka: the greatest pieces of computer hardware that has ever been bestowed upon humans) and it was like a train going past. So, thanks to the wonderful docs and videos out there, changing the fan was easy... But it didn't fix the problem. So took out the logic board and reseated the CPU in fresh thermal paste, again relatively straight forward for a laptop. And that was the problem solved. So if it is far too loud that may be the problem. But bear in mind, this is info coming from 'some neckbeard fanboy on the internet who prefers a 4:3 screen and a command line full of hacky power management scripts' so y'know ymmv, caveat emptor etc etc...

tmoneyt

Another random question, are x220s loud in 2017? i know its a gamble when buying a random refurb, but how loud are they generally like today?

gorgo2015

Grade C. Only 4GB. No thanks. It's easy to say you can find it for only £130, but at what condition! And quite frankly the x230 is not better than the x220. Yes, the processor is marginally better, but the keyboard is atrocious!

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.

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.

Fair comments. The X220 is a (first gen) i5. I wasn't intending to say that you could necessarily get the posted X230 cheaper, rather that if you're looking for this sort of hardware, I have found newandusedlaptops4u to be a reliable source with a good range of machines :)

Yes, impressive bit of technology although higher res screens to tend to need more powerful backlight for a given brightness which is not too good for battery life. Was going to say, the yields for a 4K 15.6" screen must be awful but did the maths: that's about 282DPI which is about equal to a 5.2" phone with a 720p screen (GSMArena lets you search by DPI so about equal to this Samsung Galaxy J5). So it might be possible to cut the panels into 5.2" segments if they fail. Well, not even sure if cutting TFT is possible as I've no idea how the pixels are addressed. But it would be shame if any panels which fail go straight to the bin.

cabstar

True but still amazing they put a 4k screen at 15 inches.

Gkains

Well, now that Window's DPI scaling actually works quite well it's not bad, but at the default settings it's your eyes which would have to be amazing.

Wow 4K in a 15" screen amazing

All top spec with Xeon and Quadro etc. and all VERY VERY expensive. http://thinkwiki.de/P50 http://thinkwiki.de/P50s http://thinkwiki.de/P70 NBC reviews: https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-P50s-20FKS00400-Notebook-Review.161463.0.html https://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-P50-Workstation-Review.158713.0.html http://www.notebookcheck.net/Lenovo-ThinkPad-P70-Workstation-Review.158308.0.html Anyway all very very expensive (did I already mention this?), and now ~2 years old.

It's, what, technically almost two business life cycles old and presumably isn't bundled with a new battery and the problem with laptops that old age isn't the CPU, which is fine, or even that the CPU has a much higher power draw than U-series ultrabook CPUs, the disadvantage with laptops of that age (assuming the vender has cleaned out the matted dust and, vastly less likely, cleaned off and applied fresh thermal paste to the CPU) that use integrated graphics is the comparatively poor performance of Intel HD Graphics 3000, though if it's mainly for office duties and won't often be used away from the desk where it lives, that probably won't matter much to the buyer. If a student looking for a laptop of this age, I would ask your relatives if they have something this old in a cupboard somewhere that they would be prepared to part with for little money, then add the cost of a new battery that holds a charge for longer than an hour or so.

To prefix this if you are getting the T430 then this advice applies, if you're getting the T431 then it doesn't at all. Best option is to keep an eye on HUKD and set up alerts for the term SSD. Price wise you're talking for a good deal on traditional 2.5inch disks of 128gb - £30 256gb - £50-55 512gb - ~£100 mark 1tb - Forget it, not currently good value for money. Those capacities being just placeholders as SSD's do tend to come in a variety of capacities around those figures. Also to add that you can get cheaper less good options and more expensive range topping ones. All depends on your needs. Windows 7 is slower on low end hardware, on the sort of options being discussed here then it's perfectly fine. With reference to 3 years for End of life, it's pretty unlikely that in most use cases that someone would not move on from this machine in that time.

Don't stick with Windows 7, it is slower, less secure and goes end of life in under 3 years. If you can get Windows 10 go for that

Great info, appreciated as looking for a new laptop and I'm on a budget, do you know how much your looking at for an SSD and where to look? Thinking of going for the last laptop in your list ( even though I prefer windows 7) Cheers

Product is simply amazing. But it can be gotten for a lot cheaper. CPU is still absolutely fine for most users, keyboard and trackpad/trackpoint are superb and built quality is awesome. I spilled a lot of water on mine and it was fine once it dried (though I accidentally melted the keyboard off) I'd recommend an SSD for everyone, 8GB of RAM if you are a tab **** and an IPS screen if you like colours. The 93Wh battery lasts all day which is pretty great.

No Joke. I had a wee look the other day. One of them has the "slimline keyboard". Think it has the box as well...I'll sort it out and list it on here and send you a link :)

Especially considering it's only about 1.6KG. The two negatives I can think of is the limited hinge (think it's about 120-130° vs 180° for ThinkPads), and the M.2 slot being 2242. The latter is particularly disappointing if you look at the ~60mm space: [img]http://psg.i.lithium.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/127891i444FB0F0D992DF65/image-size/original?v=v2&px=-1[/img] The fixed it for the G2+ but still only 2260 AFAIK. The equivalent ThinkPad would be the T440s which doesn't have a service door and bizarrely only one SoDIMM slot + 4GB soldered (the T430s had two slots). While once past 4GB it is dual-channel, the max 12GB is asymmetric dual-channel: unsure if that affects iGPU performance but I call that decision bizarre since the biggest difference between Haswell and Ivy Bridge is the iGPU but it really needs dual-channel. This is not an issue for the T440p but then it's not 1.6KG either!

Yes the E6420/30 has a plastic bottom but the rest of the laptop is a huge lump of magnesium alloy, very solid laptops. Your quite right no service hatch, remove the plastic bottom plate for full access to all components. HDD access is also separate without removing the bottom plate. Agree on the 840 G1 though, great great machine, If a little pricey for the spec. I've had one as a work laptop for the last 3yrs now, probably the best work laptop I've ever had (and I've been through a lot in the last 20yrs)

Gkains

The Thinkwiki's both mention 16GB max as well. The English one without any caveats: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Category:T420 While the German one does say that 8GB is the official, although plenty of users have successfully tried 16GB: http://thinkwiki.de/T420

I've just opened the lid and the row of lights on the bottom of the screen were lit up meaning it was working so wondering if just a loose connection to the screen.

Gkains

Nothing to lose (which is what I always say when something is broken I want to fix it myself). While the manuals are obviously the 'proper' way to go, don't forget the 21st century's #1 DAY (Do-Anything-Yourself) tool: youtube videos. If you've never done something like this before, I'd watch those first even if you can't find someone taking your exact model apart. They're good for getting a feel of what's involved. Then use the PDF manual to look up any specifics.

Sp0oner

I still have it here and tried booting it up for the last few days and every time now the screen is failing to come on, can hear Windows successfully boot with the sound played at logon screen. As you say i'll have to find the manual for it and try taking it apart to see if it's fixable.

OK. Don't do the live update. Create USB media from the Microsoft tool. Then it installs OK.

I stopped trying, will try and contact their customer service maybe tomorrow and if I change my mind I will hust install Linux Mint as it's just used for general browsing.

Anyopne else struggling to get the windows 10 update to complete?

Just a little heads-up. If, like me, the Lenovo Support Assistant (or whatever it is called) shows that your warranty has expired, you can fill out THIS FORM and attach the receipt BT shop sent you (it doesn't mention used or refurb). They will add the full 12 months warranty from date of invoice.

drasim

Definitely and the drive isn't as slow as I thought it would be coming from mostly SSD devices the last few years. No plans to replace it with an SSD. So many uses for this laptop
