Are Lenovo Scratch And Dent Laptops packaged as new ?

Do they come with protective film and foam ? Is it packaged basically like a brand new Laptop ?

 

Are the keyboards and trackpad replaced ?

 

Is the OS re-installed from the previous owner ?

 

Does the OS have a new key or is it the exact same OS from the previous owner ?

What are you talking about exactly? If you mean the refurbished units they are remanufactured to new condition as far as I know.

1) They are packaged in the same manner as you would get if the laptop was new.

2) Keyboard and trackpad are not replaced unless they are defective.

3) OS is usually reinstalled, it doesn't need a new key, as the OEM image is activated with a volume license key.

Every single ThinkPad that I've ever received from Lenovo's outlet looked brand new, and if were not for the labels on the bottom could pass as an entirely unused item.

 

The OS was freshly installed on all of them as well.

 

YMMV.
