X201 deal?

2016-10-19, 13:00 PM

My local MicroCenter has a refurbished X201 (open box) for $120...Windows 7 Pro, 4 GB RAM, 128GB SSD...not sure if its the tablet version or not (says X201 without the "T"), but pics show a tablet version.


Just wondering if people would still recommend this as a good deal?

It seems X201 isn't tablet, unless it emphasized T or Tablet. What's the CPU (i5 or i7)? If the CPU is i7, you can double check its battery. X201 i7 Tablet comes with 8 cells 58Wh battery (42T4658).

I've been using X201 (tablet version) since newly launched in 2010. I've no complaints of X201. I'd suggest to check the cycle counts of the bundled battery. You may need to source a brand new one.
