Purchased a grade B refurb and apart from the fact that laptop had no original box, could not notice anything on the laptop itself, looked and performed as good as new! Laptop itself is great, proper workhorse and highly recommend for work /school.
Will definitely be using again and most likely if need arises then probably same laptop too
I picked up a good deal with this Lenovo. Having purchased brand new, high end Lenovo's for work and being disappointed previously, this smaller lower spec. PC was a pleasant surprise and compensation to the brand. Unlike the new ones, the build quality was good; solid feedback from the keyboard, tight fitting USBs, excellent hinges, quality plastics, etc. The refurbished Grade B was also very high: The trackpad and keys are the normal indicators of wear, and these were both in very satisfactory condition; showing little / light use. The only telltale signs were the badging and smell of the unit (I presume cleaner / polish used). The PC came with Win10 Home as std. realising that this doesn't support the Bitlocker encryption, I installed Pro...and again was pleasantly surprised that it used the key from home (essential a free upgrade).
Laptop was described as grade B, to me it is an A.
Original charger, excellent battery life.
A backlight keyboard which is an unexpected bonus.
Very happy customer. My 4th purchase.
Although it was meant fir Windows 10, I was able to install Xubuntu 20.04.02 with no problem at all and it botts up an performs really well and I’m very satisfied with it.
