should I get this laptop it seems a bit sketchy?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I'm going to sell my Xbox 1 to get a cheap laptop. I found this refurbished Thinkpad on Amazon but it looks a bit sketchy. I know it's not the best laptop but the specs don't really matter to me as I will just be coding on it and nothing else. Do you guys think I should go for it? There's no way to contact the seller as far as I can see and the specs are really vague it doesn't even say what version of I5 is in it. If anyone knows of a better deal on a Thinkpad that would be great my budget is £160 as that's how much I will get for my xbox 1.

Seems to be first gen core i series CPU. I wouldn't personally buy it. Nobody is this desperate.

Grandpa? is that you?

 

Like I said though I will just be coding on it I have my rig for everything else so specs aren't my first priority. So you don't think it's really worth the risk then?

Don't get it, if you want any Lenovo, don't go any lower than a t440, MAYBE a t430.

The only thing is is that I really want the old IBM style keyboard and even this model as old as it is has started to phase it out with it's squashed design. The only real important thing to me in a laptop is the keyboard, I can't stand laptops really but I used to have an old IBM Thinkpad and I fell in love with the keyboard.
