14" Lenovo Thinkpad T420, Core i5-2540m, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD, New Battery, Windows 10 Pro, 12 Mth Warranty *Refurb* is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Lemon refurb In all fairness the computer itself is pretty good quality and almost as new, but due to being sold this product without a valid operating system I can't even take it into work due to company policy thus making it completely useless for its intended use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The product works well. The product was a little heavier than I expected. I later found other products that were better but no more expensive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my use Added a SDD in place of Wi-Fi and bam. This is now a beast for a bargain

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good laptop,but Received mine in good condition and good time, only a couple of small scuffs on the outside of the lid but the screen and keyboard area clean and unmarked. But be aware that originally these were sold with a large range of options so you don't always get what you expect, I lost out. Mine came with a 1600x900 screen as a positive but no Firewire Port (and this was needed) and a battery with only 47% life left. The lack of Firewire I can live with but even the sales headline states New Battery supplied and mine has not got it.

Can you pls tell me what the 12 month warranty covers? I'm a student who had his laptop stolen and am looking for a suitable replacement. I am in Italy at the moment so, will delivery here minus VAT be a problem? Thank you.
