Lenovo Thinkpad laptop with Windows 7 starts from £170

Ebay reseller, Spot buyer Ltd, is selling the Lenovo ThinkPad R400 laptop (formerly known as the ThinkPad R61) for £211. The product is refurbished and comes with a one year warranty.

The laptop, which was launched nearly four years ago, comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo P8700 processor clocked at 2.53GHz. This is a dual-core chip with 3MB L2 cache and a TDP of 25W. There's also a 14.1in 1,280 x 800 display, 3GB of RAM, a 160GB hard disk, Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD, Firewire, ExpressCard slot, three USB ports, card reader, VGA and DisplayPort, a six-cell battery, Bluetooth, a DVD combo, Wi-Fi, EPEAT Silver rating, Windows 7 Home Premium OS (with free recovery disc), free Webroot Antivirus (for up to three computers) and 2GB online storage.

There's also the sky blue keys as well as the trademark red TrackPoint.

It's a pity that no English-speaking website has reviewed this great piece of engineering. There's no HDMI port, but this is primarily an office rather than a consumer-oriented product. As for all refurbished products, stocks of this laptop are extremely limited.
