The IBM T40 Centrino is definetly an awesome laptop and I'm happy with my purchase. IBM's have always been a great laptop and I wouldn't switch for any other computer...ever.

I bought this for my daughter when my granddaughter was born. Clearly, it works great for chatting with her sister and updating her Facebook status. But it's not so good at sending me the proper quantities of photos that a grandma really NEEDS.

This is the third time in nine years that I've bought a used Thinkpad and they all stood up to lots of abuse and have lasted longer than you would expect.

I am retired and my hobby seems to have become setting up a laptop network in my home. (No snickering). I currently have two Toshibas, one Acer, and 7 Lenovos. The Lenovos break down as follows, a T61, a G550 and 5 T42s. See the pattern?? The T42s are favorite and this is being written on a T42. I think they were the best design of the era, great screen, light, powerful, and easy to repair and find parts for. Even drip holes if you spill coffee. Titanium case. Best keyboard on the planet. Best touchpad (touchpad on the G550 sux). Experts will tell you the machine is outdated. They lie. You are not going to edit HD video but you can watch HD with VLC or SMPLAYER. Does virtually everything a new machine does except maybe fancy gaming. And the cost is about equal to a tank of gas. For those of you brave enuf to follow this advice, here are some hints: run XP, its works fine. You can load 7 but you dont need to. Use a tweaker to kill processes you dont need, like XP-Tune. If you need parts, go to Ebay. Cheap and plentiful. Max out the ram to 2gb and put in a larger drive, cheap. Forget about the solid state drives for now, too exotic. Renew the original battery (about $40) if you intend to travel. Also renew the CMOS battery ($5). You can find OEM DVD drives for under $30 if that is an issue. In fact, buy two of these machines, keep the second as a spare.

This is a great laptop. I didn't buy mine, I was able to salvage it from my school, which was gonna tear it apart for some sculpture project, and I was able to take it home and successfully fixed it.

It's has an awesome speed rate to it, I can start using internet in 1min 20sec from pressing the power button (from shut off mode - full boot running Windows XP with 512MB RAM), and I can open iTunes in less than a minute unlike my other computers.

The only problem I have is when I try doing too much on it, it will shut off just like a circuit breaker without warning, but this will be fixed when I get a battery for it.

Mine has a 1.7GHz Pentium M, 768MB RAM (I upgraded from 512MB a couple days ago), and a 40GB HDD. It works great, and I heard great stories about how well these machines run with Windows 7, and I will want to try updating the OS on it. Hope everyone else is enjoying theirs' just as much as I am mine.

I wanted a laptop for programming and browsing . I have being doing programming in my office using T30 think pad for past 2 years. I see that IBM thinkpad are sturdy and have excellent quality. There fore i decided to go for a refurbushed laptop( as my budget was low) .
The laptop was in good condition( No Scratch marks). I am very happy with this purchase.

I bought two of these laptops. One for my son and another for my husband. Both are sufficient for their needs - homework, writing, surfing the Web, etc. I have no complaints. The price was right and the seller was responsive and timely with the delivery.

I bought a laptop from this company and less than 45 days later the Mother Board went bad. Because of the beep code I did some basic troubleshooting and swapped out the RAM. This guy says that he will not help me out at all because I swapped out the RAM. This computer was totally inoperable after 45 days and I was ripped off with no support from this company. I am out 211.00 dollars
