I've got a cheap Thinkpad T420. Refurbished one picked up from eBay for about £175. I pulled the main HDD out if mine and out an SSD in. Battery life isn't great but it's all I really need in a cheap everyday laptop.

@D9fred95: it all depends on how good nick is it in, what do you plan to use it for, and what is the price.

General use mostly, nothing special. I'm not going to use it for gaming so that's not an issue.

It costs $229 Canadian.

If it's pretty clean and faultless that's a good price.

It says the battery life cannot be guaranteed but it supposedly holds an excellent charge. Would this be an issue?

Shouldn't be, replacement batteries are cheap anyway.
