these are the older models
this is a good deal.
just for full disclosure, these are last years models, but the price is good and the SSD drive will make at least close to as fast as the newer models.
the new T420 starts at $749 for the base unit
the new T520 starts at $779 for the base unit
the new models just came out about 3-weeks ago, and Lenovo has them on sale right now.
