Is there something wrong with the CPU?
Core i7-3520M is supposed to be 2.9 GHz

Seller shows Intel Core i7-3520M 2.50GHz

well, if it's a 3520M, then it's a T430, then it's 2.9GHz.
guess them refurbisher/resellers have too many to work on, they just give out relatively *right* information instead of accurate for faster turnover.
if you read through ebay description filled out by seller, the model says T420-xxxxx

so, it's a gamble. I would buy one if any of elderlies in my family need a laptop

That kind of resolution is mediocre on a 11" chromebook, on a 14" laptop it's abysmal.

That battery is dead by now. So, if you actually want to use it you need a new battery and an SSD.

well, last year I bought a T410, 2010-2011 laptop. My mother has no complain with the battery life though, strange. Maybe it was replaced, cuz they refurbish it?
If i buy something like this, I wouldn't use it as a real *laptop*, just leave it on the kitchen counter or garage bench. guess the favorable feeling towards a ThinkPad is still the appearance and sturdiness. a classy thing somehow.

I wish they would tell us if they put in new battery for these Manufacturer Refurb laptop.
I just canceled my order because I don't want to deal with dead laptop battery. Good deal but the 5 year old battery killed it.

"This Coupon is a 20% discount valid from 6:00 AM PST November 13, 2017 until 8:00 AM PST on November 20, 2017."

You wish. The screen quality is bad on all these Thinkpads, t420/430/430s, no matter the resolution.
