Very nice from the specs - including USB 3 ports.....but (do I dare say?)
No HDMI

I bought a similar refurb Dell E6430S (I paid $50 more) upgraded memory to 8GB and put in a 256GB SSD.
It's lightning fast and I do use the HDMI port on occasion.

Just for compoarison sakes. If you don't need HDMI it would be a dandy spare PC with Windows 10.

not to be picky, but this should be $129.99 like some of Arrow Direct's other offerings. for $150 i would expect 1 model year newer processor. again not being picky, just having browsed Arrow Direct's offerings and the deals that have been popping up, $150 is slightly more expensive than it should be

Lenovo says it came wit the following options:
14.0" HD (1366 x 768) (200 NITS)
14.0" HD+ (1600 x 900) (250 NITS)

I had one of these for a few years at work. Display was underwhelming to say the least -- only thing I did not like on it. The rest of the machine was solid - -ours had SSDs.

I have a couple of them and they have mini-display ports so you can get a mini-DP to hdmi cable and plug it into a TV/monitor.

Got one from craigslist years ago for $100, very solid build. Very heavy and screen is no good. If you use it at home with external monitor. Its a pretty decent machine.

Had this for my work machine up until last year. Not the prettiest thing but worked fine until I needed full disk encryption which is just murder on mechanical drives. Never had any other issues.

Processor on the SSD model is slightly worse, but hardly noticeable. It's a Sandy Bridge @2.50GHz versus Ivy Bridge @ 2.60GHz. Very, very minor differences between the two.

Yup, much better.

FYI, ebay is usually the best place for these used business laptops. Wait for the 15% coupon to make it slicker of course Smilie
