They look to be closing these out with next gen now available. I used Ebay because Paypal worked better for my purchase.
If you're like me and only buy Thinkpads for their key and pad arrangement, it's a VG deal that I took advantage of. If you don't need this build quality, or layout that's great but please lets not compare length of our connectors here.
If you need 512ssd and 16gb, that's available for a bit over $300 more. Not as good a deal and not required for my uses.
