Fair Price for Used Lenovo?

Hi folks, I'm leaving my employer but they offered to sell me my work laptop on the way out. Any sense of a fair price for it? Their offer was $450. There are about 15 months left on the warranty.

My advice, take it. But might not hurt to try and ask if they'd let it go for $400. Great brand/model.

If you need it, not bad at all. Ram is on the low side, if there's an extra expansion slot(1 stick soldered and 1 extra) then I would strongly suggest you upgrade. 8mb is sort of min, unless you only use it for word and web use. Though, if you are into having many tabs open, different browsers, word then that can be low. You should know better what you use it for, since you've had it for a while.

Sounds like a fair price. If you had it since it was new and it has served you well then I'd say go for it, at least you know how it has been handled.

Don't call it a Lenovo. ThinkPads have more cachet than the standard Lenovo fair.

As to the fairness of that price, if you posted it on Craigslist, it would be sold the next day. In fact, if you want to sell one, I would give you $500 for it, if it's in really good shape (assuming it's a black one, and not stinky silver :) ).

There isn't. You're stuck with what you bought it with.

.
PS, if you buy it, make sure it doesn't have any BIOS passwords installed, such as the supervisor password.

Take a look at sites selling Lenovo refurbs to get an idea of market value. E.g. look at the price list on the Bauer Systems site. They always have a wide range of used Thinkpads for sale.
