- There's a long ongoing deal thread about the refurbs sold by IBM-Lenovo-Americas, for those interested on buyer feedbacks.
- For some weird reason, IBM lists HD+ (1600x900) resolution screens as 'SXGA wide angle' (1600x900 = WSXGA+ or WXGA+ according to Lenovo)

- For more info (e.g., verifying screen resolution, returns, etc.) before ordering, contact IBM : http://www-304.ibm.com/shop/americas/we ... langId=124 [phone & email] -- don't waste your time sifting trough websites that these laptops are user-configurable and most TP datasheets are generic or incomplete
** Please test your laptops thoroughly, and if it has a defective part, -for example, worn battery or non functioning component, then request that part exchanged for a good one. It's particularly worth requesting a battery exchanged if it's too cycled or can't hold more than let's say 70%-80% of its nominal maximum charge.
*** There's a FHD T530 on sale at ca.refurb.io going for $640, FYI
My bad about the resolution. I've bought several W's from IBM and all have had HD+ displays when the description said WSXGA wide angle. Even the peeps on the ongoing thread say the same.
