      bethparker, thank you for encouraging people to buy used tech. It really saves money and helps keep perfectly good electronics out of landfills.

      My 2 cents: ThinkPads are popular in corporate environments and have proven to be extremely durable.

      Thanks for so much information. I need a laptop so I can write anywhere and I cannot afford a new one, so this Lenovo with the larger screen is just right. I'll troll through Ebay and Amazon and see what they have.
