It works great for me. I run Linux on mine and it works great for the most part. Only a few comments to make:

>If you buy a used one on ebay, make sure to bid on auctions instead of buy it now. Within a week you should be able to get a great one at a much better price than buy it now (I got one with an i7, discrete video card, 500 GB hard drive, 16 GB ram, 1600x900 matte screen).
>Don't expect the battery life to be amazing unless you buy a new one directly from Lenovo or something. These are older laptops and most used ones will come with used batteries (mine came with an extended battery pack and it was still pretty worn).
>I believe the default screen is 1366x768 but there are screen upgrades out there for 1600x900 and if you look around you'll find many T420's with screens that size.
>There are also both wxga and matte screens (wxga has better blacks but can be more prone to glare).
>On Linux you will need to manually set some key bindings for some of the special buttons (eg. volume up/down) if you want them to work.
>You can manually tweak the touchpad configuration for it to work to your liking (personally I'm not a touchpad kind of person anyways so I just carry around a small wireless mouse).
>I believe you can remove the disk drive and add another hard drive into the bay if you want. Some on ebay will have this setup.

Personally the only major problems I had with the T420 are mentioned here: >>62092652
I am not sure if they're unique to my setup or if they're common to other T420 Linux users who want a discrete only setup.

Oh shit, I had one of those back in highschool.

Good laptops, lasted some 4 years of school day abuse and incompetent IT dumbasses.

Was great having a laptop to game on until the school installed spyware that let teachers look through the webcam when the students were connected to the internet, even when at home.

Why shouldn't I buy L440 instead of T440p?

>both have socketed upgradeable CPUs
>both have similar dGPU options (720M and 730M)
>both have batteries that extend out the back instead of down
>both can handle tasty 1080p IPS panel

I bought one recently for 80 bucks. VPCE823FM. Sound card needed replacing (2/3 USB ports were smashed) - 30 bucks. Upgraded the RAM to 16GB - 50 bucks. i7 (620m) -25 bucks.

Battery is dead, but I consider that a security feature. Dies the second you unplug it, which is nice for boot encryption. Could have replaced it for 30 bucks though.

All in all, I got a Vaio, which I always wanted for some reason, and made it pretty nice for under 200. Of course, I could have just gotten a fairly decent, similarly specced elitebook for around that price

Italianon here. Pretty much same situation. I've been lurking every single tpg post for like 10 days so I made myself a little culture.
I was originally considering something around €500 but in the end I decided to opt for something cheaper and sturdier, so I could play around with it swapping components and learn GNU/Linux without fear. At first I wanted to get an x230 for the better screen and battery life, but I felt like 12 inches were too small. I ended up buying a t430 base model for €150 so I could taste the last tpg meme. I'll obviously add ram and an SSD and maybe in the future I'll upgrade the CPU.
I bought it some days ago from subito.it and I'm waiting for it to arrive.
That was my choice but if you want something that works out of the box I got suggested some threads ago to go for a t450 or x250.

Heya fellas
I'm deciding between an X230, T420, and T430
All the ones I'm looking at are in my budget and have nearly identical specs. The T420 is in the best condition with a 2nd-gen i5 running at 3.5ghz and 4gb of ram, and for worse condition, the X230 and T430 have identical specs (8gb of ram, 3rd gen 2.6ghz i5 (They might be different generations though)) except for the X230 having a 128gb SSD.
I've never owned a Thinkpad before, so I don't think I'll miss anything from the T420 that seems to be such a big deal.

>Budget: ~$300 USD
>Location: Southeast USA
>Size: Small enough to fit in a bookbag with textbooks and shit
>Performance: Would prefer it to be able to handle any bloated IDE I throw at it while also keeping 10 or so Firefox tabs open at the same time under Ubuntu
>Other requirements: Going to be using this for CompSci in college, so it being durable enough to last 4 years of whatever is important. Decent battery life (~6 Hours or so) is important, but I figure a refurb might not have a good battery, so I'll buy a new one if Lenovo still sells it. If Ubuntu out of the box has drivers that are compatible with everything inside, that's a gigantic plus. I don't know enough about Linux to be fucking around with that. I'll settle for following tutorials tailored to specific machines, though.

Thinking of buying a t440p and upgrade to 1080p ips and change the trackpad. Going to use it for compsci at uni. I've found a t440p for 300 euro, it's used for 1 year, and it says it has 2.5/3 hour battery life. Is that normal? If not, does it just need a new battery?

But holy hell does it feel cheap, the plastic is just some hard, creaking stuff, it's matte, but it still get marks like a shiny plastic would. Plus the trackpad and keyboard are awful.

Good thing it's gonna be docked most of the time.

Swap the trackpad for a t450s which has buttons and you've got a thinkpad with swappable batteries, strong FHD IPS screen, long battery life, good port selection and a dGPU that's fit for casual gaming.

No it's not the same, flash that and your x220 will crash with no survivors.

I know you can on the t430, not sure about the t430s. I'd hazard to guess you probably can't.

For all the other benefits and the fact I'd have a 20 series as a second machine I think I could live with it. The giant delete key and the ergonomics around that cluster plus the browser nav buttons being swapped for pgup/dn is what I'd miss the most. But fuck it.

Bought a "refurbished" thinkpad t420 from Amazon last week for $200. The screen and the keyboard are pretty new looking. Everything works pretty swell, with a few exceptions which I will explain.

I have FreeBSD 11.1 installed and I also tested out Windows 10. The DVD-rom drive doesn't work well. It's hard to get it to read anything. I just ordered a hard drive caddy and a hard drive to replace the optical media drive entirely. I'll probably put Windows 10 on the older hard drive (it has 3 years of life on it already) and then install FreeBSD again on the new harddrive.

The battery only has about a 3rd of the Watt hours it's supposed to have when new. So I'll probably have to buy a new battery before I go on a trip with it.

Next time I want to buy a used laptop I'm definitely going to consider craigslist. I'd hardly consider this "refurbished" laptop in like new condition.

Does anyone know how to disable the super obnoxious beeping that happens with this shit?

In the bios the only options under beeps and alarm are keyboard and password beeps, both of which make no difference. Everytime I turn on my laptop with critical battery it attempts to deafen both me and anyone else within a 50m vicinity.

It's a thinkpad 13, but I imagine other models might have the same issue.

How about being in one of the schools that had it? I should know because I was OP.

It was barely on the news but because the company that technically owned the laptops and had the software installed was a multi billion dollar firm and was essentially keeping the city alive, it never reached outside of the city.

I talked to friends not even 50 miles out of town and nobody in the next city over had even heard of it. Here at least, it was kept with a tight lid on it.

The software itself was some parent computer monitoring bullshit. It was really sketchy because there was little to no information about it online. You couldn't even buy a license or copy online,. You had to order it through the phone. And what made it really sketchy was the fact that it not only allowed access to webcams, but turned off the light that lit up when the camera was on. It did other stuff like let teachers take control of the co.puter, see their screen, displayed their screen, et cetera.

I dont remember how true what I heard was, but apparently it started with a student being suspended for a teacher catching him share what she thought were pills, but turned out to be tic taks through the web cam. It went from there when a parent who was a lawyer, heard the story through his daughter, ordered a copy of the program, and found what its capabilities were.


How to turn Admin back on, restore it from being removed, how to flash and roll back the computers security and firewall, how to corrupt the program itself that was the cause of all this, proxies to get around the internet blocks.

It sounds completely unrealistic, completely fictional but I can assure, truth is stranger than fiction.
