As you can see from the pictures and video the laptop is in Excellent condition, I have only noticed the following very minor cosmetic imperfections & signs of use.

  • Very minor slight scuffs / scratches to the lid 
  • Very minor slight scuffs / scratches to the bottom case.
  • There is a very slight tiny hair line crack to the front middle of the bottom case. Extremely slight I only noticed it when removing the case to service the fan, as you can see in the product picture I have further secured this with a piece of colour matched vinyl skin this is the same material as used on some of the other ThinkPad lids very strong and durable
  • Slight shine to the trackpad purely cosmetic the trackpad works just fine

The keyboard has been fully tested and cleaned with a sanitizer solution  o remove any dirt and grime! All exteriors of the laptop are then cleaned with a sanitizer solution using a microfiber cloth. The screen is cleaned using a non-smear solution and a specialized LCD screen cleaning cloth. All ports are checked and tested as working.
