The lid has had a new colour matched vinyl skin applied so as you can see it looks brand new very clean and tidy, this is custom made in the UK specifically for Lenovo ThinkPad's not the cheap coverings you can generally buy elsewhere. There was no actual damage to the original lid surface just a few minor scuffs and scratches

As you can see from the video and pictures the laptop is in Good Condition, I have only noticed the following minor cosmetic imperfections and signs of use

  • A few scuffs / scratch marks to the bottom case
  • A little shine to some of the keys, purely cosmetic all keys have been tested and work just fine and the keyboard has been fully sanitized.
  • The screen has three tiny "pin head" size spec marks to the upper middle only shows on a bright white background most probably keyboard impressions, this does not affect the touch screen at all, shown in the video but very hard to make out

Preparation, Diagnostics & Cleaning

The internal fan has been removed cleaned & new thermal paste applied to the heat sink then re-seated hoovered & sprayed with compressed air to ensure of a cool quiet running experience as you can see from the good processor temperature reading via the Core Temp App shown in the product picture. The motherboard is checked for any signs of liquid spills hoovered & sprayed with compressed air to remove any dust or debris. The keyboard has been fully tested hoovered & cleaned with a sanitizer solution using a toothbrush to remove any dirt and grime! All exteriors of the laptop are then cleaned with a sanitizer solution using a microfibre 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

The SSD have been checked using the Crystal Disk application and as you can see in the product picture it reports Good health with a good temperature. The laptop then has a full diagnostic scan to ensure there are no failings or issues, as you will see in the below video it passed without any issues. It is then left to run for at least 24 hours without been allowed to sleep or hibernate to ensure no issues develop.


This model has one internal battery Windows has indicated 11:31 after a full charge, the laptop has then been left to run on the battery for 2 hours after which Windows indicated 8:43 hours remaining @ 82%.

The battery has also been scanned with Battery Info View application which reports a battery health of 74.8%

This will vary depending on usage and settings and is an indication only I offer no guarantees on the battery as it is a used consumable item.

All Windows, System & Bios Updates are applied at the time of listing so it’s ready to go!

As you will see the laptop has a tamper evident security seal on the rear of the laptop if this is removed or damaged this may invalidate the warranty and return process
