Ordered the refurbished X230 with the 128GB SSD upgrade.
Received the laptop wrapped in bubble wrapping. Slight scruff marks on the outer casing, top left edge of the laptop lid was chipped. Screen supplied with this model is a matte TN monitor, no dead pixel
System boots extremely fast from the SSD. Did a check with Microsoft Safety Scanner and found a trojan and a worm in the system. No Lenovo Superfish found. System was unable to receive Microsoft updates as the updates utilities were disabled in Windows Services. Highly recommend you to reformat and reinstall Windows if you are purchasing this system
Overall, decent value for a refurbished Thinkpad
Update: Power seems to cut off randomly, either with battery and AC power connected OR battery stand-alone. Will troubleshoot to identify the causeMar 07, 2019
