      Looks like a good deal for a I5 with good spec's but I've never owned Levono hardware so can't speak on reliability/RMA .

      I purchased this when the Ivy Bridge models first launched. Now that is almost a year ago and I tell you this thing BLAZES.

      I even play games with it, under extreme stress I have not had temps above 73. I replaced the HDD with an SSD and I have also had increased battery life, speed of course and lower overall temps. It really is a fantastic deal. I have owned many Lenovo products and never had to RMA, fortunately. Has been very reliable and an amazing deal for this price.

      My understanding is Levono use to be partner with IBM making think pad, but IBM has got out of laptop/PC business long ago so now it 100% china brand with some IBM technology and not PARTS.

      for future reference...

      i bought this deal, received it yesterday (only 3 days to go half way across the US), and did a hardware checkout last night.

      i can't tell the laptop is a refurb. the screen is pristine (no scratches or marring), the keyboard is spotless, and the internal fan shows no dust (which was clearly seen when i opened it up to pull the hard drive out to back it up before blowing it away with a linux install). by all appearances, it's brand new except for the "refurbished" sticker on the underside. i won't hesitate to purchase refurb from lenovo.

      and to top it all off, all the hardware works with linux (eg webcam, bluetooth, nic, wifi), except the touchpad only communicates right-clicks (though there's a vertical line at the bottom of the trackpad as if to separate left and right clicks). not a big deal as this laptop will nearly always be used with a mouse.
