Lenovo ThinkPad 14” Laptop with Intel Core i5-3320M Processor (Refurbished)
Equipped with a webcam, DVD reader, USB 3.0 ports, and a speedy dual-core processor, this laptop can help you do everything from burn a disk of all your favorite songs to video chat with your friends across the globe. And, because it’s only 14”, you can easily pack it up and bring it to get stuff done wherever you go.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with about 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality similar to what you’d see on an HDTV with 720p HD resolution. Such sharpness and clarity also make the text on your favorite news and social-media sites clear and easy to read.
Video Chat with Anyone, Anywhere
A built-in webcam can make it feel like people miles away are in the room with you, helping you connect more clearly than with a phone call or email. Collaborate with colleagues in other offices, listen as your niece or nephew rapturously explains their finger painting, or laugh every time your friend’s cat walks across their keyboard.
Speedy Data Transfers with USB 3.0
A USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port transfers files to and from your computer at more than 10 times the speed of USB 2.0, which is especially helpful when you have a gigantic project on a flash drive, or you want to backup all of your files to an external hard drive. If your connected device uses USB 2.0, the port can still move bits and bytes with no sweat at 2.0 speeds, thanks to its backward compatibility.
Windows 10 Professional
Windows 10 Professional meets the demands of business-minded users with a suite of productivity and security software. Keep calendars and emails organized with the Cortana digital assistant, take notes directly on webpages with Microsoft Edge, and leave the office with peace of mind knowing that your data is safely secured under multiple layers of digital security. And if you forget to do something before heading home, you can remotely log on to your work computer to tie up loose ends.

The Lenovo brand name may only be about a decade old, but the company can trace itself to one of the most important technological advances in history: the advent of the personal computer. In 1981, IBM released its first PC, one that would soon set the standard for personal computing around the world. But in the early 2000s, IBM was ready to focus on other types of products, and so Lenovo—a Hong Kong company formed in the mid-1980s—stepped in and bought IBM’s personal computer division, including the iconic Thinkpad. Lenovo’s reach hasn’t stopped with PCs: the company is now a top producer of smartphones, tablets, smart TVs, and servers.
