Meijer offers the refurbished Lenovo ThinkPad X201 Intel Core i5 2.5GHz 12.1" Laptop for $279.99 with free shipping. That's the lowest total price we could find for a refurb elsewhere by $20. Features include an Intel Core i5 2.5GHz processor, 12.1" display, 4GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, and Windows 7 Home.
A 90-day warranty applies, but it's unclear who backs it.
