Performance You Can Count On

With the responsiveness and efficiency of the Intel® Core™ processors, the Lenovo ThinkPad T470 lets you switch effortlessly between your favorite apps—increasing your productivity, creativity, or entertainment levels along the way.

SSD Storage

Unlike a regular mechanical hard drive, a Solid-State Drive (SSD) has no moving parts and performs faster—including booting up (nearly 3X quicker), opening files (as much as 30% faster), and transferring files (around 200 MB/s, compared to 50-120 MB/s).  As well as being quieter, it’s also more reliable, more rugged, and more secure.

Tested for Battle, Built for Success

Every ThinkPad laptop undergoes 12 stringent military tests and over 200 quality checks. So, you can rest easy knowing that your T470 is more than capable of surviving the bumps and bruises of everyday life.

Now you can boost your productivity from anywhere.

For On-the-Go Productivity and Entertainment

Weighing around 1.58 kg and just 19.95 mm thin, the T470 gives you portability, without sacrificing performance. Its 14.0" FHD display delivers sharp, vibrant visuals—perfect for working on the go or kicking back to enjoy a movie.

Grading Criteria

All laptops will have passed the functionality testing, and are ready to use out of the box. Our (cosmetic) grading criteria is there to make it easier for you to navigate our listings. We provide further details on each listing when necessary to make sure you have as complete information as possible. We grade laptops by four areas: screen, inside, outside and battery. The area which receives the lowest grading is what the overall grading will be. For instance if the screen is a B but for all other areas it is A, it would be a Grade B laptop.

Note: Our laptops are not shipped in the original box.

Grade A is best described as 'Like-new'. This means that the laptop is almost new or open-box. The laptop may have very small wears and/or marks, however these must be very limited or almost unnoticeable.


Grade B+ is a laptop with a very good condition screen. It may have some wear on the keypad, bezel or trackpad and could have some visible wear on the exterior such as the lid or base. Tests on the battery will show over 60% of the battery charge available.


Grade B describes a laptop with a good condition screen, with faint pressure marks, surface marks and up to 2 stuck pixels. It may have some wear on the keypad, bezel or trackpad and could have some visible wear on the exterior such as the lid or base. Tests on the battery will show over 60% of the battery charge available.


Grade C is used to describe any laptop with a screen that could be described as in a functional condition (visible pressure marks & surface marks, over 2 stuck pixels). There could be heavy wear on the keyboard, trackpad or palmrest and there may be heavy wear and small marks on the exterior such as the lid or base. Tests on the battery will show over 60% of the battery charge available.

Payment

When shopping on our website, you have a few payment options.  

Standard Payment: PayPal

With PayPal you can either pay by signing into your own PayPal account, or you can choose to pay by debit or credit card. PayPal allows for easy payment from Visa, MasterCard, Maestro and American Express cards. 

Finance Option: Klarna

A recent addition for us at CruiseTech is the option to pay using Klarna, one of Europe’s largest banks and payment solution providers, giving you the ability to access Klarna’s innovative payment options. You now have two new finance options:
  1. You can either pay 30 days later
  2. Or you can split the cost of your purchase across two months, called ‘slice it in 3’ (on purchases up to £1000 only).
How does Klarna help?
By opening up a few new ways to pay, you can choose whichever option suits you best. Importantly, the payments options available through Klarna on our website, do not charge interest, meaning our customers can make the choice to pay now, pay in 30 days, or pay over the next 2 months without spending a penny more.
How do I use Klarna?
You'll find Klarna finance option towards the very end of the checkout (see the screenshot below).

Customer Support: Repair & Return

Repair / Servicing option explained:

  • The products that we sell have been thoroughly tested, before they're listed on our store. However, as with all electronic items, it may rarely need servicing. Following a remote diagnostics check, it may be that our technicians note that your device needs a servicing. If so, we may need the unit to back with us for servicing.
  • Our technicians will be here to assist you with the hardware related queries (e.g. my laptop doesn't switch on). Software package support should be directed at your software vendor (e.g. Solidworks, Excel, etc), who will have a better overview. Our technicians may be able to assist with some basic software queries;and if they find the queries needs to be addressed by the software vendors, they may signpost (that way you'll receive more specific support).

  • We are unable to offer any data backup / restore / recovery service. Additionally, we may need to data wipe the computer, as a part of the repair. As a good practice, we advise our customers to regularly back up their data.

  • The repair time time estimate is 2-5 days (excluding the transit time), unless otherwise stated. The return timetable is the following: once the returned items are safely & checked by our technicians. The refund will be issued within 2 business days of the receipt of the item.

Repair & Refund Explained:

  • Within the first 30 days of the delivery: 1) repair; 2) replace (best effort basis); or 3) refund options are available (we'll cover the logistics cost).

  • After the initial 30 days of the delivery: a refund will only be arranged if neither repair nor replacement are possible.

  • After the initial 30 days of the delivery: the onus of the postage cost is with the buyer (for repairs).

  • After the first 6 month of the delivery: the repair/replacement will be quoted options only.

Return option:

  • if the reason of return is "changed mind / I didn't like it", then we would expect our customer to cover the return postage cost.

  • If the item was not as described / does not function upon the delivery (you may need to drop it off at the Post Office), then we will arrange the return postage option at our cost.

Return Courier Liability Explained:

  • Peace-of-mind insured return courier option: is available at £13.80 (deducted from the refund); if the item was not as described / does not function, the we'll cover this within the first 30 days (after the initial 30 days, the onus of this cost is with the customer). From the moment of the collection, the liability is with us (this requires for the item to be sufficiently packaged, please check with us first, if you need advice on packaging).

  • The customer may return their orders, using a courier of their own choosing. However, for the avoidance of doubt: if the return courier service is not paid directly for by us, then the customer is solely responsible for their parcel's safe transit (this is because the liability for the safe transit would be between the sender and the courier company, in case there the return is lost/damaged during the transit). Where the customer has paid for their return courier services themselves: we're unable to refund if the parcel is lost (the liability would be solely between the customer & their courier), this is the same case, if the parcel was damaged by the customers' courier service.

EU/International customers: mark as "RETURNED GOODS" to avoid any Customs charges. We are not responsible for any charges imposed on packages returned unless otherwise agreed upon, the refund will be processed through the same payment method you used to make your original purchase.

*unless damaged during the initial shipping, in which case let us know within 7 days of the delivery.

However, you're based outside the UK & want to order from us - you can order the same items via our eBay store for global shipping (the price may vary marginally, due to different platform selling fees).

Our eBay Store link: https://www.ebay.co.uk/str/cruisetechpremiumrefurbishers

Buying: What about local collection / viewing?

  • Pre-COVID position: Most of our orders are online, as result this is where we focus on. We do not offer collection on any order. However, we may rarely be able to offer to view of our laptops locally, upon arrangements in advance

  • Since the COVID-19 situation: no local viewing facility / collection is offered. We'll update this page if the situation changes.

(disclaimer: we're based in the upstairs office only in the photo above & are separate from the store below).

Buying: Can I use 3rd Party Re-Shipping Centre / PO box?

  1. We have the right to cancel any order to a 3rd party shipping centre / PO Boxes / or reshipping centre unless we've agreed to these before the order. This is because these service tends to increase the shipping risk.

  2. Customers with a non-standard UK address, for example Armed Forces, should contact us in advance of purchasing, as there may be a surcharge or alternative method/steps of postage required.

VAT could be confusing enough! Most people will not have heard of the VAT Margin Scheme, and will only be aware of the more common form of VAT - Standard VAT. Hopefully the explanation beneath clears things up for you.

What is standard VAT?
Standard VAT is the one you’ll have come across already and are aware of. It is currently charged at 20% and if you’re a VAT registered business you may be able to claim this back. 

What is the VAT Margin Scheme?
The VAT Margin Scheme is frequently used for second hand goods / refurbished products - where the price you see includes the VAT, but the VAT cannot be claimed back, nor displayed separately on the invoice. 

How does the VAT Margin Scheme affect you?
If you’re a consumer, then it doesn’t affect you at all! The price you see is the price you pay. 
If you're VAT registered businesses (or other such organisation that could normally claim back the VAT on eligible purchases), then you will not be able to claim back the VAT on the goods sold on the VAT margin scheme. You might sometimes find it more economical to buy the same product on the Standard VAT scheme.
We recognise that businesses (B2B), and household consumers (B2C) often need different products. As a result, we’re gradually stocking more business focused laptops on the Standard VAT scheme, whilst keeping the VAT margin scheme range for the consumers.
