Lenovo Thinkpad X280 Laptop: Core i7-8550U, 512GB, 16GB RAM, LTE, Warranty

Regular price £849.00

Item condition:

A used laptop (photos are from the listed unit). Sold on the VAT Margin Scheme (VAT cannot be claimed back). The outside casing looks okay (some wears/mark on the lid/edges/base, etc). The screen looks good. Inside has noticeable wears/marks (the trackpad is noticeably worn; some coating wearing off; the keypad / palmrest are visibly shiny from wears; see photos 2-3, cosmetic only). The laptop comes with the AC charger, in a securely repacked box. Pre-setup, ready to use. It has a 6-month RTB warranty with us only. It may have manufacturer's warranty remaining** (the serial number suggests Lenovo warranty until 2021, tends to be EU wide, local response level may vary, see photo 6). The internal battery holds a high 80% capacity (checked by HWMonitor, estimation only). A powerful laptop in a thin & light design, expect the normal heat/noise.

Please note: this item is traded under HMRC's VAT Margin Scheme - meaning whilst the total price is inclusive of VAT - as per accordance to the HMRC's VAT Margin scheme requirement, the invoice will only display the total price, the VAT portion cannot be separately displayed (as such you will not be able to claim-back the VAT on this purchase).

Peace of mind:

We include a 6-month return to base coverage from the date of arrival.

Our technician will provide support (simply contact us). If the initial remote diagnostics shows the need, we may request for you to get the item to us for servicing (within 30 days, repair/replace, or refund available); after the initial 30 days, a refund will only be arranged if repair or replacement is not possible. After the initial 30 days, the onus of the postage cost is with the buyer.

  1. During the service, we cannot be held responsible for any data loss that may occur, as we may be required to reinstall the Operating System (which will erase previous data). We are unable to offer data recovery. As a good practice, we advise our customers to regularly back up their data. 
  2. This does not apply to cosmetic wear due to use, nor existing issue(s) already noted in the original listing, nor does it cover any consumable part (e.g. the battery). During the service, if damage due to misuse is found, e.g. liquid damage /drops, cracked screen, etc, then the cover will be voided (set out fully in the "additional return policy details" below).
  3. **Our 6-month RTB cover, is separate to any remaining manufacturer's warranty. To be clear, any remaining manufacturer's warranty is not considered a part of this listing's offer, and should be considered as bonus only, should you aim to use it (the rationale is that whilst the Lenovo laptops' warranty follow the serial number & are normally serviceable under such warranty - we have no influence over the manufacturers' warranty policy in the future, should they adjust); as such we stand by our 6-month RTB limited hardware cover only, as a part of this listing.
