While I can't speak to buying refurb computers, I've never had issues with
Lenovo laptops.  I'll take the trackpoint over a trackpad any day (can't
stand trackpads, actually).  In my experience, Lenovos can take a good
kicking and keep on working.

As you can well imagine, buying refurb is definitely "caveat emptor".
