I recently came across a source for some 'New Open Box" X230 ThinkPads. I am told that these machines were part of a large corporate order but that they were not actually needed and were kept boxed up as spares until all of the machines were recently upgraded to newer models.
These machines are absolutely brand new from a hardware standpoint and are still in their original factory boxes. Machines were manufactured in May 2013. Model # is 2325-UG9. Full specs can be found here:https://www.cnet.com/products/lenovo-thinkpad-x230-2325-12-5-core-i5-3320m-windows-7-pro-32-bit-4-gb-ram-320-gb-hdd-series/specs/
The machines have been powered on, tested, and the hard drives erased for security purposes. The machines are ready for you to install the operating system of your choice. I am running Windows 7 on both of mine and they work flawlessly!
I have several of these units available and am asking $350 plus $25 S&H per machine.
Please contact me via the forum or email if interested.
