It's sorta difficult for me to conceptualize consumer vs. business-oriented laptops, desktops, SSDs, etc. So you're telling me if I buy consumer grade I'll be more likely to lose my data, eh? That aside, here's a business/commercial grade laptop for $505. Looking at this deal based on specs alone, you could certainly get a machine with more RAM or a higher native resolution screen for the same price, but it's doubtful that machine would've been tested to military specifications (extreme temperatures, 15,000 foot altitudes, dust, etc.). You can even hot swap batteries without powering down the laptop, meaning with an extra you'd get 17 hours of use before needing to plug into the wall.
Woot dropped the price in this Lenovo ThinkPad T450 for $505 shipped, today only. If you're looking for an incredibly durable, reliable laptop, this could very well be it, provided it meets your specs.
Today's Woot deal on this ThinkPad T450 is within 6 bucks of its all-time low. For those who tend to be a little rough with electronics, this line's built for you.
Sturdy / block-like Lenovo ThinkPad T420 down to a mere $200 on NewEgg's eBay store page today. Ties the all time low last seen in December. The specs are from around 2011, so it's not a new laptop by any means but it'll get you by and being a Lenovo made-for-business laptop you could probably drop this from your hip onto a tile floor and have all the internal parts still working.
How cheap is a 2011 Lenovo made-for-business laptop go for these days? NewEgg is selling this 14-inch refurb T420 for $200 with free shipping on their eBay outlet stor page. Lowest we've seen it go for by $65. Discounts on this model back in 2011 were in the $800 - $900 range.
Need a reliable laptop and don't need the most recent specs? This ThinkPad T420 debuted about four years ago, but would do just fine for most office work. At $200, it's the cheapest we've ever seen it by $65.
Want a dirt cheap laptop with a reliable business feel? Today only this 14-inch ThinkPad T420 at Woot is only $260 + $5 shipping. Lowest price ever by $20. Sure the specs are from 2011, but back in the day this thing would cost around $1,000.
So the specs are from 2011, but if you're in the market for a budget reliable business laptop it'll be hard to beat this ThinkPad T420. Today Woot has this refurb model down to $280 + $5 shipping. A modern T440 with the latest specs will run about $679 (~$400 more).
