I have two questions about purchasing a refurbished laptop (so not sure if they are appropriate for this group).
I bought a refurbished lenovo thinkpad from Micro Center in New York.
Although it was considered "refurbished", the battery was essential dead. Instead of 4-6 hr or longer, its fully charged state only lasted for 1.5 hrs.
Q1. by convention, do refurbished laptops get a "refurbished" battery?
Q2. does a refurbished thinkpad from Lenovo outlets get more parts "refurbished" than from, say, Micro Center, Best buy or Newegg ?
