This is a blog looking at a refurbished Lenovo ThinkPad T470 Ultrabook running Linux. Refurbished PCs offer a great solution to your computing requirements.

The T470 was sold in a variety of configurations including a 6th or 7th generation Intel processor. Our machine has a dual-core Intel i5-6300U (2.40 GHz that can turbo boost to 3.00 GHz) with Intel HD Graphics 520. While we prefer quad-core processors, at least the 6300U has hyperthreading. There’s an Intel Pro 6000p Series 256GB NVMe (that’s PCI Express 3.0 x4) and 8GB of DDR4 RAM. There are two memory slots with one populated in our configuration. The machine can take a maximum of 32GB of RAM. For Linux, 8GB RAM is sufficient for a variety of use cases, but upgrading to 16GB is a cheap upgrade opportunity if you’re willing to open up the laptop.
