I recently had the pleasure of purchasing a refurbished computer from QC Design, and I must commend Director Jordan for making the experience exceptionally smooth and satisfying. Jordan's professionalism and customer-centric approach were evident throughout the process, which made all the difference.I highly recommend QC Design to anyone in need of top-tier refurbished electronics. If you want a hassle-free purchase with personalized service, ask for Jordan. His commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction is truly exemplary!

Amazing service and knowledge. Was interested in a new SSD to give new life to an aging laptop. Joe was super responsive to all my emails, and gave very clear and easy to understand advice. The drive was dispatched the same day and took minutes to install with the instructions provided. If you need a pre-loved laptop or a way to extend the life of your current machine, don't bother going anywhere else! Honestly - amazing!

Lenovo ThinkPad x280 i5-8250u – Professionally refurbished

This Lenovo ThinkPad x280 has been professionally refurbished by our in-house tech team, each laptop comes with a fresh 100% legitimate install of Windows 11 ensuring your new laptop is not slowed down by bloat wear or unnecessary manufacturer apps.

Lenovo ThinkPad x280 Features

  • Portability perfected:
    When we completely redesigned the all-new ThinkPad X280, we took portability seriously. It weighs in at 1.16 kg—13% less than its predecessor. And at just 17.4 mm, it’s 15% thinner as well. Which means you’re getting the most compact 12.5” Ultrabook.
  • Primed for productivity:
    Despite its aggressively streamlined design, the ThinkPad X280 packs even more punch than previous models. From cutting-edge 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors to fast PCIe SSD storage, from RapidCharge to its innovative security options, the X280 gives you the resources to drive your business forward.
  • Takes a beating in stride:
    From spilled drinks to drops and knocks, modern laptops need to withstand life on the road. The Lenovo ThinkPad x280 has you covered. It’s tested against 12 MIL-SPEC requirements and passes more than 200 durability tests. Whether it’s a day at the office, or a day on the move, the X280 has you covered
  • Down with dongles:
    Connecting on the road—or even in one of your own conference rooms—can be a hassle. That’s why we’ve packed the X280 with a robust selection of connectors—including Thunderbolt, USB Type-C, HDMI, and more.
  • Prepare to be thunderstruck:
    The ThinkPad X280 includes Intel® Thunderbolt™ 3—the technology that brings lightning-fast Thunderbolt to USB-C at speeds up to 40 Gbps. Connect a cable from your USB-C port to a Thunderbolt 3-enabled device, and get four times the data and twice the video bandwidth of any other port type, while also supplying power.
  • For your eyes only:
    Data security is more important than ever. That’s why we designed the X280 with a range of security options. ThinkShutter means you don’t have to put a sticker on your laptop camera to ensure privacy; just close it up when you’re not using it. The match-on-chip touch fingerprint reader gives you secure login without the hassle of passwords. The optional IR Camera also brings the ease of facial login with Windows Hello.


This Lenovo ThinkPad x280 comes with an 8th Generation Intel Core i5-8250u Processor, 8GB Memory and 256GB SSD Storage and has a 12.5inch screen ensuring it is more than capable of handling your light entertainment, daily work load, casual computing and studying needs.
