Well, that's less than half of today's market!
Definitely a steal if you got it in working condition ;)

Honestly, i was very lucky. I bought it from a company that was getting rid of them after using it for a project. They bought it brand new on June 2019 and i got it on October 2019. It even has extended warranty.

Yeah, some companies buy ThinkPads in bulk and after using them for whatever they need, they’ll sell them at a good price. Sometimes they give the computers to their employees and these guys sell them very cheap because they think they’re bad computers. (Not mac = bad)
