No, I wouldn't suggest someone go out and buy a J1800 (an N2840 maybe, but not a J1800, not when J1900 exists), but really, the J1900 would perform better than a similarly priced used off-lease business machine, and it'd be new and have the warranty that goes along with being new.
I disagree, it took me 5 minutes to find a good used machine that will kick the crap out of anything with an J1900 in it.

OK, I'll retract my comment, I guess I was a bit outdated on what was off lease for around $200. Ivy Bridge in a laptop is nothing to sneeze at. (Granted, ThinkPad batteries being as bad as they are mean that you'll probably be forced to use it as a desktop, but still.)

Older laptops definitely don't have the battery life of some of the newer offerings, but to say that a T430 would have to be used as a desktop is a bit of an exaggeration. With the the big battery, you can do light computing for 6-8 hours on battery.

When the battery's new, absolutely. However, in my experience, battery degradation is a big problem with ThinkPads, and always has been.

But, then, seeing as we're talking about J1x00, which is the desktop CPU, even if the battery's totally dead, it'd be fine.

It's sad how so many people ask their friend who knows computers about a computer after they bought it.

I have a desktop with Celeron j1800 and works for the purpose, I buy for my mom to use Netflix and Facebook, for that is good enough, consumes little energy and the temps for a fanless system is excelent (in my country 35º/40ºC all year).

Don't is a bad hardware, it does what he build for do, if you want fly don't buy a motorcicle...
