Should this be more or less the best price around le? I don't mind waiting for any IT show or what, because this will be a backup for work at home.

If the refurbished set is installed with Windows 10 liao. When I do a wipeout, the Windows 10 os automically be there or I have to do some installation work? I reading online says it's quite effortless click, reformat, wait, it will reboot back with the same Windows 10 but clean empty. Because I getting from those SLS shop, the seller claims he can install office 365 foc for me. But if I secure delete, the foc office 365 will be gone also right?

To reinstall Windows 10, you just need to download the Windows media creation tool and create a boot disk to perform a clean installation. If the laptop comes with an activated Windows 10 previously, then you do not have to bother about entering any keys.

For FOC Office 365, I suspect it is only a 1 month trial.

Not worth, Lenovo online deal are more worth it.
Not to mention CEE show models usually are pre-configured so
you can customized it.

Example ram maybe it came with 1 X 8 GB ram.

Do let us know your impression of the laptop when you get it.
I have the E585 & I can barely get more 3.5 hours out of it unplugged (2500U, 16GB ram + additional SATA SSD).
