Reputable "Used" Laptops ?

Hello

I'm looking for a "used" laptop for my daughter all the while trying to find a "reputable" place online. Since this will be used mainly for school purposes I'm leaning to a IBM/Lenova Thinkpad that was leased for business use. I myself got a great deal on Dell's Outlet site last year with a Vostro 1500. I'm leaning that way again as it falls in between Home & Business. But if I can find a place online with a good rep and some type of warranty then I'll consider it.

Well something around the $350 mark. But that's where that fine line comes in on if spending a little more is worth it based on what the use is. This won't be for the main pc as they already have a desktop. In today's flyer B.B has a Compaq for $449, about $150+ off.

HP has a 'used' section on their website, which includes excess/returns from bulk corporate orders. Great deals, but I don't know how cheap they get.
