Yes, about half of the Thinkpads I've owned have been off-lease refurbs. 
They've already had 3 years of use, so I typically got 3-4 more.

As to the desktop -- I might make the same decision as you IF I had 
reliable power. But with winter storms taking down trees which in turn 
take down power lines, and with wild fires causing power lines to either 
fail or be taken out of service, I can lose power for days at a time. I 
have a generator, but doesn't auto start or switch.
