Ive been looking for a laptop for light gaming as a second system. My questions is should i buy a Chuwi Hi10 Pro 2 in 1 Tablet or a Lenovo Thinkpad T420. They are both the same price (around 150€), the Atom laptop is new and the Thinkpad used. Mostly going to play Hearthstone and use Chrome.

You really should ask yourself: Do I want a laptop, or do I want a tablet? Comparing these 2 devices is a bit unfair to both. The ThinkPad T420 is a proper laptop (if a bit old) that is likely to give you decent specs in a traditional format, I'm guessing 14" and running Windows 7. It'll be significantly bulkier to handle, but part of that heft goes into a sturdier chassis.

The Chuwi Hi10 Pro certainly has a lot going for it, but while it offers all the attractions of a brand-new device, it is also clearly designed as a 'throw-away' gadget, i.e. any malfunction means buying a new one. T-series ThinkPads are designed for easy upgrade, expansion, and replacement.

And remember: The keyboard that comes with the Hi10 Pro is also only 10.8" - i.e. for emergency use only.

the atom may be new but it is still way worse then the I3 CPU that comes with that lenovo think pad. add to the fact that you don't even know who makes the cheap chineese tablet in the first place. this really should be a no brainer decision

The Thinkpad is a i5 2420M and the chinese tablet is a Chuwi Hi10 Pro
My Biggest concern with the Thinkpad is its size and weight
