I'm about to take a parallel programming class in Fall and they use CUDA.
I'm thinking about buying a refurbished W530 but I'm not sure if that GPU allows it.
I see refurbished ones go for $300ish on Ebay and I believe it's a good buy. Even though it's old, that machine can easily handle today's tasks right?

I pretty sure it has 192 CUDA cores. That should mean it supports it but someone more experienced can confirm this.
Probably should be Thinkpad16by10.

Yes it does! The k1000m has a minimum rating of 3.0 which is works for most environments like Tensorflow with GPU support. I would recommend using Cuda on Ubuntu 16.04 with an SSD and a min of 8GB Ram.
If you have or get Ubuntu make sure you use driver version 375!
