Great laptop with everything I was looking for!

JC, Newegg
26 June 2014
  • Pros: I am really happy with this purchase the laptop had everything as advertised plus a 500 gig hard drive when a 320 gig hard drive was advertised. Everything worked great, battery 100% charged, and laptop condition was great. I recommend buying from US Micro Corp.

Great corporate laptop

Eminent Typist, Amazon
3 March 2014
  • Summary: This is a great warhorse for a corporate/business laptop fleet (my use case), or if you are a home user looking for something with a solid body at the expense of sleek looks, then here you go.

Great deal, thanks

N/A, Newegg

  • Summary: I could find no evidence my laptop was ever used by anyone. I have now tested everything possible and the only glitch is the back USB port will not read a particular foot pedal that I use for work, but the pedal does work on all the other ports, and anything else I plug into this port works fine. Dell is known for glitchy USB management (KVM switches especially), so I am not knocking an egg for this. For the $340 I paid, this was a phenomenal deal.
  • Pros: Like new machine
  • Cons: None but see below

Great Value

Keith L., Newegg
11 July 2013
  • Summary: I bought this machine to run Linux exclusively, and it seems well suited to the task. Kind of a poor man's Thinkpad. It is on Ubuntu's compatible hardware list and everything, including the Broadcom wireless, worked out of the box.
  • Pros: Great value for the money. Core i3 + SSD makes for a very snappy system for basic computing tasks. Keyboard is very solid and comfortable, and backlit. I like the Thinkpad style pointer stick too. Styling is professional looking. Good compatibility with Linux. Currently running Ubuntu 13.04 and everything just works. Quiet--fan noise is minimal. Decent battery life (approx. 5 hrs on Linux).
  • Cons: Not really any cons for me, but you might consider:

Screaming deal

Brian in CA, Newegg
2 July 2013
  • Summary: <REDACTED> smokes, what a good deal! I wouldn't have bought it new from Dell for $999 or whatever, but I'm pleased to be able to buy it now for $370.
  • Pros: Bought this for a field tech to use. Came WITH an SSD, which I've been adding to all desktops & notebooks since 8/12. Windows 7 Pro, perfectly adequate RAM and power from the i3. No DVD drive, which combined with as-new appearance makes me think this is unconfigured back-stock that Dell cleared out on a fire sale.
  • Cons: Dell Business Bloatware = time wasted. I'm spoiled by no cruft since all my machines get a drive swap at the outset.

Nice Machine

N/A, Newegg
26 June 2013
  • Summary: I should have purchased it sooner.
  • Pros: I was looking for a relatively light weight laptop with a matte display and a SSD hard drive. The back lit keyboard was a bonus. As stated in the other reviews, the machine looks like it is brand new.
  • Cons: None - a great machine for the money.

Looks like new.

Mangus, Newegg
7 June 2013
  • Summary: I don't think I'll have a problem buying refurbished from Newegg now.
  • Pros: Looks like a brand new laptop, and works perfectly. I'm glad I bought this one. I had been looking for a laptop for a while, but just couldn't figure out what to get that didn't have win8 on it. I was leery of buying a refurb, but this laptop is great. The only way I could have done better would b buying a new laptop. Thanks Newegg.
  • Cons: You're joking right? There are no cons.
