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.
Pros: Like new machine Samsung SSD Not too much bloatware Very well built Everything works!
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 e...
Cons: Not really any cons for me, but you might consider: -no optical drive if you need it. Could be added. -brushed metal lid is a fingerprint magnet. -128gb SSD might be limited storage for some. -Screen resolution acceptable, but unspectacular.
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 o...
Cons: Dell Business Bloatware = time wasted. I'm spoiled by no cruft since all my machines get a drive swap at the outset.
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.
Summary: I don't think I'll have a problem buying refurbished from Newegg now. Thanks again Newegg,
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 ...
Summary: I love my new computer! Got it as a christmas present and it's fast, the screen is a great size and perfect for movies in HD quality. Fast enough to play games and enough memory for tens of thousands of songs and hundreds of hours of videos - not even close to running out.
