Summary: A great laptop for the price, minus the shoddy keyboard that randomly selects whole chunks of text and deletes it as you type/squeekes like a dry hinge. I would have given 5 stars if the keyboard they paired to this refurb had been in good working order.
Summary: A DVD burner is pretty much standard equipment even on the lesser brands of notebooks....but for newegg to sell a business class DELL notebook (which is supposed to be for productivity) without a DVD burner is just STUPID..
Pros: At least I can sell it and get my money back
Cons: NO DVD BURNER!? seriously?...It's a business class notebook and you skimp on a DVD burner?
Summary: the only reasons I didn't give it 5 eggs is the lack of certain features,but it was a compromise I was willing to make at this price point and it's very upgradable.Cons-no web cam,no blue tooth and integrated graphics which aren't terrible but they're not discrete graphics..
Pros: Good laptop for the $200 I paid,I put my SSD in it and installed my O/S and it runs just fine...just ordered the 8GB RAM kit for it,so it should be a pretty nice laptop for my needs.
Cons: As with any Refurb,you have to have realistic expectations....I had to do several BIOS updates and D/L all the drivers from DELL...installing Linux is a little tricky if you're not familiar with the newer UEFI BIOS,but it's doable and it runs great duel booting with Windows 7/Linux Mint 17.2.
