Dell laptop Latitude E6520 Excellent buy

  • Summary: I am very pleased with my purchase.
  • Pros: the laptop was so nicely preserved, hardly any scratches ... actually one had to look really close to notice that it was not new. It installed perfectly with latest Dell drivers and Windows operating system. The Windows 10 was automatically available and I upgraded without any issues. It runs qui...
  • Cons: It runs a little bit on the warm side. I hope that this is normal and not due to the unit being refurbished (time will tell). It is not a small or very light laptop. To some this may be a minus... bot not a big deal for me.

  • Summary: Mainly used for work. Got it refurbished. optical disk drive cover just fall off when I took it out the box. Also the content of the box were bare minimum. Just the laptop, charger and one single sheet of paper with instructions on how to activate windows. No manuals or driver disk.
  • Pros: * Solid construction (mostly. see other thoughts). Wouldn't put it the test by dropping it on the floor or anything but the frame has a nice heft to it. * Came with with windows 7 pro 64bit. I see that as a plus given that windows 10 is now the only option for new laptops. * 1920x1080 resolution,...
  • Cons: * slightly older model. * i5 struggles a bit with Google Chrome. I blame Chrome though. * only 4GB memory

Great for being refurbished.

  • Summary: -I actually saw another student at my school with the same laptop. -Yes I'd purchase this again. -The freakin' speck on the backlight.
  • Pros: -Good graphics, can run the SD client of World of Tanks at 80 fps. -WWAN card port in the back. -Overall pretty nice.
  • Cons: -Monitor wasn't secured in all the way, some of the plastic housing is bent outwards. -There's a black speck, most likely debris on the backlight. -I had to clean the keyboard and keys off because they were dirty. -It can't go into standby or hibernation because it hangs on the login screen. -SSD...

so far so good

  • Pros: Looks great. I have the exact same series PC issued by my company which is now four years old so can compare it to this "new" refurb, and the refurb looks new. Dell does a clever job with a plastic skin over the original metalized cover to hide any scratches and dings. Overall I'm impressed with ...
  • Cons: None encountered yet.

Amazing for price

  • Summary: Very happy with this purchase, would recommend this laptop to anyone. Haven't tested battery life, only because it's replacing my desktop pc (yes it's worthy enough for that as I don't do any gaming).
  • Pros: 1920 x 1080 resolution on a laptop, super fast because of the 128GB SSD and core i5 processor, 8GB of RAM! Also 15 in screen size is perfect! What more could you ask for in a notebook? This thing ended up being faster than my custom built desktop (which also has a core i5 and SSD) in terms of spe...
  • Cons: There will be some very minor scratched and scuff marks on the body of it (none on screen though). Mine were so minor that it wasn't even worth taking an egg off for. You also have to remember that it's refurbished.

Great Laptop

Paul J., Newegg
1 December 2015
  • Pros: Laptop came quick, like always from Newegg. Packaged well, no risk of it jostling around in the box during shipment. Overall laptop is in excellent condition, obvious signs of minor use on the exterior corners and cover, but nothing I would deem excessive and/or detracting from the overall appear...
  • Cons: No cons to speak of

Good Deal!!!

BEN S., Newegg
13 October 2015
  • Summary: Overall, I am happy with what I believe was a good deal.
  • Pros: Dell computer in perfect cosmetic and working condition. I have owned 3 others of this model (E6520), and have found them to be dependable. This one is off to a good start.
  • Cons: Minimal packaging (PC was in cardboard/plastic sleeve inside otherwise empty cardboard box. I was surprised it was not damaged when the box was damaged in transit. I would like to see at least air bags or some additional type of padding..

it's a off lease descent enough

The H., Newegg
23 September 2015
  • Summary: over all if your looking for something that is low cost to get you to windows 7 this fits the bill works fine not brand new but NEWEGG still gives you a warranty which is good
  • Pros: system was clean booted up fine typical off lease system few minor dings and dents but you can't expect it to be flawless over all I got this for older relative to bring them up to windows 7 so overall no issues
  • Cons: no real bad stuff just minor things drivers did not work that smooth after a web trip to dell downloaded everything I needed was smoother

Ambivalence

Andrew G., Newegg

  • Summary: My girlfriends Dell refurb came with a Dell OEM charger and was in a bit better condition. I also note that the product write-up clearly showed the DVD was read-only. All in all, at this point, I'm mildly disappointed. I might return it but I just don't know.
  • Pros: 1080P with 15" display. Appears fairly rugged. Tight hinges. Only one small nick on the inside case corner. Battery about 85% capability (could be worse)
  • Cons: Cheap non-oem charger. DVD player but no burner function. Battery about 85% capacity (could be better) Hard disk diagnostics shows 5+ years of wear. This really irks me. I wanted to upgrade to an SSD but the condition of this disk (one of the disk parameters is showing a warning) makes that upgra...
