Summary: Be careful - Dell has a serious issue that causes keeys to reppeat with ddouble letters. This has been going on for more than a year without being fixed. Even new models are coming out with this problem. Look here for more info: http://en.community.dell.com/support-forums/laptop/f/3518/t/19593360
Summary: I purchased this computer (Latitude E6540) through Amazon's vendor "Computer Upgrade King." The order was fulfilled by Amazon. It was not advertised as being a refurbished model, but it had previously been returned to Dell according to their phone support (determined by the Service Tag).
Summary: I was about to add this laptop to my cart and check out until I decided to check the technical specs before purchase and I noticed that the laptop model stated in the product's title and the model specified in the technical specifications are completely different.

Summary: Every day I turn my E6540 on at work and then start to type an email or something. Half way through I realise the touchpad has spotted a thumb floating dangerously close and decides to accept that as a requirement to move the mouse across the screen.
