Re: Question about refurbished laptops
I've been buying refurbished Dell Latitudes (not Inspirons) from the
Business section of outlet.dell.com for years. I get the longest
service contract and replace the laptop when it expires, just in case,
but they last a lot longer than that. My understanding is that
refurbished Dells have to pass more rigorous tests than new ones.
My most recent purchase was an E5420 last March, $499 for 4GB RAM,
250GB HD, 8X DVD writer, plus $100 to extend the warranty to four
years. You can get a nice dock for $160.
I'm still using Windows 7, Windows 8 seems like it may be skippable,
another Vista. I use Win32 for compatibility.
