Default refurbished dell

I stumbled across Dell's factory outlet page. Its basically a list of a bunch of refurb laptops they are selling. Really good prices. Are they going to be dependable at all? Would you trust a refurb from dell?

I don't see why not. They're refurbished, so they definitely work, and you know that they are going to be better than plain used ones. I don't know about Dell, but I bought my ThinkPad A21p used on eBay, and it is in great condition, so I doubt you'll have a problem with a refurbished Dell one.

Dell refurbs are generally in pristine condition. But I probably wouldn't get once since you can usually find better deals on brand new notebooks if you look hard enough.

Don't forget that if you talk to a Dell associate, you can negotiate the price down. Not sure if this applies to Dell Outlet, but it works when buying new Dells.
