Re: refurbished dell
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.
For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth
