    Just the BIOS, and download windows from Microsoft, the download tool sorts the USB out. Windows should be mature enough to grab all the drivers once it's online, worse case you need WiFi drivers but I'm sure they are built into the standard ISO.

    When the laptop arrives, what would you say is the right 'checklist' to go through to make sure the laptop that arrives is in good working condition and doesn't warrant an immediate complaint?

    I can think of making sure the screen looks fine, coil whine, and audio issues, but I'm curious if there are other common issues that may not be totally obvious when first checking out the computer?

    Also, with a clean install, which drivers do you download? Wifi, BIOS (latest has problems?), and Dell Update? Or do you strongly recommend against using Dell Update?

    Also, is the Dell secure erase feature in the BIOS full proof such that the data can never be recovered when sending back the old laptop?
