    Well, Just put my order in for a new inspiron 13 5000. Its the base model, but I am upgrading to 16gb ram and a 1tb SSD as soon as I test the unit and make sure it's working correctly. As soon as that happens, its under the knife for a heart transplant. 578.99 plus about 300 bucks for the upgrade. Much less than getting dell to do it for me. can't wait to try out this new notebook. Been using an older acer 17" and a 2007 MacBook.

    Suppose it's not new (2015) but I did recently pay $150 at a pawn shop for a Latitude E7250 and an additional $115 on eBay for a 1080P touch display assembly to replace the stock WXGA assembly. i5-5300U, 12gb RAM (4gb when I bought; I happened to have an 8gb chip laying around), 256gb SSD. For $265 combined, I feel like I got a good deal.

    one week with my new from dell outlet 3168 4gb 500hd, replaced the hd with sandisk plus 240gb ssd keeping at 4gb ram since the n3710 really will not do much better at 8gb. Its running really well for the 149 I spent. I have 4 to 6 chrome tabs and office opened and no problems with speed. I find it very usable and nice.

    Now seriously, why would you go on ebay to buy a new system?! It makes no sense, besides getting a good price (if that happens anyway).

    Because it was the best way for me to get a good system for a good price. It doesnt matter if someone understands or not, what matters is that the system works for me. This thing looks and works like it is new. Got the thing for around $550 when back when it was made it was likely a $2500 system straight from Dell.

    Just bought a used E5470

    -i5 6440HQ
    -4GB of RAM (Will be upgrading afterwards)
    -120Gb m.2 SSD (Will be upgrading, I'll try to get the SATA cable + caddy, else I'll have to pay extra for a m.2 SSD, quite expensive here)
    -FHD matte IPS screen
    -Backlit keyboard with trackpoint

    First thing I had to do was crack it open to loosen the hinges, they were too tight and they twisted the back side of the assembly when opening and closing the lid. After that, a very solid laptop :D
