You should always put the price including Vat and delivery.
They currently start at £302 if you exclude the Scratch & Dent refurbs which start at £288.

Be careful in that some PCs on the Outlet are listed as Certified Refurbished but when you look on the Details it says ‘Grade 1 Scratch or Dent’.

I ordered a good spec 13z and when I checked the order confirmation it said Scratch & Dent so I cancelled it. :x

thanks above is useful

What's wrong with buying one of the 'Scratch or dent' systems? I bought an Inspiron laptop from the dell outlet a few years ago and all it has is two very light scratches on the case, they are barely noticeable.

I’ve also bought Scratch or Dent and they vary in quality. For a desktop system it wouldn’t bother me but for a laptop there is a risk.
Anyway it’s not about what you or I think about it as I am just passing on info so that people that don’t want to risk getting a S&D don’t fall into the trap that I outlined.

Just so you know my sister bought a scratch and dent from the outlet and there was no scratch on it. All outlet laptops are like brand new.

I've bought dozens and most are not scratched but some had minor blemishes. But the ones classified as Scratch & Dent are more likely to have issues.

I'm not questioning what you've said, I'm just interested as my reasoning whas that a cosmetic scratch is less of a risk than a system that's been refurbished, am I wrong?

The vast majority (~98%) of Dell’s Certified Refurbished systems are customer returns that were with the customer for less than a week. I say this because I’ve looked at the original shipping dates of 100s of these and it’s rare for them not to fall into this category. These systems are typically as new as you’d imagine and not the type of refurbished systems that are normally sold elsewhere which are in affect second hand and may have had 6 months or years of usage.

The Scratch & Dent ones I presume fall into one of these categories:
Customer returns that were noticeably physically marked.
Machines that were damaged in the manufacturing process.
Warranty repairs that couldn’t be fixed initially in good time.
Machines replaced under accidental insurance cover that were subsequently repaired.

So I don’t see an advantage to buying an S&D PCs as they are all refurbished in a sense and I think the S&D units are more likely to have a bad history although this is pure speculation on my part.
Of course they do have the advantage of often having significantly lower prices which makes them attractive and you may get a good one.

According to dell's webpage S and D does not affect performance and i have seen some review websites and all confirmed they are just like new. The comparison below is from the outlet webpage. Also where did you get your info about them S and D being 6 months to 1 year old and have you actually bought one to confirm this? Scratch and dent are just like Certified Refurbished System except that they have have 1 or 2 tiny unnoticeable scratch. My sister's has been going for almost a year now with no probs.


New inventory options available! Which type of product is right for you?

Previously Ordered New 1 :
Previously-ordered New systems include systems that were shipped out to a customer who opened the box, but decided to return the system without ever using it, although it may have been powered on. How do we know if a customer used the system? All new Dell systems have an End User Software Agreement (EUSA) screen that appears the first time the system is powered on by a customer. Once the EUSA is accepted, the screen never appears again. If this screen is still intact, we know the system has not been used. Previously Ordered New Electronics & Accessories also include products that were shipped out to a customer who decided to return the product without ever opening it. How do we know if a customer used the item? All Dell electronics and accessories are factory sealed with tamper-evident tape. If the tamper-evident tape is unaltered and intact, we know the product has not been used.

Certified Refurbished :
These systems are put through the production process again to ensure they meet all original factory specifications. We also retest each system to ensure excellent quality and workmanship standards. Certified Refurbished systems may have observable cosmetic imperfections, but they will not affect performance. Certified Refurbished Electronics & Accessories are visually inspected and, if necessary, retested to ensure these items function as well as new items.

Scratch & Dent :
Sometimes brand new or refurbished items have considerable cosmetic blemishes that do not impact performance. Whenever this happens, they are sold as Scratch & Dent items. This is a great option to save money while maintaining the reliability of Dell Outlet's rigorous rebuilding and retesting process
