Dell Outlet Question please

Looking for a laptop. Looks like some good prices on dell outlet.

Has anyone bought one from their scratch & dent section ? I tried phoning but they cant tell me anything.

Website says:
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.

Just wondering how bad these are ? I don't mind a couple but want something decent for daughter for christmas.

They all come with 1yr RTB warranty

they changed it, as dell outlet used to just be under one, now they have added the scratch and dent thing so i dont know, i got my daughters from there and it was perfect, although not so perfect now - lol

you can return these, if you phone up to return they offer you money off to keep it (think about 20% off)


also if you are thinking of going with the coloured lids, my daughters is 12 months old and faded badly

the returns is the same as buying from the normal dell i think, good luck in finding one, i trawled the site for weeks before one came up i wanted, although she did want a good spec one, got one for £550 that would have been over £700 and when i phoned to have a moan about something they knocked £50 off

think it said high gloss but can't be for certain as i can't see the order details just yet.

Bought and paid for now. Looked up prices while i was looking on the dell site and for the same laptop with the same specs is nearly £400 so good deal me thinks
