This looks like a bit of a deal for an 8th Generation quad code i5 with hyperthreading and a discrete graphics card.

There are also deals on the same model without the nvme/ discrete graphics card for £10/20 less but to me this seems the pick of the bunch.

Note the image shows an older model with thicker bezels.

This is refurbished but comes with one years waranty.

We have them in work, never known so many motherboard failures. Had mine replaced 4 times. After 15 years of buying Dell our company has had to switch to HP. This being a refurb and RTB warranty, I wouldn't touch it with barge pole.


You can find bad stories for many different companies out there and let’s face it, HP consumer laptops are dreadful, I use their Elitebooks but they’re expensive and not the norm. Dell’s are modular and easily fixed which I like but I’ve never had a critical failure. What Dell machines of yours are failing at work?

MCS are a good company and this is a stunning deal for that spec and dedicated graphics.

I got a Dell precision laptop from them last january, had an issue with battery which was very quickly sorted.Very helpful seller.
Bought a refurb Dell laptop from MCS 4 years ago and it's still working. After a year the PCB board died, which they collected and returned within 48 hours free of charge. Cannot fault them, excellent customer services. Good price too.

I've always bought Dell laptops and will probably continue to do so. But Dell now are not what they were 10 years ago.

Have a careful look at reviews for the exact machine you are intending to buy. Some of the Dell screens in the last few years have been shockingly bad.

There have also been a variety of problems with XPS motherboards which Dell were very slow to do anything about.

MCS have been around a long time. I think I bought a laptop from them a long, long time ago and I can't remember hearing any horror stories about them.

Ordered thanks. Couldn’t go any higher, budget wise so hope I haven’t bought a duffer!

Dell Latitudes at work. We have over 5000 employees, 85% have laptops.
Looks a good deal.
Bought this exact model from Dell Outlet a few weeks ago (and for £50 more!!). Very happy with my purchase.

I will say it's a bit of a nightmare to get into to add extra RAM and storage, as you have to pry away from the keyboard side. Also, screen brightness may not be satisfactory for those who work outside a lot. (Fine for home/stereotypical coffee shop use.)

Interesting that you say business laptops are failing. Dell used to do everything to ensure that their business customers got reliable kit.

Hardly ever use to get problems with them. Good solid solid and reliable laptops in the past but over the last 3 or 4 years they've rapidly gone down hill. Overheating seems to be the main issue and the motherboard gets fried.

Like I said we now have HP at work, and they have supposedly improved their reliabilty, but time will tell if that is true. I have an HP laptop at home and it's been pretty good so far but I've only had it for 8 months. I bought from HP direct, £200 off and an extra £30 discount code plus some cashback too. It was an offer to good to miss. I took a chance on the reliability side based on our company chosing that brand and what our top IT guy was saying about them and how they have improved. It certainly wasn't my first option though, as I wanted an ASUS as they are supposed to be the most reliable laptops.

I bought an 8 year old Dell business laptop for £40 around 18 months ago. My first laptop because I normally use a desktop and I'm not that keen on laptops. Given its age and condition it's been great. My kids bought me a brand new HP laptop for Christmas. Spec-wise it beats the Dell, in practice its naff. Slower, sluggish, faulty, compared to the Dell. And when I say slower, I mean it. Wouldn't touch a HP again.

An 8 year old Dell will be a good solid and realible laptop. The latitudes from that time were superb. Certainly not the same now though.
think this has expired, cannot add to basket now
I have this laptop and have had no issue in the past few months of owning it, even doing light gaming. The only gripe I have is the screen is pretty bad, like really bad and I'm not really that fussy.

What’s wrong with the screen?
Looking at the pictures on there site that looks like the older 5570 than the newer 5580, the big bezels and lack of a USB 3 display/power point give it away.

Dell often cheap out on their panels on their low-mid range. You can usually replace these super easily though for about £50 as long as it's not a unibody design. Takes all of a couple of minutes and the improvement is vast.

Can't confirm whether or not it's that easy for this model though.
Out of stock unfortunately

What’s wrong with the screen?


Possibly a TN display with washed out colours, limited viewing angles.
You should really look for an IPS display, if screen quality is important to you. ie, photo editing.

I bought a dell xps 13 9630 last year. 4 days after its warranty expired the motherboard died. I'm never touching another dell product again as their customer service is terrible.

I do not know anything about MCS but if they offer any sort of extended warranty it might be worth taking.
good deal
Nice thing about dell laptops is they all tend to have the same power supplies these days.

Seem to have a habit of using TN panels though.

ah yes that's another thing. Nightmare to upgrade RAM and it's been like that for a while now.
