If you have an E-Series Dell Latitude laptop the E-Port Dock is a nice addition to the home office. ~$40 after discount/taxes/shipping it comes with a 130W OEM power supply which is worth $40 on its own.

Looking for some advice on which one is the best buy for a laptop. My wife and I want to use it on a docking station at home, so we'd probably buy the E-Series one available on the website (meaning the recommended laptop would need to be compatible). As per the laptop itself, we really only need it for web surfing, email and Microsoft Office. No games or complex computer programs and we don't really download any movies or music to it either. We'd rather spend very little than add extra dollars for features and speeds we don't really need - that being said, we have no problem spending an extra $20-50 for a unit that is clearly superior than an alternative.

Can anyone out there recommend any of these laptops? Or maybe we are better off dropping $300-$400 on a new one on sale at BB or FS? TIA for your help!

What's the key difference between the T3500 & T5500 series? The processor and RAM, etc seem to overlap.

Maybe something like this one: http://dellrefurbished.ca/product/compu ... /si6609765

$243 after discount, with free shipping seems like more than decent. Windows 7 Pro 64 bit, 2nd generation i5. The resolution is not the greatest, but with a 14.1" screen, its probably workable.

I personally broke down and picked up one of the Quad Core Xeon T5500s this time... not doing my part for the environment here but these machines would make excellent ESXi home servers for those of us who enjoy overkill home networks.
Damn, was just about to grab another T5500 that was on a hot buy, but disappeared as soon as I tried to add it.

It might be free ground shipping if you could select same, however my only shipping option is express for $7.80 :cry: Annoyed me enough to spike the deal on the E6420 in my cart. Also the specs unclear on whether there was a USB 3 port in this build.
yadda, yadda, yadda

Question for John: Do the Hot Deal models have some cosmetic defects, or some other "deficiency"? Is that why they are special-priced even though the specs seem identical to other units?

Nevermind, snagged a T5500 for $309 all in, not a bad price at all. I was needing a new home server.

I don't recall seeing any quad core T3500, but other than that I think it is just the beefiness of the power supply, T5500 support for dual CPU sockets, possibly the included GPU?

The quad xeons seemed to have disappeared quite fast a while ago, you still managed to find one?

I'm typing on one right now, actually :) ...a Xeon W3520 Precision from an earlier sale. I think that's a quad core processor.
