Meh deal.

Got a Thinkpad T520 4242-4UU (i7-2620M / 2.70 GHz / 4GB DDR3 / 500GB SED HDD / 15" 1600x900 HD+ / HD 3000 + Quadro NVS4200M / 9-Cell Li-Ion battery / Bluetooth / Docking station) for $300 CAD at a local shop. Wouldn't pay more than $150 for a Dell Core 2 Duo, certified or not.

EDIT: Yellow-marked USB is in fact an "always-on USB 2.0" and not a USB 3.0 as I assumed.
Pegasus: Dual Intel Xeon E5-2650 / Intel S2600CP2J / Hynix 128GB 1600MHz DDR3 ECC / HGST Deskstar NAS 4TB x15 (60TB) / Crucial M500 240GB SSD

I believe it was a subsidiary of Powerland Computers. They posted a few ads on Kijiji and I went to pickup the laptop. From what I was told they get refurb stock from time to time and sell it via Kijiji. Quality in my case was pretty much mint.

Powerland Computers is in Winnipeg. Would they ship outside Manitoba?

That's because HD is 720P or higher, so technically they are not wrong.
I know, but how does a non-hd 1280x800 15" screen from 2003 have a higher pixel density than an "hd" screen from 2015?

it's like a friend tells you he got a new dog as a pet, then he brings out a cat. you tell him it's a cat, but after he tells everyone that it's not a cat over and over and over, I guess people start accepting that it's a dog to *him*, but it still doesn't make it true. it's just a falsehood propagated by repetition.

I'm currently using a E6420 for work and I can tell you that between the DELL and the Lenovo, I would go for the Lenovo.

The E6420 is like carrying around a brick with a crappy keyboard and lots of heat coming off the unit.
I'm using one for work too. One thing though, at least the Dell doesn't have the world's crappiest touchpad like the Lenovos.
The E6420 isn't too bad if you throw in a cheap SSD.

Processor (CPU) Intel® Core 2™ Duo

Wireless Intel 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi wireless
USB Port Yes
LOL @ IBM for posting these specs...

Price is not bad, but I sell these for $220 with wireless N, 8GB DDR3 and yes, USB ports :o ) And Core i5, of course.

The E6420 probably has the worse touchpad of any DELL I've used in the past 10 years (I've had a D600, D620/30, E6400, and now the E6420). I've found that the T410s that I got is miles ahead of the E6420 I have. The problem with the E6420's touchpad is that it doesn't respond well to gestures such as the scrolling where all of the previous ones were great.

Dell refurbished had better deal on these Latitude laptops. From what I learnt from dell refurbished, these units with optical drive usually do not come with dedicated video card. Most likely, there will be 2*2GB memory rather than a single 4GB ram on this unit.
