It will be over $1,000 for new.
For $500, it’s refurbished. I was implying that.

What do you need a laptop for specifically? That might help guide suggestions. For example, a Chromebook might be enough and you can get those under $500.
c'mon get happy!

Nothing special. Just for business purposes but specs better, if possible, than Dell Inspiron 3000 for $479. Less than $479 would be better.

Sexyj and others,

How do you compare Dell-Latitude-7350-2-In-1 (link above) with

1. Dell Latitude E6440 14.1" Core i5(4200M)2.5GHz 8GB 256GB SSD Windows 10 Pro (Refurbished) for $488-5% from Refurb.io
2. REFURB DELL LATITUDE E7450 CORE I5/5300U 16RAM 256SSD 14" $420 from Bauer Systems. Will have to pay $35 extra for Windows 10 Pro

Which is a better deal among the three?
Thanks

If @johnnycash10 wants my BNIB. in box Asus J202n for $300, I'll take your X1
Following the advice of the Health Experts - I will consider voting for Dougie @ 12:01 AM, five days after the next provincial election.

I highly recommend this.... Excellent IPS screen
Just buy a SanDisk/lexar micro USB stick to upgrade storage or open it up to add more SSD


acer-aspire-5-slim-laptop-tinkerer-rig- ... d-2384215/

Wait for Amazon to get it back in stock
It goes in and out of stock randomly


I was looking for a desktop for simple office/Netflix/YouTube but I bought this laptop and hooked it up to my 22 in monitor and added Logitech mk325 mouse/keyboard
