I just bought another laptop...so if anyone wants this Dell one when it comes...PM me. Same specs EXCEPT it comes with the 1703 network adapter. Still b/g/n but with V.4 bluetooth rather than V.3. I guess I lucked out.
I got one of these for my mom last week for $295 and it arrived in 4 days after buying...
Great laptop, a little large, but it does have a really nice 15.6" screen. Honestly, for a 700px screen, it is the nicest 700px screen I've ever seen. Great colors, serious brightness, and everything really does pop.
I swapped the HDD for a Samsung 830 also, and the thing flies. Only complaint for it would be a less than stellar trackpad, very plasticky keyboard/palmrest area that has some serious flex issues (i can push the G or H keys somewhat hard and the entire plastic will bend with it), and a bit more heat than I would expect. Great buy for $295 for those not willing to wait for BF.
EDIT: I bought the scratch and dent as well, only scratches are hairlines (purely superficial/cosmetic) on the glossy lid...it looks like Dell shipped a new keyboard, palmrest, and hinges with this PC. As far as the internals I'm not very sure if they are used/unused, however I can tell that the HDD that I took out looked brand new.
Thank you all for rubbing it in . I called to see why my order was cancelled, and why I wasn't informed that it was cancelled. They were not at all apologetic and said the only thing I could do was replace the order, since the machine I ordered is still in stock. Problem is its $389 now. A lot different from $295. Pretty mad about this one. Dell has always been pretty good about making things right in the past, and they made no effort to right the situation here. Was going to be a nice replacement for my mom's old netbook. She was excited and I had to break her heart...
