Hey all,

I bought a laptop from Best Buy on open box clearance, laptop looks like it's in brand new condition.

It's a Dell Inspiron 15 5999

720p touch screen 15"6
6th gen i5 2.6 up to 2.8
6gb ram
1 TB 5400
Backlit keyboard
CD/DVD drive
1 usb 3.0, 2 usb 2.0
HDMI 1.4 out
Headphone/mic jack

I paid 340 for it at Best Buy, do you think this is a good bargain or is there something else out there. I have a week to return it.

Did you stack a movers coupon to get 5-10% off?

I dont know about your personal preference, but 720p on a 15.6 inch screen is unacceptable for me. I would be willing to pay more for the screen resolution alone.

no it was just open box and they were trying to move inventory. the screen isn't the best but I intend eventually to hook up a mouse/keyboard/monitor

The next step up for an HD screen with similar specs was upwards of 700-800

you want to remove the bloatware first then check to see if the battery which supposedly doesn't last long, is enough for you. The build quality also is lacking. But if you want to pay less you're gonna have to suffer on some parts of it.
