It's a port on the back of the machine that allows it to dock with a Dell E-port Docking Station. [dell.com]

I have one of these machines with a 1080p touch screen and it's great. It's not as sleek and svelte as some other ultrabooks, but it's much more expandable. Both memory (2 slots) and ssd (mSATA) are removable and easily accessible. I have 16 gigs of RAM in mine.

The battery is also removable. I've upgraded mine to the 52Whr one used in the e7250. It's physically identical to the 44whr battery while giving you nearly 20% more juice.

I have heard that the lower resolution non-touch screen is not very good quality though. I've never seen it myself.

Yes, the quality of the screen is not that good and it is TN panel, so not so good Viewing angle. However, these laptops has far better build quality, longer battery life, security features and connectivity options than normal laptops and ultrabooks. This one still sells over $500 bucks for the new one.

For anyone interested, the official Dell Tech Specs here (.pdf) [dell.com]

Note that there are tons of variations and options -- the Newegg page doesn't list a lot of specifics, so I'm not sure about some of the details of the model up for sale: backlit KB or not, which battery, which WiFi card, etc.

Like many Latitude models Dell offered a large number of options because in general large companies would customize for their needs and then order large quantities of them in a specific configuration. I had a Latitude refurb from Dell a few years ago and it was very well-built and definitely a different class than the "Inspiron" we usually see on deals. Nothing wrong with Inspirons (I have a 17 refurb I use a lot and it's held up well) but I'd definitely pick a Latitude of similar specs if at a similar price. (this is of course a very different system being a 12.5" 3lb book vs my 7lb Inspiron 17).

I wonder what the "refurb" history is of these and how heavily they were used. Sometimes refurb means "sat on a shelf for a few years" but it can also mean "used daily in a factory environment and beat up a little (or a lot)."

How would this work with free Windows 10 upgrades? Would we have to have this in-hand by July 29 to do it?

while the warranty is not 3 years.

I got this from dell refurb for about $388
- i7
- 500gb SSD
- 8gb ram
- 1080p screen.

the condition is not A++, how some use but works fine.

even though it is only 12.5" screen 786p is horrible if you want to do any REAL work. I mean as real work not hipster work (which means email and media consumption). I got a Lenovo x240 previously and it's 768p upon order I though it will be ok because the screen is only 12.5" but when I really start using it its very limiting and results in alot of scrolling as compared to my 15" 1080p scren.
I use
- visio
- syncterm
- office
- remote access software (teamviewer, vnc, rdp)


I'm pretty happy with the unit
- touch scren seeems pretty good
- screen image is very good (at least the IPS 1080p screen I got) viewing angle is amazing
- easy to open up and expand. (ssd, wifi, battery, memory)
- battery is easily removable
- supposely military spec durable.
- tons of ports, mini DP, HDMI, 3x SUB.

check dell refurb you may find a higher spec one for better price.

UPDATE:
Just to add
- it seems to runs pretty hot as someone else mentioned but it is stable and doesn't crash or anything.
- it comes with another 9months of onsite total care warranty.

Have used this laptop at work for over 2 years. Its been good so far, but the ssd did die suddenly within 7 months. It also overheats very easily. Tempted to buy one for home use.

Awesome laptop, I've been using a very similar configuration for two years and absolutely no trouble (I have 8gb ram and it's a 4300u). Screen is kinda crappy from off angles but otherwise this is a fantastic deal on a light and fast laptop.
