Newegg offers Grade A Refurbished Latitude E7240 Ultrabook with 12.5" 1080P IPS Touchscreen Display, Core i7-4600U 2.1GHz CPU, 4GB DDR3 1600MHz Ram, 256GB SSD, Dual Band 802.11ac WiFi, Windows 8.1 Pro 64 Bit @ $510 after $30 MIR. Shipping is free. This item also comes with 3 years Dell warranty.

Along with that, newegg offers XYZprinting Da Vinci PLA 3D Pen ($50) as free gift.

This model is available at ebay store at newegg @ $499.99, probably without the 3D pen.

Now this laptop may be old but it has a premium build quality, almost 10 hours of battery life, very birght display (near to 400 cd/m2). Also the processor Core i7-4600U is not a very slow processor, it is slightly more powerful that Core i5-6200U in most benchmarks but fails short in Integrated Graphics.

The CPU was released in 2013, and 4gb of ram is pretty small. $510 for a refurb doesn't seem that slick to me. The SSD is appealing, and the screen has nice specs despite its tiny size. A 3 year warranty might be appealing to some, but I would prefer to pay $100 less.

I have one of each: e7250, e7450, e5250, e5450, and e5550. All with i5's or i7's. The build quality is outstanding as well as the screen quality. To sweeten the experience, some of them even have GTX 840m's in them to allow some light gaming.

I'm saying this because the eXX40's don't differentiate much between the eXX50's.

Good machine. I have one and it has served me well. It's not the lightest or thinnest ultrabooks around but it's extremely upgradeable. The SSD and RAM (2 slot up to 16gb) are both easily accessible. The battery is also removable. The Latitude 7250 52WHr battery is the exact same size as the 44WHr 7240 battery. So if you want a little extra juice, you can buy that one instead.

FYI this comes with Windows 8.1 Pro, and I think upgrading to Windows 10 for free is over.

No, Microsoft is still letting you upgrade to Windows 10 for free. Google it and you will find the link.

So do you simply troll SD and negative comment on all the items in which you have no interest?

would the 4400 integrated graphics be able to play games like Minecraft and Subnautica?

both are pretty graphics intensive

Very solid laptop. Used to own one before switching to XPS 13 due to the lighter weight and smaller form factor. However, I think the built quality of the 7240 is still better than the already very well made XPS 13.

Yes, it is. latitude series laptops are not really built to be very light and thin, their first criteria is to be very rigid, long battery life, user comfort like keyboard response, display positions and ergonomics. Thin and light requirement take second place here.

^ This. FYi for anyone who can be bothered: just looked at this users posting history & in 18 months they have never posted a deal, and almost all their posts are no less useless than this one. A safe addition to the ignore list.

Dell must really be trying to get rid of these older Latitudes.

I just bought a 35% off e7440 - I7, 4GB Ram, 128 SSD for about $670 after tax. It was in brand new condition with the same 3 year warranty.

It's not a bad machine and took advantage of the Windows 10 upgrade. I got 16GB of crucial on a previous deal and had a spare SSD lying around that I was able to install (had to buy a $15 bracket off eBay).

Unfortunately, I really hate Windows 10 (almost worse than 8), and I could not get 7 to install - not sure if it was a UEFI issue.

I tried to return it; Dell offered me a $70 refund to keep it, which I accepted.

So $600 total. Not a bad little laptop for trips and using in bed.

The 14 inch screen on mine is about as small as I'd tolerate. This deal is a 12 inch, so hope you have good eyesight.

Also, the 12 inch 7240 does not have an extra bay for the hard drive like my 7440. I think it may be mSata only. But the ram should fit 16GB ram easily. Mine also runs Linux without too many issues so far, (Ubuntu 16 on the second hard drive).

The 7240 doesn't have an extra bay, but it does have an extra msata slot for the WWAN. so if you're not using an wwan card, you can actually have 2 msata drives which is nice.
