Buying from the Dell Outlet Store is difficult. The best deals seem to get posted around 4-6 a.m. Eastern Time, and they get snatched up quickly.
You can get an HP g6-2123-us 15.6" laptop for $330 AR at Staples, brand new, not scratch & dent, and no getting up at 4 a.m. to camp on the Dell web site. The HP has the same RAM (4 GB), but a 640 GB HDD, and the AMD "Trinity" A6-4400M APU/CPU, two USB 3.0 ports (and a USB 2.0 port), and HDMI video output:
The AMD A6-4400M has somewhat worse Passmark score than the Intel i3-2350M, but a better GPU. Both are 35W parts -- overall it's probably a toss-up between them for most people. But the USB 3.0 and HDMI give the HP laptop an edge, IMO.

You'll need to wait & hope they stock some more at that price, or look for another coupon/deal posted on the outlet site.

At the time I posted the deal they had some in stock, and the code worked. It was only valid for S&D Inspiron 15-N5050 priced at exactly $375.
Hopefully they restocked some and others were able to get this deal. It sounds like a few people scored the deal.

I received mine 4 or 5 days ago. I inspected it and could only find a few (barely visible) marks/lines on the glossy front cover. It does have a "refurbished" sticker on the bottom.
But $295 for a Inspiron with an Intel i3-2350M processor, 6GB memory, and a 500GB hard drive is a super deal.

|Kristine3982||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...|

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.

|Kristine3982||Anyone else's order get cancelled? Just checked to see why mine hasn't shipped yet (got the confirmation e-mail immediately after ordering) and it said it was cancelled.|

I can't seem to find one for the right price to get the code to work

|topdwg916||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.|
