Thanks, OP. Got one!!

Be aware that at least for the Inspiron 11, the pre discount prices are a fiction, considerably elevated from the normal 379 retail price, so even after the discount, it's not a great deal. 

Also be aware that returning a Dell is an ordeal. I've been trying to return mine for a month. I'm not exaggerating. You can't do it online, you HAVE to speak with a representative. Which means being on hold for ten minutes, then being transferred, then being on hold for God knows how long. The last time was thirty minutes, and I never did get an answer---my cordless phone lost its charge before the call connected. That's happened THREE times now. 

BTW, I'm trying to return one of the same Inspiron 15R-5537's they're offering here and I got it for $350 NEW.

25% off of $600+ for refurbished is an incredible rip-off.

$554.25 + Tax AC, FS, for Dell Inspiron 15R-5537 Touchscreen, 4th gen I7, 8 GB, 1T HDD, Bluetooth, 8x DVD, Win8, 6 cell batt, BUT only Intel HD graphics (no NVIDIA). Wish me luck! My last one suffered from the notorious Dell broken right hinge, which finally caused the whole shebang to short out 6 mos. after the warranty was expired. Fortunately my CC company extended the warranty by another year, and refunded the whole cost. This is the replacement!

That's why I stated in OP to keep checking back for good deals. Stock changes, you can find the same configs at many different prices at varying times of the day. When good configs with nice discount (plus add-on extra % discount) are dropped to the system, they can go pretty quick. Anything you see 'sitting around' on their site isn't usually a good deal, as you are seeing.

Gotta catch them at $250 not $600. Anything sitting around at high prices is stagnant inventory

I've never had to return to Dell, but I've returned to Dell Outlet no problems. Chat. Next day return box shows up.

  Gizmo, I'm confused. If that's your advice, then why did you post a link to a sale that only has three computers (I checked) that are under $600 and nothing under $450? Are there actual deals to be had, or did you just see "25% off" and decide to post it has a Hot Deal? Because I'm not seeing ANY hot deals on the links you provided. I'm seeing over-priced, unsold Dell merchandise being sold for considerably more than it was selling for a month ago. Care to provide a single link to a computer that has substantial savings? Because their inventory remains unchanged from when you posted. Or are you just gathering FW points for posting?

  It seems breathtakingly obvious to me that returning a computer to a brick and mortar store would be easier than trying to get through to someone on the phone, but thanks anyway. My point still stands. Remind me never to discuss apples and oranges with you.

  Does anyone have any idea if this is actually true, because from a business standpoint, it doesn't make a lot of sense. Dell wants to sell computers. It's not a game. If they're having a sale, they're going to list all the computers they have for sale. They're not going to add them in bits and spurts so that customers have to check back every ten minutes to find out what's on sale. They're going to be removing items as they sell out, not adding items to the sale. 

Am I completely wrong? I spent a considerable amount of time on several different websites over the last three months looking at deals, and once a sale was announced, I saw deals disappear, but I never saw them added, unless it was clearly spelled out to keep checking back for deals. That doesn't seem to be the case here. Is OP correct? Is this some game Dell is playing to get you to keep checking the site, or do they not care about that and just want to sell the computers they have as quickly as they can?

I may be mistaken, but it doesn't make a lot of sense.

You have certainly mistaken Dell and Dell Outlet.
Dell Outlet sells returned product, sometimes clearance old stock. They can't sell returned product as new, so rather than dumping them, they "inspect" them and re-sell them as refurbished on Dell Outlet for a lower price. This makes a lot of sense.
Whenever there is a new batch of return products after inspection, they add it to the stock and you see on the web.
There are many reasons people return a product, sometimes can be just they don't like it or change their mind. So some refurbished items are good as new, but some might have hidden issue that get passed the "inspection". So, you certainly should check it thoroughly soon after you receive it. So far, I have good experience, last time the XPS 13 I got looked just like new.

Actually, yes I did get the sale email and decide to post it. Many FWers have gotten great deals from the outlet. I'm sorry if there is not a deal for you at the moment, but their inventory fluctuates as returns come in, orders are cancelled, etc.

P.S. I do not receive points for posting, I post because it is the point of this forum

  Thanks for your reply, and I take your point. I've bought refurbished before. I'm just saying that the SAME computer that they're selling today refurbished, I got brand new last month for $200 less. I also wasn't implying these would be the last computers Dell put on sale.  I'm just doubtful that the link below is being updated with new deals throughout the day. 

Dell's outlet mdse. inventory DOES change during their sales, with additional items added as the sale goes along (for whatever reason!). It is indeed VERY odd. What is even more difficult for shoppers is that they group a number of laptops of a certain model type together, with a "price range" listed for the group. There could be several such groups for the same model number with the same processor, but with similar or differing price ranges. When you open a group, it lists individual laptops by price, with a summary of features for each, BUT THEY ALL HAVE THE SAME FEATURES. Only the price is different. Yikes! Makes it hard to select your bargain of choice. And if you snooze, it will be gone.

If someone knows of a better price for the "scratch & dent" model that I just bought (specs posted previously on this thread), I would REALLY like to know....

Does anyone have any experience with the XPS 14? I was wanting the XPS 13, since it's user ratings are better, but the available stock for the XPS 13 is minimal compared to the XPS 14.

I added some additional codes to OP but the systems / monitors have to be specifically-priced

.

Out of that list, and at this very moment only the Inspiron 11- 3137 is available for $265 is available. Original price must show $445. Once again, check back as stock changes throughout the day.
Example System Details Linkified
