Beware when buying from dellrefurbished.com. For example: They absolutely know what type of hard-drive is in the each unit when they post them since they have all gone through a refurbishing process. But refuse to state if the hard drive is solid state or not. You might even think that you can figure it out (like I did) by looking at the options which were available for that model. In my case, the drives over 256GB were HD but they offered SSD with 25GB or less. I bought one with 250GB drive. When it arrived it was a HD. When I went to Dell.com and entered the service code, is showed that the unit originally had a 500GB HD.
When I called dellrefurbished.com "customer support", I started to say "I just got my unit..." but before I could finish my sentence she says that we don't guarantee what is in them. I am like really? So this happens that frequently. Plus, you will pay to return it if you don't like it and 15% for restocking.
I thought this might be a good use of my Dell $50 gift card I got when I bought another Dell product. Just like a cash card only restricted to Dell.... right? WRONG!! After searching for 30 minutes I found a laptop and THEN found that you cannot use your Dell card on this Dell site. Maybe everybody else already knew this. Fool me once, shame on you... I won't be fooled again into thinking that a Dell card is 'sorta like' getting cash back.
If the size of the HD is a power of 2 (128GB, 256GB, 512GB), then it is 99% an SSD.
Earlier this month, I picked up a Latitude E7240 with i7, 8gb RAM, 512GB SSD, and 1080p 12.5" touchscreen for $340 after coupon. You can knock off another $75 with Amex if you signed up for their $75 off of $300 offer for Dell purchases
