This laptop is one that I just received. I ordered it because it was too good of a deal to pass up and it's in the rare color of Smoke Grey (the only color you can currently order from Dell without a delay is Crimson Red). This laptop has been refurbished by Dell, but it includes 1Yr Hardware Warranty, In-Home service (after remote diagnosis), and 24x7 Phone Support, just like any other Dell that you would purchase from them.
I opened the box to take the pictures that you see. I only installed World Of Warcraft to test the graphics and its amazing this laptop is in 100% working condition, and that you'll wonder why you didn't come across this beast sooner.
If you configure this laptop on dell.com, you will find that the total is $2,503.00 and you still wouldn't be able to get it in Smoke Grey!
