You might also check out deals on factory-refurbished Dells through Dell Outlet. There is a home and a business version of the website - the products are similar. You can find some really good discount codes online periodically for these sites, and can sign up for their email alerts. These are almost new laptops that typically were returned for a minor problem that was then corrected. I've bought 2, and they were excellent deals and very reliable. Stick with the Lattitudes, because they are much more durable than the cheaper Dells.
