Dell Latitude 12.5” Laptop (Manufacturer Refurbished)
This compact laptop prioritizes portability with a design that weighs just 3 pounds and is under an inch thick, making it easy to slip into a tote bag and carry to a coffee shop or onto an airplane. Its slim design doesn’t sacrifice processing power, though, thanks to a dual-core Intel Core i7 processor and fast 256GB solid-state drive that help apps load quickly and run smoothly.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with about 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality similar to what you’d see on an HDTV with 720p HD resolution. Such sharpness and clarity also make the text on your favorite news and social-media sites clear and easy to read.
Solid-State Drive: Speed and Reliability
The built-in solid-state drive (SSD) performs the same duties of a traditional hard-disk drive, but up to 100 times faster. Unlike hard-disk drives, SSDs don’t rely on moving parts to write, store, and retrieve data; instead, they use flash memory chips that can boot up your computer and launch apps in mere seconds. Without the moving parts, SSDs are also lighter, take up less space within your computer, and are less susceptible to damage and data loss from computer bumps.
Speedy Data Transfers with USB 3.0
A USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port transfers files to and from your computer at more than 10 times the speed of USB 2.0, which is especially helpful when you have a gigantic project on a flash drive, or you want to backup all of your files to an external hard drive. If your connected device uses USB 2.0, the port can still move bits and bytes with no sweat at 2.0 speeds, thanks to its backward compatibility.
Video Chat with Anyone, Anywhere
A built-in webcam can make it feel like people miles away are in the room with you, helping you connect more clearly than with a phone call or email. Collaborate with colleagues in other offices, listen as your niece or nephew rapturously explains their finger painting, or laugh every time your friend’s cat walks across their keyboard.

Michael Dell has always been a little bit ahead of the pack. At the age of 16, he was running a personal stamp auction and newspaper subscription service, earning more money than his high school Economics teacher. As a freshman at the University of Texas, he was building and selling computers while his classmates were busy dissecting the latest Air Supply record. By 27, Dell had earned a ranking on the Fortune 500, the youngest CEO to do so.
Dell’s drive for innovation became the core that powered Dell Inc. His belief that “technology is about enabling human potential” helped cement the company as the cornerstone of the PC revolution, especially once the advent of the Internet kickstarted the brand’s enthusiastic embrace of online sales and customer service. Today, Dell remains a reliable name in PC desktops, laptops, and accessories for work or home, especially with the company’s unique customizable features.
