Had an E6540 for work and loved it more than any other laptop I have had, probably 12 to 15 over my career. Bought this E6540 refurbished and am not disappointed. Service was great, shipped same day and exactly as expected, except for the label indicating it was refurbished, looked like a brand new computer. Did have some questions on whether it would come with Win 7 or 10 based on the order acknowledgement, but a quick call and it was clarified, came with Win 7 as desired. The company I left offered to sell me the E6540 I was using for $1500 (they claim to have paid $2500), got this unit for $773. It does have a slightly lower level processor and graphics card than the work computer, but frankly its just as fast for what I do (maybe faster), which includes CAD at times (work copter had 4 cores, this has two, but at a higher clock speed). Worked out of the box, no issues. 60 minutes to go through the usual Windows first use, add printer and I was ready to work. I did find the VGA & HDMI ports would not simultaneously support 2 external monitors as my former computer did, but did find one on the VGA port worked and a USB/VGA adapter got the third monitor running in about an hour, 30 minutes later I had all three monitors color calibrated with my x-rite photo-spectrometer. I did have a problem using the Dell Backup and Recovery software to move the restore information to a USB (the recovery data is not very useful if its on a hard drive that fails), but I will deal with that when I get caught up.
I have only had the machine 4-5 days, but am very happy with the machine so far and the service from Discount Electronics! I am even considering buying another to mothball to have in the future.
