    Hi,

    Is there any way to see the history of an item on the Dell outlet?
    i.e. why it was returned to Dell, whether anything has been repaired etc
    Or will they tell you over the phone?

    The prices are very keen, so but surely there must be a catch...!

    Cheers,

    Zebs

    the dell outlet laptops etc are either canceled orders or refurbished items

    their is no catch as such but you take what spec they have you cant customise them to what you want.

    you still get the dell warranty for 1 year which you can upgrade if you want to

    they sell them cheaper so that they dont have to have a high stock holding

    Thanks for the info ducati.
    Have you used the outlet yourself?

    For anyone who's interested, I answered my own question with some googling.
    You can find out the info with the app on this page:

    not used the outlet

    but a few members of this forum have bought from the outlet

    i've bought from a reseller on ebay (ecomputers) and have got very good deals sometimes better than the dell outlet
