You can get a refurbished Dell laptop for $179 if you’re quick

Buying refurbished is great for your bank account and the environment. You get a computer that functions like it's fresh out of the box, and the landfill gets one less pile of non-biodegradable metal and plastic. Many people are hesitant to buy used electronics, but "used" really isn't the right word here. Refurbished laptops have been professionally returned to their factory fresh glory, and will work just as well as any new product out there. Dell has a whole site dedicated to their refurbished products.

Luckily, there are a lot of laptop deals to pick from here but be aware that they aren't going to last long. The sale has already been ongoing for a few days now, so we're at the tail end, meaning you have to act quickly to grab a good laptop at an even better price. Whether you want a basic budget laptop, or something a little bit fancier, we're sure the stock isn't going to last much longer.
