newegg offers the refurbished 7.2-lb. Dell Inspiron 17R Intel Ivy Bridge Core i7 2.1GHz 17.3" LED-Backlit Laptop
, model no. 17R-5720, for $614.99
for shipping. That's the second-best price we've seen for any Dell Inspiron 17R laptop with this CPU; we saw this model for $28 less four weeks ago. (It's a current price low for a refurb by $59.) It features a Core i7-3612QM 2.1GHz Ivy Bridge quad-core processor, 17.3" 1600x900 LED-backlit LCD, 8GB RAM, 1TB hard drive, DVD burner, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth, webcam, HDMI port, 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium. Deal ends April 1.
A 90-day warranty applies, although it's unclear who backs it. Also, newegg incorrectly notes that the CPU runs at 2.3GHz; it runs at 2.1GHz, per Intel.
