Just wanted to chime in here and write my experience:
Loved Dells since I work with them at work. The business latitudes are really great with business support top notch. Also hardware replacements are next day which is really neat.
I ordered it last Wednesday and it came in today so thats pretty fast shipping for ground.
I was afraid mine was going to be screwed up (specs wise) since there were some reports from people that weren't getting the advertised stuff like memory and hdd. I am pleased to report that mine came as advertised and verified it through the bios/and reading from device manager: Core i5 2520m, 1x4GB (388MB shared with video), 8x DVDRW burner, Samsung SSD 256GB, DOES have backlit keyboard (either go into the bios and enable it OR hit FN+Right Arrow key to activate, default is disabled), WiFi 802.11 b/g/n, gigabit lan, Windows 7 x64 PRO, Dell 375 bluetooth, webcam, touchpad+trackpad, TPM v1.2 (great feature for encryption).
The box did look new on the outside, with a label showing "Previously Ordered New", like the other poster noted. Can anyone elaborate what this means?
Upon opening, it did seem like it was packaged as if it was a warranty item (I run through alot of Dell packaging at work from new machines to warrantied returns so I know what packaging it looks like) but upon inspection, the laptop itself looked brand new, no scratches/fingerprints, etc so I guess I can't quarrel there. At least it comes with 3 year warranty anyways so if something does break, I know Dell business is really good at their support. Glad I bought this laptop!
Edit: Just noticed my laptop didn't come with a COA sticker, usually ALL laptops have this that are brand new. Does that mean Woot is illegally selling these machines unlicensed?
