Hello! I am headed to college next year and I am looking for a new laptop. I like Dell and their service so i started asking around and was directed to Dell Outlet. I found a Dell E6420 that I like it has a i5 2.4ghz 3M cache 4gb ram and a 500gb hot plug 7200 rpm hard drive. Which since I will not be doing any gameing, just a little photo editing and watching a movie here and there should be more than enough power/space. Also it does says "NO INTEL VPRO TECHNOLOGY ADV MGMT FEATURES" is that a big deal? It also has a Intel 6300 Wireless-N (2x2) Half Mini-Card which I assume is an upgraded antennae right? What I am concerned about is buying a year old laptop top, price is an issue and I think that for the quality -metal, water resistant keyboard- this is a good deal (i hope). Well it being a year really affect it, or be outdated fast? Thanks for your help in this stressful time =/!

This laptop ought to be a good fit for schoolwork/movies/light photo editing. The Intel vPro management feature is useful for businesses with a centralized IT department who need to administer computers which may be physically very far away.
