My Dell e6410 (Win7) is getting a litte old now and I'm thinking of buying a new Dell refurb.


I've maxed it out with 8GB of ram.




I'm not a gamer and our home internet is a very slow DSL. So faster internet usage (streaming) is not a factor.


My primary requirement is having a backlit (or backlit upgradable keyboard) and probably HDMI port and at least one USB 3 port. I'd also like to keep the price under $400 or so.


I'm not sure what's out there that's really much better than my current e6410.


I've been thinking of an e6530 but I'm not sure if it's that much of an upgrade. Are there pricier features that I'm not looking for that I should be?

Well...you don't have to buy a Dell...other OEMs make systems that are at leeast equal.


I think that a trip to Amazon and a look at the various systems available (both new and refurb) would help you define and refine your ideas.
