The\nparts and assemblies used in building Dell products are selected from new\nand equivalent-to-new parts and assemblies in accordance with industry\npractices. Spare parts may be new or reconditioned. The quoted Dell SKU\nnumbers for Dell-branded hardware products are of the quantity specified by\nDell and conform in all material respects with the Dell product\nspecifications current on the date such products were shipped."\n\n\n"equivalent-to-new parts and assemblies in accordance with industry\npractices"?\n\nHey Dude! You got an equivalent-to-new Dell computer! Hmmm, never saw that\ncommercial.\n\nIt's bad enough they send out refurb garbage on warranty replacements but\nare some of those parts making their way into "new" or accurately\n"equivalent to new" systems? That line seems to give them the go ahead. Is\nthat sort of like "pre-owned" aka USED?
