You'll see ship date, start/end of warranty, etc.
Quality vendors, like Dell, operate under Federal Trade laws and are required to label any equipment sold as refurbished.
From experience, I've found that: “Beauty is in the eye of the beer-holder”!!

i have the same question.................
i bought it from the local shop in Pakistan............................He claimed that my laptop is new......but now when i am using it....it's pretty bad in quality compared to dell laptops i have used before....how can i know if it is new or refurbished one?
where did you buy it from irtiza? I have the same issue. cant confirm whether it's brand new or refurbished. I got it from techno city Karachi. went on to dell's website to confirm but couldn't find the answer
I am not exactly sure you can tell from the Support page anymore. My Alienware M!!xR2 used to say refurbished when I looked it up on the support page, but now it does not say that. It looks like a regular computer on the website and I know it is refurbished. When I received it from the Dell Outlet it had a green refurbished sticker on the bottom of it and still has that for I never removed it.
