The latest in the ongoing saga of Amazon refurbishing laptops for the American public.
In November, Walmart announced it was buying a refurbished Dell laptop for $1.1 million and was replacing the old one with a new one that it said would be a “better product” and that it had the capacity to handle a “very large amount of work.”
The laptop, dubbed the “Dell Yoga,” was sold on Amazon for $3,900 before it went on sale for $2,995 on Friday.
It was supposed to be delivered in November, but Walmart had to cancel the delivery due to weather.
“It is our goal to deliver products with the utmost customer satisfaction, and we are committed to providing you with the best possible products when you shop with us,” the company said in a statement.
“We want to thank our customers for their patience and understanding over the last year, and look forward to continuing to offer you the best value when you choose to purchase a Dell Yoga laptop.
The refurbished version of the Dell Yoga will be available to Walmart shoppers for $9,995 and it will ship in November.
It’s unclear whether Amazon will use the Dell laptop’s capacity to replace the Dell laptops that it’s selling, or whether the refurbished Lenovo laptops will be replaced with a newer version of Dell’s Yoga line.
