This Dell Latitude D810 computer has lasted me several years and still works really well. I got this computer for class about 5 years ago. It was lasted me just fine for the past few years, got me through several law school exams and two bar exams. I am able to do basic audio recordings with this laptop ( the soundcard is pretty good), am able to watch videos, access the internet and do word processing. I did have to reinstall the OS once after my computer got a virus, but since then I haven't had any difficulties with the machine. Nowadays, computers have pretty short lifespans so I am pleseantly surprised by the durability of this machine. Dell does use refurbished parts to repair/replace defective machines, but I think this is pretty common throughout the industry so I guess that's just what you get. Overall, I would definitely recommend this machine, it has survived a lot and still works very well.
