Summary: I needed a good HP notebook and through E-bay i came across HP Elite book 2530p.It is a very powerful Machine both for personal and business use.I highly recommend to everyone who is need of a notebook.
Summary: I bought this Laptop because it is small and handy. It has high performance. It has a super fast DVD Writer! I however do not really like the squeezed keyboard, and the fact that the finger print drivers were not working. The Laptop also lacks a web cam which make it difficult to use to Skype! On overall, it is a great gadget. It competes favourably with other Laptops.
Very nice, but beware of not-so-standard hard drive

Summary: Size and construction is very good. This system uses a much harder to find hard drive. Luckily, a relatively inexpensive drive bay cradle allows the use of a common drive to be used in the optical drive slot. If you need the optical drive, I would stay clear of this laptop.
Summary: I bought this for my husband to do his everyday work at home. This was his choice and he went for 2nd hand one as this computers are normally very good and reliable. (compared withe the Samsung notebook he was already having was giving him a very difficult time) The laptop arrived as described with an original case, thanks. There were little scratch marks what you can expect from old computers like this. But it wasn't a problem at all. The battery life is also good.
HP Elitebook 2530p: Tough and reliable - perfect for me
22 March 2012
Summary: I travel a lot and have got through quite a few laptops in my time. My Dell fell to pieces under the strain of going into and out of bags at the airport, the hotel, the meeting etc. My Sony Vaio caught fire. Some might say that my schedule is tough on laptops, and they would probably be right. I bought the HP Elitebook because I read reviews like this that said it was well-made and durable. They were right.
Summary: If you want a lap top that is less cumbersome than a full size lap top to carry around, but big enough to type properly, with a nice clear screen, then this is the product for you! It has wireless, a finger print log-in (if you choose) and camera/microphone for skype. I had the same model with my last job for 6 years, and it gave me excellent service, which is why when I changed jobs, I opted to buy the same model, and I am extremely pleased with my choice.
