Excellent deal

James R., Newegg
14 November 2015
  • Summary: Once I get the darn Windows 7 registration key taken care of, I'll feel comfortable calling this one of the best purchases I've ever made.
  • Pros: Pretty much everything. Drawing on the screen works great, browsers are fast and responsive. Haven't used it for much intensive work, but just about everything seems great so far.
  • Cons: The sound card required a sound card driver update from the HP website before the headphone/headset jack would work, but the issue only took a few minutes to google a solution and fix. It keeps telling me that the product key included is for the wrong version of Windows 7, so I have a window that...

Excellent Laptop

arlen z., Newegg
6 November 2015
  • Pros: All devices work if it is not turned off in the cmos .
  • Cons: HD is a 4500 Rpm IDE HD that has special connectors. Only takes max 8 Gb of 1066 7-7-7-20 DDR3 SoDimm's of 2 - 4 Gb sticks. Battery is dead when you get it. Takes about 48 hrs to charge first time. The battery charges in the laptop as a trickle charger = long time to charge even though it has a r...

HP 2740p Laptop

arlen z., Newegg
6 November 2015
  • Pros: All devices work on this laptop with Win7 Pro OEM system. It is faster than my old Ten yr old ToughBook with a amd single core at 2.4 Speed.
  • Cons: It only takes Max of 8 Gb of 1066 DDR3 at a CAS of 7. HD is a 4500 Rpm 160 Gb drive with special connectors like the battery connectors. Unknown if you can get a SATA drive installed or a normal IDE Drive , it is a 1.8 Drive = few and far in between and costly. Takes along time to charge , like 4...

Its OK

Michael S., Newegg
11 September 2015
  • Summary: Its not a bad deal but I hate not to get what I think should have been included in a refurb. purchase, if it was a open box then I wouldn't complain. Maybe NEWEGG will read my review and send me a stylus, we will see. I will upgrade it to Windows 10 and see how it goes.
  • Pros: #1 awesome the Laptop comes with a docking station that is not mentioned but is in the pictures and adds a lot more ports and a DVD Drive and a display port (nice). The laptop seems to be OK and runs well, so far with no known problems at this time. It came with a 160 GB Hard Drive (MK1633GSG Tos...
  • Cons: The laptop has several blemishes, the keyboard face trim and the keyboard itself seems a bit bent up, not a huge deal but very noticeable. The biggest problem is NO Stylus was included, It should have mentioned that and NEWEGG doesn't have one to purchase that I can see and searching online they ...

HP Laptop EliteBook 2740P

Lane C., Newegg
12 August 2015
  • Summary: description seems to be wrong
  • Pros: Small, fast for a netbook style, Memory upgraded to 8G easily. Still need to call Redmond to activate the COA on the bottom of PC.
  • Cons: Still can't find the 3 USB-3 ports listed in the description. Every other USB-3 port I have needs drivers. The description on the HP site said no drivers needed for the expansion, and no USB-3 on the base unit. No yellow flags on the device manager either

Fine little computer, with reservations

Walmart
20 June 2015
  • Summary: To be clear, I didn't buy my refurbished HP EliteBook 2740p from Walmart but from a non-profit foundation. I'm happy with this little computer. Although it's a two-in-one, it's large and heavy for a tablet and small and light for a laptop.

Great Value!

PATRICK M., Newegg
18 March 2015
  • Summary: I think this unit is a great unit, however, be prepared to spend some time updating the drivers.
  • Pros: The tablet came as described in the ad. I felt that this unit was a great value for all of the potential that it has.
  • Cons: None of the drivers were installed. This became a lengthy process. The keyboard was also filled with human hairs. I am not sure where those came from.

  • Pros: Good condition for a refurb

Good Laptop once all Set-Up

Anonymous, Newegg
17 June 2014
  • Summary: Overall a decent laptop for the money. But will take maybe an hour for full set-up before proper use. Good for school, but this laptop will slowly become obsolete in my opinion within 2 years.
  • Pros: *Touchscreen *2.0mp webcam (most laptops these days include 1.3mp webcam) *Caps and Number Lock keys have light indicators to let you know when their on or off *Energy Star Certified *Turns into a tablet *Very fast! Intel i5 first gen and 4gb ram is good for photoshop, word, and watching movies o...
  • Cons: Worst part about this laptop was that out of the box the Wireless Internet, Touchscreen and even Windows 7 did not work properly. I had to connect to the internet through an Ethernet port (wired connection), then verify that Windows 7 was genuine, and then download the drivers from HP's official ...
