Exceptional PC Tablet!

Peyton, Amazon
19 February 2016
  • Summary: Hands down the best laptop I've ever owned. I was in the market for a tablet but didn't want to fork over hundreds of dollars. I found my 2740p PC Tablet online and paid about $150 total (computer, docking base, ultra slim battery, and a 4 gig ram upgrade. I cannot say enough good about this system.

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

N/A, 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

Great Value!

Avi8orKS, 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.

Good Deal

N/A, Newegg
17 February 2015
  • Summary: Mine was in very good condition.
  • Pros: Good condition for a refurb
  • Cons: As others noted, you have to verify windows and probably need a wired connection to do this at first.

Everythings Good, Package Questionable

JERRY J., Newegg
7 January 2015
  • Summary: I'm very pleased with this purchase. I saved more than a thousand off it's original MSRP, and though it is a few years old, it looks and works like brand new. The i5 with full voltage is as powerful as laptops with low voltage i7 chips, and seems to handle todays software well enough for me.
  • Pros: Arrived as described and on time. Works great out of the box. Used the provided refurb activation code, and windows was authenticated right away. Found my wifi without problems, started updates, and began to familiarize myself with my new laptop/tablet. Response on touchpad is good, handwriting r...
  • Cons: A tiny amount of edge fraying (for lack of a better word) to the outer material at the edge near the wifi antennae. Almost as if the material is extending beyond the edge, cleaned up with an exacto knife and looks brand new, but will keep an eye on it. Packaging was not what I expect for computer...
