Summary: Good enough computer for the class I am taking and the job searching I am doing could send back to get little things fixed but can't go with out a computer while they fix it. So guess I'm stuck with this one.
Pros: Good price. Big hard drive.
Cons: Keyboard is hard to type on. The speakers are blown an my computer. The power cord is intermittent so it goes back and forth from wall power to battery power.
Summary: I would probably not go through this again or recommend it.
Pros: Small, yet very good capacity, refurbished by HP, 18 month warranty and no real need for an extended warranty.
Cons: Even though HP refurbishes these, this did not include the power adapter cable and power cable as promised in the advertisement. HP had to be contacted to correct this. It took over 2 weeks and the cables were sent to us rather than the shipping address of record and we had to forward-ship them. ...
Summary: The laptop is OK. I do not like the ergonomics: 1) the spacing between the keys might be OK, but it has to be the same color with the keys. The contrast (black keys on silver background) hurts my eyes. After a while of typing the letters on the keys start to "jump" because of that contrast.
Summary: Received computer, nice timing but ONLY 2 of 4 usb ports work..tried everything even bought Driver software but did not solve anything. Tried emailing the email address that came in box and no reply, I would be more pissed but at least it is not windows 8.
Summary: I don't care about scratches or dents since that's going to happen anyway. I think a true refurbished machine shouldn't have any defects-- isn't that part of the process? Even with that considered, it's a bargain and I needed something powerful and portable-- I spend hours comparing at the end of...
Pros: You're getting a former top-of-the-line laptop for about the same price as a Chromebook. At under $300, it's definitely a gem-- compare the chip specs to what's out there in the same price range and it's a no brainer. I'm running SolidWorks with no issues.
Cons: 1.) This comes with a generic Win7 image (that also has Libre Office). You will have to go through the trouble of installing all necessary drivers, which will need to be downloaded on a separate machine since this can't use ethernet or wireless until you do. If I lost you at the word drivers, the...
Summary: It's ok... but be careful. The unit they sent me had a generic graphics driver that crippled functionality. Over e-mail I was directed to first one, then another, driver before finding one that worked.
Summary: This laptop rips CD's and DVD's as fast, or faster than any other device I have tried. And, I have tried a lot (Asus, LG, Lenovo, Sony, Toshiba, other HP's). Surprisingly, when you have enough Ram in it, this laptop transcodes media (iso to mp4 or mkv) as fast as a Intel i3-4130 or Xeon 1235 4th Gen...
Pros: - Fast 3rd Gen Intel CPU - Very Fast DVD R/W speeds. - Able to Utilize PC3-12800 16GB Ram (2X8GB) - Full Size Display Port - 2X USB 3.0 SS Ports - ESATA Port - Firewire Port - USB 2.0 Port - Media Card Reader/Slot - 54mm Smart Card Slot - Large Touchpad with Real Buttons - Mousing Stick with Real...
Cons: - Flimsy Keyboard Top! When you rest your hands on the front of the keyboard by the touchpad, the Cursor gets displaced and BAD things happen! - Spillproof Keyboard has bad key size/placement. Everyone who uses this laptop (They are standard issue at my workplace) complains about the keyboard. We...
Summary: For a business notebook that's used to being driven down from heavy use and passed down over layers of management, this unit is surprisingly resilient! But with today's applications, you might seek something beefier if you planning on running alot of programs.

Summary: I received the refurbished HP Elite Book within the specified delivery time scale. The hardware did have a few scars as one would expect for a used and refurbished equipment and was therefore essentially good value for money.
