  • Pros: - Responsive customer service, refund processed within two weeks
  • Cons: - Laptop arrived pre loaded with malware which made it essentially in-operable. Was unable to remove the malware after several attempts.

  • Summary: General: a good decent price for a refurbished HP laptop.
  • Pros: Solid aluminium construction, sturdy, fast, great keyboard and touchpad,good sound, reliable.
  • Cons: Heavy, probably a illuminated keyboard is better than that small light on the side of the webcam, any screen color calibration result in screen problems , so most of the time you have to restore to the preview default setting, not very pleased with this issue.

Ok computer

MATTHEW S., Newegg
2 August 2015
  • 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.

Refurbished 14.1" HP Notebook

LAURETTA T., Newegg
23 July 2015
  • 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. ...

I do not like the ergonomics

YuliyaK "YuliyaK", Amazon
31 March 2015
  • 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.

Maybe good, Maybe Bad

Austin D., Newegg
21 December 2014
  • 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...

Look carefully at what you get

S. Tropht, Amazon
21 October 2014
  • 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.

HP Elitebook 8460p - Good with a Few Problems

Ronald T., Newegg
12 March 2014
  • 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...

Good unit, but need something beefier

kylejpatrick, Amazon
3 December 2012
  • 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.
