  • Summary: So far I have no issues with this product...it is an older model as I wanted to stay with Windows 7...and also Intel 7 processor. A little heavy, but that is what it is... All in all, good purchase...the 2 yr. drop and spill for only $49 was good price also...

Works great, after initial screen ussue

Scott E., Newegg
20 February 2015
  • Summary: When originally received, the screen had a flaw in it with a big discolored line running down the LCD screen. I contacted Joy Systems (the warantee holder for the laptop) and had very good service with sending the laptop back and having them replace the LCD with no issues.
  • Pros: Fast with a good screen (see comments below). Good customer service from Joy Systems. Even though it shows some wear from being refurbished, it works fine for my needs. SSD makes it really snappy in response, and upgrading the memory myself to 8 gig really helps with performance too. The Win7 pro...
  • Cons: Shows some wear, but that is to be expected with a refurbished unit, and does not impact use at all.

HP 8540P Review

David H., Newegg
15 December 2014
  • Summary: After doing a bazillion updates, and installing the required software for the position this machine is intended for, I am very pleases with its performance. Hoping for the same in reliability down the road..
  • Pros: A very capable workstation class laptop. Being a refurbished machine is not an issue. It just shows it has been broken in and has been used. The appearance is almost like new. Just a shadow of where prior lessee's asset tag were. The i7 combined with the sizable SSD make for a very capable machin...
  • Cons: Came with a dead battery. Rather than RMA for that, Prosured a replacement that charged right up.

  • Summary: I am happy with my computer however i am upset that the white letters on keyboard are wore off and hard to read, and that i would have to buy a whole new keyboard to fix it ?? For almost $500 i didn't expect this.

Good Value

John H. Russell, Amazon
16 October 2014
  • Summary: Good buy! Fast, efficient and good video. Keyboard is viable and more than adequate storage. Built like a tank, but the downside is it is a little heavy. Given that, the attributes far outweigh the single negative.

ALMOST all that was promised

Perry S., Newegg
12 September 2014
  • Summary: I've only owned the laptop for one day
  • Pros: The unit was packed well for shipping, and it appeared almost cosmetically perfect on removing it from box. If not for a small, almost imperceptible ding on top, the unit could pass for new. Either I got lucky or Newegg is making an effort to cherry pick the best for resale. So far, it has prefor...
  • Cons: It was represented on the website as having a webcam, which it does NOT. There are different versions of the 8540p which can differ somewhat in features. The version number I found on the unit is NU486av which I don't think Newegg provided in their info. Information on the web indicates that vers...

HP Elitebook 8540P

Lorin A., Newegg
7 September 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this laptop and planned to upgrade it as soon as it arrived. Once I verified everything was working and the updates were installed, I cloned the drive to a 480GB SSD from Seagate using their software tool.
  • Pros: Notebook was packed well. It looked new. I was impressed with teh overall appearance out of the box. Overall, I rate the condition of the exterior at 98%. Only a couple of small skid marks on the bottom of the chassis and the OS sticker gave away it was a refurbished unit. It started up and went ...
  • Cons: The battery that came with this unit was completely dead and would not hold a charge. I tried several times get it to work, but it refused. It's disappointing that a "refurbished" laptop's battery, an essential part of the unit, was clearly not "refurbished or checked in any way. I'd rather they ...
