Summary: Outstanding laptop. This review is for a laptop with a free upgrade to the i7 quad. Unit was "off lease" and arrived quick and in almost new condition. VERY fast, and had HARD to find features on newer laptops with firewire with compatible chipset for audio recording with a Presonus StudioLive.
This laptop has been working flawlessly since I received it ...

Summary: This laptop has been working flawlessly since I received it. I was a little surprised because the first time I started it up and checked the specs on this laptop it was actually a M560 2.67GHz. The packaging was very professional and it arrived exactly when they predicted it would.
Summary: Ive worked with HP Elitebooks. Solid machines. Machine arrive in decent condition and working. A little exterior dent, but otherwise fine. The keyboard was in great condition (refurbished), the battery used. It comes with 2GB of RAM not 4. For the price an excellent value.
Summary: Excellent laptop; superb build quality. First generation Core i5 is o.k., but not much different than my 8530p with Core2 Duo. Sometimes runs a little warm when multi- tasking. Good support from HP and uses DDR3 RAM......but 8 Gig max. Good value for the price.
Summary: I love the mini light in the center of the laptop that give you more lighting at night and also the tiny ball in the middle of the keyboard, this laptop as things that no other laptop has anymore but maintain the strong features every laptop has such i-core5.
Summary: I was concerned about getting a refurb, but the signs of prior ownership are VERY slight, like a minor scratch in the upper right-hand corner of the screen that only shows up when the lighting is just so.
Pros: Looks great - very solid, masculine and professional. Love the little LED night light that provides subtle but effective lighting on the keyboard for use in the dark. Compared to my old XP laptop, this thing is blindingly fast.
Cons: Only con was that it was listed as a 32-bit version of Win 7 Pro, and it is in fact 64-bit as it's correctly listed now. I worked through one round of RMA and replacement and ended up with another 64-bit, so I had to install 32-bit over it and update all the drivers, which was a pain. But it's wo...
Summary: I used these at work and knew they were very reliable and fast. I was not disappointed without the extra security and group policy settings it was even faster. I liked it so much I bought another one.
