Not Happy

ADMIRAL, Staples
12 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Have purchased many Hp products over years. This was the the first refurbished unit that I purchased. Looked great clean and shinny. Unit was slow for being I7. Had problems with unit, resetting when in a program. Would freeze. When shutting off it would start updating about 130 upgrades.and when starting up it would say recognizing upgrades and would last for a while. It did this every time when shut off.

2 years

Miguel, Amazon
21 June 2013
  • Summary: I have had this computer for about 2 years, using it primarily for school use. The computer has done its job for the most part. Windows Professional isn't exactly necessary for business students, as my primary uses for this computer are Chrome, Office, iTunes, and Torrenting. I think the main reason why I went with it was because it had the side number pad (I use excel frequently for accounting and finance). I purchased a 3-year warranty for it and I'm glad I did.

Burnt my hand

davez, Amazon
19 April 2013
  • Summary: HP laptops have been disappointing to me. I personally would not buy another HP product. But I have this laptop for work. If you are left-handed, you operate the mouse next to the fire-breathing cooling fan exhaust and your hand will be burnt. This laptop runs hot; the exhaust temperature exceeds 55C. So why does HP place the cooling on the left side not on the back? After a year of use, the first button on the touchpad stuck and is no longer useable.

3 years of abuse... Still going strong!

D. Byczynski, Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: Bought this laptop almost three years ago, and have never had a major issue with the thing. Everything still works except for the little keyboard illuminator which got jammed shut (which I never used anyway). I am most impressed with this machine's ability to survive spills. I spilled an entire beer right on the keyboard, and after quickly flipping it over and removing the battery and keyboard, I let it dry overnight.

Awful. Do not buy!

Wheels, Amazon
9 October 2012
  • Summary: This is the worst computer I've ever owned. The specs are impressive, but it was incredibly poorly designed. The placement of the fan makes it so that the computer overheats and shuts itself off regularly. If you're doing any kind of work that requires heavy processor usage, save early and save often, because this hunk of junk WILL crash on you. Not only that, it's heavy. I recommend that you use this PC as a paperweight, but not a computer.

Hp`s Elitebook 8540W

MRTR1, Amazon
7 June 2011
  • Summary: I have bought this machine after giving much consideration to competition and specs. The HP is not the latest in terms of processor since there are machines out there that have i7 second generation processors for about the same price or perhaps less. What attracted me this system is not the latest in terms of processor clock speed but overall build quality and configuration that is paired in the very nice and fast package?
