AST rides to the rescue

Adam S., Newegg
10 January 2016
  • Summary: When you receive it, get a full charge into the battery and then immediately go into BIOS and run a full system check. If the diagnostics are happy, you're good to go.
  • Pros: Initial review was not positive - between the battery and HDD failing the diagnostics and Norton complaining about a Trojan, I was far from happy. One call to AST fixed everything - new HDD and battery arrived via UPS. Aside from the time wasted setting up the system initially, all is good now.
  • Cons: Bumpy ride at first - no webcam. Description isn't 100% accurate - the 8540w we received had 6GB of mis-matched SODIMMs that needed to be replaced, monitor is actually 1920x1080 rather than the 1600x900 as listed. Incorrect synaptics driver installed on replacement HDD that turned off the middle ...

Nice laptop

3 January 2016
  • Summary: Love it i7 upgradeable GPU sturdy build light. If people consider a 6.5 pound laptop heavy,that's sad. Anything under 7 light to me, even if your 60 lol. Put it in a back pack, carry case with shoulder scrap.

Good for the price

JACOB H., Newegg
21 December 2015
  • Summary: * Minor scratches on the product, however, that is to be expected with a refurbished PC.
  • Pros: * Nice laptop for the price.
  • Cons: * Some annoying bloatware is preinstalled onto the PC, however, a few hours and that can be rectified.

Amazon Customer, Amazon
10 June 2015
  • Summary: Worked in my 8540p to upgrade from the standard 1366 panel. 1920 is much better and I was a little afraid when it was the LG version of the panel. But it does work with the Elitebook I have and it was compatible. The item was in really good shape and well protected.

LAPTOP LCD SCREEN

Tung B. Ngo, Amazon
5 November 2011
  • Summary: This screen is 100 times better than what came with my HP EliteBook! It took about 45 minutes to install, there's no comparison between the clarity of the OEM and this one! Great product!
