Summary: This machine is outstanding! The seller was really helpful. Chatted with me on the phone to make sure it was exactly as listed. Every detail was accurate. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is that if a regular consumer bought this like it was coming from Walmart they would be disappointed. The machine came with a base Win7 Pro build. I'm a Software Engineer by trade and spent an afternoon downloading drivers to match this specific hardware..
Summary: hp has had issues with their build quality / quality control as of late. Just take a look at my experience with the HP Pavilion dv6-6140us Entertainment Notebook PC (Silver) . When my employer informed me that I was getting a new PC, I was hoping it would not be an hp. When the package arrived, and I saw the hp logo, my heart sunk. I got one of these hp EliteBooks. My model is the 8560p, with an i7 Quad Core (2.7GHz), 500GB HD, & 8GB of RAM.
Summary: Very good computer-recommended! Installation work flawlessly- HP set these things properly- driver update procedure. You might pay a little bit more, but you get the things- you enter and start to use good system. What is a bit disappointing is the graphic card or drivers available for this graphic card. It handle the resolution promised> 1600 x 900, but when you try to connect external, higher resolution IPS you are not able to get 1920 x 1200.
