Summary: Overall a great laptop for a really good price! Elitebooks are by far the best laptops I've owned. Very well built, nice hinge, screen, mic array, good touch pad and joystick, keyboard feels great, speakers are fair quality.
Pros: Price, Product Specs (Processor, Ram, HD), very quick to ship and was in great protective packaging.
Cons: Small dings in the aluminum casing (relevant because its a refurbished item), no recovery discs (can get them for free from HP so not really a con, just notable)
the replacement refurbished one works great, the first one was a sour rotten maggot infested lemon

Summary: I have this HP Elitebook 8570 model, purchased a new one in September 2013. I have spent the last 8 months going thru the repair and technical onsite matters. You need to know certain things; like that they will delay a lot and give false fake appointments, for purpose of seemingly providing...
Summary: I have completed all the set up required for a new computer, performed the updates and loaded my software applications. The computer performs very fast and included in the purchase was a docking station which is great to have. The major bonus is it is under warranty until 2016.
Summary: Not the fastest or the flashiest laptop out there, but one of the few (or perhaps ONLY) laptop still available with a native serial port. As an electronics technician, I have discovered that port emulators do not work with all applications.
Some really good ideas, great look, performance and the battery - touchpad is a fatal flaw

Summary: I'm a programmer, this is my third Elitebook, I owned and used extensively two prior generations of this series (8540 is the most recent). I worked long days on those computers, each one was my primary workhorse, and I shared this information in order to establish the context of my evaluation.
Excerpt: Viewing it on the specification of the i7 -processor its impressing that the dual-core CPU can clock 3.6 GHz. This computer processing power is at least as good as a quad-core if you do not multitaskar something tremendously.
Pros: Computer for average work
Cons: Heavy games cant be played at thier highest level
Excerpt: INFO I HP Elitebook 8570p har modern design blandats med precisionsteknik, vilket resulterat i en snygg produkt med platinafärgad yta. Med en startvikt på 2,61 kg (5,75 lb) och robust design tål den här bärbara datorn de tuffa tagen under affärsresor.
Pros: Bra design, lagom storlek, enkel att ta med
Cons: dyr, inte prisvärt innehåll, rekommenderas inte till PC spel
Excerpt: Kollar man på specifikationen på i7:an så imponerar den tvåkärniga CPUn som kan klocka hela 3.6 GHz. Den här datorn processorkraft är minst lika bra som en fyrkärnig om man inte multitaskar nåt oerhört.
Pros: Kraftfull arbetsdator för t ex fotoredigering .
