Good refurbisher. Decent laptop, but too noisy for an SSD system.

  • Summary: I got this to replace an older HP Folio 13 that I had and loved. It was pretty much the perfect little laptop.
  • Pros: HP Laptop Elitebook Folio 9470m i7 2.10 GHz 240 SSD, refurbished by Joy Systems.
  • Cons: 1. My single biggest disappointment with this laptop is the noise it makes. It emits an irritating high-pitched whine. It's not super loud, but it's a persistent, tinnitus-esque sound. The Folio 13 I replaced was far less grating.

  • Summary: Well, I'm going to try this again, and see if it gets better the second time!
  • Pros: Looks decent, does have a few scratches but overall not bad shape, and is light
  • Cons: Doesn't charge out of the box, won't turn on at all. We'll see if the replacement is better!

Solid laptop, No complaints.

  • Summary: If you're looking for a laptop in perfect condition then refurbished isn't for you however you'll pay a good bit more for something equivalent to this.
  • Pros: Just received my laptop today and everything on it runs smoothly as it should.
  • Cons: Few scratches here and there but that is to be expected with a refurbished laptop considering the sizable discount you are getting.

Not without risk ...

Zachary S., Newegg
31 March 2016
  • Summary: I'd buy another one right now if I had the spare cash ...
  • Pros: This laptop is awesome. I have purchased SEVERAL of them for family and friends and they are real workhorses. This is probably one of the best product lines HP has going. It even runs Mac OS if you want a cheap "hackintosh" laptop with decent specs. This price is really crazy low. I'm guessing th...
  • Cons: A new one and a good warranty are sometimes worth the price ... but you would have to judge for yourself if that is worth another $500+. You can buy laptop with an i5 brand new elsewhere on Newegg's site for upward of $2,000.

Worth The Purchase

Daniel C., Newegg
27 January 2016
  • Pros: I have worked with the 9470m and 9480m models in a enterprise environment for a few years now and have found that they have consistently outperformed the 820 and 840 models.
  • Cons: Without warranty you inherit some risk but if you work in IT you should know how to work on these machines as it is.

Decent laptop

N/A, Newegg
14 December 2015
  • Summary: This comes with two 4GB RAM sticks, not a single 8GB stick. I was planning on upgrading to 16GB but there are only two memory slots. I'd have to buy two new 8GB sticks.
  • Pros: For $460, this is a great deal for the specs listed. I'm able to run a single Kali Linux VM with no issues. Battery does drain out after 3-4 hours though which is a little inconvenient.
  • Cons: Audio jack is defective. The earbuds I use have static in one ear which is annoying. I have used them on different devices with no problem.

Nice

Doloris S., Newegg
14 December 2015
  • Pros: I like the size of the laptop. The keyboard lights up which I didn't expect.
  • Cons: The driver for the touchpad was not installed and not readily available. I had to make some calls to the company that actually refurbished the computer. They sent me a link that I was able to do what I had to do.

Poor quality, wouldn't recommend

N/A, Newegg
7 December 2015
  • Summary: Based on my experience I recommend not purchasing this product. Very disappointing experience - I have had several positive Newegg experiences, so I'm willing to give the company the benefit of the doubt on customer service, but at this point it's a very unsatisfying purchase.
  • Pros: Product looks lightly used - minor, light scuffs, about what I expect from a refurbished product. The OS is loaded, setup is easy.
  • Cons: Left mouse button doesn't work, product wobbles like table with a leg that's too short. Apparently this product hasn't undergone a meaningful quality assurance review - the wobbling alone should have been enough to keep it from being sold, but when you combine that with the fact that one of the m...
