Awesome

James P., Newegg
12 February 2015
  • Summary: Totally worth it. Was not that hard to do. Just research everything on the internet. Tony Mac was a great tutor for this. You save a good 800 bucks if you do an actual comparison to a macbook pro. Remember this is not the newest technology. It is a sandy bridge set up.
  • Pros: This is the perfect notebook to hackintosh. I had every osx working except for yosemite. I will eventually figure that one out. With an ssd this bad boy boots up in 19 seconds. If you are on a budget like me this is totally worth it. I bought a hard drive caddy and loaded windows 7 there. This wa...
  • Cons: It is refurbished. It came with a couple of scratches. My external dvd player is not compatible with the mac dvd player app. The original hp dvd drive was, but I replaced it with a hard drive. The battery will barely last 2 hours while working on it before you need to plug the power back in. I kn...

  • Summary: I bought this for my son and daughter. They love it and I was also able to purchase a additional warranty which I think is a wonderful that Amazon provides these services. Enjoy

Hackintosh

Fred, Amazon
17 April 2014
  • Summary: Added 4go of ram, changed the wifi card, installed Mountain Lion. A MacBook Pro for less than $300. If I were greedy I'd change the display for $100. Perfect computer for hackintosh.

Worst. Bloatware. Ever.

Herm71, Amazon
24 April 2013
  • Summary: I'm a computer programmer and I've owned several HP computers, mostly with success. Not this time, however. Purchased this unit in October 2012 and this POS has given me grief from the git-go. The Crapware that HP pre-installs CONSTANTLY CRASHES.

Great laptop, would buy another!

Pro Tech Ted, Amazon
29 March 2013
  • Summary: I absolutely love this laptop! The design is smooth, from the size to the feel to the materials all around. I especially like how the bottom opens first for the battery, then a second open reveals the entire insides. This allows you to upgrade any component, and to give it a nice deep clean.

ProBook- Best HP Laptop I've ever used

Metalsonic20, Amazon
10 December 2012
  • Summary: The HP ProBook 4530s is by far the best HP laptop I have ever used. At my school, they have/have had many HP Compaq laptops and desktops as their computers provided. My friend got an HP Pavilion (something, possibly dv6), and it can barely play a modern game without overheating and is so full of...

disappointed and frustrated

Gramma Ruth, Amazon
1 December 2012
  • Summary: I don't know if it is the HP Notebook or the Microsoft Office 2010. I only know that sometimes it won't accept my password and I can't get online. I don't know why. The computer arrived with no instruction book and I guess in this day and age I am expected to figure it out myself.

Better had I known what to expect for upgrades first

M. M, Amazon
21 October 2012
  • Summary: I upgraded to 8 gig total. Right away, I wasn't happy with the sound. So, for 40 bucks, problem was solved with a Sound Blaster Sound Card. For the non-computer-ites, it just plugs into a USB port--those squre inserts of which there are four here.

Decent Laptop, bad Power Supply

Carlos De Cunha "Carlos", Amazon
18 September 2012
  • Summary: I depend on honest and straight forward user reviews before purchasing anything so I try my best to do the same for other potential buyers. This HP Laptop is very nice. It has decent hardware specs and runs on Windows 7 Home Premium like it says in the product description.
