5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Laptop

Pros: Really fast, pretty cheap, 1080p looks great, need a numeric keypad, looks professional and it's solid as a rock.

Cons: A little heavy, and a little old-school looking.

Other Thoughts: It has some touch-sensitive keys right below the display for Wi-Fi, Mute, Volume up/down, etc. Kind of neat and unexpected.

3 out of 5 eggsLaptop is great, but there were issues

Pros: Despite the issues (see below), it was still a good laptop for the price

Cons: When it arrived the laptop would not charge when connected to the included cord. I took a chance and bought a third party charging cable from a local computer shop. Luckily it was the cable that was the problem and not the computer. Still, not cool.

Second, the specs clearly say that this laptop comes with Win 7 Pro 64-bit, but it has 32-bit. Again, not cool. Being limited to 3GB of RAM is a real bummer.

4 out of 5 eggsCan not beat the price for....

Pros: - You can not beat the price for a 1st Gen I7
- Solid performance
- Great O/S 64Bit OS (pretty much bare which is what I wanted) No extra fluff. Which allows more flexibility to load the software you want not what HP determines is the best fit.
- Shipping was good. But what is interesting is that I purchased a Memory upgrade (8GB) with the laptop. The Laptop was shipped using the Egg Saver (4 - 7) which arrived one day a head of schedule. However, the memory was shipped using snail mail which arrived 3 days later. It would have been great if they both arrived at the same time.
- Condition of the laptop (Good) I did not find and noticeable scratches and dents.

Cons: - The quick launch buttons did not light up or work. I spent sometime on HP's website trouble shooting this issue. I loaded the latest driver and verified the connections under the keyboard. But they just did not work. (This is why I could not give this laptop 5 eggs) The quick launch buttons are not a big deal to me, but it would have been nice to have functional.

Other Thoughts: I am a Systems Engineer so I do PC/ Network support for a living. So it does what I need from a technical perspective.
I am also a Graduate Student so if you are looking for something that can handle research (jstor is your friend) and tons of papers the HP 8540P more than fits the bill.
-I went ahead and upgrade the memory to 8GB for a little more muscle on the processing side. New Egg has a great deal on G.Skill.
- Be prepared to spend some time on Windows Update patching and upgrading the OS. Also I spent a couple of hours on HP's website updating the drivers and flashing the ROM to the latest version.
- Not planning to Upgrade to Windows 8
