4 out of 5 eggsALMOST all that was promised

Pros: The unit was packed well for shipping, and it appeared almost cosmetically perfect on removing it from box. If not for a small, almost imperceptible ding on top, the unit could pass for new.
Either I got lucky or Newegg is making an effort to cherry pick the best for resale. So far, it has preformed flawlessly.

Cons: It was represented on the website as having a webcam, which it does NOT. There are different versions of the 8540p which can differ somewhat in features. The version number I found on the unit is NU486av which I don't think Newegg provided in their info. Information on the web indicates that version does not have a webcam, though it was represented by Newegg as having one.

Other Thoughts: I've only owned the laptop for one day

4 out of 5 eggsHP Elitebook 8540P

Pros: Notebook was packed well. It looked new. I was impressed with teh overall appearance out of the box. Overall, I rate the condition of the exterior at 98%. Only a couple of small skid marks on the bottom of the chassis and the OS sticker gave away it was a refurbished unit.

It started up and went through the final setup screens as the OS, WIN 7 64 Professional, was a fresh install. I did have to install the device drivers for the quick launch buttons and the fingerprint reader. Both easily accessible from HP's website. The OS install was from May 2014. So, only a few months of Windows Updates were required.

No bloatware was installed on the system. So, I could get right to the work I wanted to do within minutes.

Cons: The battery that came with this unit was completely dead and would not hold a charge. I tried several times get it to work, but it refused. It's disappointing that a "refurbished" laptop's battery, an essential part of the unit, was clearly not "refurbished or checked in any way. I'd rather they shipped the unit without a battery and indicated one needed to be purchased on the product page.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this laptop and planned to upgrade it as soon as it arrived. Once I verified everything was working and the updates were installed, I cloned the drive to a 480GB SSD from Seagate using their software tool. I had very little trouble installing the SSD into the Laptop and it only required a small change of settings in the BIOS to have it up and running. This sped up an already speedy system.

This version comes with the I-7 620M, a dual core part, and the memory supported maxes at 8GB. The system board provides two slots for RAM, one under the keyboard and one under the chassis. This unit came with 4GB installed - 2GB in each slot - of Samsung branded 1333Mhz RAM. I switched these for two HP 641369-001 4GB 1600Mhz PC3-12800 sticks, for a total of 8GB of RAM.

I also switched the battery for a cheap aftermarket battery.

Everything booted fine the first time - no issues with the upgrades.
