1 out of 5 eggsBad hard drive

Pros: Just the right size

Cons: Hard drive failed at 7 mos. The laptop was always slow starting up and never did seem very peppy. Very disappointed with the performance and durability.

3 out of 5 eggsIncomplete Specs online

Pros: Small, solid, and for a refurb, its in amazing condition. Fast i7

Cons: Battery was expected for a refurb. System is a low voltage model (which was not in the newegg specs) of the HP 2540p and it has a 1.8" hard drive which was not in the specs that make it nearly impossible to replace, or service without additional equipment. Only 1 accessible memory slot (2gb native, 2 upgradeable). Only dual core i7.

Other Thoughts: Great Laptop. Not happy about the 1.8" hard drive and complete specs not being available before purchase.

4 out of 5 eggsHP 2540P Notebook

Pros: It is an i7, so it is kinda fast. It is the right size lap top. For the price it is a good buy but I would have rather bought a 2014, i3 with USB3 and HDMI. oh well it works alright.

Cons: It is an i7, but an older i7. They don't tell you it is a 2009 model with no HDMI or USB3. The monitor is the 2009 technology monitor.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat price...has one (big) issue

Pros: - Small
- Great price
- Arrived earlier than anticipated

Cons: - Battery doesn't charge
- (might) have a Windows setup problem

Other Thoughts: I'll try to update this later down the road, but heres how it is so far: the unit doesn't charge when plugged in. First thing I did was unplug the battery from the unit, and clip it back in. Nothing. Next I'm going to see if its a software issue. I'll reinstall W7 before I do anything crazy. After that, I guess I'll buy a new battery.

For the price - and it being a refurb - its still a good deal, even if the battery doesn't charge. Plus I only need this for a little bit. I doubt you'll find anything with an i7 in this price range, but like with any refurbished product, buy it understanding you may have to do your own repairs upon arrival.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Exactly what I was looking for... Great condition, Perfect size, Win 7 Pro, Wi-fi (wasn't in specs - so I was really happy to find it had it) & DVDRW. Thought I would miss my backlit keyboard - but the LED keyboard light works great. BEST is the price - what a deal!! =)

Cons: None yet...

Other Thoughts: Thank you! =)

5 out of 5 eggsVery good quality, some features not listed

Pros: This came with the following, which weren't listed, but which I guessed would be included: 3 USB ports and wi-fi. Also includes a 1-year warranty, which other identical systems don't. Overall, apart from one scratch, this computer appears new. Just got it, so can't comment on battery life. Very clean install- just windows 7 pro.

Cons: none yet

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a deal!

Pros: Incredibly low price
Like a more attractive Thinkpad
More features than you'll know what to do with

Cons: Heavy (for an ultraportable laptop)
Fingerprint scanner software not included & hard to find

Other Thoughts: I can't believe Newegg is selling this $1600+ laptop for less than a quarter of the price! Chassis had a few scratches and battery life was a bit reduced, but that just shows that this machine was well loved. I was looking for a cheap ultraportable laptop to replace my old 10.1" Asus EEE pc and found a gold mine. i7! SSD! Fingerprint scanner! Little LED nightlight for your keyboard! Even a DVD drive! Newegg was even nice enough to put stickers on the keys so the text isn't worn away. If you respect the awesome power that is the Thinkpad and also respect your wallet, make this your new work-on-the-go machine.
