I don't think anyone mentioned this thing having USB 3.0 ports. There are 2 on the right side of the laptop.
I did the research ahead of time on HP's website and saw that this model is 1.5GHz and comes with the 2 USB 3.0 ports. I haven't looked into yet but if this laptop has 2 USB 3.0 ports, I'm under the impression this thing has SATA III as well.
I noticed the default HP setup screen where you pick your language is set to Canada. I thought that was a little strange.
I then noticed some of the strange function / symbol keys on the keyboard. Wondering if this model was released in Canada only...
Regardless, it's a sweet laptop and has lots to offer in a lightweight machine. Highly recommended - especially for the low price (refurbished)!!
