Wow - I feel like I got a deal!

 

I'd been window shopping for a laptop upgrade for a long time when this came along.I had been hauling my i5 desktop around to handle some of the more computation intensive work I do and was well done of that.I needed laptop with a decent processor...

Still a Good Price

 

Have Bought several of these units at different prices all reasonable. Easy sell to clients, HP ProBook, sounds Professional. It Just Works.

Same as my original review, excellent low end productivity system, WINDOWS 7 Pro, cant beat it for the price. Clients love this system ; Upgrade to 8 Gigs $39.00 . Solid System, Functional

Great laptop with great design!

 

This is a very good example of a decent HP laptop in comparison with previous generations and models I have worked with that just were not as well designed. So far I like it!

One of the first things I noticed was that this machine came with recovery media for Windows 7 and 8 already in the box which was a pleasant and welcome surprise. The machine is well built, aesthetically pleasing, not too heavy for my lap, and works as...

There is only one con and that is the trackpad. The trackpad becomes barely responsive at best when the machine is under heavy load in some tasks, especially during startup. This is probably more related to hard drive speed and not Newegg's fault. Just...

Consumer review by:

outstanding laptop w/Win7

 

Overall I'm extremely happy with this one and would buy another one. The fact that it comes with Win7 installed is a big plus, since win8 is horrible and it's rare to find a new pc with win7 installed out of the box.

My old HP laptop is great, but too big and heavy. This one is exceptionally well designed, lightweight, fast and sturdy, and has a very sharp and clear display ; Got up and running instantly, everything works very well. Keyboard layout and...

touchpad works well, not as good as my prior HP laptop though

Great laptop for the money!

 

This is a wonderful laptop computer for the money. At under $500 in the laptop world you typically get what you pay for which is a low end throw-away machine. The typical cheap keyboard and poor fitting plastic are all to common but not with this...

HP 4540S

 

Drops Wi-Fi connection often.Almost always fails to register the second key typed, regardless of key.Not impressed at all with HP 4540S.I should have returned in the first 14 days for an exchange for Acer or Asus.
