Review HP ProBook 6555b Notebook

 

Triple-Core. The upscale office class from HP is called ProBook.

Keyboard with great feedback; Touchpad for fast-paced work; Many connections including serial; eSATA & FireWire; 3G-Modul with GPS; Security functions like TPM; Matte display; Stable base unit; 7200 rpm HDD without vibration; Good sound quality

Comparably short runtimes; Small color space/contrasts; Loud optical driver

HP effectively eliminated vibrations from the 7.200 RPM harddrive.

Met and exceeded my expectations!

 

I will purchase another HP ProBook 6555B. I suggest if you want the large screen and plenty of ports, this is the notebook for you.

Did not arrive with a dead battery. I always expect that when buying used notebooks. (Exceeded my expectations). Physically looked clean and screen hinges were not worn out. (Met my expectations).

Ad stated it would have Windows 7 Pro. It was pre-loaded with Windows 7 Home Premium. The license key on the bottom for 7 Pro would not work with my OEM cd. Fortunately, I had a 7 Pro key that worked.

Not my first choice

 

Will try not to purchase items refurbished by the same company. Hope that Newegg will supply me with the information before I make the purchase.

Once I fixed the problems, the computer seems to function normally. Cosmetically, fair condition

Poorest refurbish job I have seen so far ; Windows installation was corrupt along with the restore partition information. Did factory restore twice, with the same results. Installed my own copy of Windows to correct the problem ; The unit also came...
