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.

good for the money

 

I'm guessing that they where trade ins at one point and sat on a charging bay while being used most of the time. good for what it's used for. it was bought for the specs it showed on newegg, worked out the the box. good for everyday use. spiffy looking...

cost effective, shipped without a hitch, looks good, effective for what its used for.

Battery failed to take a charge, Bad Battery. Throttling noisy fan, but it keeps laptop stable and cool.

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...
