Almost DOA


It's an i5, with 4 gig RAM, but I don't want to buy a battery for this!!!! I'm willing to drop money on a larger HD.

None Yet besides Computer arrived freshly restored

Battery or Power connector at MOBO inop. 0% available, plugged in, not charging

Only 6 Monhs


If you want a computer that works great for 6 months and the dire. Then buy this one. No wonder It only has a 90day warranty..

This laptop came all setup and worked great

After 6 months of use the computer suddenly made a click sound and went black. Stone cold dead

Nice for the price.


For college students buy laptop then download MS office from school bookstore with your id $15 and you are ready to go under $300

To start with extremely rugged construction, docking station compatible. Great for college students. Not the newest version processor but so much faster than the machine it replaced. No Bloatware that comes with new machines. Clean and ready to go....

None so far

Not so good of a deal


This isn't the worst refurbish I've ever seen. It's great as long as you never want to change anything about it. Spent more on making it work then it cost. If you don't have the knowledge to hack a bios, stay away.

Cheap. Cool keyboard light

Bios comes locked via the company that owned it before it was refurbished, Video ram is locked via HP @ 64MB's, Hard drive screw comes stripped

I bought this laptop to use during my deployment and had it all shipped to me for $270. It's been awesome for the price I don't even miss the money. My refurb does show wear, the keyboard is worn, and the case looks like it may have saved someones life...

Price ; Aluminum brushed features keep my wrist cool and not clammy ; Sturdy with Smart Card reader + lots of ports ; Original gangster keyboard illumination light that'll put the ladies in the mood. MMM mmmm ; Lid locks closed with a nice sturdy latch...

No webcam, but comes preinstalled with Skype. Wut da fuh? lol ; Tracking number didn't work oh well it got here ; Battery life. Replacement AC converter cheapy (China) but works

Big Mistake


Buy somewhere else and forget trying to get a good deal.

None that I can find buying this computer

Stopped working after first try. Shut off automatically and would not reboot. Windows stopped operating correctly and could not correct itself as the computer tried

Buy from some whom tests the product before they ship it out to a customer.

NO Pro's about buying from NEW EGG, they shiped my order to an outside refurbisher. Paid extra for fast shipping, this was a total waste of money. They shipped it regular ground

Computer booted up once correctly, then started shutting off on it's own. After sitting for 8 hrs with the screen message "fixing windows automatically" the computer would not run at all

HP 8440p (SJ747UP#ABA)


I sent the computer back in hope of getting a replacement. I suppose that the item billed out of stock during the shipping process and I was given a refund instead. I can't really fault newegg for this, but I wanted the computer, and there aren't...

Apparently a functional, quality refurb, with one exception detailed below

Battery was dead on arrival. Wouldn't hold a charge or be charged. I'm not exactly sure how such a simple error gets overlooked and it makes me suspicious of the refurbisher

Dont buy this product


Don't buy these refurbished ones......

Laptop still works 2 months after purchase

This refurbished piece is just garbage. Not only does the laptop has dinks and dirt to start with, the battery stopped charging within 1 month after we received it. It has been used very lightly during this month though. The screen flickers when...
