Time to learn all about the processor
Looks like a great laptop for the price. Newegg has it a bit cheaper. Or would that be elieter. http://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemnumber=9SIA2PF2SE9954&nm_mc=KNC-GoogleMKP-Mobile&cm_mmc=KNC-GoogleMKP-Mobile--pla--All+Laptops+%2f+Notebooks-_-9SIA2PF2SE9954&gclid=CjwKEAjwrbSoBRDok47Sv6Ci80wSJABFUszT4s-jpd6nrmgdqQ2tJd_lPWqiXSxFQXb-t75-ryaC4hoCshXw_wcB
That is an i5 version
I am looking to buy a laptop for my son, a junior in high school. He has always used a mac, as that is what they have at school, but I prefer not to buy him a mac because of the price. Can anyone comment as to whether you think this laptop would be a good choice? He doesn’t do a lot of gaming. Mostly writing papers and reading stuff online. I’m a little worried about buying here rather than in a store. I’m unsure if we’ll be able to get it set up and working properly ourselves. Is it pretty intuitive? Thanks for any assistance!
To me the only compelling features are Windows 7 Pro and the build quality as this is a business class machine. But this laptop is from 2011. For about the same price today you can get a 4th gen CPU, touchscreen and better battery life. You’ll also get a 1yr warranty.
Now if your son is accustomed to a mac then prepare for some frustration learning to navigate on an alternative OS.
W T F, no HDMI???
I’ve always had good luck with HP products, although I know other people have had their issues. Really, no product, or company, is perfect. I am seriously thinking about getting one of these because I’ve had my current HP laptop about 6 years. It’s still going strong, so I’m doing the “Do I really need it?” thing.
All that said, take your son to a computer store, or Best Buy, right away. Have him play with some Windows based PC’s. With Windows 7. If he is OK with Windows, go ahead and get him this one.
It he recoils in horror at the culture shock of Mac to Windows, bite the bullet and get him a Mac. Macbooks are, as much as I hate to admit it, superior in some ways. Like battery life. Like ease of use. However, I’ve been a Windows guy since the dawn of time (Windows 3.1), and personally see no real reason to switch.
I have purchased this twice from Woot. These are not Refurbs!!! They are VERY Used, then they reset the software, slap some cheap stickers on the scratched parts and move em’ out. I opened both up to install more RAM and could not believe the amount of dirt they had in them. Terrible recon. job. I returned the first one once I saw the amount of junk in the CD area. If you get one, inspect the power port in the back immediately and open it all up to look for trash, etc. They get dropped and the hinges get weak, so check that as well. I did keep the second one. Has one cheap “cover up” sticker a lot less “dust” inside, so for the price I have a pretty capable (very heavy) machine. I added max ram and I’m happy. But, the power cord was loose from the getgo, so make sure you inspect yours. The area around the power port will be cracked or distorted. Great deal IMO, but be picky upon arrival. ***EDIT: correction… I bought the i5 version, but the same warnings apply.
No it has a Display port, way to go HP!!! Proprietary equipment is way better than going with what everyone else uses .
That lower price is for an I5
Display port is much less proprietary than HDMI. It is also a much better monitor standard.
I would love one of these and I have been watching for a year or so to find one with HDMI and Webcam . . . still waiting. maybe the 2012 refurbs?
Come on, Woot! What’s with the avalanche of HPs? Can we get some decent gaming laptops again? I’m finally ready to snag one and now they’re nowhere to be found on your site.
I find it outrageously deceptive that WOOT would not state that this is a 2011 refurbed laptop!! Someone posted this is an I5 not I7…nice transparency, which is leading me farther away from WOOT!!!.
A batch of factory reconditioned computers such as this are often a mix of model numbers. They are brought up to the stated specs as a minimum.
As for the post about the i5, that was in response to someone else’s link to a similar model, not the model for sale here.
They are doing a fantastic job of driving me away. I thought this was at least a quad core, not dual core claiming to be an i7. I want to cancel and instead I’m told to make sure that I spend the next month waiting for the package to get here, return to sender, and maybe then I’ll get a refund. Maybe.
Come on woot, get it together. It hasn’t even shipped yet!
Most mobile processors these days are dual core processors, (even the i7’s), but will still have 4 threads due to Hyperthreading. An easy way to tell the difference is if it has a Q at the end of the processor model it is a quad core, if it’s missing the Q it is a dual core. So in this case the processor is a i7-2620M so it only has 2 cores. Where as the i7-2670QM is a mobile Quad core.
That said this processor is an old processor from way back from 2011.
