Getting a little concerned. Just got the newer version of this laptop (same ram, video ram w/128gb ssd and 1tb hdd) for one of the kids going off the college. Got the 3 year full coverage w/accidental damage and the school is an authorized HP repair shop so they will give him a loaner while they work on his. It’s been fine, till the day we arrived at school and noticed the screen flickering (but it stopped after rebooting). Sadly, it’s got windows 10. I’ve had good luck with HP’s but seeing these already showing up online REFURBISHED is starting to give me a bad feeling.
You can get a brand new one of these from HP.com with these specs plus a 4K display for this price. Just sayin’.
Do you have a link for that? I’d love to pass it along to my Computers Team.
