Customer Reviews
Excellent workhorse ,
Apart from 1 or 2 small marks appears to be in pristine condition. Very quick and useable, seems quicker than my 16gb 8560!

Does the job brilliantly,
Needed a more powerful laptop for an application I currently train in and the offer of a quality make, i7 laptop was too good to pass up. Once setup (and many updates later) I installed Office and upgraded to Windows 10 Pro which went seamlessly. Cannot believe the quality of the Screen and many touches make this a really solid workhorse. Pros - powerful, fantastic screen, loads of ports, easily upgradable Cons - heavy, and the Display port needs an HDMI adapter cable. No backslash key on keyboard (Alt 092 does the trick)

HP Elitebook 8540W,
Delivered on time, good price, laptop looks good & runs the cad software, I bought it for,quickly. I had no problems setting it up apart from the fact that one of the keyboard keys would not go down fully. Very tiny screw had got lodged behind the key. Gently removed it - no further problems.

HP Laptop,
Laptop quickly and is a decent computer. In excellent condition and quite fast with no additional programs to slow it down. Worked straight from the box but no instructions how to set it up for me. A beginner would have found this more difficult. However easily got internet connected and sorted the programs I wanted. Backup disks made and laptop is working well.
