    Also, can I replace the HDD with a Solid State Drive?

    • A. I can't answer your questions myself, as they're over my head, but you may be able to download the manual at HP.com. You might want to ask about the HDD at online computer tech support forums.

    • A. The 64BIT system can address 8gb of memory. the 32BIT system can only address 4gb of memory. Therefore, in order to USE the full 8gb of memory you must be running a 64bit Windows. I have two of these (one 64bit one 32 bit) and have replaced both hard drives with 250 GB SSD's

    I bought a refurbished HP 85 40 and I thought it might be a good deal at the time. After receiving it and spending some time putting my personal touches on it, I don't think I will buy a computer again at full price. This unit looks great, run better than my desktops and was 1\4 the cost. When I get some extra cash I'm buying another one.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I got this laptop for the processor and to be able to expand the memory. It came with a 32 bit system and not the 64 bit advertised. I call tech and they gave me a link for a 64 bit upgrade. Ever-things fine right, WRONG. The system they gave my was a bare bones system, no drivers at all. I couldn't even get to the internet. Call tech back they gave me another link to get the driver for the internet. If you have more then 1 computer you can work around this mess and get it to work, if not lots of luck. After making DVDs and getting a lot of help from my son ( a computer engineer ) I finely got it up and running. HP makes a very good computer, I have 3, 2 refurbished and they worked great right out of the box. This refurbisher ( JOY System ) should not have let the computer be ship as a 64 bit when it was a 32 bit.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I am a disabled vet and have a pretty good working knowledge of computers. Money is very tight for me, having never bought a referb product before so I very nervously thought that I would give it a try and so far am very pleased that I did. This system is a total beast to start off with, and the speed is unreal due to the i7 processor. The system is encased in aluminium or some sort metal, and is basically a business computer, so it is very rugged without looking like a metal brick and comes with a few bells and whistles. A major + for me is that it comes with Win7 Pro 64bit. A decent about of good ram (memory) and is super easy to set up, I think that I was up and running in about 3-5 mins. Bear in mind that this is a referb unit and that you might have to do a little footwork and get some drivers from HP.com, but that is easy to do. These systems come with a year support from Joy Systems, the referbisher, and have not had a need to used them. But as with most things these days, do some homework and all should be fine. Thanks Wal-Mart, really pleased.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    We needed a laptop with high capabilities to run WLAN Analysis software. This laptop has all the capabilities we needed plus more! When I ordered the laptop, it was supposed to take several days before delivery...it was here two days later. I can't beat that and the shipping was free. The laptop is a nice gray/silver on top and black on bottom. I haven't had much experience with refurbished equipment working the way it's supposed to, but this laptop has brought my faith back in refurbished items. lol The price was amazing, better than Costco's (no offense, Costco, you're great.) I would definitely buy this laptop again with no hesitation if I had a 'do-over'.

    This laptop is a business machine. It doesn't have quite all the bells & whistles of a computer intended for home use, but it has everything I need, and being meant for business it's a fast machine, well made, and has the professional version of Windows 7. It's really like new, and buying refurbished saved me a lot of money. My son set it up for wireless use, which is great. I do a lot of typing, so I have the laptop on a table and use a separate keyboard and mouse on a small table with height adjustment that I got at Walmart. I forgot to get an extended warranty for the laptop, but I've used it a year and a half without any problems.

    Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

    I ordered 3 of these laptops and right out of the box 1 had to be returned for a faulty keyboard & mouse buttons. The other 2 were fine, as far as the hardware goes. I ordered these based on the hardware and purchased the extended warranty to cover any issues as these are "re-furbished" units. I guess Walmart has a different definition of "re-furbished" than others. I expected the usual scratches and scuff marks, but they could have wiped the units down with a mild cleaner and actually verified that everything, hardware wise, was functional before shipping them out.
