New laptop!

Posted 05-21-2011 at 03:31 AM by lupusarcanus

Another HP finds itself at my house somehow . It's an HP EliteBook 8740w. Bought it slightly used from a nice guy on another forum for $1025. I love it so far.

Specs:

- Intel Core i5-560M
- ATI FirePro M7820
- 8 GiB RAM
- 500 GB 7200 RPM HDD

Been playing around with the reinstalled OEM Windows 7 Pro 64-bit and enjoying myself. Had quite a bit of trouble with PayPal but everything is pretty much done now.

    Congratulations!
    Those sell for around 2000 new over here, but with only 4 GB RAM.

    Thanks!
    And yeah, buying these machines new is very costly for some reason (although you can cut the cost down immensely buying from HP directly with a combination of a few different methods).
