I've had refurbished things like phones in the past, they are top quality usually. Basically brand new if its a 'certified refurb' don't let the term refurbished stop you getting what looks like a bargain. Just checked it is a certified refurb and you get a year warranty on it.

Google it, get it cheaper than this elsewhere
I am actually selling the G2 version used for little lower price with 6m hp international warranty left 256 ssd and full hd IpS screen and little interest ...Hence this older piece of kit ... laptop is brilliant but at this price I honestly would not touch it . Look at cex for other business laptops.
Careful on the screens on any hp elitebook Even G4s. They are TNs and if you spend lots of time in front of it as i do for work you should pass. IPS is in a different league with a lot better viewing angles and that is what you should aim for
I just looked up specks. It is very xpensive for what you get. The screen is poorest tn possible with hd res. Go on ebay and for sure you can have better around £200 . You could grab a g2 maybe :-)

Any good reccomendations??
I've just purchased a HP Elitebook 820 G1 12 inch 4th gen core i5, 4GB memory, 128gb ssd from ebay for 169.99. Also purchased a dell 5750 i5 8250u, 8gb, 1tb hard drive and it had the worst screen ever, the little HP.... well its screen is miles better (albeit im using ubuntu), lovely little screen and the awful faded dell supposedly FHD, move 1cm to the right and it just fades away so got sent back straight away! Nice thing with the Elitebook, one click and the underneath comes off for easy upgrade.

I think this deal is way overpriced for what it is though...was looking at Amazon warehouse and refurb deals and they are flogging such old stock for silly prices.

This is flawed judgement. As i said most of elitebooks come with TN even full hd ones. You are comparing a hp business with a consumer dell inspiron. Why don’t you compare same ranges to see what dell/lenovo offers?

800, 1000 series are the top range of HP offering. Build quality i can’t argue with that. The screens of HP unless you pay huge premium are utter rubish. Check reviews...

Across 2 years I have owned 1x 820 g2, 3 x 1040 g3( this is hp latest notebook business flagship with rrp> £1500 still have one) , 1x 840 g2 still own one. Not even the 1040 is coming with IPS Screen.
If you want IPS aka better screen you check serial before you buy at least on a used one.

I have had 2 top range ddells too and couple of lenovos carbon x1 and all of them came with very decent screens.

I am fussy about screens/ keyboard the actual whole mqchibe because of the work i do and if can afford i will get the best.

Would always buy a used business top range laptop against a new consumer laptop.
Warranty is way better. They usually last infinte, depending on abuse, better components, not that flashy, and very easy upgrade, rugged chassis...
and could go on forever.
Don’t ask why i don’t buy sMac books...

Ebay/ gumtree if you’re in london. Look for hp 840 g2 and you must find it.
Hi all, I've actually got an 840 g1, i5, 16gb ram, 256gb ssd for sale if anyone is interested. Looking at getting £300 net
(Not sure if you are allowed to do this, but it seems like a much better deal than the amazon one)
