Build and Design
The HP EliteBook 2540p is billed as an ultraportable business notebook, therefore corporations – and many consumers – expect a high quality of materials, excellent features and an innovative design. HP’s other EliteBook notebooks meet or exceed those expectations, but what about the smallest member of the EliteBook family?
The outer shell of the screen casing is metal, but the inner screen bezel is plastic. Unlike the 15-inch EliteBook 8540p we previously reviewed, the display lid flexes slightly when significant pressure is applied to the center of the lid. But it’s still much stronger than what we typically see on other high quality 12-inch business notebooks.
When HP says that the EliteBook 2540p was designed “to meet the military standards (MIL-STD 810F) for high/low temperatures and dust,” they mean the notebook is built to withstand years of use and abuse.
With all this rugged durability built into the design, you have to expect a trade-off, which in this case is weight. Some 12-inch business class notebooks tip the scale at 3 pounds or less. The EliteBook 2540p has a starting weight of 3.38 pounds with a 6-cell battery, but the added durability more than makes up for a minor weight increase.
Finally, in the same way that the gray and black exterior and smooth design suits a professional environment, so do the internals. The EliteBook 2540p uses three simple plastic covers on the bottom of the notebook (each held in place with Phillips head screws) so the hard drive, wireless cards and RAM are easily accessible for fast upgrades. There is a fourth tiny expansion slot cover on the bottom of the notebook, which is for the dedicated Bluetooth card. The rest of the notebook interior is protected by Torx screws that should deter employees from messing around inside their work-issued notebooks.

Restored second user laptops 2nd hand reconditioned rejuvenated all here in Frigiliana Malaga Southern Spain the best place to get a used laptop for a great price
We disassemble each one, checking individually for damaged components, battery function (Yes or No? If No we replace.) We check; screen quality, power supply, loose connections, hard drive and optical drives, all ports, webcam (if doesnt have one or broken we supply USB connected aftermarket) and of course the microphone (again if doesnt have one or broken we supply USB connected aftermarket).
Missing or defective components: RAM, graphic cards, capacitors, ICs, hard disks etc. are replaced and the machine undergoes a complete data wipe.
The laptop is then tested, cosmetic defects repaired, and a new OS is installed before being packaged for its new home.
We also load a suite of products; office libre, anti-malware, anti-virus, decompression software, disk drive clean utility, auto backup and multimedia software
That operating system software is critical. Sometimes people buy refurbished without the OS installed — and that is a no-no. Some sellers may try to install the original OS and pass it on to buyers, but that would not be a legal license.
After a refurbisher inspects, cleans, repairs and restores a used or returned laptop to factory settings, the unit is certified to be in good working order and placed up for sale.
