I can't see any reason why this cannot handle office tasks comfortably.
The 17.3 large screen is especially good for typing up docs, as a desktop replacement. 250nits is generally sufficient for indoor use. backlit KB is also a plus.

No, if you love her, buy her a laptop with SSD, not HDD. I can't believe HP still manufacturing laptop with HDD as only storage in 2022.

Not unless you're good at removing viruses. Mine came preinstalled with a virus that attempted to download a payload from Chinese servers the moment I connect it.

The system reports (using, "wmic memphysical get maxcapacityex" in command line) a max ram capacity of 32gb. It uses DDR4 PC4-25600 (3200MHz).

That said, manufacturers don't always update the data files for specific models within a broad product range (HP's 17 series). Some vendors (memorystock.com) report a max ram capacity of 64gb for this model.

Yes, it says so on the quick start guide.
07-12-2022 at 08:13 PM
weird... mine didnt come with a quick start guide. just a brown box saying "professionally refurbished HP Notebook PC", paper padding, the laptop and the AC adapter.
07-21-2022 at 02:24 PM
No, it won't. You may need to have a way to send it back to them stock. Make a copy of Windows and restore it to the original drive if needed. You will be responsible for any damage caused by you or the component installed.
08-04-2022 at 07:50 AM
I messaged the seller on Ebay, "as long as no damage is caused by installing SSD or M.2 warranty will be fine"

Translation: keep the old drive and carefully open to show no signs you touched it.

my recommendation is to install a NVME drive, clone windows to it and use the 1tb HDD for storage leaving it intact, this way you just send it in for warranty without having to swap the old drive in.

Yes and yes. It has 2 ram slots, with 1 8gb & 1 4gb installed. Replace the 4 with another 8 and add an ssd...

This system takes a maximum of 64GB (2x32GB) of DDR4 PC4-25600 3200MHz SODIMM.

According to the doc below (page 33), the 11th gen iris xe igpu supports the common codecs up to 4k. There is a disclaimer in there "Actual performance depends on the processor SKU, content bit rate, and memory frequency. Hardware decode for H264 SVC is not supported"

https://cdrdv2.intel.com/v1/dl/getContent/634648

I think it will do ok.

They are not bad at all, just don't expect premium.

Adding a NVME SSD is almost the first thing you need to do with this machine.

There's an empty M.2 slot, which can accept a 2280 form factor "gumstick" NVME SSD (but not a SATA M.2). Spend $40 more to get one & make it as the system drive. It will greatly improve the performance of this laptop.

The 1TB "old" HDD could be kept and used as media storage…

You don't need to. License is linked to bios. So just switch drive and reload windows.
I think you are misunderstanding the demographic these laptops target... People pulling the trigger on a $350 refurb probably don't have the $900 laying around to drop on a laptop.

No need to talk to me about the speed and sexiness of a Lambo when I am only working with a Corolla budget.

Pretty good specs for the price, with the exception of the HDD. As stated, you could continue to use the spinner for media storage. So maybe add $30 for a 512 GB M.2. The 12 GB of RAM probably doesn't need to be upgraded for most users, but the option is there.

The 17.3" screen is a highlight at this price, for those who need a large screen.

Can you provide the link for $30 512 gb m.2. Also, would I be able to add this myself? Have never opened a laptop so far and do not have any social tool.

Ok, it's more like $40.

A diagram was posted above. Looks like you just need a screwdriver.

If you want to make sure it's not stupidly difficult with ribbon cables and other junk in the way, try looking up the model to see if anyone has done a video guide on it.

Keep the hard drive! Great for media/document storage. As suggested earlier in the thread, spend another $30-$50 on an NVME SSD and use that for the operating system. This would then be a great little media device. Smilie

If someone didn't want the hard drive in the laptop, they could probably remove it and place it in an enclosure, or use it on another system, as long as the hard drive isn't some proprietary HP design that wouldn't be compatible with industry-standard mounting bays/external USB hard drive enclosures.

In short no. Integrated GPUs cannot be updated and the usb-c port will not function with an external GPU.

I agree that one should add NVME, but as someone who has been out of the updating world for awhile, how do you transfer the OS to that drive? And would it make sense to change the SATA to an SSD?
