HP EliteBook 840 G1 14” Laptop with Intel Core i5-4300U CPU, 8GB RAM, and 128GB SSD or 320GB HDD (Refurbished, A-Grade)
Windows 10 Pro, a snappy dual-core Intel processor, and an optional SSD make this laptop a capable machine for taking care of work on-the-go—packing enough power to multitask in several applications at once on the sharp 14” HD display.
Windows 10 Professional
Windows 10 Professional meets the demands of business-minded users with a suite of productivity and security software. Keep calendars and emails organized with the Cortana digital assistant, take notes directly on webpages with Microsoft Edge, and leave the office with peace of mind knowing that your data is safely secured under multiple layers of digital security. And if you forget to do something before heading home, you can remotely log on to your work computer to tie up loose ends.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with about 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality similar to what you’d see on an HDTV with 720p HD resolution. Such sharpness and clarity also make the text on your favorite news and social-media sites clear and easy to read.
Video Chat with Anyone, Anywhere
A built-in webcam can make it feel like people miles away are in the room with you, helping you connect more clearly than with a phone call or email. Collaborate with colleagues in other offices, listen as your niece or nephew rapturously explains their finger painting, or laugh every time your friend’s cat walks across their keyboard.

When iconic company Hewlett-Packard was born in 1939, it was not in a gleaming laboratory or during a late-night study session at a prestigious university. It was in a 12’x18’ garage that contained only a workbench and a used drill press. University friends Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard sold audio equipment to Disney (which used them during Fantasia production) and became HP soon after. Their humble garage is now marked with a plaque bearing the title “Birthplace of Silicon Valley”.
HP’s innovations laid the groundwork for the Valley’s surge in technological advances. Between the creation of the first handheld computer, which connected to printers and cassette drives, and development of speedier 64-bit processing technology currently used by brands such as Apple and Microsoft, HP cemented itself as an architect of current tech trends including the tablet and smartphone. It’s a community-conscious company, too; HP has donated to charity since 1940 and offers free recycling for all electronics, regardless of brand, at Staples.
