HP 17.3” Notebook with Intel Pentium Processor (Manufacturer Refurbished)
Despite being around an inch thick, this sleek notebook houses plenty of powerful components that are useful for both work and entertainment. Its spacious 17.3” high-definition display is great for watching movies and gives you enough room to split the screen between multiple windows. Meanwhile, a snappy quad-core processor keeps everything running smoothly as you multitask.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with more than 1 million pixels, the display produces image quality better than 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.
An OS for the Modern Machine
Windows 10 pairs the flexibility of a traditional computer operating system with the intuitive layout of a mobile OS. A fast new web browser, the media- and app-filled Windows Store, and Cortana personal assistant come pre-installed, working together to help you easily navigate to what you’d like to see or do.
Ample Storage Space
Download a season of your favorite TV show before heading on a long flight, or transfer work files to finish later at a cafe. Just a single terabyte (TB) can hold up to 250 DVD-quality films or 17,000 hours of music—enough to play your library nonstop for almost two years without ever repeating a song.
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.
DVD-RW Optical Drive
Backup and transfer your data with ease using a DVD-RW drive, which not only plays DVDs, but lets you create your own. After writing your music, movie, and media files to a rewritable DVD, you can view them on a TV, transfer them to another computer, or keep them in storage as an emergency backup. DVD-RW drives are compatible with the following discs: CD-R, CD-RW DVD-R, and DVD-RW.

When iconic company HP 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 it 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 like Apple and Microsoft, HP cemented itself as an architect of current tech trends like 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.
