HP EliteBook 8470p 14” Laptop with Docking Station (Refurbished, Grade-A)
Whether you use it primarily for streaming entertainment or running a small business, the HP EliteBook is a fast, efficient companion that’s light enough to take with you anywhere.
Set Up a Complete Workstation
The laptop comes with a docking station so you can permanently set up all your peripherals. Connect a mouse, keyboard, monitor, and up to four USB devices, such as a printer and external hard drive, and transition seamlessly to using them once you slip the EliteBook into the dock. When you have to take the laptop to work or a coffee shop, there’s no need to disconnect your devices and deal with a mess of cords. What’s more, the bundle includes an AC adapter that works with both the docking station and the laptop.
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.
Solid-State Drive: Speed and Reliability
The 128GB option’s built-in solid-state drive (SSD) performs the same duties of a traditional hard-disk drive, but up to 100 times faster. Unlike hard-disk drives, SSDs don’t rely on moving parts to write, store, and retrieve data; instead, they use flash memory chips that can boot up your computer and launch apps in mere seconds. Without the moving parts, SSDs are also lighter, take up less space within your computer, and are less susceptible to damage and data loss from computer bumps.

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.
