HP Elitebook 2570P 12.5” Laptop (Refurbished)
Whether you’re hastily putting out fires at work or reading dozens of sources for an essay, this Elitebook keeps you working at a steady clip thanks to its multitasking-friendly hardware. Load up Windows 10’s Cortana digital assistant to organize meetings and get notifications about deadlines, and use the built-in webcam to touch base with colleagues or classmates.
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.
Seamless Digital Organization with Cortana
Designed to keep you organized and informed, Cortana is a nimble digital assistant that works on every Windows 10 device. The program helps you set time-, person-, or location-based reminders, then pushes them out to your compatible PC, tablet, and smartphone simultaneously when needed. On compatible devices, Cortana also recognizes voice commands and lets you dictate emails with ease.
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 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.
