HP Special Edition Star Wars 15.6” Touchscreen Laptop (Refurbished)
With custom decals and a futuristic touchscreen display, this gaming laptop can make you feel like you’re helming a Death Star terminal as you swipe through apps and control programs with your fingertips. It’s not bad under the hood, either—speedy hardware provides plenty of processing power and memory to keep modern games chugging along at a steady clip.
Built for Gaming
Crank up the settings and enjoy lifelike facial expressions, faraway fields swaying in the breeze, and enemy hordes at buttery-smooth frame rates thanks to this gaming laptop’s beefy hardware. A quad-core processor is joined by a whopping 12GB of RAM and an AMD Radeon graphics card, which packs the system with 6,383MB of dedicated graphics memory.
Stream shows, catch the latest movie trailers, or explore an online video game’s vivid fantasyland in crisp, clear detail. Saturated with over 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.
Touchscreen Display: Tablet-Like Control
Zoom in on photos, jump to the next story on news apps, or play a mobile game on a bigger screen—all without using the keyboard or touchpad. A touchscreen display expands your control, giving you more ways to interact with apps and programs that support touch gestures. For more traditional tasks, such as answering emails, you can move back to the keyboard at any time.
Ample Storage Space
As new games are released you won’t have to part ways with games of yesteryear to make room. There’s also plenty of room for movies and music, too. 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.

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.
