Fully tested and ready to offer, is a rebuilt HP 8570w Mobile Workstation in excellent condition. The HP EliteBook 8570w is best suited for video and photo editing, 3D modeling, CAD, or any application requiring high quality dedicated graphics that only Nvidia can deliver. This EliteBook is equipped with a Nvidia Quadro K2000M MXM graphics card with 2GB of GDDR3 memory. It is also equipped with an Intel Core i7-3820QM 2.7GHz processor with a max turbo frequency of 3.7GHz. Four physical cores with eight threads acting as logical cores, and a Smart Cache of 8MB, will multitask to get the job done quickly and efficiently. To keep the processor from freezing or stalling, I installed a matching set (2x8GB) of Corsair Vengeance high-performance RAM totaling 16GB under the keyboard, leaving two empty slots under the bottom service cover for expansion to a full 32GB. The primary hard drive (boot drive) I selected is lightly used Samsung 850 Pro 256GB solid-state drive (SSD) with 98% of its life remaining. Only 6TB’s have been written on this drive, and they are good for well over 150TB under their 10-year warranty. The Samsung Pro Series 3D V-NAND MLC SSD’s are the fastest, most durable drives Samsung produces. I replaced the DVD-RW optical drive with a second hard drive, a lightly used Seagate Momentus XT 750GB solid-state hybrid drive in excellent health. This is the fastest SSHD available in this capacity, spinning at 7200RPM. Not only does this drive have a 64MB buffer, it also has 8GB of NAND flash memory that adapts to the user's algorithms. In simple terms, the programs that are launched the most frequently are stored in the flash memory to launch those programs faster with each use. Larger programs, video and picture files, and system backups can be stored on the SSHD, reserving the SSD for smaller programs and working files in progress that launch almost instantaneously. The Samsung 850 Pro will load the system from power button to desktop in under 20 seconds.

On the Samsung 850 Pro SSD, I installed genuine copies of Windows 10 Professional x64 and Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2019. Also installed is a copy of AVG PC Tuneup with a 1-year license to keep the drive clean and running at optimum performance. All paid software keys have been recorded to a document in the documents folder. Additional software was installed to enhance performance, functionality and security. The system BIOS and hardware drivers are up to date with no driver issues, with the exception of the HP Mobile Data Protection Sensor that is known to cause issues in Windows 10, so I disabled it. The CPU and GPU cores were coated with a generous amount of Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste, and the memory modules on the graphics card with fresh blue thermal pads for the best possible heat transfer. All gold contacts on the SSD, graphics card, and Wi-Fi module have been prepped with DeOxit Gold for enhance conductivity.

The HP Elitebook 8570w features an HD webcam, a backlit keyboard, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, an SD card reader, USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, audio/video ports, FireWire support, and a docking station port. A dual-monitor desktop configuration can be achieved with the optional docking station, and they are less expensive than you might think. Next to the Nvidia case badge pictured is a fingerprint reader compatible with Windows 10 Hello. Once it is set up, logging into Windows is as easy as a swipe of the forefinger. The EliteBook will be furnished with a genuine HP Slim 150-watt AC power adapter, a stylish case with a zippered side pocket, and a system repair disc in the event Windows fails to start.

This project took me weeks to build and test, using only quality used parts shipped in from reputable sellers. I back my EliteBook's with a 30-day money back guarantee, and a 6-month local part and labor warranty. I stock an ample supply of parts for these, so down time will be minimal should there be a malfunction. If you have any questions, or would like additional photos, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thanks for looking!
