Used HP EliteBook 2530p

The 12" HP EliteBook 2530p has the advantages of a small notebook computer and the features of the larger models on the market today. The primary difference which many users absolutely love is the fact that it actually has an optical drive. This is the unfortunate point of the smaller netbooks; they do not have any optical drive in them because they are so small. Not only does the EliteBook have one though, it has a fully functional CD/DVD rewritable drive. So there is no need to have to worry about getting any external drives like you would have to do with the netbooks if you need an optical drive.

The weight is still super light compared to 15-17 inch laptops so this can be a good option if you have been in-between deciding on which is more important, features or size. The 1.86GHz Intel Core 2 Duo has a 6MB cache and the system uses a 1066MHz Front Side Bus so it is also comparable to even some of the larger size budget used laptops under 300 dollars today. However there is more functionality which you might not expect to find in smaller laptops like this.

If you want to either install, or order this laptop with Windows 7 64-bit edition then you do have the option to utilize all 8GB of RAM which this system can handle. It is important to keep in mind that if you do want to upgrade to the full 8GB then you will only be able to utilize it with the 64-bit version of Windows 7, not the 32-bit version. The 32-bit version will not be able to use all 8GB so it would not be beneficial to install all of that RAM unless you do plan to use the 64-bit version of the OS. This is not unique to this laptop though, it applies to any computer which can handle 8GB of RAM.
