I DESCRIBE ALL OF MY ITEMS VERY ACCURATELY.
THE PICTURES ARE OF THE ITEM THAT IS FOR SALE. NOT STOCK PHOTOS. I HAVE A LOT OF PHOTOS ABOVE AND MANY, MANY MORE HERE IN THE DESCRIPTION; SHOWING YOU EVERYTHING YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE SYSTEM.
PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO READ THROUGH THE ENTIRE DESCRIPTION AND SEE ALL THERE IS TO SEE BEFORE DECIDING TO BUY.



FOR SALE IS AN EXCELLENT CONDITION OFF LEASE HP 8710W MOBILE WORKSTATION.

IT IS IN EXCELLENT PHYSICAL AND MECHANICAL CONDITION.
THE KEYBOARD IS PERFECT WITH NO WORN KEYS.
THE TOUCHPAD IS ALSO GREAT WITH NO SHINE AND ONLY A SMALL DIVOT ON THE LEFT BUTTON. SCROLL WORKS PERFECTLY.
THERE ARE A COUPLE OF LIGHT SURFACE SCRATCHES AND SMALL DINGS ON THETOP COVER.
THE SCREEN IS THE ONLY MARK AGAINST THE SYSTEM. IT HAS DARK SPOTS IN THE UPPER CORNERS WHERE IT APPEARS THAT THE PREVIOUS OWNER WAS CARRYING IT HORIZONTAL WITH HEAVY PRESSURE AGAINST THE TOP LID.
(WSXGA+ SCREENS FOR THE 8710W ARE AVAILABLE FROM $50 AND UP ON EBAY AND WITH THE HP SERVICE MANUAL; THE CHANGE SHOULD ONLY TAKE AN HOUR OR SO.)




IT HAS A SUPER FAST CRUCIAL M4 128GB SATA3/6Gb HARD DRIVE INSTALLED
(IT'S LIMITED BY THE SATA2 INTERFACE ON THE MOTHERBOARD). IT MAKES THE SYSTEM SCREAM. STARTUP IS ONLY ABOUT 30 SECONDS.




A MAJOR BONUS.
I INSTALLED THE UPGRADED GPU DUAL PIPE HEATSINK
!! (HP 468593-001) IT IS FULLY READY FOR A QUADRO FX 3600M TO BE DROPPED IN. DID THE HARD PART FOR YOU. (FINDING THAT DANG HEATSINK.) FX 3600Ms CAN BE FOUND ALL OVER EBAY FOR ~$100 FOR A FAST UPGRADE WITHOUT THE FEAR OF OVERHEATING.


WITH THE STOCK FX 1600M, THE CHANGE IN GPU TEMPS AT FULL LOAD WAS SUBSTANTIAL!! A 16C REDUCTION!!! THESE SCREEN SHOTS WERE TAKEN AT IDLE AND WHILE RUNNING STANFORD'S FOLDINGatHOME PROGRAM. RUNNING BOTH THE CPU AND GPU AT FULL LOAD. (AMBIENT TEMP WAS ABOUT 63F IN MY HOUSE AT THE TIME OF TESTING.)
IDLE STOCK IDLE DUAL TUBE FULL LOAD STOCK FULL LOAD DUAL TUBE



I WOULD RATE THE UNIT 9 OUT OF 10. THE ONLY REAL CHECK AGAINST IT IS THE DARK SPOTS ON THE SCREEN.
THIS COMPUTER IS READY TO ROLL RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX. IT HAS BEEN ROLLED BACK TO ADMIN AS THE ONLY USER. AND WIPED OF ALL THIRD PARTY (EXCEPT HP) PROGRAMS.
