HP EliteBook 8770W Detailed eBay Pricing Guide

I've yet to come across an HP 8770W, it is a massive machine, however I did get a 8760W for a bit and man that thing was awesome! Really like the build quality. I paid $260 for it from Arrow Direct for a 'B-Grade" unit, which had one ding on the lid. Added 500GB HDD, 16GB RAM, sold it for $600. :)

This model has i5 and i7 dual core processors, and i7 quadcore, which has 4 RAM slots, the other do not! If you're getting one this big, then make sure you get a quadcore model, otherwise a mobo swap might be too tedious. Also not sure if the dual core i5 or i7 chips support anything more than 16GB if you do decide to swap.

Bonus points for D R E A M C O L O R D I S P L A Y S
But the base 1080p screen is gud too.
additionally, these use MXM GPUs, so unlike the ThinkPad W530 and Macbook, you aren't fucked if the GPU dies. you can use other GPUs but the M6700 beats it from being able to source more cards.

HP 8770W - $240 - 420 // 920 ~ 82 v 88
8770w  - $360 - 600 / 820 ~ 88 v 51 - Old pricing

Wow not too many of these, they seem to sell a bit more than last year... :O

4 Risky    - $180 - 400
47 HDD   - $225 - 410 // 850
20 SSD     - $310 - 440 // 750
S-Furb      - None
3 M-Furb  - $690 - 755 // 835 (all from the same seller, these are seller refurbs in excellent cond.)
New/Other - none
New - none

23 i5 - $200 - 280 // 400
22 i7 QM - 335 - 430 // 600
3 i7 XM - $190 - 415 // 850 (lol that buy it now low price as is machine, good luck ya bastards)
2 16GB -  $320 - 550 // 725 or 900
0 32GB  - $550 - 750 // 1000 - Only two units sold, these are active listings & my recommendation.
2 IPS - $775 - 880 - 3 reasons, Rare as fuck, sellers don't know or (most likely) not in title.

Skipping the auction/buy it now price section. its boring to do :(
So OFC there are i7 machines, but some of us want to get XM and QM. However a lot of sellers don't specify if it is QM or XM in the title, so less are shown here. Because I specified QM, not too many showed up, as there are a lot without the processor spec... unlike the lenovo, Dell is similar lol
Also one or two dream color units. They would probably sell for more.

15 Keys       - $20 - 37 // 52 or 70 or 225? lol
12 Mobo      - $90 - 150 // 225 (a lot are dual RAM slot, not quad...)
3 FHD LCD - $65 - 90 // 130...
9 Battery      - $33 - 50
9 Charger     - $15 - 40 // 65 or 90

Damn... this motherboard is expensive. Seeing a 4 RAM slot model is easy, some sellers don't notice it but as long as you see the two RAM slots next to the CPU tray, thats a 4 RAM slot model! Some of them are sold for under $100, which I recommend.

I don't feel like researching graphics cards... but spend $50 to $200 depending on config. :P
