    Just use the Samsung SSD, I'm using it in my 8560w for quite some time with no issues. And AFAIK you won't void warranty if you only swap the drive.

    Should I remove the 24GB SSD cache drive too?

    If you want to you can...not much point in a cache SSD if you have an SSD as the main drive.

    Hi Everyone,
    I just Ordered a refurbished 8570w item# 669465R-999-FVJM

    specs:
    Intel Core i7 3740QM(2.70GHz)
    4GB Memory
    180GB SSD
    NVIDIA Quadro K1000M
    HD+ Display

    I know i can update the ram to 32gb. However can i update the screen and is it worth it. i see WUXGA screens online for $80.
    Also, has anyone tried a nvidia k3000m, k4000m, k5000m. otherwise can i even update to the k2000m. i need the Nvidia for gfx work

    We have 3 new HP Elitebook 8570w notebooks that are well equipped (i7 CPU,
    8GB RAM, large HDD) at our office and ALL THREE are having problems locking up -
    hangs - freezes using Windows 8 Professional OS.

    Troubleshooting: We've scanned for viruses, installed Windows Updates, found
    no pgms or services taking too much CPU or RAM, etc.

    I've turned OFF Windows Search utility which helps a little .. but now
    Outlook searches are VERY slow. I've increased the Windows SWAP file to 3 times
    RAM (24GB) .. but system still hangs and runs very slow.

    ANY SUGGESTIONS to fix this issue will be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    Install the latest BIOS version from HP.com. I'd also check if the systems were recently upgraded with a third party RAM/HDD from the same supplier. Incompatible/bad ram sticks could cause freezes. Also check the event viewer for errors that occur during the time freezes. Hopefully this will give you some leads.

    Does anyone know if the 8570w has the same screen that the 8560w does? Namely, the LP156WF3-SLB1 LP156WF3-SLB2 or LP156WF3-SLB3?

    I saw that this is a 10-bit screen, which is extremely rare for a laptop. The macbook pro retina is only an 8-bit.

    If it is, in fact, a 10-bit screen, can anyone comment on how they like it?

    Thanks!

    Edit: After reading through a lot of the posts here, it seems that you Can get a "dreamcolor" display which is 10-bit. So now my question is: do you have to specifically ask for that? Are you guaranteed Dreamcolor 2 (vs. dreamcolor 1 or "hd display")?

    Edit2: One final question: how does this display match up to the Macbook Pro Retina? There's a huge thread on eye strain over on the mac forum (https://discussions.apple.com/message/7937338#7937338) and I'm one of the people that has had this life-altering (had to quit work) eye strain. This is why I'm looking into the 8570w. Could anyone take a video of their 8570w screen and send it here? I would be so immensely grateful to see the screen at multiple distances to see how much of an issue dithering/pwm (flickering) is.
