NeweggFlash offers the refurbished 4.9-lb. HP EliteBook 8440p Intel Core i5 2.4GHz 14" LED-Backlit Laptop for $229 with free shipping. That's $25 under our September mention (which had a larger hard drive) and the lowest total price we've ever seen for a HP EliteBook Core i5 model. (It's also a very strong price for a laptop with a Core i5 CPU in general.) Features include an Intel Core i5-520M 2.4GHz dual-core processor, 14" 1366x768 LED-backlit LCD, 4GB RAM, 160GB hard drive, 802.11n wireless, Gigabit Ethernet, 6-cell battery, and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit. Deal ends December 31.
A 90-day warranty applies, although it's unclear who supports it.
