However, when buying a used build of the Folio 9470m, the specs of the product you’d be buying, would likely to quite different from those of a new build.
And the rest of this content would be examining the things that might be different and shouldn’t be different.
So here are its Specs and Features: New vs Used
When buying a used build of Folio 9470m, one of those things unlikely to be different, is the processor.
New builds of this laptop were made to come with the following processors: Intel Core i3 3227U, Intel Core i5 3427U, and Intel Core i7 3667U.
And one of these processors is what you should find in your build of Folio 9470m.
And for those who haven’t heard about these processors, well, the Intel Core i3 3227U has always ranked as one of the best for the kind of people it was designed for.
The processor is a dual-core processor which has four virtual cores.
In other words, the cores of this CPU can’t no only be clocked at 1.90 GHz, they also support multi threading.
And to put in simpler terms, the Intel Core i3 3227U is CPU which can run four different tasks at a time.
As for the Intel Core i5 3427U, it also comes with two physical cores.
It cores furthermore have support for multi threading, making the processor have four virtual cores.
But unlike the Core i3 processor discussed above, the Intel Core i5 3427U has cores which can be clocked as high as 2.80 GHz.
In other words, if you’re not the kind who carries out extremely computing-intensive tasks, Folio 9470m coming with the Intel Core i5 3427U should be good enough.
Like many HP laptops, Folio 9470m may come with an Intel Core i3, Core i5, or Core i7 processor.
And as regards the kind of Core i7 processor you might find in Folio 9470m, the Intel Core i7 3667U processor is what’s featured in this laptop, when the laptop is said to feature a Core i7 processor.
New builds of Folio 9470m which come with the Intel Core i3 3227U, often come with 4 GB of RAM.
And a RAM of 4 GB is more than enough for the kind of people the laptop was designed for.
And even when you’re buying a used build of this laptop, the used product is also very likely to come with 4 GB of RAM.
But even though the product comes with 4 GB of RAM, this doesn’t mean the laptop can’t have more storage. If you’d like to equip your Core i3 HP
Folio 9470m with additional RAM, there is room for this.
But when planning to add more RAM to the laptop, you should understand that there are only two RAM slots in the computer.
And also, the total amount of memory you can have, is 16 GB.
In other words, the best you could do, is to equip the laptop with two 8 GB RAMs.
As for new Core i5 Folio 9470m, they ordinarily also come with 4 GB of RAM.
A RAM of 4 GB would be okay with a good number of users this laptop was designed for.
And for those who feel they’d need more memory, the Core i5 Folio 9470m has support for memory expansion.
But when planning to expand the memory of the laptop, you should understand that you can’t have more than a total of 16 GB.
And this 16 GB can not also be provided by more than two RAMs.
A new build of Folio 9470m which is powered by the Intel Core i7 3667U processor, would come with 8 GB of RAM.
Featuring a RAM of 4 GB would be a big mistake, so 8 GB of RAMs are featured in builds of this laptop.
But this isn’t to mean all used builds of this laptop would come with 8 GB of RAM.
In other words, you may see a used build of this laptop which would come with 4 GB of RAM.
But regardless of what amount of storage space you have, you can always have as much as 32 GB of RAM. But the laptop only has support for two slots.
In other words, if you’d like to have up to 32 GB of RAM, you’d need two 16 GB RAM.
When buying a used build of the Folio 9470m laptop, the storage device that was originally put in the laptop, is not one of those things you should expect.
Storage devices are the first of things that get faulty in a laptop.
In other words, when buying a used build of the laptop, you should expect the storage device to have been replaced.
However, ordinarily, new builds of the Core i3 Folio 9470m always come with 320 GB HDD storage.
There is no doubt about the fact that HDD storage devices are not as fast as SSDs, but let’s not forget the kind of users the Core i3 version is designed for.
As for new builds of the Core i5 Folio 9470m, they come with 180 GB of SSD storage.
But when you’re buying a used one, there’s no guarantee you’d also be getting an SSD storage.
Most used builds of this laptop come with 500 GB of HDD storage.
In other words, people interested in SSD storage may have to spend some extra cash.
New builds of the Core i7 Folio 9470m also ordinarily come with SSD storage. But their SSD storage devices are larger than those of Core i5 HP Folio 9470.
New builds of Core i7 Folio 9470m comes with 256 GB SSD.
And even up till date, such storage is not bad for an Intel Core i7 processor. However, you shouldn’t expect such storage in a used build of this laptop.
And even if you find a used Core i7 Folio 9470m, it’s very likely to cost you above the N95,000 we stated earlier.
When Folio 9470m was released, builds of the laptop either run the Windows 7 operating system or the Windows 8 operating system.
The Core i3 builds are those which run the Windows 7 OS. And the builds powered by Core i5 and Core i7 processors are those running the Windows 8 OS.
However, regardless of what version you buy today, the laptop is most likely to run the Windows 10 operating system.
And this is of course of a good thing.
However, if you need to use a genuine version of Windows, you might have to pay some amount of money to Microsoft.
The HP Folio 9470m is hands-down one of the best products we’d recommend anyone trying to buy a used laptop in Nigeria at an affordable price.
When this machine was released, it ranked as a high-end product.
In other words, it still has a place, and it would remain relevant for years to come.
And as we have already stated above, used builds of this machine should sell between N70,000 and N95,000.
If someone tries to sell this product at a price higher than N95,000, you should leave them and find some else to buy from.
