Review HP ProBook 4310s Notebook

 

Assiduous saver? HP serves business customers in the field of sma

Good stability of the base unit; Digital HDMI video output; Generous keyboard; Bright LED display; Good office performance

Case is susceptible to pollution; Ports are located in the front area of the lateral edges; Only 12 months warranty; Only glare panel available for now; Fan is always present

How nonpractical high-gloss surfaces can be - fingerprints, wear marks, unpleasantly sticky feel - one readily passes on it, especially on business notebooks.

HP ProBook 4310s Review

 

The HP ProBook 4310s takes the same design we've seen from the ProBook 4510s and 4710s and made it more portable thanks to a 13-inch display. The 4310s was designed to provide road warriors with a low-cost machine that still delivers solid performance....

A good price for a 13.3" business notebook ; Nice keyboard ; Attractive design and relatively lightweight

Not-so-great build quality ; Custom configurations are overpriced ; Touchpad buttons are just plain horrible

Finally, we recorded the following external temperatures using an IR thermometer after running two consecutive PCMark05 benchmarks. This should serve as an indicator of how hot the notebook will get after about 30 minutes of serious use. All...

HP ProBook 4310s (FM971UT) - A Review of the HP ProBook 4310s (FM971UT)

 

Good performance, Classy design, Competitively priced, Loud speakers

Awkward touchpad buttons, Design a bit thick, Mediocre viewing angles

The 2.0-megapixel webcam showed pleasant lighting in both still shots and VGA video. Stills, in particular, included an impressive amount of detail, such as the shine in our hair. Video captures looked smooth, but because it's fixed focus, the image...

Over the years, small business owners have been faced with a new type of worker: One who fancies working in multiple locations and is never in one place for long—a telecommuter, per se. The HP ProBook 4310s ($880 direct) is a mix of traditional...

Fast hard drive. Matted screen minimizes glare. Has RJ11 and Finger print reader. Lightweight. Inexpensive

Boxy, thick design. 37WH battery alone is not enough for road warriors

The HP ProBook 4310s is inexpensive and comes with a nice mix of business and consumer features, but make sure you buy an additional battery before taking the plunge.

Review: HP ProBook 4310s

 

When HP launched the ProBook series back in April of this year it was clear that they were just starting off. The company had plans to attack the small business segment and would be doing so with a number of models. Our original review covered the...

HP's ProBook 4310s is a nice all-rounder, but battery life could be better

 

The ProBook 4310s is a competent business laptop with plenty of positive qualities

It might not do quite enough to win an award, but we can't help liking the little ProBook 4310s. It's as comfortable hooked up to an HDTV as it is churning through an Excel spreadsheet, and as a sensible, compact, all-round laptop, it has plenty to offer.

The ProBook 4310s is a competent business laptop with plenty of positive qualities

It's a good thing, too, as reflections are kept to a minimum, and despite the slight loss in vibrancy, the HP still made a good fist of our test photos, with accurate colours and only weak contrast counting against it

HP ProBook 4310S

 

After laying eyes on HP's ProBook 4310s for the first time, you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd travelled back through time to an age when laptops were square and practical, but never particularly pretty. But despite the fact that there's hardly a...

It might look a little 1980s, but it skilfully blurs the line between business and pleasure

If you find that the price is right and you are only planning on doing menial tasks, you could do a lot worse than the HP ProBook.

Decent battery life

No expandability through docks, odd for a business product, Not a great screen

If you find that the price is right and you are only planning on doing menial tasks, you could do a lot worse than the HP ProBook.

HP - ProBook 4310s

 

HP has built a solid foundation of smart and efficient business notebooks and if you don't want to spend the extra money needed for one of the EliteBook range, then the latest in the junior ProBook ...

If you want a smart, solid, well performing and dependable notebook that's comfortable to operate and throws in a number of useful and entertaining peripherals, then the ProBook 4310s is definitely worth examining, despite some glaring design flaws.
