HP ProBook 4430s-XU013UT Laptop Review

 

Balancing for business. HP's latest laptop in the ProBook S-series aims to balance form, function and specifications for professional users on a budget. Does it combine these demands into a solid business laptop?

Affordable price, HP's ProtectTools security suite, Good preinstalled software, Good software support, solid build quality

Midrange performance, Power cord sticks out, Tight fit for USB devices, Average benchmark performance

HP ProBook 4430s: A Business Laptop With a Dash of Class

 

The HP 4430s is endowed with above-average looks, but in other respects it is the epitome of a basic, all-purpose business laptop. It's good at nearly everything, though not so good that you're likely to think "This is it!" It offers biometric...

Good screen and input ergonomics ; Attractive and affordable

No USB 3.0 ; Modest performance and battery life

A nice looking, but still journeyman business laptop that lacks USB 3.0.

HP ProBook 4430s

 

The 4430s has a chiclet-style keyboard, and its matte-black keys are actually rather stout. Where many laptops use low-profile keys for a light and effortless typing experience, the keys of the Probook feel sturdy under the finger tips, and no comfort...

Intel Core i3 processor gets the job done. All metal construction is lightweight, durable, and suitably stylish. HP provides full-fledged business security

Average display. On the go business begs for WiMAX support

The HP ProBook 4430s offers the parts and package to get work done without blowing your company's budget. Strong security, a work-horse Intel Core i3-2310M processor, and a look that's all business make this a laptop worth considering.

The 4430s is a solid, affordable business laptop that looks good in the meeting room and will get the job done. The absence of a high-speed local bus, however, is a definite drawback.

It's always hard to be a business laptop. Unlike their counterparts on either end of the cost-value spectrum, business laptops usually have to navigate an uneasy balance between cost and features. After all, users might expect lower specs from a...
