HP ProBook 4430s-XU013UT Laptop Review


Balancing for business. HP's latest laptop in the ProBook S-serie

Affordable price; HP's ProtectTools security suite; Good preinstalled software

Midrange performance; Power cord sticks out; Tight fit for USB devices

However, with unremarkable benchmark results and a display that features midrange visual fidelity, the 4430s falls directly into the middle of the pack when it comes to performance. Still, features such as QuickWeb and a solid, unobtrusive security...

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

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.

HP ProBook 4430s review


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.
