Review HP ProBook 4510s Notebook

 

CrisesBook. Not only are saturated profits in the wallet gone for

Acceptable port facilities; Gigabit LAN and Bluetooth ex works; HSPA broadband internet optionally available; Generous keyboard with separate numberpad; QuickLook function; Very bright display, matte variant available; Reasonable battery life of 3-4 hours

Case is very susceptible to dirt; A basic warranty of only a year, an upgrade incurs an additional charge; Keyboard is difficult to clean; Low viewing angle stability of the glare display; Fan is clearly audible even without a load

Almost all well-known manufacturers already have a range of low-price business models on offer. For example the Vostro series from Dell, the Thinkpad SL models from Lenovo or even the Extensa series from Acer.

HP ProBook 4510s Review

 

The HP ProBook 4510s is the latest 15.6" business notebook designed to provide solid performance at a low price for small and medium businesses. If your company wants the HP Elitebook 8530p but doesn't have the budget to spend $1,350 per laptop, the...

A great price for a 15.6" business notebook ; Nice keyboard ... despite some flex ; Attractive design and relatively light weight

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

Bottom line, the HP ProBook 4510s is a fine notebook for its intended market, but if HP made a few simple changes to the design and purchase options then business buyers would have even more reasons to buy this laptop

HP ProBook 4510s - Review of the HP ProBook 4510s

 

Polished design, Above-average battery life, Bright 16:9 display with good viewing angles, Durability and security features, Comfortable keyboard with number pad

Awkward touch buttons, No fingerprint reader

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...

If the EliteBooks are enterprise products and the Compaqs small business, where exactly do the ProBooks fit in? The short answer is both. The ProBooks will be divided into a business class, denoted by a "b" at the end of the model number (due out later...

Excellent for businesses on a tight budget. Remarkable battery life with either the six- or eight-cell battery. Wide, bright screen. Stylish keyboard. Numeric keypad included. Security software for businesses with no IT staff. 3G modems are available....

Picks up smudges outside and in. Frame seems hollow when you tap on it

The HP ProBook 4510s is an excellent small-business laptop thanks to its price, battery life, and security software, but make sure you have a cloth handy to wipe away all those fingerprints.

Review: HP ProBook 4510s notebook

 

One of the bigger trends in laptops over the past year or two has been the growth of small business notebooks. Many manufacturers have started to segment their business products between those designed for large business and small/home businesses in...

The all-new HP ProBook 4510s delivers some surprising features and decent performance for small-business buyers on a budget.

Low price; decent productivity performance; HP ProtectTools security extras; LED-backlit display

Sluggish 3D-graphics performance; no multimedia control keys; narrow viewing angle for DVD video; no fingerprint reader

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

HP ProBook 4510s Notebook PC (VA033PA)

 

The HP ProBook 4510s Notebook PC (VA033PA) is a 15.6in laptop designed for business users, but it looks nothing like a business notebook. It has plent...

Good value, well built, good performance, good battery life, stylish, light for a 15.6in notebook

Slow hard drive, annoying touchpad buttons, no full-sized ExpressCard/54 slot

We like the looks, performance and user-friendliness of the HP ProBook 4510s Notebook PC (VA033PA), as well as its competitive price. We think it's a great choice for any business user (particularly an accountant) who wants something that isn't a...

HP ProBook 4510s-NX613EA - 15.6in Business Laptop

 

HP produces a stylish business laptop for less than £500 exc. VAT.

Still, the recessed touchpad is a delight to use and it's placed so that your palms won't accidentally brush the pad while typing. Similar praise can't be lavished on its buttons. While they're well-positioned they feel a tad loose and imprecise. Build...

HP ProBook 4510s review

 

Thanks to its glossy, piano-black lid and square edges, the ProBook 4510s looks both smart and businesslike.

An interesting design and reasonable performance, but considering the low specification it's simply too expensive.
