Down-to-earth. That's the best way to describe the new HP entry level business notebook. A new case design, solid construction, and up-to-date hardware, as well as a 15.6 inch display, are the most important prerequisites. Is the HP ProBook 4530s with...

HP ProBook 4530s

 

An attractive brushed-metal design, good ergonomics, and strong security make the HP ProBook 4530s our favorite 15-inch laptop for small businesses.

The HP ProBook 4530s hits the sweet spot. At $729, it offers a durable and sleek brushed-aluminum design, solid security, and Core i5 power for a price that's right. We're not fans of the small arrow keys, and those who want discrete graphics will have...

HP ProBook 4530s

 

In this tumultuous economic summer of 2011, one thing's a sure bet: plenty of scrutiny of business budgets well into 2012. Now's probably not the right time to try and pass a bundle of four-figure laptops through for approval when a more modest model...

Sturdy, stylish metal chassis ; Affordable price ; Competitive performance ; Includes strong proprietary software

Only one-year warranty ; No USB 3.0, eSATA ports ; Weak audio output

A small-business machine, this ProBook won’t win any speed races, but its component mix, security software, and nice chassis make it a smart buy for offices on a budget.

HP ProBook 4530s review

 

The keyboard has isolated keys and is mostly efficient, though the up and down cursor keys are tiny and are fiddly and the keyboard isn't quite as comfy under the fingers as many. We really like that you can disable the touchpad with a simple double...

The Hewlett Packard ProBook 4530s LH311EA could double up as an office and home laptop, and the fingerprint sensor is a nice extra for the security-conscious user.

HP Probook 4530s review

 

HP's ProBook range sits between the business-focused EliteBook series and the more consumer oriented Pavilion laptops. The 4530s is a good example: its brushed-metal finish, simple yet sleek design and high performance components won't look out of...

A business laptop for the masses maybe, but home users can find better value elsewhere
