Review HP ProBook 4530s Notebook

 

Down-to-earth. That's the best way to describe the new HP entry l

Simple and elegant design; Good manufacturing quality and stability; Easy to upgrade; 3G UMTS module optional; Good interface selection; Good input devices with alphanumeric keypad; Battery life and power consumption

Meager accessories; Only 12 months warranty; Average display characteristics; Cooling constantly active (idle) and loud under load

Affordable office notebooks with a 15.6 inch display and up-to-date hardware. Among these are for example the new and comparable Samsung 200B5B-S01DE, the more expensive HP EliteBook 8560p, Lenovo's ThinkPad L520, or the Dell Latitude E6520 entry model...

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

HP ProBook 4530s review

 

When we first came across this laptop late last year it cost around £100 more than it does now. Back then we thought it was sturdy and versatile. We hold to that, although we should note that the build isn't what many might first expect.

Awesome little laptop

 

To sum it all up accept for my personal choice to add ram its a very sweet laptop which i will have hopefully for the next four years while in college.

My first laptop and I received it for college through the VA. I opened it up and had it set up with in minutes. Everything it stated like the size hard drive and such was exactly that. I love the fingerprint scan to access the laptop. I am one to forget a

Nothing I can see yet unless your talking my personal preference in adding another 4g in ram. Sexy sleek and fast can get my work done any were like while doing the laundry (used to dread laundry but not now) :)
