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...

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.

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
