Review HP ProBook 4710s Notebook

 

Reasonable 17.3-incher for Professionals HP primarily designed th ...

Comfortable keyboard ; General build simplicity ; Long battery runtime

Produces lots of noise ; Poor workmanship ; No keys combination for touchpad ; High heat development at the bottom of the chassis

Overall, the Probook 4710s proves to be an interesting bundle for not much money. However, because of the reflecting display, the test sample is rather an entry-level multimedia device. Performance and connectivity (HDMI) would also fit

HP ProBook 4710s Review

 

The HP ProBook 4710s is a low-priced 17-inch business notebook designed to provide businesses with a good desktop replacement notebook without breaking the bank. If your company wants the HP Elitebook 8730w but has a tight budget, the ProBook 4710s...

A great price for a 17" business notebook ; Nice keyboard ; Attractive, conservative design

Sub-par build quality ; Bad touchpad buttons ; Too difficult to upgrade ; Poor thermal design (gets hot)

Bottom line, the HP ProBook 4710s, like the rest of the ProBook line, is a good notebook for its intended market. However, HP has some room for improvement if they want to turn this laptop into a deal that's too good to pass up

The ProBook 4710s performed well in our standard performance tests, racking up a score of 2854 in 3DMark and 5308 in PCMark. As a working machine then, the ProBook 4710s should work quite hard, something that's backed up by its battery life. We can't...
