Review HP ProBook 4720s Notebook

 

Pro-Consumer. Loosened business characteristics and glossy surfac

TFT non-reflective; Good key feedback; ExpressCard34 & eSATA; Good application performance with a fast HDD; Good run times; Cool case; Several security tools

Droning 7200rpm HDD; Loud under load; Stubborn ClickPad; Glossy key surroundings; Unfavorable positioning of interfaces; No docking port; Small color space

Acer Aspire 7551G: HD 5650 graphics; Toshiba Satellite L670D: more 3D performance but worse input devices; Satellite Pro L670-170: price war from 580 Euros; Dell Vostro 3700: also with i7 quad-core.
