Review HP ProBook 5330m-LG724EA Notebook


Silver Worker. With the ProBook 5330m, HP is updating the smalles

Stylish design; High quality material choices; Good keyboard (pleasant typing feel, back lit); Matte display; UMTS+ WAN; Many security features; Low weight; Good performance; SSD drive

Poor display (dark, poor contrast); Paltry interface selection; Cheap mouse buttons; No docking station connector

Overall, the HP ProBook 5330m is still a decent and above all good looking subnotebook. Regrettably, HP gives up points thoughtlessly. The HP ProBook 5330m could have done considerably better if HP had just used a better display. The elementary...

HP ProBook 5330m-LJ463UT Laptop Review


Tough business. The 5330m packs a standard voltage Sandy Bridge Core i5 CPU with a healthy amount of security software, all wrapped in a 13.3-inch magnesium alloy case. See how the features stack up and if this notebook is a worthy successor to the...

Tough chassis; Good CPU performance; Quiet keyboard; Low fan noise (if not stressed)

Mediocre screen quality; Low battery life; Rubbery Touchkeys; Outdoor use could be difficult

The HP 5330m comes with better than expected security software for business users or anyone with sensitive data

HP ProBook 5330m


The redesigned HP ProBook 5330m is meant to be a stylish rethinking of business laptops. We've heard that before. In the case of this ProBook, it hits the basics but is not really that much of a reinvention.

Compact and solidly-built, the HP ProBook 5330m is a cleanly made 13-inch business laptop with up-to-date processor specs and a glare-free matte screen

A spare design and underperforming battery may disappoint road warriors, and it lacks USB 3.0. The Beats Audio improves headphone listening, but speakers still sound middling

HP ProBook 5330m Review


The new HP ProBook 5330m looks like the perfect solution for businesses and consumers looking for a powerful, aluminum-wrapped laptop for work and play for less than the price of a MacBook Pro. Is it possible to find a lust-worthy business laptop for...

Excellent build quality ; Solid performance in its class ; Good backlit keyboard

Limited configuration options ; Gets warmer than expected ; Good, but not great battery life

At the end of the work day, the HP ProBook 5330m is the kind of business laptop you'll be happy to take home. For just $799 or $899 you get a well-equipped notebook with extremely durable construction, good performance an a nice keyboard with LED...

HP ProBook 5330m


Ultraportable business laptops are as much a part of a business traveler's life as comfortable suits and airline tickets. Like their consumer counterparts, these small laptops are compact enough to fit in most bags and light enough to carry without...

Versatile matte display ; Durable chassis ; Robust suite of security software ; Great performance

Heavy ; Poor battery life ; Can run warm

While slightly more expensive than some other laptops, and handicapped by poor battery life, the HP ProBook 5330m offers a solid combination of hardware and supports it with robust security software.

HP ProBook 5330m: A No-Frills Business Laptop


Sometimes you need to buy a boatload of laptops for your staff when they need mobile PCs. HP is hoping its low-cost ProBook 5330m business laptop lineup will fit the bill. Here we look at the $799 version, which strips out some features to hit that low...

Has a very good, matte-finish LCD panel ; Excellent keyboard

No USB 3.0 support ; Lacks built-in optical drive

The ProBook 5330m is a low-cost, attractive business laptop with a great keyboard but few amenities.

HP ProBook 5330m review


We always have to chuckle when laptop makers talk about making business systems look more palatable to the employees toting 'em. After all, it's not

Solid build quality ; Good performance / security specs for the price ; Includes a 3G radio

4-cell battery doesn't last long on a charge ; No extended battery option ; Occasionally stiff keyboard

HP ProBook 5330m Review


The HP ProBook 5330m has many things going for it: strong performance, great looks, awesome audio, strong wireless scores, and best-in-class bundled software in HP Protect Tools. Unfortunately, this laptop's short battery life is a serious drawback for...

Sleek design, Solid performance, Quality audio, Accurate low-light webcam

Below-average battery life, Uncomfortable keyboard, Heavier than 13-inch competitors

HP ProBook 5330M


Measuring a compact 0.99 by 12.91 by 8.86 inches (HWD) and weighing only 3.99 pounds, the ProBook 5330M is easily carried in a laptop bag. The 13.3-inch screen has a resolution of 1,366 by 768, ideal for reading documents, viewing photos, and enjoying...

Attractive chassis, keyboard. Robust security options

Runs hot. Includes no optical drive. Graphics capability is limited

The components and design of the HP ProBook 5330M are aimed at business users, but the laptop maintains an aurora of elegance.

HP ProBook 5330M


If only all trickle-down schemes worked this beautifully. With its sleek lines and thin, two-tone brushed-aluminum chassis, the HP ProBook 5330M has adopted the executive-chic aesthetic of its enterprise-laptop big brother, the EliteBook, and, boy,...

Solid, striking metal chassis ; Moderate price ; Fine productivity-apps speed ; Better-than-average sound

Short battery life ; No USB 3.0 port ; No optical drive

Straddling small-business and enterprise laptops, this ProBook offers solid performance and high style at a very low price. Still, it's missing a few key elements, so know what you're getting—and not—before buying.
