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 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

HP ProBook 5330m Review


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.

Taken on its own, the HP ProBook 5330m seems like a reasonable laptop. Business travelers will be pleased by the sturdy construction, matte display and excellent performance

HP ProBook 5330M


The HP ProBook 5330M merges business-friendly features with an extra dose elegance.

Attractive chassis, keyboard. Robust security options.

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

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


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


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.

HP ProBook 5330m review


A powerful ultra-portable laptop with an excellent screen, but it suffers from poor battery life

Sharp, vibrant TFT screen ; Excellent Sandy Bridge performance ; Slim and solid build ; Reasonable speakers

Boxy design ; No dedicated graphics ; Poor battery life ; Keys occasionally don't register presses

Back in the day, business laptops were bulky, ugly crates that could splinter the spine of a fully-grown mountain bear. Thankfully that's all in the past, and now modern business portable PCs are not just slim and light, they're also surprisingly chic,...
