Reviews for the HP Compaq nc4200
The neutral looks, superb mouse buttons and Trackpoint controller of the HP Compaq tc4200 series will no doubt appeal to business users. This PV984ET model uses a fast 1.86GHz Pentium M processor with 512MB of DDR2 memory and a 60GB hard drive. While it’s priced at an attractive £1,175, it is clear HP Compaq hopes you will lay out extra cash on some accessories. There’s no optical drive supplied as standard, so you’ll require either a USB Multibay II or another external drive to make use of the recovery CDs or the versions of Sonic Recordnow 7 and Intervideo Windvd 5 – both are included in the software package.

The HP Compaq nc4200 Notebook PC has a great keyboard for any laptop--but especially for one that weighs only 3.9 pounds. Other attractive features include the external battery gauge, powered USB port, presentation button, and built-in Bluetooth. Apart from those elements, this business laptop is fairly spare. Unlike most other corporate portables these days, it has no optical drive, stereo sound, or FireWire port. It eschews a wide screen in favor of a standard-aspect 12.1-inch display. For the nc4200's $1549 price (as of 2/16/06), you can buy a different notebook with a much nicer screen, better speakers, and more connections.

For business travelers seeking a powerful ultraportable laptop, the $1,788 HP Compaq nc4200 is a contender with class. Its staid black case accommodates a decent-size screen and a comfortable keyboard, and it delivers enough battery life to get work done on the road. Still, it lacks a built-in DVD drive and business-friendly security features such as a fingerprint scanner or a Trusted Platform Module. For a more fully outfitted ultraportable, we recommend the more expensive ThinkPad X41. If an optical drive and security extras aren't critically important, the HP Compaq nc4200 provides a good balance of portability and power at a reasonable price.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
