The HP ProBook 4525s has some great features and performs well, and we could have genuinely recommended it. However, the touchpad is one of the worst we have experienced and raised our blood pressure considerably

HP reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

ATI Radeon HD 4250: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) for AMD processors with Avivo HD support and technically a higher clocked HD 4200.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 530v: Renamed HD 4350 graphics card and therefore an entry level GPU with DirectX 10.1 support.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


AMD Athlon II:

P320: Entry level dual core processor for 13"+ laptops featuring a DDR3 memory controller.

P340: Entry level dual core processor for 13"+ laptops featuring a DDR3 memory controller.


15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.5 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

4.3 kg:

This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


61.33%: Such a bad rating is rare. There exist hardly any notebooks, which are rated worse.
