Reviews for the HP ProBook 4530s-LH306EA

87% HP ProBook 4530s review
Source: It Pro English
It can’t match the extensive connectivity of some of its competitors, but the ProBook 4530s is still an excellent business laptop. Beyond the eye-pleasing styling, it has solid performance at a mid-range price. The superb keyboard makes it a joy to use and battery life is above what we would expect. If you don’t mind losing a few ports, it’s a great all-round business machine.

The device weighs in at 2.5kg, which is pretty impressive considering it measures 374 x 256 x 28.7mm. It would make a good desktop replacement system, but mobile road warriors would require something less bulky. The 4530s is a well-specified laptop for the price, and light for its size. It is quite bulky, and would be better as a desktop replacement system, than as a road warrior's system.
