Reviews for the HP ProBook 4530s-XX968EA

84% Review HP ProBook 4530s Notebook | Notebookcheck
Down-to-earth. That's the best way to describe the new HP entry level business notebook. A new case design, solid construction, and up-to-date hardware, as well as a 15.6 inch display, are the most important prerequisites. Is the HP ProBook 4530s with a price tag of around 700 Euros (RRP) also good value for money?

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.


2.531 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.
