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?
