Bulk'o'media. A large, glare-free screen fused with solid workmanship and good application performance plus a midrange graphics card from AMD for the occasional game and business-ambitioned input devices. Will the ProBook accomplish the balancing act between business and multimedia?

17.3: Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.
