Because of its size and weight, the 15.6in ProBook should be considered only if you want a desktop replacement-style notebook that you'll rarely have to take on the road with you. It's quite heavy, it doesn't have USB 3.0, it doesn't make use of switchable graphics and it could use better input devices, as well as 64-bit Windows by default.

87% Review HP ProBook 6560b Notebook | Notebookcheck
Heavy metal reloaded. The ProBook 6560 LG658EA is an entry level business device from Hewlett Packard in a robust aluminum case. In addition to its high-end looks, the installed hardware is also impressive: a dual core CPU from Intel's second generation processors, dedicated AMD graphics and a 15.6 inch matt display with a high resolution. Price: about 900 euros.
