The HP ProBook is a sturdy, versatile laptop that will suit anyone who needs something portable and powerful. Its slight build belies the fact that the ProBook is as rugged as they come and can withstand a bit of rough treatment. If you plan on using this laptop a lot and are prone to the odd attack of the clumsies then the HP ProBook 4530s will be right up your street.

In this tumultuous economic summer of 2011, one thing's a sure bet: plenty of scrutiny of business budgets well into 2012. A small-business machine, this ProBook won’t win any speed races, but its component mix, security software, and nice chassis make it a smart buy for offices on a budget.

Battery life with the included 6-cell battery provides about 5 hours of battery life, which is slightly more than other similar notebooks.

The HP ProBook 4530s hits the sweet spot. At $729, it offers a durable and sleek brushed-aluminum design, solid security, and Core i5 power for a price that's right. We're not fans of the small arrow keys, and those who want discrete graphics will have to pay more. Overall, though, business users looking for a stylish but seriously powerful laptop need look no further.
