Reviews for the HP ProBook 4720s -XT947UT

80% HP ProBook 4720s delivers the goods
Source: Fudzilla English

HP’s ProBook 4720s delivers good performance in a stylish package at a very reasonable price tag. There’s really not much more one could ask for. Intel’s Core i3 380M is relatively fast and despite its 35W TDP rating, it’s pretty cool and doesn’t suck up too much power. AMD HD 6370 graphics are a good match for the CPU and the 17-inch matte screen doesn’t disappoint either.

HP’s ProBook 4720s delivers good performance in a stylish package at a very reasonable price tag. There’s really not much more one could ask for. Intel’s Core i3 380M is relatively fast and despite its 35W TDP rating, it’s pretty cool and doesn’t suck up too much power. AMD HD 6370 graphics are a good match for the CPU and the 17-inch matte screen doesn’t disappoint either. At just under 3kg, the 4720s is rather compact for a 17-inch laptop, especially if you factor in the 8-cell battery and the impressive battery life. We like the design as well, but most of all we love the affordable price tag. You would be hard pressed to find anything better in the €699 to €799 price range. The only major downside is the somewhat awkward and unconventional touchpad, but it’s heavily outweighed by the rest of the package. Basically, the ProBook 4720s just got under our skin. It managed to exceed our expectations and proved to be a very good product in its price range. We have no qualms about recommending it to anyone in need of a serious desktop replacement, at home, at work or anywhere else.

AMD Radeon HD 6370M: Renamed old HD 5470 with 80 shader processors and DirectX11 support.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


380M: The Core i3-380M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.53 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.30":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

3.3 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.

Up to 2015, the company was named Hewlett Packard Company. After a split, the computer range was renamed to HP Inc.

 

In the laptop segment, HP was the world's largest manufacturer from 2014 to 2016 with a market share of 20-21% from 2014 to 2016, but they only exceed Lenovo by a small margin as of recently. HP is not present in the smartphone sector (as of 2016).


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
