This is not a cheap 13in notebook, but it is one whose standards of build quality and internal components are a step above most consumer laptops. An admirable condensation of high performance, long battery life and upmarket construction lets the HP ProBook 5320m stand apart from the pack.

The ProBook 5320m benefits from a solid and good-looking chassis, with a highly-usable keyboard and trackpad. It also comes with decent core specifications, allowing it to be used for a multitude of business-related tasks. However, its portable nature is let down by its relatively poor battery life, which makes it unsuited to business users who are frequently on the road.

As we've come to expect from HP's ProBook range, the 13.3in 5320m is an attractive and well-built machine offering decent value when you consider its high-end specifications. However, compared to some rivals it doesn't do enough to take pole position.

HP's ProBook 5320m isn't perfect. We wish the screen was brighter and the touchpad buttons felt more responsive. We can forgive these faults though, since the 5320m has long battery life, a comfortable keyboard and fast applications performance all at a surprisingly reasonable price. It's a good value ultra-portable laptop.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 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.

There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.
The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
HP: Founded in 1939, the US company is a major server and printer manufacturer and one of the leading IT companies in the world. Until 2015, the company was called Hewlett-Packard Company. After a split, the computer division was renamed HP Inc.
In 2023, HP had an approximate market share of 22% of global PC sales, making it number 2 after Lenovo.
80%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
