This laptop really lives up to its description: ultra portability without sacrificing performance. I'm posting this review after a two week of ownership. Good bright display, Awesome aluminum design, bluetooth and keyboard. One open SO-DIMM slot for cheap expansion. Excellent hinges. Decent webcam and audio. Fingerprint scanner is great. Great battery life. Fast Sandy Bridge processor. USB 3.0 port removes the USB bottle neck from external devices. Great for external hard drives. 4 USB ports, more than usual in this form factor. Doesn't have a ton of blue LEDs everywhere to distract you. All leds are white or amber depending on status and aren't bright or annoying. Windows 7 Pro 64bit. The fan is quiet, and it won't set your lap on fire. Sturdy construction. Light and easy to manipulate with one hand. The biggest issue is the bloatware. You're going to want to do a reinstall right away (bcoz lots of HP unwanted software's)the other thing it has HDD with 4 Primary Partitions (Boot, C:drive, HP Recovery & HP Tools)means you are not able to shrink your C to create more logical partition and if you need more partitions you needs to reinstall and by using HP's restore partition you'll just end up right where you started. Going to contact HP support for getting installation media to reinstall my machine according as per my wish with Hard disk Partitions. Except this this machine is really fast and great

Product Overview

Stylish performance. Watch, present, video conference, and multitask on this durable, stylish notebook. This versatile and secure HP ProBook boasts a 15.6-inch diagonal HD monitor to make an impression in and out of the office.

Durable metal design and options
Ideal for small- and medium-size businesses, the HP ProBook s-series balances functionality with style and affordability. Durability starts with high-strength precision-formed aluminum that is deeply anodized to create a rich, smudge- and wear-resistant HP DuraFinish in a stylish metallic silver color. And you can choose between two easy-to-view 14.0- or 15.6-inch diagonal HD displays for the configuration that best suits your needs.

Complete set of security features
From preboot BIOS authentication to password management with credential manager and drive encryption, HP provides a complete security tool to support users’ needs. HP ProtectTools is easy to use, robust, and can be centrally managed. Plus, the HP Fingerprint Sensor and optional HP Face Recognition make it easy to log in to your PC.

Powerful connections
With integrated WWAN and HP Connection Manager, you can be connected in more places business takes you. With the 6-cell and optional 9-cell (4530s only) batteries and HP Power Assistant you gain great battery run time in a truly mobile experience. The new USB 3.0 connector lets you share and transfer files faster than the previous USB 2.0 connector version.

Advanced multimedia support
The notebook comes loaded with the new ArcSoft TotalMedia Suite that allows you to play, edit, and create video and audio files. Experience life in high-definition1 with the HDMI port that allows you to connect directly to high-definition displays. SRS Premium Sound seamlessly reduces background noise during video conferencing with the optional HD Webcam1 and dramatically improves the sound coming from your speakers or headphones.

Incredible performance
The new Intel architecture features 2nd generation Intel Core i7 i5 and i3 dual- and quad-core processors and Intel Celeron processors. Whether you’re creating or consuming content, you gain the power to quickly edit, transfer, and share content without being tied down to a desk.

Built to simplify
With HP QuickWeb you can tap into fast, convenient and more secure access to the Internet, email, contacts, and calendar at the touch of a button without long boot-up times. HP QuickWeb also delivers strong security for business needs via mail encryption and enhances user authentication with support for passwords and biometrics.
