HP Probook

January 8, 2012

Earlier this week I came across a deal I couldn’t pass on. It was a HP Probook 4320s, 2010 edition from Multitronic.

It’s a 13,3″ HP business laptop with an Intel i3 370m processor @ 2,4Ghz, 2GB DDR3 RAM and a 250GB harddrive for a modest price of 390€ (Retails at ~580€), I knew it was a EOL product but I need a new laptop and I felt this was priced at the right point.

I’ve had it now for a week and the only complaint I have is HP’s integrated software, specifically HP ProtectTools, which prolonged the boot time with approx. 2 minutes. Trying to uninstall the product ended in a non-functional Windows install, so even though I didn’t want to, I ended up installing a clean Windows install from discs I have from earlier.

But disregarding the software, I really like this laptop, it weighs in at 2KG and has a brushed aluminium shell which is really nice in itself but it attracts fingerprints like there’s no tomorrow.
