Personally, I’m not really a huge fan of HP, primarily because of the plain-looking design of their laptops. On the other hand, I can clearly see that most of the HP machines have that annoying audio in/out ports at the front side of the laptop, which makes it rather ugly and not user friendly.
However, HP has unveiled their latest ProBook s-series into the market and it features 14-inch 4410s and 4415s pack Intel / AMD processors.
The ProBook s-series also come with the following hardware specifications:
Optional Blu-ray drive
GMA X4500HD or ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330
On the other hand, the ProBook s-series also come with a much larger series, namely the 15.6-inch 4510s (Intel) and 4515s (AMD) and the gigantic 17.3 inch 4710s.
And as for the price, the ProBook s-series starts with $529 for the most basic configuration.
