Summary: I bought this for work. I've had this for about 3 weeks and use it about 5 days a week. It has great battery life, at least for me since I don't use sound and I keep the screen dimmed, the battery lasts at least 7 hours. The SSD memory is super fast, it boots up very quickly. I love Windows 7 since I upgraded from XP, what a difference. The laptop is thin and light and everything I was looking for.
Just received the ProBook 430 G1 a couple of days ...

Summary: Just received the ProBook 430 G1 a couple of days ago, and I'm loving it! Looks classy, is lightweight, and is fast (thanks to the SSD). I had noticed some user reviews talking about wi-fi connectivity problems, but I haven't noticed any issues yet. Need to mention here that the texture of the lid of the laptop attracts smudge marks real quick.
Summary: It is just about perfect for my needs. It is fast, quiet and has an extremely long battery life for a full featured Windows machine, roughly 7 hours. If it has a flaw, and I would reaching for straws, and say the screen is very reflective in certain light situations. I am glad I found it.
Summary: I LOVE this computer. I've had it for about two weeks ... boots in less than 30 seconds, lightening fast processor, the solid state drive is amazing! The 13.3 inch size is perfect ... my old computer was 11-inch and this larger size is much better. Light as a feather, so far just a wonderful computer. VERY happy with this purchase!
also a pro notebook without some keyboard lighting is stupid. overall

Summary: no idea why, but slow as f**k. after a month the air fan growls, making working on it almost a disgrace.. if i could give it back, i would, and go back to lenovo. according to resource monitor, neither ram nor CPU are used up, still sooooo slow, and that after 1 month of using it. why would any company sell such a slow machine? also a pro notebook without some keyboard lighting is stupid. overall, my third and last HP. Am going back to lenovo.
