Summary: there are many wonderful sides to this product: 1. Al finish for easy maintenance and classy look 2. High performance PC in spite of the heavy HP management suite. I5 processor and 4GB RAM help towards that tremendously. PC hasn't been used for hard core gaming, though.
Summary: It is exactly what I was looking for. I used it at work and it works quite fast and also it has all the disk capacity I need. I plugged on it a bigger monitor, my printer, a wireless keybord and mouse, and the scanner too. Besides it occupies very little space and it's really light.
Great but one seemingly minor, but serious design issue

Summary: I've been using the computer for a week. So far it serves most of my needs well: fast, portable, decent battery, etc. My biggest issue is the up/down arrow buttons to move the cursor. To configure the keys into a nice compact rectangle, the designer made these buttons really small, i.e.
Summary: I am the kind of person that knows exactly what it wants on a laptop. I was looking for an especific set of features and when this laptop came into the radar I research it extensively before purchase.
Summary: Desde Costa Rica: La HP ProBook es perfecta, la 4430s cumple con las funciones de Vitualizacion y bases de datos que son las funciones que le tengo. La relacion precio-calidad es incomparable con equipos de otras marcas. Excelente diseno en aluminio cepillado, peso razonable.
Summary: It is a bang for the price. Holds charge for 4-5 hours in ms office or 3-4 hours watching hd movie. Design is nice and laptop is thinner when i thought. New core-i3 is enough for all my task (which exclude gaming). Speakers are on average loudness and quality level.
Summary: Good budget laptop - low probook status, half aluminum - half plastic - great screen, keyboard - tho sometimes glitchy requiring a reboot. wi-fi sucks - older samsung laptop next to me gets solid strength when i get crap. battery lasts a long time multi tasking.
Summary: I originally wanted to get a Mac, but I did not want to spend as much as I would have had to in order to buy one. I feel like this is a nice low-cost alternative. I have been using this laptop for about the past 6 months, and it has held up very well! I feel like the design is very sleek.
Summary: I really disliked this laptop when I first got it. It was so different than the larger laptop I was used to. It's difficult at first to type on because the touch pad is extremely sensitive. You can turn the touchpad off and use a regular mouse by double tapping the top left corner of the touchpad.
