Conclusion: Above all the low entry-level price of just over 400.- Euro (depending on variant) makes the HP ProBook 4510s and respectively the 4515s very interesting as well as in the first instance the option of a matte and fit-for-work display , which in these price regions is only rarely to be found. It's all the more disappointing that only the glare version is currently offered in the low-price models.
Pros: Acceptable port facilities, Gigabit LAN and Bluetooth ex works, HSPA broadband internet optionally available, Generous keyboard with separate numberpad, QuickLook function, Very bright display, matte variant available, Reasonable battery life of 3-4 hours, The price. With just more than 450.- Euro you're there. However the HP ProBook is far removed from a classic business laptop.
Cons: Case is very susceptible to dirt, A basic warranty of only a year, an upgrade incurs an additional charge, Keyboard is difficult to clean, Low viewing angle stability of the glare display, Fan is clearly audible even without a load, The equally obtainable matte display variant, yet exclusively available in the higher-priced configuration variants.
Conclusion: The price is reasonable and HP includes reliability extras - hard-disk impact protection, disk encryption - that not all laptop makers offer. As for functionality, the 4510s does the job for all but the most media-intensive tasks.
Excerpt: One of the bigger trends in laptops over the past year or two has been the growth of small business notebooks. Many manufacturers have started to segment their business products between those designed for large business and small/home businesses in order to better address the demands of each. Small business notebooks, generally speaking, have been dropping expensive enterprise features, as well as focusing more on versatility and keeping costs down.
Summary: As the flagship model of HP's new budget-friendly business line, the $699 ProBook 4510s is an attractive, durable machine with good productivity performance and a variety of security features. We also suggest considering the Lenovo ThinkPad SL400 ; for $639 you'll get similar specs and performance, albeit a smaller hard drive and screen. But when it comes to affordable 15-inch business notebooks, the HP ProBook is strong choice.
Pros: Polished design, Above-average battery life, Bright 16:9 display with good viewing angles, Durability and security features, Comfortable keyboard with number pad
Cons: Awkward touch buttons, No fingerprint reader

Excerpt: Описание Большое количество глянцевых элементов делают HP ProBook 4510s совершенно непохожим на те модели, которые мы привыкли относить к корпоративному сегменту. Маркое и непрактичное, но в то же время стильное покрытие использовано в области клавиатуры и на всех панелях верхней крышки включая рамку вокруг дисплея. Выбирая ноутбук с глянцевым корпусом, не стоит забывать о том, что он требует постоянного ухода и бережного отношения.
