  • Summary: Business Sale? HP is selling their no longer new ProBook 4530s for prices significantly lower than 500 Euros (~$651). Through utilizing their cash-back offer the current price is reduced to 398 Euros (~$518). Our test reveals whether or not this is an opportunity to take advantage of.
  • Pros: Cheap price, Good keyboard, Good screen, Comprehensive warranty options available, Windows 8 upgrade for free, The case, the display, the good keyboard
  • Cons: Comes with only a 12 month warranty, Fan runs constantly at an audible level, A quieter fan.

HP ProBook 4530s review

  • Summary: When we first came across this laptop late last year it cost around £100 more than it does now. Back then we thought it was sturdy and versatile. We hold to that, although we should note that the build isn’t what many might first expect.

  • Conclusion: Given this laptop's $729 price, however, adding one of these warranty upgrades might still keep you safely within your budget. The lack of high-speed USB 3.0 or eSATA ports might be a deal-killer for some users, but for most business users looking for a mobile office-mate, the HP ProBook 4530s gets...
  • Pros: Sturdy, stylish metal chassis, Affordable price, Competitive performance, Includes strong proprietary software
  • Cons: Only one-year warranty, No USB 3.0, eSATA ports, Weak audio output

  • Cons: Meager accessories, Only 12 months warranty, Average display characteristics, Cooling constantly active (idle) and loud under load, A standard 24 month warranty with Pick-Up & Return service, as well as a better display as standard.

LAPTOP Magazine
25 May 2011
  • Summary: The HP ProBook 4530s hits the sweet spot. At $729, it offers a durable and sleek brushed-aluminum design, solid security, and Core i5 power for a price that's right. We're not fans of the small arrow keys, and those who want discrete graphics will have to pay more.

  • Excerpt: HP’s ProBook range sits between the business-focused EliteBook series and the more consumer oriented Pavilion laptops. The 4530s is a good example: its brushed-metal finish, simple yet sleek design and high performance components won’t look out of place in the boardroom, but the dedicated graphics...

  • Summary: The 4530s is a well-specified laptop for the price, and light for its size. It is quite bulky, and would be better as a desktop replacement system, than as a road warrior's system.
  • Pros: Ability to switch graphics processors to specific applications or power state.
  • Cons: No USB 3.0 or eSata ports
