Bad display

AReader, Amazon
1 February 2011
  • Summary: I just bought a 4720 ProBook. The display is not nearly as good as the 6 year old Compaq laptop it was intended to replace. The colors are washed out, and increasing or decreasing the brightness doesn't help. Also, looking at the screen and moving side to side, the image is OK. But if you change the angle of the screen even slightly, i.e. slightly open or close the lid, the image becomes too dark or too light.

Businss but personal use ready

  • Summary: This laptop was excellent from the start then it started to give problems with the OS. It's light and compact for a 17" laptop. The raised keyboard makes cleaning easier. The combo function keys means you don't have an overtly cluttered keyboard. The laptop can be used readily by a business or home user. Windows 7 may seem as the right companion OS for this laptop. Windows 7 starts up faster than Vista and performs even better at first.

Decent Laptop, Terrible mouse.

R. Siegel, Amazon

  • Summary: This laptop is almost awesome, except for one crucial problem: the touchpad. It is so bad it makes the laptop almost unusable without an external mouse. The touchpad is a BAD knockoff of the apple touchpad from their macbookpro line. The HP/Synaptics touchpad on this model of laptop allows for multi-touch gestures, though scrolling is the only one that seems to work. Despite this multi-touch ability they did not enable two-finger touch to be a right-click.

ingombrante e poco versatile

  • Summary: ho usato questo computer in ufficio per svolgere lavori semplici di segretariato. esteticamente la macchina si presenta nero satinata con uno schermo di 16 pollici mi sembra che siano. la tastiera è nera anch'essa satinata. lè stato pagato 700 eruo ma credo che ne valga un pò meno. ultima generazione i7 windows a fronte di una macchina che potrebbe fare sicuramente di più.
  • Pros: macchina solida
  • Cons: pc limitato

  • Excerpt: У меня через неделю использования сдох HDD. Вернул деньги, потратил кучу времени, повезло, что в хорошем магазине покупал и с возвратом не возникло проблем. Никому не советую брать эту модель.
  • Pros: Хорошо сделан, отлично выглядит, правильная вентиляция, можно держать на коленях. Не греется практически. Ну и матовый экран, безусловно.
  • Cons: В данной модели установлен HDD производсва Toshiba, со всеми вытекающими: "Специфическая болезнь Toshiba – заклинивание оси двигателя из-за неисправности жидкостного подшипника. Самая частая причина поломок - разрушительное воздействие времени. Крышка, которая закрывает ось в HDD от Toshiba, тонкая и часто деформируется. Через мелкие зазоры в ней испаряется смазка подшипника. Постепенно трение усиливается, во втулке появляются заусенцы, и, наконец, в один прекрасный д...
