HP Probook 5330m Review — Business and Beats Sounds Good
9 December 2011
Excerpt: The HP ProBook 5330m is a business notebook, but if you didn’t know that, you might confuse it for a very nice consumer notebook thanks to a number of user-friendly features. Unlike many business notebooks, the HP ProBook 5330m has backlit keys, good Beats Audio and a premium on looks. Pros A durable frame with good looks wraps up a decently powerful notebook with features like Beats Audio, backlit keys, enhanced security options, pay as you go 3G and good performance.
Excerpt: Straddling small-business and enterprise laptops, this ProBook offers solid performance and high style at a very low price. Still, it's missing a few key elements, so know what you're getting—and not—before buying.
Pros: Solid, striking metal chassis, Moderate price, Fine productivity-apps speed, Better-than-average sound
Cons: Short battery life, No USB 3.0 port, No optical drive
Summary: The HP ProBook 5330m has many things going for it: strong performance, great looks, awesome audio, strong wireless scores, and best-in-class bundled software in HP Protect Tools. Unfortunately, this laptop's short battery life is a serious drawback for a notebook this size. Small business users should also consider the ThinkPad Edge E220s, which provides a better keyboard and lighter chassis, or the Toshiba Portege R835, which has more than 2 hours of additional battery...
Pros: Sleek design, Solid performance, Quality audio, Accurate low-light webcam
Cons: Below-average battery life, Uncomfortable keyboard, Heavier than 13-inch competitors

Summary: We think that the 13.3in ProBook 5330m is a very good notebook overall, thanks to its solid build quality, decent performance, backlit keyboard and useful security features. However, its battery life is too short and it lacks USB 3.0.
Excerpt: Back in the day, business laptops were bulky, ugly crates that could splinter the spine of a fully-grown mountain bear. Thankfully that's all in the past, and now modern business portable PCs are not just slim and light, they're also surprisingly chic, appealing to the average consumer as well as suited and booted execs.
Conclusion: El HP ProBook 5330m es un equipo más que interesante para profesionales y empresas . Su rendimiento sobresaliente, un diseño alejado del tradicional equipo corporativo e interesantes características adicionales como su alianza con Beats Audio lo convierten por poco más de 800 euros (la versión con SSD ronda los 1.100) en uno de los portátiles preferidos del mundo corporativo.
