The simpler ProBook s series have been redesigned with cues from the ProBook b series and EliteBook models, and now wear HP’s standard business notebook uniform, […]

The news is out, HP has just announced the addition of AMD’s brand new APUs (a combination of a traditional CPU and graphics processing unit) in some of their existing notebook models.
First a little about AMD Llano chips: they’re made as an answer to Intel’s Sandy Bridge processors. Made using the 32 nm process, they are available in dual and quad core variants that the system can dynamically and automatically scale and overclock when needed, what AMD calls Turbo […]

HP EliteBook 2560p vs ProBook 5330m: Cousin against cousin

ProBook 5330m vs EliteBook 2560p
I’m not sure if anyone else noticed but the release of the HP EliteBook 2560p and ProBook 5330m notebooks has certainly intrigued me, since the latter now is dressed like an EliteBook (not sure if actual build quality is the same though) and the EliteBook 2560p has downshifted to a 16:9 aspect ratio display, has a reshuffled right side of the keyboard that kicks away some important dedicated keys and seems to […]

Following Intel’s announcement that everything on notebooks will be ultra-low voltage beginning from their Ivy Bridge processors and their keynote this morning at Computex predicting ‘Ultrabooks’ (a creative new term coined by Intel for ultra-portable laptops with low power consumption) will fill about 40% of the market with Ivy Bridge powered, less than 0.8 inch thick, sub-$1000 laptop models by the end of next year, we’re looking at the possibility of […]

HP ProBook 5330m: when a ProBook goes on a diet and dresses up like a pricier EliteBook
Not wanting to be one-upped and left out by Lenovo and their rumored ThinkPad X1 ultra-thin laptop, HP has busted out the doors with their new ProBook 5330m ultra-thin business laptop. The ProBook 5330m appears to have a slight costume malfunction in the identity-crisis sense of the word as it carries HP’s ‘ProBook’ branding while at the same time, sports a design similar to […]

HP ProBook 5330m listed on HP's website
It’s been quite a while since the ultra-thin HP ProBook 5320m made its silent debut on HP Singapore’s website. And many have been curious about the fate of the ultra-thin ProBook 5000-series line after seemingly no news earlier this year with the debut of mainstream ProBook models and the EliteBook 8460p and 8560p.

HP ProBook 5320m
Earlier this month, HP quietly announced the ProBook 5320m in some of their region-specific websites (such as HP Singapore), successor to last year’s ‘thin and light’ ProBook 5310m business notebook. The HP ProBook 5320m is a fairly minor refresh, with the changes being a new body color (now in gold-silvery tone, versus the all-black 5310m) with new 2010 Core i-series processors dropped into its 0.93 inch thin aluminum + magnesium alloy chassis (the ProBook […]
