I picked up one of these HP Probooks after seeing my girlfriends, which was provided by her employer. The pictures don't do this machine any justice. This notebook features solid contruction and a nice sleek brushed aluminum finish. I am in the gaming pc profession and needed a reliable notebook for after office tasks. The HP Probook has been a great product so far. I removed the stock hard drive and replaced it with a 128gb Samsung solid state drive with transfer kit (Norton Ghost). As expected the performance increase is simply remarkable. With the SSD installed, you would think i purchased a top of the line Core i7 series notebook. With the SSD purchased here from Amazon ($149) my total investment was $648. If you are handy with computers this model has incredible potential for performance and the looks to match. Bravo job HP!

The only con I see is the amount of bloatware that HP installs at the factory. It took me about 4 hours to remove the optional non necessary programs but for the price, it is still worth it. Also, even without the SSD upgrade, this machine is still very capable in its stock configuration. It is expandible from 4GB of RAM up to 8GB. There are no fingerprint readers or other security devices built in. The HP software suite offers a trial version of Norton Security, I removed that immediately and installed the always free "Microsoft Security Essentials" which I find quite adequate (plus i'm cheap).

If you are interested, here is the SSD I used that includes Norton Ghost so you can backup the existing hard drive and transfer it to the new SSD. Very easy to use.

I'm going to start by saying that in the past I never thought much
of HP computers and have purchased a few over the years. Pulled the
trigger on this one mainly because of the rave reviews on Tonymac forums
as I was interested in running osx on it along side windows 7.
I've had this about 24 hours now but was on it all night last night so here
are some of my immediate thoughts. Like the title says, excellent for
the money. Keyboard is full size and love the numeric pad on the right.
The brushed aluminum is an extremely nice touch and looks amazing.
As soon as I plugged it in I wiped the hard drive clean and installed Mac OSX
and Windows 7 to dual boot which it does very nicely. Powers up quickly.
The 4GB seems like plenty for most people. Machine performs really snappy
I like it alot. It's not too heavy so traveling with it daily or longer
would not be a problem. One major thing I noticed is that it runs very cool.
I've had three other laptops over the years and they all ran so hot that you
couldn't keep them on your lap. I've also seen more than my share of clients
machines come in with burned up processors, boards, and hard drives from the
excessive heat. Don't think you're gonna see that with these new processors
they run super cool. Now for the cons. The screen is thin. I have
already seen one in existence with pressure damage. The battery latches
are flimsy and I would suggest being really gentle if you remove the battery
to avoid snapping something. Same with the rear access cover. Thin and flimsy.
I ordered a sleeve to put the laptop in so that other stuff in my briefcase
doesn't damage the laptop banging off it. All in all I'd say this is a great
choice for someone who needs a work and play machine in one and at this price
it's a no brainer.

I bought this surprisingly inexpensive little powerhouse about a year ago. I did upgrade the memory to 8GB and I got an external hard drive for backups, but this little puppy still hums along quite nicely. I am a computational chemist and having multiple processors has proven handy as I can run small computational jobs on two or three processors and still surf the web or play video with no noticeable performance lags.

I have actually been disappointed by HP before. In particular, I found their pavillion line to be be under powered crap that breaks quite easily (for some reason, this was the only brand/model my parents would buy me as a teen and in college), so I was pretty skeptical about buying another HP product. I reasoned that since this was supposedly a business laptop, corporate customers wouldn't repeatedly buy the same crap they peddle to home users. That, the fact that this notebook got a lot of great reviews on another major online vendor convinced me and the relatively low price convinced me. I have been happier with this computer than any other I've owned except for one which I put together myself.

UPDATE:
I've been using this little guy for a bit over two years now. Last month I switched over to running Linux instead of Windows 7 and replaced the optical drive with a Samsung Electronics 840 EVO-Series 250GB 2.5-Inch SATA III Single Unit Version Internal Solid State Drive MZ-7TE250BW. I made the new SSD my boot drive and things blaze right along (total boot time is about 12 seconds). I have a Windows 7 virtual machine stored on the SSD and it boots up in about 30s. Still loving this computer.
