  • The HP ProBook 4530s office notebook leaves an altogether good overall impression. The numerous configurations, as well as the impressive case refresh, and the good stability, are only some of the positive aspects in this respect. Also the easy upgrade possibilities, as well as the selection of interfaces, and the input devices, are additions to the included advantages. In comparison to these what's missing is a longer warranty period as standard, as well as a standard display with better characteristics.


  • An attractive brushed-metal design, good ergonomics, and strong security make the HP ProBook 4530s our favorite 15-inch laptop for small businesses.


  • The HP ProBook is a sturdy, versatile laptop that will suit anyone who needs something portable and powerful. Its slight build belies the fact that the ProBook is as rugged as they come and can withstand a bit of rough treatment. If you plan on using this laptop a lot and are prone to the odd attack of the clumsies then the HP ProBook 4530s will be right up your street.


  • HP's Elitebook 2570p has the same strengths and weaknesses as the predecessor. Our main point of criticism remains the display - even though it is now slightly brighter, it is still too dark and consequently mobility (outdoor use) suffers.

    Plus points are the very comfortable keyboard and the touchpad/point stick combination. Build quality, sturdiness, port selection, and security features all support the status of the little Elitebook as a serious business laptop.


  • The HP EliteBook 2570p combines long battery life with a rock-solid design and smart software, making it a compelling business ultraportable.


  • The EliteBook 2570p may be chunky, but with good reason - the business market it's aimed at requires all the ports it can get, and a certain level of ruggedness. Add to this the impressive performance of the 12.5-inch laptop, and you have a laptop that would make the hardened business road warrior happy.


  • The HP Envy Spectre XT (13-2050 nr) is a solid ultrabook with a stylish design, but its appeal is marred by a so-so clickpad and display.

  • Rating Unavailable

    The HP Envy Spectre XT is a solid contender, with a comfortable keyboard and touchpad, an attractive design and top-notch performance. The one downside is less-than-stellar battery life.


  • A high-end laptop at a mainstream price, the HP Envy Spectre XT gets much of the look and feel right, with only a few missteps.


  • The HP EliteBook 2170p is a well-designed business ultraportable with a terrific keyboard and a solidly resilient chassis, and its reasonable priced and good feature set make it worthy of consideration.


  • Initially we asked the question: how should a mini EliteBook look, adhering to the quality standard of the series? Half of this and half of that would be the answer. Case, input devices, and run times meet the high expectations. What amazes us: after the throttling problems of the 14-inch sister model 8460p (2011) now even the smallest member of the series comes without any such performance losses.

    Performance is perhaps the right topic to at least partially justify the high price of the EliteBook.


  • The HP Elitebook 2170p is a light and durable business notebook with above-average battery life, but its small touchpad makes it tough to execute Windows 8 gestures.
