Business types take notice, HP has a new line of notebooks that will not impress your associates with a radical design, but should get the job done. The ProBook S-Series combines modern specs with good, clean lines at affordable prices. Kind of like what the Lenovo/IBM ThinkPads have been doing for years- well, except for the affordable part.
A 14.1-, 15.6-, and 17.3-inch are all available in the S-Series line with the larger options sporting a numeric keypad. The trio includes an optional Blu-ray drive, HDMI-out, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 GPU, and the option of either an AMD or Intel CPU. Plus, customers can choose from either Windows Vista or Linux operating systems. (No XP love?)
Specific model pricing and availability hasn’t been released just, but we do know the base price will start out at $529 and will be available early summer ’09.
