HP has unveiled the ProBook series of laptops, the 15-inch 4510s and 4515s, and the larger 4710s. All of them include a numeric keypad, if that's important to you in a laptop, and are designed to be recyclable. So you'll feel okay about yourself when you ditch them for a Mac.
Only kidding, folks! There are two 15.6-inch models, the ProBook 4510s with Intel inside, and the ProBook 4515s with interior decoration by AMD. Both sport 16:9 widescreen, high-definition, LED-backlit displays, HDMI and the aforementioned numeric keypads. As well as standard Wi-Fi, you can add mobile broadband and Bluetooth.
Next up is a 17.3-inch model, the ProBook 4710s, above, with an ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 graphics chip and up to 512MB of GDDR2 for video memory. It packs Intel Core 2 Duo processors.
In a first for its business models, Linux is offered as a pre-installed option as well as Windows. HP has also announced the Intel-packing 4410s AMD-powered 4415s today. HP told Crave these 14-inch models will cross the pond sometime soon.
