Some Eye Catching Features of HP ProBook 5330m
Built for HD but no cake for Gamers
Having backlit keyboard adds to the advantages of the device but keys are little bit slippery causing reduction in typing speed. With its strong internal muscles including Intel i5 processor, device is extremely good performer when it comes to business tasks. Integrated Intel chips make it easier to play HD videos but sadly do not support gaming.
Excellent Wireless Connectivity
Removable battery and Wi-Fi compatibility offers best business solution for portability. However, battery life of the device is not worth appreciating. ProBook 5330m comes with built-in 3G modem that allows access to the mobile internet. This facility is restricted with carriers in US.
Integrated Security and Instant-On
With HP’s Slapshot OS based Instant-On feature, it’s possible to boot laptop in 15 seconds to carry out little surfing over Internet. Security needs for any sized business are always high and with ProBook, HP has taken care of it. HP’s ProtectTools suite help user store passwords erase file securely. It also permits encryption to secure data from threats like Trojan horse.
