HP ProBook 4730s?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,
Now I need a new company laptop and I have a few of these on order for some clients and just wanted to ask the fine folk of OCN a few questions about these ProBook laptops.

1: Are they as well built as Toshiba Satillite Pros because these are what I usually get people but my supplier has moved to HP.
2: Have any of ye used 17'' laptops on full flights in cattle class?

Thats pretty much it, also what do the people in the laptop trade feel is a good trade price for these PM welcome if you don't want to disclose pricing info.

From what I've experienced, HP builds pretty solid laptops; I've had friends using HPs for 3~4 years and they still run as good as new (sure leaves Dell's in the dust). They've been upping their game recently, as well, so I think you'll do fine going with HP.

And in terms of using a 17'' in economy section... I'm not sure if it'll be the best in terms of comfort, but I figure it can't be the worst either. I guess it just depends on the size of the people sitting next to ya.

I went for the 15.6'' in the end. I rack up quite a bit of air miles an have a 23'' screen at the office/home so its okay. I might do a review when I get it.
Thanks for your input Zipnogg
