Key Features:

Stylish Durable Design: Protect your notebook from the rigors of mobile work environments with the new metal design and dress it up with sophisticated color options (caviar and bourdeaux). With a 15.6-inch diagonal display, the HP ProBook 4520s supports optional discrete graphics with 512 MB DDR3 memory and features an HDMI output as well as preloaded multimedia software with one-touch button support. The keyboard layout enhances the streamlined notebook design, while the full-size keyboard with integrated numeric keypad allows you to type comfortably.

Instant Access – No Boot Up: Use HP QuickLook 3 to access email, calendar, task and contact information in seconds without booting up and HP QuickWeb to access the web in seconds, even if your notebook is turned off.

Advanced Multi-Media Support: With a choice of discrete graphics, the HP ProBook 4320s comes loaded with the new ArcSoft TotalMedia Suite that allows you to play, edit and create video and audio files. New “multi-media controls” for video control such as play, rewind, fast-forward are now integrated into keyboard, simplifying work with video and audio files. And experience life in high-definition with the HDMI port that allows you to connect directly to high-definition displays.

Built to conserve: HP Power Assistant lets you take control with total visibility over your notebook’s reported power consumption! This easy-to-use tool allows you to conserve power, stretch battery run-time, accurately monitor your reported power needs and report workforce power consumption.

Built to protect: The new spill-resistant keyboard with drains helps protect sensitive electronics and key components from minor spills. And HP 3D DriveGuard helps protect your notebook’s hard drive against impact or drops using a three-axis accelerometer which detects any sudden movement and initiates protective action, so your critical information is protected.

Flexible Battery Solutions: The HP ProBook 4520s Notebook PCs includes multiple battery solutions to help you manage your battery power needs — from lightweight configurations to extended battery power for longer computing. Choose either the 6-cell Li-Ion battery (47WHr) for lighter weight or the HP 9-cell Li-Ion Primary Battery (93 WHr) for extended battery life.
