The HP Probook 4710s is a 17" screened laptop with a fast intel core 2 duo 2Ghz chip, and 3GB of RAM, and running Windows 7.
I bought this laptop as I needed a laptop useable for regular office work, so needing a decent sized screen and number pad on the keyboard - which it has due to the widescreen width of the laptop.
In terms of spec and the software HP provide on the machine, it is ready to go simply out of the box, wifi connectivity is easy with a walkthrough, and the quality of connection is good.
Using it day to day, which I do primarily for work, is a pleasure and isn't too tiring, so can serve as a replacement for a desktop if you need the space.
Battery life is excellent with HP optimized battery manager, and you could easily work on it for over 4 hours just on the battery, which is a massive improvement on my old Dell.
Connctivity is good with HD slot, SD card reader as well as 4 USB2 connections, VGA and a DVD R/RW drive.
Screen resolution is excellent and watching video or graphics is fine.
It has a sleek black case and looks great, the only downside is it is fairly heavy and bulky, but is well made and robust.
For the price, just over £500 for me, it is a great specced laptop that will stand the test of time.
