"This laptop has a nice small and mobile look, so points for hitting to the right size range and especially for the rigid aluminium frame, but that said, touchpad is a big minus for looking like cheap one and working the same way.
There is no additional graphics-card, so it's not a gaming laptop, but with i5 2520 it has enough firepower for some older FPS- / MMO-games. But the graphics benchmarks got a tear from me, when I first saw them. On the other hand, no space wasted as everything is integrated in i5-series processor. Having both VGA & HDMI connectors is a great addition, specially when you dont know what connectors are in customers projector.
SSD is fast for everything that are needed for normal work and Power eSATA-connector gives boost to handling larger data. Integrated 3G-modem is a plus, but sadly it lacks support for older mobile networks and therefore limits connectivity on certain areas. WLAN is a 2.4Ghz & 5Ghz at 802.11n speeds, so it's fast enough for everything that you want to do wirelessly.
HP Software package is pretty much "everything stuffed inside"-package, but many of them are kinda useful.
I count security features as a big plus, for example fingerprint, face recognition and/or bluetooth authentication and full disk encryption if required."

Review 2 for HP ProBook 5330m Notebook PC
New and good
Date:May 10, 2011
"Good laptop. Good idea with illuminated keyboard. Ugly keyboard... Looks cheap. Please move the AC/DC adapter connector in the laptop's right side (left side viewed from front). Same problem with other cables. A better quality display will be appreciated."
