The HP ProBook 4720s - WT237EA/WS912EA doesn't seem to know exactly where it wants to go. With the ProBook in its name it actually alludes to full fledged business features, together with a high level of day to day suitability. What we have...

The HP ProBook 4720s sits in a small niche: there simply isn't much demand for general-purpose business notebooks with 17.3in. screens (as opposed to specialist high-performance portable workstations like Lenovo's ThinkPad W701). Large and...

Stunning examples like the aside, not too many manufacturers make business laptops that ooze a sense of class. HP is one of those few, however, and laptops in its ProBook range generally look and feel like premium products. Case in point is...

Le HP ProBook 4720s - WT237EA/WS912EA ne sait pas trop où il veux aller. Avec un nom comme "ProBook" on s'attendait à un produit professionnel. Mais finalement ce n'est qu'un portable grand public avec un écran 17 pouces...
