HP ProBook 4710s
Released July, 2009
The Pros:Relatively light for a desktop replacement laptop at around 6-1/2 lbs. Well-spaced, comfortable keyboard with a full numpad. Matte screen finish helps to reduce glare.
The Cons:Glossy chassis is prone to fingerprints and dust. Touchpad's buttons are awkward to use. Blocky, dated design doesn't look anywhere near as good as newer ProBook designs.

Touchpad's buttons are awkward to use.
Blocky, dated design doesn't look anywhere near as good as newer ProBook designs.
