This review is from: HP ProBook 4530s (LJ521UT#ABA) Notebook Intel Core i7 2670QM (2.20GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD AMD Radeon HD 6490M with 1 GB dedicated GDDR5 video memory 15.6" Windows 7 Professional 64-Bit
Pros: Sounds like a decent laptop for the price.
Cons: Off the bat the unit was using 50% of the physical memory at idle on the desktop, removed the unnecessary startup processes and it was still claiming use of 40% of the memory (nearly 2gb of ram doing nothing on the desktop?) with the processes in task manager nowhere near that usage. Was going to just upgrade the ram and then the unit began to blue screen every half hour. Attempted to do a system restore out of the bios to rule out anything that I had done, and it crashed halfway through that stating that the recovery partition had been corrupted. Wonderful!
Other Thoughts: I would hope that I received a lemon but it doesn't look very promising. Trying to get it switched for another of the same model because the base features were good for the price.READ FULL REVIEW
