      #33547 - 06/24/09 03:28 PM

HP today announced a new HP ProBook notebook, the HP ProBook 4310s with Core 2 Duo and 13.3-inch LED backlit HD display. Here is more info on this new HP ProBoook laptop:

"At 4.34 pounds and 13.3-inches diagonally, the HP ProBook 4310s Notebook PC shares the same sophisticated design and business versatility as the current HP ProBook s-series. This includes a color choice of glossy noir or merlot finish and a spacious full-sized keyboard. It also features the latest professional innovations not previously available outside the HP EliteBook notebook portfolio, such as HP QuickLook 2 software, the HP SpareKey feature and HP File Sanitizer.

In addition, the HP ProBook 4310s offers an optional HP Fingerprint Sensor, which eliminates the need to remember login names and passwords as users can use fingerprint authentication to log in to their computers.

The HP ProBook 4310s offers enhanced features, such as a capacitive strip for improved usability, and additional wireless options, such as the HP Mobile Broadband powered by Gobi. The dual-array microphone is an added benefit when conducting video conference calls. It also incorporates a secure digital/MultiMediaCard (SD/MMC) Memory Card Reader, a double-data rate three (DDR3) memory and a high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) port to connect to high-definition (HD) displays.

With the versatile HP Essential USB 2.0 Port Replicator, users of HP ProBook s-series, HP Mini PCs and Compaq notebooks have immediate audio and network connectivity and can improve productivity with access to up to five concurrently working USB-connected devices.
