HP unveils its thinnest ProBook yet
HP ProBook 5310m is less than an inch thick and will be available in the Middle East by the end of October
Hewlett Packard has released a new ProBook that it claims is the ‘world’s thinnest full-performance notebook’ at 0.9 inch thick.
The HP ProBook 5310m, targeting the business and corporate segment, comes with a 13.3 inch HD display and weighs 3.7 pounds. It will cost $699 with an Intel Celeron dual core and $899 with Intel Core 2 Duo.
It will be available in the Middle East after October 22nd, shipping with Microsoft’s new Windows 7 OS.
HP is taking the thin trend very seriously with other additions to its portfolio that measure less than an inch thick - the HP Pavilion dm3 entertainment notebook and luxury Envy 13 laptop.
Envy is expected to go up against Apple’s MacBook Air that’s only 0.76 at its thickest point. Both will still fall short of Dell’s Adamo XPS notebook at only 9.99mm (0.39 inches), which is expected to release later this year.
HP’s Envy 13 costs nearly $1,700, while pricing for both the Air and the Adamo starts at $1,500.
