HP ProBook 5310m (Video, Specs and Photos)

By  |  13 Comments

The HP ProBook 5310m packs an impressive set of hardware for a laptop this thin and light. Unlike netbooks and other slim notebooks, this computer doesn’t sacrifice processing power in lieu of design or portability and rightfully claims the title of “the world’s thinnest full-performance notebook.”

The base model of the notebook is equipped with a 2 megapixel webcam, a 160GB hard drive, and 1GB of DDR3 RAM. The notebook comes with Vista, but can be downgraded to Window XP and will be eligible for a free Windows 7 upgrade on October 22nd. The ProBook 5310m starts at $699- a very reasonable price point for a well equipped sleek machine.

The ProBook 5310m base model uses the Intel Celeron3 SU2300 for its processor, however, you can upgrade to a more energy efficient and faster Intel Core 2 Duo SP9300 for $200. The 160GB hard drive is a speedy 7200 rpm model but users looking for more space can choose between a 250GB or 320GB drive. Alternatively, an 80GB or 128GB SSD drive can be selected. On top the installed 1GB memory, there’s another slot in which you can add up to an additional 4GB of memory.

The notebook has a 13.3-inch LED backlit screen. The display has a sharp resolution of 1366 x 768. The ProBook is also equipped with a neat feature called QuickWeb which allows you to access the Internet without having to boot up your notebook. QuickWeb lets you access the web through a lightweight user interface that starts up in about 20 seconds, without you having to wait for Windows to load just to get online.

    I was looking for thin and light notebook with extended battery life, my options was to get Asus 10-12 hours battery life or Acer TimeLine 7-8 Battery life, I use the notebook usually for web surfing and remote access to my servers. So the processor power or speed not the same priority as the battery life,
    I saw this notebook and HP representative assured me that it will run for 6-7 hours, I check HP website and I found the same, so why don't give it a try.
    The machine is nice and light, but I was surprised when I tested the battery and found out that it run for only three hours with all the wireless communications and blue tooth switched off and no applications are running. I did the test several times and I get the same results.
    I called HP support and the recommended to replace the battery, so I did. The new one it butter than the old one but still runs for 3.5 hours also without wireless of Bluetooth.
    Now for the last three weeks and I'm trying with HP support, with lo luck, each time I speak to support eng, I have to explain the situation to him, and I have to convince him that as per HP this notebook should run for 6-7 hours and I have to send him the links to HP website and finally he tell I will get back to you.
    Today I was surprised to know that my support case was closed by HP, simply because they don't have answer to.
    So if you're looking for extended battery life to get this machine because simply it will not give you what was announced by HP and also to avoid HP support that the only help you will get “I WILL GET BACK TO YOU”

    The DisplayPort does not provide audio. The “combo stereo headphone/mic jack” device does not exist.
