With the thickness measurement of merely 0.93-inch, it is slightly thinner than Apple’s Macbook Air measured at 0.94-inch. Apparently, HP is striving hard to shrink its form factor to achieve such thickness and weighted at only 3.8-pound, it offers business executive or professional an ultra light but yet powerful mobile computing solution while on the move. Besides, there are two versions available with drop-in replaceable SKUs (Stock Keeping Units) and users can choose either a full speed 2.26GHz Core 2 Duo for high performance or opt for a CULV based 1.2GHz Celeron duo-core version that can handle normal office processing with prolong battery life. Surprisingly, the latter version is claimed to be able to supply continuous power current up to 7 hours of battery life with only 4-cell battery pack.

HP Probook is available now and at a retail price of $699 and $899 for Celeron duo-core and Core 2 Duo version respectively, they are quite affordable even for average users and will definitely help to boost HP’s market share in this competitive segment.
