HP Unveils Mini 5101 and ProBook 4310s

SINGAPORE, Asia Pacific, Jun. 24, 2009 – Adding to its recently introduced HP ProBook s-series notebook family, HP today announced a new model that offers enhanced functionality, while keeping with the line’s stylish design and affordability for small and midsize businesses and mobile professionals.

At 1.97kg 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.

Two new accessories complement the merlot ProBooks: a merlot mouse and a three-in-one special edition mouse pad that also acts as a screen wipe and screen protector for users when they are on the go.

Pricing and availability
The HP ProBook 4310s will retail in Asia Pacific from end July 2009 onwards in a choice of glossy noir and merlot finish with a starting price of US$749 and US$799 respectively. Notebook availability varies by region.
