Smart budget friendly notebook
Display and Design
The HP ProBook 4540S (D5J93PA) arrives with a 15.6-inch HD LED backlit Anti Glare display which features a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels and enables you to work for an extended period of time by stopping the harmful unwanted rays from reaching your eyes. It is encased in an anodized aluminium finished body which has a weight of 2.5 kg and a thickness of 28.7 mm.
CPU and Platform
Doing the duty under the hood is a 3rd generation Intel Core i3 processor racing at 2.4 GHz and based on HM77 Express chipset. It is supported by a 2GB DDR3 RAM operating at 1333MHz which is a bit disappointing although it can be expanded up to 8GB via 2 SODIMM slots. The presence of 1GB AMD Radeon HD 7650M graphics card ensures better management of rich videos and movies. It comes preloaded with DOS which is another area where HP has saved a lot.
Camera, Storage and Multimedia
The HP ProBook 4540S (D5J93PA) flaunts the usual HP TrueVision HD webcam paired with digital microphone for comfortable video calls. It impresses with its Serial-ATA hard disk which has a storage capacity of 750GB. The presence of SuperMulti DVD RW Drive with dual layer support enables you to stream and store info on disks at a fast pace. The stereo speakers powered by SRS Premium Sound PRO ensure high audio quality.
Battery and Connectivity
The HP ProBook 4540S (D5J93PA) can provide a continuous power supply for a maximum period of 7 hours with a 6 cell Li-ion battery which is extremely appealing. The connectivity features include Bluetooth v4.0, WLAN, Gigabit Ethernet, 2 USB 2.0 ports, 2 USB 3.0 slots, HDMI out, digital media reader and VGA port.
The HP ProBook 4540S (D5J93PA) is a decent laptop with the ability to handle all kinds of simple computing needs, both business and gaming. In order to account for the price, the company has skipped out any user friendly OS and include a poor RAM. The mighty battery backup increases its value to a great extent.
