HP Launches ProBook Laptop Series

HP Launches ProBook Laptop Series: HP today announced a new brand of affordable notebook PCs that merge business functionality with sophisticated design to stand out from the crowd.

The HP ProBook series joins the award-winning HP EliteBook series to form one of the most versatile business notebook portfolios in the industry. Inspired by minimalism, the design of the new HP ProBook series combines matte and glossy surfaces while stripping out the extraneous, leaving only a stylish and clean look.

Distinguished by a choice of merlot or glossy noir finishes, a unique keyboard design and a set of professional innovations previously found only on higher-priced models, the HP ProBook series delivers HP’s best combination of business features, functionality and value.
ProBook Laptop Series“The stunning HP ProBook s-series delivers exceptional style and aggressive pricing that will captivate small and medium business users,” said Ted Clark, senior vice president and general manager, Notebook Global Business Unit, Personal Systems Group, HP. “But it’s not just about good looks or low cost, the HP ProBooks deliver the right blend of features and professional innovations to provide a great user experience.”

The standard series (s-series) of the new HP ProBook models incorporate a mercury-free design, and features high-definition (HD) LED backlit displays in a choice of 14-inch, 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch diagonal widescreen sizes.

The keyboard’s innovative layout provides a visually open and spacious keyboard with keys raised from the surface. Usability is the same as with traditional keyboards and the raised surface means fewer places for dirt and dust to hide making it easy to clean and more maintenance free than ever before.

Select HP ProBook models incorporate the latest in wireless connectivity with HP Mobile Broadband. Built-in Qualcomm Gobi technology enables HP notebooks to use a single module, the HP un2400, to support multiple mobile broadband network technologies and mobile operators. This increases users’ international roaming options and offers greater choice and flexibility in choosing a mobile data plan.

In addition to Microsoft® Windows® operating system offerings, select HP ProBook s-series models will offer Novell SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 11 preinstalled. SuSE Linux is an easy-to-use open source operating system that gives users the connectivity, usability and features they expect.

HP Professional Innovations included on the ProBook s-series include HP QuickLook 2 software, which provides access to e-mail, calendar, task and contact information within seconds at the touch of a button. The HP SpareKey feature addresses the hassle of forgotten passwords by using a sequence of three predetermined personal identification questions to gain immediate entry into the system. For added data security, File Sanitizer for HP Protect Tools permanently deletes individual files, folders and personally identifiable information from the notebook, which also allows customers to recycle the notebook with confidence that their business data has been removed.

Designed for recyclability, the ProBook s-series has been engineered for reduced impact on the environment by eliminating or reducing substances of concern, using fewer resources and reducing energy consumption.

The entire HP ProBook portfolio holds an Electronic Products Environmental Assessment Tool (EPEAT®) silver rating and is ENERGY STAR® qualified for energy savings. HP ProBook models configured with the Microsoft Windows operating system include a power management capability to save energy by automatically switching the PC into a low-power mode after a period of inactivity. Energy-saving HP Smart AC Adapters allow the notebooks to automatically make power adjustments as needed.

Dispose your old Electronics home used dumped items for Recycling, that to Free from Crutchfield Store

CrutchfieldAfter a record-shattering turnout for an electronics recycling event in January, the Charlottesville-Albemarle community will get another opportunity to properly dispose of old electronics for free.

The location for the April 26 event is once again the Crutchfield store at Rio Hill Shopping Center, and it runs from noon to 4. The event is being held on a Sunday rather than a Saturday because traffic is generally much lighter on Sundays.

To keep the lines moving, there’s a limit of three items per household. There was no limit at the January event, and volunteers unloading the vehicles struggled to keep up when trucks and vans arrived with full payloads. This time, traffic will be directed to the front door of the Crutchfield store, where three items can be quickly unloaded.

To keep potentially harmful substances out of landfills, area residents are encouraged to bring in electronic items such as televisions, computer monitors, computers, printers, copiers, phones, stereos and VCRs. Batteries, CDs. DVDs, and toner cartridges are also acceptable. Electric items such as lamps, hair dryers, fans, toasters and power tools are not acceptable. Please click to see the complete list of acceptable items (See here for the list:

The turnout for the January event proved that Charlottesville-area residents are well-informed about the potential hazards of e-Waste and are motivated to properly dispose of it. More than 218,577 pounds (109 tons) of electronics were collected at the event, which is believed to be a new state record for a one-day event.

The January event was funded by an anonymous local foundation and supported by Albemarle County, AERC Recycling, the Charlottesville Community Design Center, the City Of Charlottesville, Crutchfield, Papa Johns Pizza, the Rivanna Solid Waste Authority, the Thomas Jefferson Planning District Commission and University of Virginia Recycling.

The upcoming event is sponsored by Sony and Crutchfield. Participants can get a coupon good for $50 off select TVs when dropping off items for recycling during this event. The coupon is good on Sunday, April 26 only.
