In April 2009, HP introduced the ProBook s-series (standard/essential) notebooks, which consisted of the Intel powered 4410s, 4510s, and 4710s (14", 15.6", and 17.3" screens, respectively) and the AMD powered 4415s and 4515s (14" and 15.6" screens, respectively).[1][3] This was followed by the introduction of the 13.3" ProBook 4310s in June of the same year.[4]
The s-series was updated in 2010 with Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors, a brushed aluminum case, chiclet keyboard, and multi-touch ClickPad.[5] Updates to the line in 2012 included a new exterior aluminum design.[6]
