HP is launching an update of its business and consumer notebooks featuring the new AMD A-series “APU” (Accelerating Processing Unit) that combines a quad-core CPU (A6 and A8 – A4 dual-core) and a discreet-class GPU on the same dye. According to HP and AMD, the new processor offers better performance while ensuring a longer battery life. For example the new ProBook B-series lasts 7 hours (15-inch and 14-inch) and 6.5 hours (17-inch).
Several product lines will get the latest innovation from AMD:

The new design that was launched a few months ago with the Intel latest Core generation is great! HP did a great job on the look and feel and the choice of material; I really like the metal versions.
