HP ProBook 5310m Crams Big Boy Processor In Netbook Body

Look familiar? The HP ProBook looks like their really nice Mini 5101 netbook, but it's actually packing a full-blown Core 2 Duo, which HP says makes it the "world's thinnest full performance notebook."

Unfortunately, that extra inch it's packed on to be 13 inches with a full keyboard means it's also priced like a real notebook now, starting at $US699. But man, it's a damn fine piece of hardware. Here's the full spec sheet:
