HP ProBook 4520s-XT943UT is powered by 2.4 GHz Intel core i7-370M processor, which gives decent performance for home and office computing. The core i7-370M is a dual core processor, that features some exotic features of the Arrandale architecture, including the integrated memory controller for processor to memory communication and fast DMI Bus to communicate with the chipset. The core i7-370M has 3 MB of L3 Cache.

Even though the processor in this notebook can be said to be moderately fast, the HP 4520s-XT943UT comes with only 2 GB of memory. The Windows itself eats up close to 1 GB of RAM, leaving only 1 GB of memory for applications. This is fine as long as you do not open` up several applications requiring large amount of memory. For home and office computing not requiring use of heavy applications, this should be fine.

The display in the HP ProBook 4520s-XT943UT is 15.6″ size LED backlit which has a resolution of 1366×768. The LCD Display gives out crisp display.
