The HP Compaq 6x3x Series is a line of business-class notebooks from HP released in fall of 2008. As it is intended for the business-minded consumers HP has opted to include business-oriented software and features such as their proprietary security ProtectTools and 3D DriveGuard technology that protects the hard drive in the case of accidental drops. The models range in size from 12.1" displays to 17" with options for both Intel and AMD based notebooks. None of these notebooks match the entertainment capabilities of HP's consumer-minded notebooks as they are focused on security and reliability.
In a confusing naming convention, HP's 2008 business laptops are split into two groups: the Business Series which are marked with a "b" at the end of their model names, and the Standard Series which are marked with an "s" at the end of their model names.
Many of the core features are the same, with the difference coming in ports and graphics technology.
- more connectivity ports
- docking connector
- S-video output
- worse graphic options - limited to integrated X4500 chipset

HP offers all of it's laptops in both an Intel and AMD flavor. The Intel-based models end with a 30, while the AMD-based models end with a 35.
