HP Probook 450 G2 15.6 inch Business Laptop via Amazon
HP Probook is a 2015 model premium business laptop with a great solid build quality, middle of the road dual core Intel Haswell i3-4005U processor (3M Cache) at 1.7GHz speed with hyper threading for two cores and four threads and a Passmark benchmark score of 2422, 4GB PC3-12800 DDR3L SDRAM at 1600MHz for the ability to run different software and browsers at once without lags, 500GB SATA HDD mechanical storage with only 5400rpm speed (slower than 7200rpm and SSD but plenty at this price level and at least you have the larger storage space). HP Probook comes with Windows 7 pre-installed, has the Win 8.1 pro license which you should upgrade to the latest Win 10 directly from the pre-installed Win 7 as it seems to have the best of Win 7 and 8.1 with the user friendly start screen and new handy features like Cortana and Microsoft Edge browser and more and will start up in less than 10 seconds and instantly from hibernation. It is very easy to set up and use and you will get used to it in no time but please note that Windows 10 upgrade can take a little time, be patient and you’re going to love it.
15.6 inch non-touch high definition SVA LED-backlit display has the 1366 x 768 pixel resolution so it is regular HD and not Full HD with IPS panel but is quite adequate- very clear screen with bright colors. Intel HD Graphics 4400 performs better than Intel HD 4000 but less than 4600 and 5000 and being a business laptop you are probably not thinking of playing advanced games and is sufficient for general video streaming, running graphics software or playing lighter games and it has a reasonable 720p HD webcam with integrated microphone for you to have live conferences with work people and the sound quality is better than what you can expect from a laptop at this level. For connectivity it includes a DVD Super Multi drive, 802.11bgn wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, Gigabit Ethernet with RJ-45 connector, an HDMI output, a VGA output, a USB 3.0 port, a USB 2.0 port, Digital Media Card Reader, Kensington security lock slot. The island style keybord is not backlit but a decent full size one that feels nice to type on and has a numeric keypad along with a touchpad that supports multiple gestures. HP Probook is easy on the eyes, weighs 5.4 pounds with dimensions of 14.80 x 9.72 x 1.41 inches. It is a very decent laptop at a great price for both work, study and entertainment except for very demanding games, with enough power for multimedia and office.
