What better way is there to start a fresh week off than with an all new lineup of impressive new laptops from HP? Today HP revealed their ProBook 430, ProBook 450, and ProBook 470 laptops aimed towards small to mid sized business owners.
Starting in September, all three of the new models will be available for purchase. The HP ProBook 400 series laptops will go on sale starting at $619.
One of the main differences between each of the models is the display size. The screen sizes are 13 inches for the ProBook 430, 15 inches for the ProBook 450, and the ProBook 470 will have a 17 inch display. Each device will have the latest Intel Core i7 quad core processors.
Thanks to an aluminum keyboard deck, the new HP ProBook’s have a slimmer design than previous models. They will have a docking option via USB Type C ports as well as gigbit LAN and dual monitor capabilities. You’ll have the option to expand your memory with up to 32 GB of DDR4 RAM. Overall, the specs seem pretty impressive.
As far as security tools are concerned, the ProBook 400 series laptops will come with beneficial tools such as Windows Hello, Client Security and HP BIOSphere.
Furthermore, the HP ProBook 430 packs two small outline dual in-line memory module (SO-DIMM) slots for computer memory. Of course they will all come with other standard specs including an HDMI port, Bluetooth 4.2 connectivity, two USB 3.0 ports, and an SD card reader slot.
For storage space, you’ll have the option to choose between either a 1 TB HDD or 128 GB SSD. Personally I’d always choose an SSD over any HDD device. I’m currently the owner of an HP Pavilion touch screen laptop, model number 15-bc018ca, which performs amazingly but my only gripe is I wish it had an SSD. Now that I’ve experienced the benefits of an SSD with my home PC I’d never choose anything else.
